The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has established a fixed number of nominations allotted each month (pro-rata against the annual allocation) – and the highest-ranked Matrix in each in-demand occupation was invited to apply for ACT nomination.

Depending on the remaining monthly allocation, occupation cap & demand, and the date & time of the Matrix submission – the minimum cut-off for selection is determined. The higher the rank of the Matrix score invited – the greater the demand for occupation.

Furthermore, surpassing the minimum cut-off ranking score is an indication only, and does not guarantee an invitation was issued. Australia Immigration candidates that had previously received an ACT nomination or do not have an active application in the system – did not receive an invitation to the draw.
