Australia 65 Points Calculator

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

Take note! The minimum cut-off ranking score is an indication only – and is not a guarantee that an invitation was issued. Candidates that do not have an active application in the system or have previously received an ACT nomination – did not receive an invitation to this Australia Immigration draw.
