Did anyone look at the planning levels/allocations for 2020-2021?
Like many members here, I am also monitoring updates from DHA re skilled migration programs. I have this puzzle in mind about the planning levels/allocations for 2020-2021 in relation to the number of invitations that would be issued this April (last quarter round).
As of January 2021
Skilled Independent (189) = 1192 / 6500 = 18.34%
Skilled Nominated (190) = 2648 / 11200 = 23.64%
Regional (491 – Family) = 1692 / 11200 = 15.11% (no data outside of family-sponsored so could be higher)
Historically, the numbers are always above 80% (the least figure I could remember). Now we might say that “the pandemic, you know.”, BUT the allocations were made in the middle of the pandemic, while addressing the current (and supposedly future) issues. Furthermore, part of the recovery response was highlighted too (i.e., PMSOL, targeted draws and may probably also why the 189 allocations were reduced from 18k+ down to 6500).
Ang palaisipan sa isip ko eh: maghahabol kaya sila? Last quarter na. Ano sa tingin nyo?
