First of all, what a great thread for us 189 visa hopefuls - if we continue to use this, we will soon learn how much of the backlog is consumed each month.
I think the August round will largely be taken up by 65+ pointers, although I would hope it will start to make a dent into the 60 pointer backlog from March. if it doesn't, then certainly by March we will see 60 pointers getting an invite each month. We just have to accept there is a backlog to chew through.!!
Can I ask some advice regarding 190 EOI's. I know if you apply to Western Australia, you are required to provide an offer of employment for a minimum of 1 year. Is this the same with all other states ??
Fingers crossed, the 60 point invitations begin to roll in.... ;-)
