However, they are assuming uniform invitations of 1100 every month. If we look at last year, compared to the July round, the invitations doubled for Aug, September while increasing 4 times in Oct, Nov and tapering off later.

I think July round was for 700-800, so based on last year trend Aug- Sept could be around 1,400 each, Oct-Nov could be around 2800 each, Dec-Jan - 1,400 each, Feb-Mar - 900 each, April,May,June - 100 each.

If this trend is followed I and fellow 75 pointers may have some chance of an early invite, if not then with Nov points change things will get a lot more uncertain.
I wish your prediction comes out to be true. However, you should also know that total quota for visas have been reduced to 18k this year as compared to 44k last year. Considering this, just half all your numbers. So, its a grim grim chance for 75 pts.

Not disappointing anyone but after visiting a well renowned migration agent and after communicating with Iscah, 75 pointers are unlikely to get the invite anytime soon
I myself lodged the EOI in Oct 2018 with 75 points for 189 but still no luck. I have been told to increase my points to minimum 80 to get an invite in 3-4 months. Let's hope they realize how hard it is to score even 70 points and don't increase the points requirement from 85 (like accounting). All the best everyone meanwhile Canada is not a bad option either.

Does NSW work the same way?
Higher points, higher chances of invitation.

If you've not added spouse points, there's still chances of doing that and making your score boost to 80 points.

Good Luck Waqas !!!

Hi Waqas,

Under which skill you applied, as most of my friends/colleagues with 75 points got invite way back in Jan/Feb 2019 and they had similar DOE.

I see the Aus map. It can certainly hold a lot. Hopefully the migration plan will change in future once the infra is ready.

Also why nobody thinking of NZ as an option.

From what I know, you can't apply for NZL PR unless you already have work visa and working or worked in NZL.

So confused.

My EOI updated on 9 July as I got additional 5 points taking it to 75 points so my new DOE is 9 July.

Profession - 233612 (Non Pro Rata)

My current visa expires in Nov-20.
And I have the option to do PY before Nov-19 to take it to 80 points but it'll cost $15K and I'll get the points in Sep-20

Either I wait till Sept-19 to see the trend or just wait to get additional 10 points for being single in Nov-19. As I cannot possibly increase my points further besides PY.

Any insight?

I hope you filed a new EOI so that you get full 2 years validity ?

Cheers
