The backlog section on Anzscosearch indicates the number of EOIs (Expressions of Interest) & invitations issued for skilled visas in SkillSelect. This information will give you an overview of your chances to obtain an invitation with your occupation under the Skilled Independent or State & Territory Nominated visa programs.
The type of visas covered include:
- Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189)
- Skilled Nominated Visa (Subclass 190)
- Skilled Work Regional Visa (Subclass 491) (State/Territory Nominated)
- Skilled Work Regional Visa (Subclass 491) (Family Sponsored)
You can access the Skillselect data under the ‘Backlog’ tab when searching by your ANZSCO code:
