Skilled Visa Invitations Rise

Our May 20th blog stated, “Australia’s Unemployment Rate Drops Again”. The results are in, and skilled visa invitations for certain occupations have increased by as much as 81%.

As the economy rebounds, Australia is starting to experience worker shortages, particularly in the Skilled Independent and Skilled Regional visa sectors.

Whilst a regional visa applicant can receive an invitation within a couple of months, a skilled visa applicant was previously waiting up to 2 years, but this is expected to reduce considerable over the next year.

Applicants who have not received an invitation may wish to assess their options as the next invitation round is expected to be in July.
