You are right, I noticed that on myimmitracker as well. The problem with Queensland is that they close many occupations too soon and in an unpredictable manner just like what they did last year. It is possible that they're delaying the invitations because they are aiming for higher points candidates.

I dont think so for non pro-rata candies. in 189 upto 70 pointers (non-pro of course) have high hope so they may not apply in QLD with these kinds of restrictions they have rather thay will apply in NSW... QLD only will get 65 and below unless someone has a job offer from QLD.

Good Luck,

wondering if you qualify the conditions for off shore
Eligibility criteria
To be eligible for Queensland nomination, you must meet both the Australian Department of Home Affairs (DHA) criteria and Business and Skilled Migration Queensland (BSMQ) criteria for your chosen visa category.



The DHA criteria requires you to:

have a points test result of 65 or higher, inclusive of state nomination points
have a positive skills assessment in your nominated occupation
meet the minimum English language requirement of COMPETENT, unless a higher level is required by your assessing authority
be under 45 years of age
submit additional documents if invited to lodge an application for a subclass 190 or subclass 489 visa.


BSMQ criteria requires you to:

have an occupation on the QSOL ‘Offshore’ list
provide evidence that you have a minimum of 2 years post-qualification work experience in your nominated occupation. More experience may be required for certain occupations
commit to living and working in Queensland from the date that you arrive in Queensland to live permanently
offshore applicants applying under an ICT, Cook or Chef occupation must show evidence of a minimum 12 month job offer with a Queensland employer registered in Australia. The job offer must be related to your occupation, and evidence is required showing acceptance of the offer.
Please note: if you are an overseas PhD graduate, you may be eligible for a work experience requirement waiver if you have a minimum 12 month job offer with a Queensland employer registered in Australia. The job offer must be related to your occupation, and evidence is required showing acceptance of the offer.

hi dear, you have mentioned that BSMQ replied back that "they process invites" does this means they process after the payment to formal nomination or they process EOIs within 4-6 weeks?

meanwhile i had asked something and got reply like this...
Q : Hi, I noticed in your website it is written that "Due to the high demand of onshore 489 EOIs received (including Masters Alumni applicants) BSMQ will only be issuing invitation to those applicants that are currently working in regional as well as having ongoing job offer."
Can you please tell me whether it is only applicable for 489 or it is applicable for 190 also? Does this mean BSMQ wil not send invitation to 190 offshore applicants?

A : As the message states it is to do with ONSHORE 489 APPLCIANTS.

Q : Hi, I have filed an EOI as structural engineer 233214 in 190 sub-class from offshore. I just want to know the quota is still available for 233214 or finished. And whether my EOI will be considered or not. Also please let me know any probable response time from BSMQ.

A : If the occupation is still showing on our website then it is still available at this stage. All EOI’s will be assessed however not all will receive an invitation. You have to wait at this stage until we get to yours to see if you will receive an invite or not.

I definitely qualify to both conditions with 5 extra points, and that’s why I submitted my EOI in the first place. Let’s hope that it’s a matter of time and all applicants will get nominated.

recently i approached BSMQ regarding the current turn around time for the submitted EOIs. They have replied back that it is currently 6-8 weeks.

So they’ve increased the processing time 2 more weeks than last week. It seems that they are receiving too many EOIs currently.
