If there are always new applicants with 75+ points coming in, maybe never

Hi Alan,

Do you know when we can expect to see the occupation lists updated on both the Australian and state government websites? I was expecting to see changes on the 1st July, but it appears neither have been updated as of the 2nd?

Hi Alan,

To follow on from the previous questions. How do you know if the 489 SOL has been updated on the South Australia website please? There is a date that says "list current as" but that automatically changes every day.

Thanks

You need to check each day, or have an agent acting for you who is actively monitoring your case.

Best regards.

I think you may be looking for something that isn't there.

ie so far as I know there is no indication on the SA website of when the list was updated.

Best regards.

Wow, I had no idea the dates would be so relaxed!!! I assumed the respective list's would be released all together on 1st July. Massive anti-climax to say the least!!!

Hey ho, what's a few more weeks of stress and anxiety in the greater scheme of things ?

Can anyone help please. I have completed skills assessment and put in EOI but I am not being awarded the 10 points for my skills. I have put my aqf in as a qualification and skills assessment and neither is granting me the points. Any help greatly appreciated. It is clearly something I am doing wrong and there are no contact details for help from skill select ?

what was the points given under your qualification, zero? You should select  diploma or bachelors...

The recent update made by Australian immigration authority on 1st July 2018 where the applicant need to score 65 points out of 100 to be eligible to apply for Australia PR. As per the point system earlier it was 60 points which has been increase to 65 points. Although 65 points are the minimum eligibility to apply for Australia PR visa, but the immigration authority pick the applicants who are scoring highest immigration scores on priority bases. therefore applicants now need to score 70 to 75 points to get faster invitation.

I don't see a MARN on the website link and can't find them in the OMARA registry.
