Default 189 Points Test Changes - November 2019

So following on from this post, the changes to the points test system will also apply to the current 189 Skilled Independent Stream starting from November 2019.

Quote:
The changes to the points test are to introduce:

∑ more points for having a skilled spouse or de facto partner (10 points);

∑ more points for applicants nominated by a State or Territory government or sponsored by a family member residing in regional Australia (15 points);

∑ more points for having certain STEM qualifications (10 points);

∑ points for applicants who do not have a spouse or de facto partner (10 points); and

∑ points for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English (5 points).

This will ensure that primary applicants without a partner (singles) will be ranked equally to other primary applicants who have the same human capital attributes. If all other points claims are equal, invitations for points tested visas will be ranked by the Migration Points Test as described below:

∑ First – primary applicants with a skilled spouse or de facto partner

∑ Equal First – primary applicants without a spouse or de facto partner

∑ Second - Primary applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who can demonstrate competent English but does not have the skills for skilled partner points (age and skills)

∑ Third - Primary applicants with a partner who is ineligible for either competent English or Skilled partner points. These applicants will be ranked below all other cohorts, if all other points claims are equal.

Why can't it be from July 2019. I will lose age points by Feb 2020 and it will be too late.

When can we get details on this? Like what's the STEM criteria?

Thanks NB, it looks attractive for now. But It feels like they've got something up their sleeves.

Hi,
Would a govt change impact this decision? ( though I doubt it. May make few changes but overall looks like the seed of chcnage is already been sown and nothing much would change )

Donít forget that there is an election in May
If there is a change in the government, they may review all these announcements

Cheers
