According to the most recent update, Other Engineering Professionals (2339) and Computer Network Professionals (2631) have reached their ceiling for the current fiscal year, thus impacting the following occupations:

This means applicants who have not received invitation for the above occupations will not receive in by 30 June and therefore will have to wait until 1 July the soonest regardless of the score for the points test. This is because the quota for Engineers has not been released as for Accountants and IT this fiscal year and the overseas applicants for Engineers have been booming.

In addition, a new invitation round will occur 29 March with 2000 invitations for Subclass 189 and 200 for Subclass 489.
