Default Mistakes in EOI - Invitation Received

Hi everyone,

I have received visa invitation for SC 189. But I realized, after invitation is received, that there are following 2 mistakes in my EOI:

1. Country of birth is mentioned incorrect.
2. Starting date of employment is mentioned incorrect (This employment is partly claimed and luckily points for this part are not claimed).

Unfortunately, this was my last chance to get an invitation because after that round my age points are reduced.

Now the question is, how should I proceed for Visa Application? Should I correct both mistakes while submitting Visa Application?

1. Maybe termed as a very minor issue.
2. What's the correct date and the EOI shown date ?

Cheers

If you don't mind losing AUD 3670 at least, then take the chance. And take it since it is your last chance.

And yes, you submit all correct info in visa application.

As newbienz said, both seems minor issue and doesn't reduces your points, so you may be fine.

Date is mentioned as 1st of month but actually it is 17th of month. Month and year are mentioned correct.

Country of birth is mentioned as Pakistan but actually it is UAE.

I also think the same but just wanted to know if there is any proper way to rectify and notify DIBP like form 1023 is used for rectification in Visa Application.

I am sure you'll have a valid reason to say why you missed adding correct information reg. country of birth.
Start date is minor one as others say too.

I think you can lodge the application with detailed explanation via required forms.

Yes, use Update Us in ImmiAccount and explain everything once you lodge visa. This will automatically generate Form 1023.

Also, even though it doesn't change points, but does your work experience date affects your EOI date ? Lets say does it make you claim work experience points earlier and hence allow you to submit EOI and have earlier Date of Effect ?

Or you already have enough points without that mistake when you submitted your EOI ?

No this employment was in past. It was in 2007 so it does not affect my points in any way.

I don't see any problem with these mistakes. I've seen such minor mistakes in EOI and people getting through smoothly through the process without any questions being asked. You should be fine so long as you did not overclaim points in your EOI. Moreover, when you hit the APPLY VISA button in your EOI and start to fill the online forms, most of the information from EOI is already pre-populated in the visa forms. Not sure (or don't remember) how it is now, but some of this information is even editable for you to correct, add, or reorder.
