What is Australia SkillSelect EOI?
An expression of interest (EOI) is an application method used by a skilled worker or business person from overseas who wants to immigrate to Australia. It is an online application form that must be completed online using SkillSelect system.
Candidates submit their EOIs by providing a range of information including – personal information, desired/nominated profession, work experience, education, English language proficiency, a skills assessment relevant to their nominated profession, and any Business & investment experience (if applicable).
Once candidates have completed their EOI, they are given a points’ score and ranked by an automatic and objective process. The highest ranked candidates are then invited to apply for the relevant visa through monthly invitation rounds.
Candidates who received an invitation in August 11 invitation round, now have 60 days to submit their complete application to Australian Immigration authorities.
Australia SkillSelect Invitation rounds are anticipated to run on the 11th day of each month. However, dates for the rounds are subject to change. Number of Invitations issued in each round may also vary depending on the number of applications being processed by the department.
