Changes to SkillSelect Invitation Rounds Frequency

The Department of Home Affairs have announced that: “SkillSelect invitation rounds for Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) and Skilled – Regional Provisional (subclass 489) Visas will occur once each month, on the 11th day of each month, effective 11 August 2018. There is no change to the overall number of invitations provided each month.”
Previously, there had usually been two invitation rounds per month. The last invitation rounds taking place on the 06th and 20th June 2018.
We are still waiting for the July round of invitation results to be published and it will be interesting to see how many invitations were made so that we have an idea of how things may move forward.
