I launched my EOI on 31 March 2015 under Accountants Code 22111 claiming 60 points. What are my chances of getting an invitation considering the reduced quota? and by when can I expect to get the invitation if it is selected?
The ceiling doesn't apply for State nomination subclass, i.e., it does not include Accountants applying for 190 visa. They have been reduced dramatically last year too from some 10,500 to 5,500 roughly.
Occupation ceiling for ICT Business and Systems Analysts (ANZSCO 2611), Accountants (ANZSCO 2211) and Software and Applications Programmers (ANZSCO 2613) has been reached and no further invitations will be issued for this occupation for the Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) and Skilled – Regional provisional (subclass 489) until the next financial year.
