Canberra Matrix Invitation Round – How does it work?

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has a fixed number of nomination places available each month – pro-rata against the annual allocation. The highest ranked Matrix in each occupation in demand in Australia is invited to apply for ACT nomination.

The cut-off for the nomination depends on the date & time of the Matrix submission, occupation cap & demand, and the remaining monthly allocation. The more the demand for an occupation in Australia – the higher the rank of the Matrix score invited.

Take note! The cut-off Matrix score is an indication only. It does not guarantee that an invitation will be issued. Also, invitations will not be issued if the candidate has an active application in the system or has previously received an ACT nomination.
