South Australia High points category quota

The High Points category has been successful in attracting high quality applicants to South Australia for Supplementary Skilled List (SSL) occupations and occupations on the State Nominated Occupation List which are listed as ‘Special Conditions Apply’.

Immigration SA has received a high volume of applications for the high points category and will be monitoring applications received over the coming weeks.

–    Once we are close to reaching the ‘high points’ category quota, the minimum points requirement will be automatically increased to 90 points.
–    Once the quota is reached, the ‘high points’ category will be closed for the rest of the 17/18 program year (until 30 June 2018).
