This can be because of Christmas as well, Dec/Jan is a high time for the employees to take extended vacations.

True that. But its on the EOI page when its on the stage of submission, also I haven't received a single email from DIBP on my account regarding any changes I recently made to my EOI. Which I believe are system generated. Hence I think there's some system failure, as we recently witnessed with few of the pro rata basis occupations not getting invites in last rounds.

@MysticRiver, I have a scenario for which I would like to know your opinion.

Lets just say if I submit a new EOI for the next round with 70 points increasing 7 each in IELTS. Which I havent secured yet. (And I know its not right to do that) But after getting an invite, I obviously need to prove those points by providing my test results, so I will have 60 days before I could actually score 7 each in IELTS and click the apply button right?

Nope, the rule says your point will be calculated based on the day you receive your invitation. So, any pre-claim of points is not acceptable.

The above rule is logically fair as well, because if you do so, that'd mean some one more eligible (higher in the rank) was deprived of an invitation due to your false claim :).

But DIBP doesn't know if I pre-claimed or not right?

Another question arises here, what happens to such invites which are wrongly claimed but not accepted, or people do not accept their invites for some other reasons. Do they add back to quota?

Why wouldn't they know? Let say you get your invitation on 1st March and your IELTS TRF is dated 20th March, which would clearly indicate you pre-claimed.

Nothing happens. An EOI can receive maximum 2 invitations. After first invitation expires, EOI is added back to the pool. But after 2 unaccepted invitations, the EOI is removed from the system. But of course, you can then open a new EOI.

I actually meant to ask about the "Invitations" not EOI. What happens to the invitations? Are they added back to invites?

Oh, yup. Logically they should, also it seems that way from the occupation ceiling history (sometimes, total invitation count reduces for some skills).
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
