ACT 190 Skilled Migrant Visa via Canberra Matrix Points (Anyone submitted and been selected?)

As of now around 1500 matrix invitations have been issued.

Earlier as we came to know, there are 1/3rd people who have actually submitted their application. Plenty of fake matrix applications are floating around.

I have sent an email to ACT asking about the current status and I haven't received any feedback regarding the remaining places.

Also I tried calling them, they close at 5pm and I missed to communicate with anyone there.

I suggest we all gather and put some efforts in getting information from ACT about how many places have been filled and how many remaining.

This way we will know if we can get an invite.
I totally agree. According to many agents, the majority people submit the application are 60-65 points but they have already issue 1800 applications who are as high as 145 points. Looking at the previous invitation around, the majority applicants with matrix points invited are around 100 even though 1800 applicants had already invited. This is totally fake.

So is there any chance they will continue this matrix program after july

yes there is a strong possibility the matrix will be repeated in July. BUT there is talk that they will be removing the 190 visa and replacing it with 491

But the new visa is coming only in november
So till November they will continue i think
And the act government just introduced the matrix system? So will they change it in a suden
Do the new visa will replace 190?

cant apply anything that requires security clearance according to my agent
hello @CampDavid .. , I would like to ask, for relevant job ads, do they have to be of the same title for the nominated occupation? I just received a pre invite and I am having difficulties for the job ads part. Mostly the ones that are closely related require security clearance. May I ask for some tips regarding this part?

Hi Tess, I just went back to seek and LinkedIn. And pdf-ed job in my relates field that was not government related. There are very few non government related jobs, and I picked a few that technically I’m over qualified for. But it fits the skill bracket I’m nominated in. I hope that helps.

Hello @CampDavid thank you so much for your response. So it is not necessary that I will look for the same designation,as in my case Engineering Technologist? , which is close to none really. I saw a techinician post, that is not government related, as well as a position that is not with an engineering designation but these are quite related to my job description. Can I also include them? Also, how many pages you submitted for job ads parts including the employment statement? I presume if 2 pages for each post including the employment statement so all in all 10 pages if I submit 5 job ads? Sorry for several questions...I am a little bit worried with the job ads part since it could also be the reason for their rejection if criterias are not met.

No. The jobs must be in the same skill you are applying. In your case it would be engineering technologist. It cannot be a technician job. I made sure the jobs I searched for clearly had public relations (the skill I’m applying through) in the job designation. That way it is clear that it is applicable to the skill.

Each job, I wrote about 3/4 of a page. Why I should be considered and I linked it clearly to my experience in my resume.

I hope it helps

hows your job ads going so far? Im quite in a panic mode as there is no Interior Design open in Canberra. only 1.
I managed to find enough job ads for my skill that is non government. The day we got asked to submit matrix documentation, i started pulling together the ads, and writing up the justification.

If you have got your nomination based on your current EOI, why would we want to change it anyway?

Hi all can anyone advise me, do we need to submit proof of funds or any docs to substantiate the amount you have declared or submitted during the state nomination?

Hi @CampDavid u already lodged your visa right? Did you provide them proof of funds?

Thank you
Hi there was no request to show proof during the ACT portion. Don’t know about the federal side. We are currently in the process
