Cutoffs and Invitation Process

As we have observed in previous rounds, candidates with the highest ranking regarding their points score received ITAs for their specific visa. Clients having similar points scores get their invitations depending on the fact as to when they get their points score. Expressions of Interest (EOI), which relate to later dates of effect, receive invitations after those, presented at earlier dates.

Industrial, Mechanical and Production EngineersSince, following occupation groups show high levels of demand. Hence, they get their processing through pro rata arrangements. This helps to ensure the availability of invitations during the whole program year.
