Can I submit more than one EOI?

In short, yes. There is not limit to the number of Expression of Interests (EOIs) you can submit in SkillSelect.

You must be able to provide supporting evidence for each claim that you made in your EOI in order to achieve the number of points that you have claimed.

An EOI does not guarantee an invitation to apply for a General Skilled Migration visa. Given this, depending on the number of points you are eligible for, you may wish to consider an EOI for multiple visa types, if your occupation is on the appropriate list. This can be done on the one EOI however and does not require multiple EOIs.

If you receive an invitation and do not accept it, you risk not receiving another invitation in the future.

There are circumstances where you may wish to submit multiple EOIs. These include:

  • Your circumstances have changed eg you had a birthday and gained/lost points
  • Your 189 EOI has been in the system for quite a while and you change your mind and wish to also try your luck at one of the other subclasses.
  • You are happy to move to any state or territory that will invite you but you submit multiple EOIs as some state/territories give preference to those who indicate interest in their state/territory specifically than those who select “any” state/territory.
  • You have multiple positive skills assessments and are happy to try your hand at either occupation.
