Can he also apply for a tourist visa while on 457, and waiting for 189 grant? Sorry I know this is a bit complicated. Just finding ways for him to visit here, should his company not send him back soon.

TIA
Hi Mate,

I will explain the rules which i heard from my friends. If it is wrong, someone from this group please correct it.

After a person applies for the grant, he will get a mail with bridging visa. But that bridging visa gets activated only after 457 visa of that person expires. Hence technically the person with 457 visa can travel to AUS with that visa till it gets expired.

I heard this from my friend who has got the 189 Grant already.

If it is wrong please someone who knows the process correct it.

In case you are still not satisfied, contact an agent for this.

Let's say he applies for 189 on-shore, he will automatically be granted a bridging visa A which will be activated after 457 expires and before 189 grant. He can live, work, travel (apply for bridging visa B) without problem.

If he applies for a tourist visa while on 457, the 457 would automatically be cancelled. So don't do it.

I am not entirely sure about applying for a visa while offshore but with a current valid visa. Please consult a MARA agent. But I don't understand why one has to stay offshore to apply 189 but want to live in Australia while waiting for 189.

Cheers,

Anyone have additional info on the below iscah post

DHA have changed their work experience policy as follows –
(this is an extract from their Policy Advice Manual as it is not listed anywhere on their website)

“If the skills assessing authority’s opinion would result in the applicant being awarded less points than the applicant claimed in their EOI, then decision makers should consider the information in ANZSCO and apply the more beneficial outcome in determining when the applicant was working at a skilled level.”

Contacted acs, but they have replied like there is no change from their side and asked to contact dha. Emailed DHA, but only automated response . I was assessed last year with AQF major in computing with 261312 job code. As per policy manual, if the 2 year deduction is ignored, then additional 5 points can be claimed which will upgrade the score to 90.

Thanks for your reply.

He left Au because his project ended. His company might or might not call him back.
So, if he'll get the invite soon, he'll do it from offshore. Looking at the current trend, it could take up to a year or more to get a grant. So if his company doesn't send him back, there will be no option for him to visit here. I know this might seem like a small problem for some, but it is to us.

Cheers

I see. Just making sure that his 457 remains active then he can come back anytime to Aus to lodge the visa then he could get bridging visa.

The reason for 457 not being active before expiry include: the company contacts DHA saying he is no longer working in Aus. or He applies for another Aus visa.

Make sure you confirm this with a MARA agent.

cheers,

If he still has a valid 457 just travel back to Australia and apply for 189 on shore. He could travel back offshore as long as his 457 is valid.

You should ask the company if they're going to continue sponsoring his 457. If thats the case you can apply for a tourist visa , travel on shore then apply for 189. Note that this means he is not allowed to work or study for the entire duration of the processing time since he is a "tourist".

Hello everyone, I have applied for my EOI on March 2019 with 75 points, and increased to 85 in December. For how many years will my application be valid, and when will it get expired? Also, I hope to get invited before April 2020. Is there any possibility of getting it before April?
Thanks

EOI is valid for 2 years from the date of creation.

So march 2021.

No idea about the chances of getting an invitation.

Cheers
