Australia Invitation Round pro-rata meaning

I am not really able to make out any meaning from the above page as in :-

Visa Subclass Points score Date of effect
Skilled - Independent (subclass 189) 70 6/03/2018 11:33 AM
Skilled - Regional Provisional (subclass 489) 80 8/06/2018 6:38 PM<

Here 70 is cut off for 189 visa

  1. What is date of effect ?
  2. What is pro rata ?

2613 Software and Applications Programmers 75 11/04/2018 6:05 PM
Above for 11 july cut off is different.

My date of effect is 22 july after point got updated to 75, What does it mean ? I mean how does the selection depend on the date of effect for a particular occupation and visa.

Hi @priyanka

Australia SkillSelect ‘Date Of Effect’ for invitations

Date of effect is the date you submitted your SkillSelect EOI application.
This date changes whenever you make a change to your EOI and re-submit.

It is shown clearly on your SkillSelect profile. Just log in and see the date mentioned there.

Australia SkillSelect ‘Pro-Rata’ invitations meaning

Pro-rata means that dividing the total number of invitations available are divided into number of months, to make sure that equal number of invitations are available every month.

For example, Lets say that for ‘Software Engineers’ job, Australia plans to issue about 15000 invitations from July to June.
Then, they will divide the 15000 by 12 to reach at the number of 1250 per month.
So, they will restrict issuing invitations to ‘Software Engineers’ category to about 1250 per month.

This is just an example to explain pro-rata. Actual number of invitations may be different.

Date of effect for 11 July draw

So, the 11/04/2018 6:05 PM (11 April, 2018) is the END date that was considered for 11 July 2018 Australia SkillSelect draw.
Anybody who had achieved a score of 75 before that date was invited in this 11 July draw.

Since, you reached the 75 point on 22 July, 2018, your EOI was not even considered in this draw.
You still need to wait and watch for future draws.

Does that answer your question?

I have 75 points under 189 subclass and 80 under 190 subclass.
I’m Software Engineer. Kindly advise when I can expect my invitation(tentative).
My EOI is created on 16/07/2018 and updated on 22/07/2018

I expect your application with 75 points to get invitation by approximately on or before Nov 2018 draw, keeping in mind the current trend.
