Can I extend my invitation validity?

There is no functionality in SkillSelect to extend the validity period of an invitation to apply for a visa.  It is recommended that you lodge your visa application early in the 60 day validity period.

If your invitation has expired you will need to:

* Wait for another invitation round for Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) or Skilled Regional (provisional) visa (subclass 489)

* Contact your nominating authority and discuss a second nomination for Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190), State or Territory Nominated (provisional) visa (subclass 489), Business Innovation and Investment visa (subclass 188) or Business Talent (subclass 132)
