- Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled — a minimum score of 85.
The previous draw was held on February 22. In the new drawing, the passing scores for international graduates increased by 2 points, for skilled workers decreased by 1 point, and for entry-level and semi-skilled workers remained unchanged.
Another 45 people received invitations in a target draw for certain occupations. These candidates needed to score 60 points:
