Canberra Invitation Round – 190 and 491 Visas

Canberra Matrix Invitation Round: September 15, 2023

In each month, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) has a limited number of nomination spots available, proportionate to the annual allocation. Individuals with the highest-ranking scores in each occupation category were invited to apply for ACT nomination. The specific cut-off for selection was determined by factors such as the remaining monthly allocation, the time and date of Matrix submission, occupation limits, and demand. Occupations in higher demand had higher-ranking Matrix scores invited.

It’s important to note that the minimum ranking score provided serves as an indication but does not guarantee an invitation issuance. No invitations will be sent if you already have an active application in the system or have previously received ACT nomination.

Regarding requests for ranking information, please be aware that invitations are not guaranteed. The Matrix does not prioritize or issue invitations based on personal circumstances, including visa expiry dates or changes in circumstances such as significant birthdays.
