Changes have been made to immigration instructions to resume the selection of Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) expressions of interest (EOIs). Immigration instructions have been amended to:
• allow selections from the SMC EOI Pool (the Pool) to resume
• increase the points threshold for selections from the Pool to 180 points after 9 November 2022
• update skilled employment requirements to reflect the 2021 median wage rate of $27.76 in line with other visa categories.
All amendments will take effect on and after 24 October 2022.
