How long will my Skilled Migrant Category Expression of Interest remain in the pool after it is submitted?

If your Skilled Migrant Category Expression of Interest (EOI) is not selected, it will remain in the pool for six months. 

If, after the six month period, your EOI has not been selected from the pool, it will be lapsed. You will receive notification that this has happened. 

You are able to submit another EOI after your previous one has lapsed, but you will need to create a new online account for this purpose.

There is no refund available for EOIs which have been lapsed or declined.

If we have not selected any EOIs over the six month period, all EOIs will remain in the pool until we make the next selection.

Can I get a refund for my residence application or expression of interest fee?
