Australia Significant Immigration changes lined up for the year 2020

A number of essential changes have been occurred for visa issuance and benefits for the year 2020. Here is all what you need to know.

Immigration point Score

Chasing high immigration points has always been a common situation for most aspiring immigrants.

According to Migration law, 65 is the minimum points that you are required to meet before you submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). Although, getting an invitation to apply is more difficult due to high talented applicants who have expressed their Interest.

Candidates who scored 90 or 85 immigration points are given as first priority over the one who have only received 65 points. It does not mean that they are unqualified but the timing of lodgment also taken into consideration.
