My lawyer has suggested removing 189 and 190 from my EOI and focusing on 489 as it may slightly improve my chances.
I want to check if my occupation is available for NSW State Sponsorship and if I am eligible to apply. Any idea how I can do that ?
Sorry to bring the bad news but with 65 you have like zero chances as the current bar is currently around 80-85 with last few rounds at 85. So even if this goes down there is no way you get a chance at 65 before your EOI expires.
No harm in keeping 190 EOI active if it's eligible occupation. Assuming you have separate EOI.
489 for state might give you some advantage if that's on the list and state invites you. Though keep in mind that people with 85 or 90 are also in race for 489 visa. Good luck.
If you can improve some points then I would suggest doing that. Otherwise you would have better chance at 491/494 of you occupation gets nominated for those new visas.
