Changes in skilled migration points system announced
Changes coming into effect from November 2019 will affect applicants with a partner and single applicants.
From November 2019, the points test will be adjusted to award additional points to the primary applicants, where their partner has competent English, but cannot meet the requirements for skilled partner points
At present, any visa applicant can claim additional points for his or her partner’s skills and English competency.
The applicants can claim points if their partners fulfil given conditions. The partners should be younger than 45; they should be good at English, and they should have a skill that can be assessed
New changes will benefit single applicants also.
Single applicants will be awarded additional points to ensure they are not disadvantaged.
However, how the system will calculate points is not clear yet.
