Cap limit for 189 visa

Dear All,

 

I have just started looking into 189 visa for skilled workers. I see that we need to submit EOI and on approval of which, skill select needs to be used for further process. My question is - are there any cap on 189 visa or is it just unlimited whereby I can submit EOI anytime ? I did a quick look up at the immigration website and could not find any.

 

Thanks

Joshua

The planning level for the 2013-2014 program year for 189 visas is 44,990. Planning levels for the 2014-2015 PY (starts 1 July) will be announced in the May Budget. Within the overall number, an Occupation Ceiling applies to each occupation.

Per http://www.immi.gov.au/skills/skillselect/ - all the code are 4 digits , example -

 

 

 

2613 - Software and Applications Programmers

 

However, http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/sol.pdf - the code is 6 digits

Developer Programmer - 261312

 

So by 4 digits do they indicate the entire series? Thus, 2613 indicating anything that starts with 2613?

Yes, that's right. The occupation ceiling applies to the group of occupations with codes beginning with 2613 rather than a single specific occupation.

 

On the Report page, you should note the special arrangements relating to the 2613 and 5 other groups which come about due to high demand for visas nominating those occupations. In past years, there has been a marked imbalance towards some occupations and DIBP now take measures to avoid such imbalances.

If allocated number is 5,400 and only 57 results giving to date, what's the hold up? Or what happens if the numbers aren't filled before the new years numbers are out?

 

57 is all that have met all of the requirements so far for the year. 5400 is the maximum, not the allocation.
