Dear Department of Home Affairs,

Wanted to know about the steps taken by DHA in curbing the fake EOI's submitted in the Skillselect System. the current EOI system has a major defect in which allow applicant to submit an EOI without any limit, in which means it will be easy to fake any information that the applicant current has and to claim an EOI with a high skills points.This defect will lead to a catastrophic consequence that there will be no genuine applicant can be invited.

Can we bring some validation like Passport Number or reduce the time for responding to invitation to 30 days or giving them only 1 chance. So that really deserved candidates would get the opportunity.

Yours faithfully,

Johnpaul Naveen
