Australia Immigration from Qatar April 2021

Australia Immigration SkillSelect Invitation Round Update

Invitation rounds for Australia Immigration under Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored visas used to run once a month. However, now Invitation rounds for Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) and Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 491) – Family Sponsored visas, are anticipated to be run quarterly. Dates for the rounds are subject to change.

The Government is closely monitoring migration and visa settings to ensure they are consistent with public health measures, are flexible and do not displace job opportunities for Australians, so that Australia can effectively respond to the immediate and subsequent impacts of COVID-19. As such, targeted invitation rounds have occurred since May 2020.
