Through Skill-Select, a candidate can get an invitation under his/her nominated occupation and selected visa category. The candidate doing the same can then go for the further process.

The results of the Skill-Select are out onto the website of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection in Australia, after the first round of invitations in the month of February’16.

The authority always designs a merit list to shortlist the candidates who can apply as per the EOI (Expression of Interest) which they need to submit.

The candidates can process further as soon as they get an invitation through Skill-Select. Just in a situation where the candidates score same points, they can be justified or shortlisted on the basis of the time of submission of their EOI.

The Expression of Interest for the next date is always submitted in advance or at an early date.
