Smile Are 75-80 points enough for a 189 invite for Software Developers??

Hi all,

I'm new to the forums here and hope this question makes it without any forum rule violations!

I'm thinking about applying for a 189 and i would have 75 points based on my calculation, which would be updated to 80 in October after my work experience is updated in EOI (with current employer end data left blank). But i see that the last two invitational rounds, noone below 90 were invited!

Are 75-80 points good enough to get an invite?

Also, I've seen a post by an immigration company that DHA has changed the way work experience is considered for your EOI application. They claim, even though ACS cuts down your exp based on ICT Major/Minor being relevant to your occupation, DHA will still consider your full work exp. The article is dated Jan 6, so i'd say it is still pretty new.

Could anyone please confirm if this is true? That would put me at 85 points.

Thanks for your time!

To be very honest, its impossible to get invited at below 90 for the foreseeable future, even if you manage to lodge EOI at 85 points which you will have after Oct 2020, You will have thousands of people before you in the queue with earlier DOE and DHA is not giving enough invites so No chance at 85 points as well. At 90 based on the current trends the wait time is 6 months for 2613

Unfortunately, for software related professions, 90 seems to be the new minimum to have any chance whatsoever nowadays.

You are taking the risk on your shoulders when you are claiming points for experience deducted by ACS
The CO may or may not accept it and in case he doesnít, your application will be rejected outright and fees forfeited
Iscah is the only Mara agent who is recommending this on the forum
I have not come across any other major Mara agency openly advocating the same

Cheers

I find this very intriguing. Here is another Mara agency stating the same thing: https://www.australiavisa.com/immigr...-deeming-date/

Read carefully
He says that if your application is rejected, you an take DHA to court
How many applicants an afford to Engage a lawyer and fight it out ?

But at the end of the day, it’s the applicant who has to decide if the risk is worth taking or not
Any other person saying yes or no has no value

Cheers
