    ACT Expression Of Interest

    It is necessary to submit a valid Expression on Interest (EOI) through SkillSelect. SkillSelect is an online application system that is managed by the DHA. To apply for the ACT nomination candidates must need to meet the Department of Home Affairs visa criteria. Moreover, candidates need to meet the DHA’s criteria regularly even if candidates received invitations from the ACT.

    Based on the SkillSelect EOI the ACT confirms the nomination approval and on this basis, the DHA will issue the Invitation To Apply for the skilled migration visa. ACT cannot confirm nominations if candidates do not meet the DHA’s criteria or the SkillSelect EOI is expired.
