SkillSelect invitation process and generating cut-offs
The highest ranked clients or those that have scored the highest points are sent an invitation to apply to apply towards the relevant visa. For those candidates that have scored equal points scores, the particular time at which they have reached on the required threshold of points score for that particular subclass (which is also referred as the date of effect) finally determines their order of invitation getting issued. Expression of Interest with earlier dates of effect are issued invitations before later dates.
