Thanks
With 65 points you would have low chances for state like VIC who invites the top candidates. Rest 489 is almost closed for all states unless you have a regional job offer.
Bundle of Thanks. So is there any hope in November. ?

489 is in its last phase. September 10th would be the last when states can invite anyone for 489 while DHA would do that on 11th to allow people to have 60 days for visa application launch. So its literally 25 days and almost all states are closed for new applications with exception of 1-2 which need job offer for the application. Overall 489 would be discontinued from 15th November and after that new regional visas 491/494 would kick in. So in the current situation, I would say you are a bit late to the race.

190 you may have better chance as compared to 489. 190 you can apply without job offer and ACT/WA with job offers. VIC it would be difficult but not impossible as they invite top candidates. 189 you can try your luck and see if there are any points you can increase. as 189 race right now is 80-90 points where even 80 points have 3 months backlog and 75 pointers almost 6 months backlog right now.

Can some one tell me please what are the timelines to get a grant for 489 subclass. Once you have lodged your visa and how long is the processing time to get the grant.

Regards,
With 65 points you have following chances for each visa.

189: 0% - your EOI will expire before you get invite ever as the current norm is 80-90 and that's gonna get increase 5-10 points in November.

190: 30-50% - yes you have some chance but there is no surity here because states don't have any defined rules to what they invite and what they don't. They might only invite with somebody at 80-85 points or at 65. It's totally their choice with no clarity what so ever. Some states like ACT and WA needs a job offer while VIC and QLD don't need. QLD is closed and VIC is never certain.

489: 0% - almost all states are closed and won't open again. The one open needs a job offer.

491/494: yes but that's November and chances for that could be high or low or none. There aren't any rules defined for that as of now and only November would make it clear.

All you need is to do some research what AU processes for each state are. What visa options would suit you. Because 65 in software engineering isn't enough honestly speaking as race is with thousands who are sitting at 70-80. State you may get lucky but who knows how much time it would take.

Guys,

I haven't heard of any pre-invites from QLD after 1st week of August where they offered for those who are having near expiry on assessment docs. Or I'm missing something, Have they issued any Pre-invites, ITAs for 'normal' applicants in 489? Should we expect anything from them before 10-Sep?

Cheers,
Vattic

Average about 7 to 9 months of waiting.

I lodged my application on 20th December 2018 and received my grant on 9th July 2019.

Hope this helps.

Default 489 Visa Applicants Pool

Greetings everybody,
I don't want to offend anybody by highlighting here that the forums are most beneficial when we post in the suitable threads. Asking tit bit irrelevant questions in all threads does not help anybody. It only undermines the real essence of such forums and brings inconvenience to others.
This thread, as the name "489 Visa Applicants Pool" suggests, is aimed to focus experiences with 489 Visa Applications, not the pre-invitations, skill assessments and comparisons of visas.
I request all to stick to the subject and hope that this post will be perceived in the spirit it has been initiated.
Cheers,
