As reported, Australian Capital Territory is now open for the migrants to apply for ACT Nomination Program to get permanent residence from 29th November 2018. However, the recent changes have been done by the immigration department of ACT in terms of inviting skilled migrants.
The new system came into force after reviewing and consulting with different entities. This means that after a thorough discussion the ACT has excluded its invitation round result method of first come first serve and has now introduced the new ACT point based immigration system.
The new point based system is different from other point based systems of Australia PR programs. The applicants applying for ACT must score at least 20 points based on the ACT parameters along with fulfilling the basic point eligibility requirements.
The applicants applying for ACT must have a strong presence in the territory before actually applying for the nomination programs. It is reported that 20 points criteria is based on study in Canberra or duration of stay, language ability skills and partner assessment etc. The applicants will receive invitation on the bases of these points; the highest ranking applicant will be invited to apply.
Also, the candidates whose occupation is listed on the ACT occupational demand list will be entitled to receive 10 additional points. Though, no nominated occupation on ACT demand list will give any additional points.
The ACT occupational in-demand list 2018 has also been updated where few occupations have been removed from ACT labour market altogether.
