Point scores and the dates of effect cut off for the pro rata occupations in the 11 January, 2020 invitation round
Pro-rata occupations include occupations for which there is more demand for places than there are places available. These occupations generally have a point score higher than the non-pro rata occupations.
SkillSelect first allocates available places to Skilled – Independent visas (subclass 189) and then the remaining to Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored. If in case all places are taken up by subclass 189 visas then no invitations will be issued for subclass 491 visas in these occupations.
Due to high demand, the below occupation groups will be subject to pro rata arrangements to make sure availability of invitations across the program year.
