Annoyed by points to submit an EOI and receive an invitation to apply for this visa?
If so, get ready, your hunger could be satisfied by the recent changes to the scoring system.
The new legislation introduces changes to the points test for the existing general migration visas and the new visa of subclass 491. From November 16, 2019 The points test includes:
- 10 points for specialized pedagogical qualifications. It used to be 5 points.
- 10 points for candidates with a qualified spouse or de facto partner (under 45 years with competent English, appropriate assessment of competence and with a job on the same list of qualified professions). It used to be 5 points.
- 10 points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner or who have a spouse or de facto partner who is an Australian citizen or is a permanent resident (New)
- 5 points for candidates with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English language skills (New)
- 15 points for applicants proposed by a government of a state or territory or sponsored by a suitable family member for living and working in a particular regional area. This is intended to strengthen the regional economy Development and help to grow these communities. These items are relevant for applicants for a 489 visa or a new 491 visa. It used to be 10 points.
- Graduates who have completed a qualification in Western Australia (now a designated regional area) with Certificate III or higher, including English Intensive Courses for foreign students, can apply 5 points for study in the Region of Australia, if their studies total 2 years.
POINTS BINDING AND INVITATION RANK:
If all items except the partner qualifications are the same, the invitations are sorted in the following order:
- First, applicants with a qualified spouse or de facto partner.
- Equal First: Applicants without spouse or de facto partner.
- Second, candidates with a spouse or de facto partner who can prove competent English, but who do not have the skills to obtain qualified partner points.
- Third, candidates with a spouse or a de facto partner, for whom there are either no points for competent English or for an experienced partner.
