If you receive an invitation, you will have 60 days to lodge your online visa application. If you have not lodged an online visa application within this time you will have to wait to receive another invitation. If you receive two invitations to apply for a visa for the same EOI and you do not lodge a visa application, your expression of interest will be removed from SkillSelect. If you still want to apply for a visa, you will need to submit a new Expression of Interest.
You can be in or outside Australia when you lodge your visa application.
Your application is likely to require extensive supporting documentation, as listed in the document checklist of the visa you apply for. Start compiling these documents early in the process, even before you submit your expression of interest.
