A recent FOI (Freedom of Information) request revealed the Expression of Interest numbers for the Global Talent Independent program for 2020-21 from the launch of the program (4 November 2020) till 4 August 2020.
There have been 7444 Expression of Interests received with only 2513 invitations so far and 1105 refusals. As time goes on, the number of refusals will become way higher. This goes to show how the Expression of Interest stage is crucial for the visa program with only 1 out of 3 applicants invited for the visa.
