Pro-rata occupations can be classified as those 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.

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. SkillSelect first allocates available places to Skilled – Independent visas (subclass 189) and then the remaining to Skilled – Regional (Provisional) visas (subclass 489).
