I haven't received an invite yet. I am waiting for it and hoping that the point change would be advantageous for me.

1) they want to make sure they invite people who are highly skilled and ensure unskilled partners don't tag along. If this is the scenario, then invites will resume to a normal level only after November point change.

2) they want to push as many people as possible to the new regional visa's. For this, they have reduced the invites now so that many will feel hopeless and opt for the regional visa. If this is their strategy, then the invites might or might not increase to normal levels until they have people actively applying for the new visa. Because of the point change, it is highly likely that applicants will have a ray of hope and won't opt for the new regional visas for at least a few months, until the situation is clear.

3) the third option is highly unlikely. This option is that DHA already has enough applicants in the pipeline to meet the 18000 quota set for this year. If that's the case they won't invite any more than a 100 for the rest for the year. Everyone needs to understand that just because the quota of 18000 exists, they don't have any obligation to fill it. If they don't believe filling it is good, they won't.

4) the next option is that they are just reducing the invites to clear the pipeline for the new point system. I don't know the likelihood of this being the case. If that's the case, then they won't invite many people until they have a clear pipeline to begin the processing for the new point system. This may take till December to happen.

Each applicant is like the story of several blind man describing an elephant
So the comments on the process and what will happen are what suits them best

Each person is correct and wrong at the same time

Cheers

Then again I was trying to be fair when I described the scenario. If you think my interpretation of the scenario was just to suit singles, please say your thoughts on why the number of invites has drastically reduced this month. Thanks.

My personal theory is that they don’t need to issue so many invites so early in the year
They have a very long line of application already waiting for processing which is sufficient for several months
So issuing invites in 1000 will only lead to an increase in processing times, without any advantage to the department
They may thrown in a 1000 round in between to maintain the pipeline otherwise it will be a few 100 only per round

If the regional visa is successful, then forget that they will issue 18,000 grants during the year
It will be much much less

Cheers

That's true as well. That was one of the things that I said. But the reason I said that was highly unlikely was because they have never done that before. They always invite every month regardless the number of applicants awaiting processing. And they usually slow it down at the end of each year. This is the first time that invites have dipped so low early on. When the next month's invite comes, we can be fairly certain on what might be the case.

I understand what you saying but the ceiling for 189 last year was around 43000 include NZ and the invites issued were 23000 so DHA might use that ceiling for undecided 19000 applications for 189 because from july 2019 new financial year new ceiling 18,652 for new program.

It's good to see people are still hopeful about immigration. Despite all the changes, everyone seems to be having a positive attitude.

And applicants with unskilled people tagging along have a disadvantage, which is totally fair. Since up until now, single people were disadvantaged because unskilled people who tagged along took invites meant for skilled applicants.

Do you really think all the family members should be skilled to come to Australia? why? Its merit of primary applicant which is allowing them to work and stay. Anyone with merit should be allowed irrespective of their status. Btw what is the logic of giving 10 points to bachelor? local exp? yes, what local experience they need when you are a s/w engineer? or working in-front of machines? Also, what is the guarantee of single getting married with skilled partner or even married people claiming single's points? Ain't they ruining the chance of someone ?

I am waiting for the mess starting from Nov.
