Australian Immigration Made Easy
Australian immigration has announced that the pass mark to qualify for EOI – SkillSelect (Subclasses 189, 190 and 489) will be 60 points.
The new lower requirement has been implemented from 1 July 2012. The 1 July 2012 points test is designed to select the best and brightest skilled migrants who will make the optimum economic contribution to Australia. It does not give undue weight to any one factor and recognizes a broader range of skills and attributes, focusing on:
- better English levels
- more extensive skilled employment
- higher level qualifications obtained in Australia and overseas
- better targeted age ranges
