Changes to the Points Test System

Recently published legislation introduces changes to the Points System relevant to existing visas Subclass 489,189 and 190 and the new Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) Subclass 491 visa, commencing 16 November 2019.

As the key purpose of the skilled migration program is to maximise the economic benefits of migration to Australia, points are awarded for attributes that are linked with the applicant’s ability to make the greatest economic contribution.

The changes to the points test will include:

  • 10 pointsfor Specialist Educational qualifications. Currently 5 points.
  • Partner points (1 option can only be claimed):
  1. 10 points for applicants with a skilled spouse or de facto partner (under 45 with Competent English, suitable skills assessment and with an occupation on the same skilled occupation list). Currently 5 points.
  2. 10 points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner or who have a spouse or de facto partner who is an Australian citizen or a Permanent resident (New)
  3. 5 points for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English (New)
  • 15 pointsfor applicants who are nominated by a State or Territory government, or who are sponsored by a suitable family member. These points are relevant to applicants for a Subclass 489 visa or the new Subclass 491 visa. Currently 10 points.

New ordering system for all points test applicants

If all other points claims are equal, invitations for points tested visas will be ranked by the Migration Points Test as described below:

  • First – primary applicants with a skilled spouse or de facto partner
  • Equal First – primary applicants without a spouse or de facto partner
  • Second – Primary applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who can demonstrate competent English but does not have the skills for skilled partner points (age and skills)
  • Third – Primary applicants with a partner who is ineligible for either competent English or Skilled partner points. These applicants will be ranked below all other cohorts, if all other points claims are equal.

Notes

If you are granted the New Skilled Work Regional visa subclass 491 you cannot be granted any other permanent visa of any skilled category for 3 years.

You are free to move to other states, but you must reside in Regional Australia until qualifying for Permanent Residence
