Applicant A. 85 points single

A & B will get invite first based on the ranking according to legislation.

So will there be a pro rata even within each points also ?
If not then, all places may be taken up by single and skilled partners only at that point stage

If they do these tricks, they will make a mess of the system by complicating it beyond comprehension

True mate. I am just hoping that they will actually continue the invite at a reasonable rate after November at least. If not, what's the point. Point change and everything is a waste. Only the top 1 or 2 percent might get the invite.

They have to increase to meet their target if they continue with 100 only then just 2100 invites in total then no point to amended point system.

I wouldn't say pro rata, but preferences. The DHA just wants to be sure to the highest extend that ONLY highly skilled people can get the visa.

And applicants with unskilled people tagging along have a disadvantage, which is totally fair. Since up until now, single people were disadvantaged because unskilled people who tagged along took invites meant for skilled applicants.

Based on your post, it seems like you are single and big news coming up for you in November

I believe DHA is having one of the following tactics:

1) they want to make sure they invite people who are highly skilled and ensure unskilled partners don't tag along. If this is the scenario, then invites will resume to a normal level only after November point change.

2) they want to push as many people as possible to the new regional visa's. For this, they have reduced the invites now so that many will feel hopeless and opt for the regional visa. If this is their strategy, then the invites might or might not increase to normal levels until they have people actively applying for the new visa. Because of the point change, it is highly likely that applicants will have a ray of hope and won't opt for the new regional visas for at least a few months, until the situation is clear.

3) the third option is highly unlikely. This option is that DHA already has enough applicants in the pipeline to meet the 18000 quota set for this year. If that's the case they won't invite any more than a 100 for the rest for the year. Everyone needs to understand that just because the quota of 18000 exists, they don't have any obligation to fill it. If they don't believe filling it is good, they won't.

4) the next option is that they are just reducing the invites to clear the pipeline for the new point system. I don't know the likelihood of this being the case. If that's the case, then they won't invite many people until they have a clear pipeline to begin the processing for the new point system. This may take till December to happen.

I am single. I do admit I am more relieved than happy. Because I always been just invited. The only thing that stood in the way was the fact that unskilled partners in the visa application took a spot that would have been mine. I am just relieved that this issue has been sorted and now me and others like myself have a fair shot at actually getting invited

I agree with option 1 and 4 but option 3 is unlikely to happen
