Default What is PR, EOI, 189,190, MLTSSL? What is the 1st thing I should do ?

I get a lot of questions regarding PR, EOI, Skills Assessment and I also had a lot of questions when I first started my PR Process. These are some of the things I learned. All are my personal opinions so if it is wrong or anything, do let me know.

What is PR ?

PR=Permanent Residency

So, what is the 1st thing I should do ?

Try find out which occupation closely matches your occupation and get an assessment from your relevant Assessing Authority. You can find it next to your occupation in the MLTSSL list.

https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/...upations-lists

What is MLTSSL, 189, 190, 489 or State Nomination ?

189 Visa: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...ndependent-189

190 Visa: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...-nominated-190

489: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...rovisional-489

189 and 190 basically has the same points system with the only difference between 5 extra points from state. Same for 189 with 489 which awards 10 extra points.

State Nomination:

How do I apply one ?

Read about the requirements of each state: https://www.australia.gov.au/informa...igration-sites

NSW 190: What’s so special about it?

Only NSW state doesn’t have any requirements like you need to apply to them asking for approval or such. They also don’t have any requirements like you studied in that particular state, or certain years of work experience. If you are fine for 189, you are fine for 190 most likely. Check to see if your occupation is in NSW list. They also sends the most invite among all the states. This information is for 2016-17 only. Skilled nominated migration (190) - Live & Work in New South Wales

Where and when does new SOL is released ?

The Department of Education and Training releases new SOL every year usually between mid May to early June. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...ccupation-list
Points:

Do I have enough points ?

You need 65 points for a 189 invite if not pro rata and 60 for 190, however that is always not enough to be invited to apply. Click on Points test section here : https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...nts-calculator

How long do I have to wait for an invite ?

If your occupation is not pro rata, then you get invited in the next invitation round once you reach 60 points for 189 and submit EOI. Invitation round happens every 14 days on Wednesday at 12:00 am Sydney time. So, max number of days you need to wait to get invited is 14 days if your occupation is not pro rata.

What is Pro Rata, Cut-off points, Cut-off date and Occupation Ceilings ?

Pro Rata Pro rata would mean divided/proportion - say if 1200 seats are available for a particular ANZSCO code it is divided into 12 month 2 rounds per month hence under pro rata it would mean 120 applicants would get their ITA per month and 60 per round

Cut-off Points: The minimum points you require to get invite. If there are too many people, then it goes higher.

Cut-off Date is the date before which if one applied (DOE) would get the invite if they have the cut-off points.

Occupation Ceilings is the maximum number of occupation group that can be invited each year in 189 visa. Check in here : https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visa...ation-ceilings
190 Visa is not under Occupation Ceilings. But NSW state usually sends a total of 4000 invites (for 2016-17). Other states has their own quota.

PTE-A or IELTS ?

Go for PTE-A if you are aiming for 79+ or 8+ IELTS Level. If you are aiming for 65+ or 7+ IELTS level, then there’s not much difference.

PTE is usually for those who are strong at Reading and Listening but can’t get the required mark in Speaking and Writing due to biased human marking in IELTS. If you are good at Speaking and Writing but not in Reading and Listening, then you may find PTE-A more difficult.

Default EOI Expression of Interest

What is the 2nd thing I should do ?

Submit an EOI.

What is EOI ? Is EOI a visa application ?

EOI = Expression of Interest. No EOI is not a visa application, it is like creating a hotmail or gmail account. Don't stress too much on it. EOI is valid for two years, after that you need to submit again.

Can I apply for any visa while my EOI is submitted ?

EOI is basically like you submitting a CV/Resume to a company so they can select you. DIBP does the same and select you based on your points score and hence it is not related to any visa or such. You are free to apply to any visa, immigrate to another country while your EOI is submitted.

Can I select more than one Visa type in EOI ?

Yes, you can select 189, 190, 489, etc in one EOI.

Can I submit more than one EOI ?

You are allowed to submit multiple EOI based on different occupation that's for sure.
https://archive.homeaffairs.gov.au/l...s-can-i-submit

Quote:
How many Expressions of Interest can I submit?

There is no limitation on how many Expressions of Interest you can submit in SkillSelect. However, you must be able to provide evidence on all the claims you have made to achieve your points score.
Can I get assessed twice for two occupation and submit two different EOI ?

Yes. If you have 3,4,5 or more occupation assessed, then submit one for each.

If I am claiming 5 Spouse points, can my wife also submit her own EOI ?

Yes, and if possible you should do it. This gives you twice the opportunity to get invite. You can submit one EOI taking 5 points from your spouse and your spouse can submit another EOI taking 5 points from you.

What is Date of Effect (DOE) and Date of Submission ?

DOE is when your points last changed. Date of Submission is when you updated your EOI but it didn't changed any points.

Date of Effect (DOE) matters or Date of Submission matters ? Update EOI or no ?

DOE matters when DIBP does invitation rounds, Date of Submission doesn't. So, when you update EOI without changing points, your Date of Submission will change but your DOE will remain same and hence will have no effect on your queue position in DIBP invitation round. So, if you move to a new country, login to your EOI and change your country of residence. Or if something else changes, you are required by DIBP to update your EOI asap. DIBP says :

Quote:
Will update their EOI details immediately as they become aware of a change in circumstances or if there is any change relating to information they have provided in this EOI
Expression of Interest

How to start EOI

SkillSelect

There, click Submit an EOI or Login to SkillSelect whichever applies to you.

If you select Passport as your preferred document type, then enter your Passport number as your identification document number. It is basically your security question in case you forget your password.

Can I enter all my details and submit EOI later ?

Yes, it is a very good way of doing it as then once you get your Assessment Letter and/or PTE/IELTS results, you can just login and submit EOI, thus saving time and having DOE earlier. Every second counts. There were times when 2335 or 2211 only moved few minutes in an invitation rounds. Don't click submit till you have your Assessment Letter or PTE/IELTS results or everything you need to submit your EOI !!!

Can I submit EOI before I get my Assessment Letter or PTE/IELTS results ?

No. If you are thinking to submit EOI to have earlier DOE before getting your Assessment Letter or PTE/IELTS results, your visa might or most likely will be cancelled. Case Officer (CO), will check all details against the DOE and if he sees DOE earlier than date on Assessment Letter and/or date of PTE/IELTS results, then it will most likely be denied.

Are there any family members the client would like to include in a future application?

You can only add your husband/wife/de facto partner, your child/step-child or your partner’s child/step-child only. You can no longer add your mom and dad. They will need a different separate visa now. Select yes, if they are immigrating with you in your PR visa. More about it here : Including family members in your application

Would the client be accompanied by the client's partner in a future application?

Yes, if your spouse or de facto partner is joining with you in your PR visa.

English Languagee:

Test Reference Number.

PTE-A: It is your Registration ID which can also be seen written vertically on the right hand side of your picture in the Test Taker Score Report. Do not enter your Test Taker ID.
IELTS: It is your Test Report Form Number

Date of Test: It is the date you took the test not the date your test result or score was published.

Education History:

Has the client completed, or is currently enrolled in any studies at secondary level and above?

Only enter your Diploma, Bachelor, Masters or above. No need for your high school certificate or result even though they are secondary. You need to enter your high school certificate when you lodge your visa in ImmiAccount.

I can't enter Course name or Institution name as it only allows 40 characters.

Shorten it, it is fine. But make sure you enter the whole name when lodging visa in ImmiAccount. You can use shortened version, like BEng ,Tech, Engg, Com, Uni, Sci, BEng, BSc, BCom etc.
e.g. Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Aerospace and Space Technology can be written as BSc in Engg in Aerospace & Space Tech or Bachelor of Science in Engg in Aero & Space Tech or BSc in Engg in Aerospace and Space Technology or any version you like or feel relevant to your degree.

Should I choose Bachelor Degree in Science, Business or Technology ?

If it feels relevant to your degree then yes. Almost all Engineering, IT, Accounting, Auditors, Actuaries, Mathematicians, and others fall into this category.

I don't know the exact day I started uni or finished.

You can assume day if you don't know the exact dates. So, you can enter starting date of uni as 1st March 2012 if you know you started uni in March 2012. If you don't know your end date, then enter the day of your graduation or day on your transcript whichever makes more sense - as some people might receive their certificate 2-3 years later and it may show date 2-3 years later and hence use transcript date.

Australian Study Requirement : Does the client meet the Australian study requirements for the Skilled Migration points test?

Enter if it applies to you. It's quite detailed so you need to read and find out. Usually if you haven't studied in Australia or graduated from an Australian university, then the answer is No.

Credentialed Community Language

Usually if you have done NAATI or some accredited college course that awards you 5 points. Find it out yourselves.

Skills Assessment:

Nominated Occupation: Enter the code or occupation number you received in your assessment letter and it will automatically find your nominated occupation.

Only for Engineering Australia assessment: What is my Reference number/receipt number?

It is your EA ID or Engineering Australia ID. Don't enter your Application ID or MSA ID.

Employment:

Provide details of the client's employment history for the last 10 years.

Enter all employment you have done in the last 10 years as you would enter in your Form 80. This will help keep consistency across applications. That's what I do, some may tell you otherwise. Again assume dates if you don't know the exact dates.

Start date can start at 1st of every month and end date can usually be 28/30/31 of every month.

I got Work Experience Assessed but my Assessing Authority only considered certain years.

Split the employment in 2 parts. So, for example, if you worked from March 2010 to Oct 2016 and your Assessing Authority considered March 2012 to Oct 2016 relevant, then you do this.

March 2010 - Feb 2012: Related Employment: NO
March 2012 - Oct 2016: Related Employment: YES


I got assessed but I am still in my current assessed job. What should be the end date ?

Leave the Date to or End Date blank. EOI will automatically keep on calculating your work exp and if you reach a certain year, it will automatically award you points and you won't have to do anything.

Professional Year : Has the client completed a gazetted professional year in Australia in the last 48 months?

It only applies to you if you have done a Professional Year course in Australia in either 485 or 476 visa after graduation. It is not work experience.

Is my Degree related to my occupation or at a recognised standard and can I be awarded points for it ?

Usually it is written on your Assessment Letter. It should show if your AQF Level is either Bachelor Degree : 15 points or Diploma : 10 points.

EOI automatically changed my points. Does my DOE changes ?

Yes. EOI can change points if it finds you have reached a certain age, or your work experience has reached a certain years. You can both gain or lose points.

The age is given as
25–32 years : 30 points
33–39 years: 25 points
So, when do I lose points ? When I am 32 or 33 ?


You have 30 points till you are 32 years and 364 days. Once you are 32 years and 365 days or 33 years, you lose 5 points.

Default Getting Invited

Now ? Wait to get invited:

What happens to my SkillSelect account when I get an invite ?

It freezes and shows you an option to lodge visa through ImmiAccount. During that time you can't receive any more invite. The invite expires in 60 days. If you allow two of your invite to expire, your EOI is cancelled.

What happens when NSW state sends me an invite ?

I donít know about other state, but usually NSW sends you an email asking if you would like to accept their 190 nomination. You have 14 days to accept it. You need to pay AUD 300 and upload some relevant documents and then they will send SkillSelect that they want to nominate you. Then your SkillSelect gets frozen with 190 invite. Beware, that link only works a certain number of times so try upload or complete your applications at one go.

What happens if I don't respond to their email and don't apply for 190 invitation ?

Then NSW will not invite you for that EOI again.

What happens if I am eligible for 189 invite but I applied asking for 190 already ?

Well then if you receive 189 before NSW approves your 190, you get 189 invite. You will lose your AUD 300 and don't get 190.

I am expecting invite soon. Should I get my PCC and/or do Medical before invite or after ?

PCC and Medical is usually valid for a year. I donít think you will need 1 year to get your grant and I hope you donít. Some people says itís better to do it later as it affects your IED Ė Initial Entry Date. But I like having all my documents ready before I receive invite so I can lodge my PR application the day I receive invite. This is called Complete Application:

https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/...n-applications

Quote:
Achieving a faster visa decision

Most 'complete' applications are finalised within three months of lodgement. Incomplete applications are less likely to be finalised within three months of lodgement because additional documentation might be required before the application can be finalised.

A 'complete application' has health examinations undertaken and all required documentation uploaded to ImmiAccount before the application is allocated for assessment.
Hereís how it works.

If CO finds everything when he/she opens your application, he/she does some verification and give you a grant.
If he/she doesnít, then he/she asks you to upload a new document or do Medical which can cause you to delay your application as much as 3 months to may be more every time CO asks something. Your target will be to avoid CO contact if you can by submitting Complete Application.

People with Complete Application has received their grant as early as in 12 days after lodging visa, also known as Direct Grant. Your PR grant time may depend on various factors besides Complete Application, such as high risk countries, wife and kids processing, work verification and so on.

When should I do Medical ? How to do it ?

Some people do it before invite, some after invite. I advise you to do it on the day you get invite. So, get Referral Letter with HAP ID ready before your invite by doing My Health Declarations. Then schedule your Medical the day you get invite and lodge your Visa that day. Hereís how:

For Medical, start a new application in ImmiAccount https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login called : My Health Declarations. There answer a bunch of questions regarding your health and then in the end select full medical and get/generate the Referral Letter from there. The Referral Letter will also contain your HAP ID, which you can then use when you lodge your PR Visa and can mention you have already done your medical by entering the HAP ID.

A PR medical usually have:

501 Medical Examination
502 Chest X-ray Examination
707 HIV test

The medical is valid for one year.

And yes take the referral letter and do your medical in your nearest eMedical Centre. https://www.border.gov.au/Busi/Pane/Pane-1

Choose the one that has eMedical logo/sign.

They will upload all your medical online once it's done. You wonít have to worry about anything after that.

What is PCC ?

PCC = Police Clearance Certificate. Please read: Character and police certificate requirements

What about PCC ?

PCC is valid for a year, so try collect them before you expect an invite so you have them just before your invitation date. FBI PCC takes 3.5-4 months, so apply early for that.
Our offices

Do I need PCC for my kids ?

PCC for under 16 is not required.

Any form I should fill to be prepared ?

Yes, Form 80 https://www.border.gov.au/Forms/Documents/80.pdf and Form 1221 https://www.border.gov.au/FormsAndDo...ments/1221.pdf.

I am ready to lodge, so now what ?

Well go to this thread, it has a lot of info to help you from here on : http://www.expatforum.com/expats/aus...w-proceed.html

Ok, can I do all this on my own or do I need to go to an agent ?

Well it depends on you, how much you are interested in your PR. I believe you should be able to do it all by yourself. I mean you have the education and skills to apply, so I see no reason why you won't be able to do it by yourself since so many people here does it. This forum will help you if you have problems.

It may be a great start to your PR journey by yourself doing everything. I mean once you go to Aus, you will need to know how to apply TFN, Medicare, ABN, etc or apply for a job. Do you need an agent for all those things too ?

Any advice ?

Well try read and research as much as you can, this way you won't have to ask silly questions which are already there in expatforum. Use the search option or google it !

Good luck !!!

this is so useful...thanks zabak for taking out time to pen this important information.

I have a doubt though, i have different eoi's submitted for 189 and 190, and recently i applied for NSW 190 which is yet to be approved.

If i get a 189 invite, will my NSW 190 be automatically cancelled or i can choose among both.

Shorten it, it is fine. But make sure you enter the whole name when lodging visa in ImmiAccount. You can use shortened version, like BEng ,Tech, Engg, Com, Uni, Sci, BEng, BSc, BCom etc.
e.g. Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Aerospace and Space Technology can be written as BSc in Engg in Aerospace & Space Tech or Bachelor of Science in Engg in Aero & Space Tech or BSc in Engg in Aerospace and Space Technology or any version you like or feel relevant to your degree.

Should I choose Bachelor Degree in Science, Business or Technology ?

If it feels relevant to your degree then yes. Almost all Engineering, IT, Accounting, Auditors, Actuaries, Mathematicians, and others fall into this category.

I don't know the exact day I started uni or finished.

You can assume day if you don't know the exact dates. So, you can enter starting date of uni as 1st March 2012 if you know you started uni in March 2012. If you don't know your end date, then enter the day of your graduation or day on your transcript whichever makes more sense - as some people might receive their certificate 2-3 years later and it may show date 2-3 years later and hence use transcript date.

Australian Study Requirement : Does the client meet the Australian study requirements for the Skilled Migration points test?

Enter if it applies to you. It's quite detailed so you need to read and find out. Usually if you haven't studied in Australia or graduated from an Australian university, then the answer is No.

Credentialed Community Language

Usually if you have done NAATI or some accredited college course that awards you 5 points. Find it out yourselves.

Skills Assessment:

Nominated Occupation: Enter the code or occupation number you received in your assessment letter and it will automatically find your nominated occupation.

Only for Engineering Australia assessment: What is my Reference number/receipt number?

It is your EA ID or Engineering Australia ID. Don't enter your Application ID or MSA ID.

Employment:

Provide details of the client's employment history for the last 10 years.

Enter all employment you have done in the last 10 years as you would enter in your Form 80. This will help keep consistency across applications. That's what I do, some may tell you otherwise. Again assume dates if you don't know the exact dates.

Start date can start at 1st of every month and end date can usually be 28/30/31 of every month.

I got Work Experience Assessed but my Assessing Authority only considered certain years.

Split the employment in 2 parts. So, for example, if you worked from March 2010 to Oct 2016 and your Assessing Authority considered March 2012 to Oct 2016 relevant, then you do this.

March 2010 - Feb 2012: Related Employment: NO
March 2012 - Oct 2016: Related Employment: YES


I got assessed but I am still in my current assessed job. What should be the end date ?

Leave the Date to or End Date blank. EOI will automatically keep on calculating your work exp and if you reach a certain year, it will automatically award you points and you won't have to do anything.

Professional Year : Has the client completed a gazetted professional year in Australia in the last 48 months?

It only applies to you if you have done a Professional Year course in Australia in either 485 or 476 visa after graduation. It is not work experience.

Is my Degree related to my occupation or at a recognised standard and can I be awarded points for it ?

Usually it is written on your Assessment Letter. It should show if your AQF Level is either Bachelor Degree : 15 points or Diploma : 10 points.

EOI automatically changed my points. Does my DOE changes ?

Yes. EOI can change points if it finds you have reached a certain age, or your work experience has reached a certain years. You can both gain or lose points.

The age is given as
25Ė32 years : 30 points
33Ė39 years: 25 points
So, when do I lose points ? When I am 32 or 33 ?


You have 30 points till you are 32 years and 364 days. Once you are 32 years and 365 days or 33 years, you lose 5 points.
I have two questions.

1. For the non related work experience (not considered by ACS) that we enclose in our EOI, Do we need to submit all the relevant documents like payslips, experience letter and bank statements? Will there be any background verification done for the non relevant experience as well?

2. I lived in France for 2 years for completing my Maters. Do I need get PCC from France as well? I had some issues with my bank while I was returning. I didn't complete the process of closure of my bank account and I guess I have been penalized with some fine that I need to clear. Will this effect my PCC?

I have a doubt though, i have different eoi's submitted for 189 and 190, and recently i applied for NSW 190 which is yet to be approved.

If i get a 189 invite, will my NSW 190 be automatically cancelled or i can choose among both.
No. One EOI is not affected by another. It's like two people submitted two different application.

Not claiming points, no need to submit as far as I know. But better ask others and confirm.

When is a police certificate required?

If you are over the age of 16 and have lived in any of the countries listed on this page for a total of one year or more in the last 10 years, you might be asked to get a police certificate from that country.

Zaback,

You are excellent and great thanks for your efforts here.

Could you please answer by below query.

I have lodged my EOI-189 with 60 points on March 17th 2017. I have also selected option 190 for state SA.

My age is going to turn in to 33 by April 2nd 2017. Hence, my EOI will be updated automatically and points reduced to 55.

Is there any changes to keep my hopes on my 189 Invitation before and after APRIL 2nd 2017?

Is there anyway to track the queue details?

Much thankful for your inputs in advance!
