Accountants slashed in visa allocation for 2015/2016 …
The number of places for Accountants has been SLASHED from over 5000 places to just 2525 this program year.
The effect of this is that most independent skilled visa applicants (189 and 489-relative sponsored) who apply as Accountants will require 65 points or more. Those on 60 points may find they have a long wait or may miss out altogether.
Alternatively DIBP may just issue invitations for Accountants until they use all 2525 places. And based on last year’s numbers that will mean the places running out in just 6 months time.
