Default ==> 189 EOI Invitations for June 2017 <==

This thread is for people who have already lodged an EOI for 189 visa and expect to be invited in June 2017.

If you are waiting for state sponsorship, there are several other threads that will help you. Invitation rounds do not apply to state-sponsored visas.

Please make a note on these:

PROVIDE INFORMATION: Either create a signature with your EOI date, occupation and points, or make sure to include this information in your post. There are usually numerous follow-up posts asking these questions when posters don't already provide this information.

READ THE THREAD: If you wonder when the next invitation round will be, chances are 20 people have already asked this question earlier in the thread. You don't need to be the 21st.

STAY ON TOPIC: There are other threads to help you complete your EOI, lodge your application after you've been invited, figure out which occupation you may want to nominate, etc. This is not the thread for those questions. Avoid cluttering it up with non-relevant questions.


Please remember that there are a LOT of occupation codes, so including these details in your post or in your signature will help people give you appropriate answers. Useful details include:

1. Your occupation code # and Occupation Name
2. Your EOI date of effect
3. Your total points
4. Onshore/offshore

Pro-rata occupations(mentioned below) have reached invite ceiling limit and it seems they will not be invited in June round

-Accountants
-Auditors, Company Secretaries and Corporate Treasurers
-Electronics Engineers
-Industrial, Mechanical and Production Engineers
-Other Engineering Professionals
-ICT Business and System Analysts
-Software and Applications Programmers
-Computer Network Professionals.



Some useful links
:

189 visa criteria: Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)

SkillSelect page for invitation round dates and results, and occupation ceilings: SkillSelect

189 Invitation trend for pro-rata occupations: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=2092529074

189 invite - How to Proceed

Tentative round dates could be 7th & 21st June - but it will be confirmed by Skillselect as we move ahead

Good luck everyone!

189 invite - How to Proceed

As soon as we get invite the anxiousness changes to inquisitiveness on how to proceed further,

Explaining here with some steps, experts can add more


PRE-INVITE

if you have submitted EOI and are very sure of receiving it in a week or a month then Initiate PCC action for countries which take some time to process. For Eg FBI PCC, as my friends say it takes around 10-12 weeks, so it is best to initiate the process at least a month before the date you are sure of getting an invite.

INTERIM STAGE

Between EOI submission and invite, think of how you are going to pay the visa fees, there are several ways to pay which is listed on How to Pay

However the best one I found with respect to Indian applicants is the TRAVEL CARD OR FOREX CARD - Single currency or multi currency, anyone will do

there are several banks which offer travel cards - ICICI, AXIS, HDFC, besides this some travel agents like cox and kings offer travel card. do some research over conversion rate(AUD TO INR) before buying a travel card and loading Australian $ into it. strike a deal at the optimum time. Having a bank account with these banks could help in getting travel card, as per my experience ICICI is the one which issues travel card easily without much drama.

POST INVITE

The status in skillselect will change to INVITED and a new button APPLY VISA will appear in the skill select page, clicking on that button will take you to immiaccount page where you need to create an account. Fill the 17 page form, most of data inside that is retrieved from EOI


after receiving invite you have 60 days to submit visa application.

Submitting a visa application - it means creating an immiaccount, filling details of self and dependents in immiaccount and paying visa fees for self and dependents

Migrating Dependents - mention spouse, defacto partner and child here, it is economical and time saving to add spouse and children within your PR application instead of taking spouse visa or child visa for them at a later stage.

adding parents as migrating dependents is not possible after Nov 19, 2016 since the definition of MEMBER OF FAMILY UNIT has changed since that date.

see link for details https://www.border.gov.au/Migrationa...mily-unit.aspx

visa fees
is 3600 $- primary applicant, 1800$- dependent applicant over 18 year, 900$- dependent applicants under 18 years age. along with this there will be some service tax charged while payment of visa fees,

The visa fees is going to change from 1st July 2017 https://www.border.gov.au/Reportsand...et-2017-18.pdf



RELEVANT DOCUMENTS

We need to submit all documents which are required to prove the claims made in EOI, a general list of documents is mentioned below, some specific documents may be required in special cases

Document Naming Tips When naming your files to be attached to an online application only use numbers 09 and letters AZ (upper and lower case), dashes '' and underscores '_'. You must avoid using spaces ' ', periods '.', ampersand '&', hash '#', star '*', exclamation marks '!', quotations '' "" and any other character that is not a letter, a number, a dash or an underscore.

Document Size - less than 5 MB
Number of Documents - 60 per applicant i.e. 60 for you, 60 for spouse, 60 for child

More details on Attach documents to an online application

Primary Applicant

1. Passport - first and last page color scan
2. English Test Report - In case of PTE, the report card need to be sent to DIBP via pearson account
3. Birth Certificate - some applicants(mostly Indian) give matriculation certificate as proof of DOB
4. Qualifying Degree - Marksheets, Transcript & Degree certificate
5. Roles and responsibilities Letter - for all companies for which you are claiming experience points, if the rnr letter is from HR then it is the best case
11 Salary Slip - for all companies for which you are claiming experience points, one per quarter or six months is sufficient in addition
12 Skill assessment letter from competent Australian authority
13 Tax documents - for indian employment give ITR V or FORM 16 or FORM 26AS
14 Photo - passport size
15 Marriage Certificate(if married)
16 PCC - from all countries where you have stayed more than 12 months in past 10 years
17 Form 80 & 1221
18 Medical fee payment receipt - not mandatory

Additional Applicant over 18

1 Passport - first and last page color scan
2 Birth Certificate
4 Education documents
5 6 Proof of functional english - letter from college
7 PCC - from all countries where this person have stayed more than 12 months in past 10 years
8 Form 80 & 1221
9 Photo - passport size
10 Medical fee payment receipt - not mandatory

In case of de-facto relation provide evidence of relationship for at least past 12 months since day of invitation. Evidence can be joint bank account statements, billing accounts in joint names, and other evidence of cohabitation like rent/lease agreement in joint name

Additional Applicant under 18
1 Passport - first and last page color scan
2 Birth Certificate
3 Medical fee payment receipt - not mandatory
4 Photo - passport size

if you are claiming points for partner skills then below mentioned needs to be provided in addition to what is mentioned above

1. Skill assessment letter of partner
2. Proof of Competent English - IELTS 6 or equivalent
3. Employment documents - not mandatory, but sometimes case officer can ask for this, if you have it then front load

Documents for NOT RELEVANT Experience - In principle it is not required to provide any document for which we havent claimed any points, however in my personal opinion if there is some employment which is not relevant then mention it in form 80 and provide some basic document for this like a joining letter, discharge letter. I will like to say it once more that it is not mandatory

PCC - Police clearance certificate

Indian PCC - if you are in India, you need to create an account on PSK(passport seva kendra) website Passport Seva Home | Indian Passport | Passport | Passport Seva Project and apply for PCC from there,

if current address is different from passport address then you need to have a proof for current address, the list of documents are mentioned on PSK document advisor, however a photo passbook in a nationalised bank serves the best address proof.

if you are outside India, then you need to do it through Indian Embassy/High Commission in that country, alternatively there are some agencies like VFS global who help in getting pcc, their service is paid as far as i know

USA PCC - this thread is a good guide for USA PCC USA Police clearance certificate

Singapore PCC or COC - to be applied as Certificate of clearance on E-Services, some discussion on SG PCC on Singapore Police clearance certificate

on the similar lines, PCC from various countries can be done either online or through their embassy in your country

Medicals AFTER Visa Fee Payment- Generate HAP ID letter from immiaccount

VIEW HEALTH ASSESSMENT - ORGANIZE HEALTH EXAMINATION - PRINT REFERRAL LETTER -- this referral letter has the HAP ID for you, in similar way generate HAP ID letter for all the applicants within your visa application.

contact the nearest panel physician and book an appointment for medicals, many offer online booking for visa health check, check their websites once. visit the panel physician on day of appointment with passport, HAP ID letter and one photograph, gt through with medicals

tests done for visa health check --- blood test, urine test, chest X ray, general examination by Doctor, they do some additional test in case of any adverse findings

list of panel physician authorised by DIBP = https://www.border.gov.au/Lega/Lega/...nel-physicians



continued........

.........

Medicals BEFORE Visa Fee Payment Some applicants prefer to do medicals before visa lodge, I think they are skeptical about health check and do it prior to visa lodge, however many persons i know have done it after visa lodge. At the end it is applicant's choice when to do medicals - before or after

My health declarations MY HEALTH DECLARATIONS is the pathway to do medicals before visa lodge, In this we create an immiaccount, fill details of applicants who will apply visa in future, generate HAP ID for them and get through with visa health check as mentioned above. while lodging visa application we can use teh same immiaccount or create a new one and enter these HAP IDs and the health check data is synced accordingly.

DO NOT WAIT FOR CASE OFFICER TO ASK FOR PCC/MEDICALS, Initiate action by yourself at right time

One significant thing regarding IED or Must Enter Australia Before Date

IED is generally one year from the date of medicals or pcc whichever is earlier

Eg. PA did medicals on 01.03.2017, spouse did on 10.03.2017 and child did on 15.04.2017,

PCC date(considering applicants have lived in India, USA & Singapore)- USA 25.02.17, India - 12.03.2017, SG - 18.03.2017

the IED calculation will be done on earliest of all these i.e 25.02.2017, the iED will probably be 24.02.2017.

Hence applicant must gauge the situation and do pcc/medicals to get good time between visa grant and IED, else travel will have to be arranged in a hurry and flight tickets could cost a fortune.


After all this, forget that you lodged a visa application and give priority to things which were overlooked for filing visa application...

GOOD LUCK

Hi all,

I plan to apply for visa 189 and probably claim 5 points for partner skill.

At website, one of the requirements is: (partner) "had nominated an occupation on the same list of eligible skilled occupations as your nominated occupation".

Could anyone explain for me what the word " the same list" mean? I am under Software Engineer occupation (on MTLSSL list) and my partner's is Project Administrator (on Combine List). Can I get 5 points for partner skills assuming that assessment authority gives positive results for my partner?

Thank you very much.
