Hi,
Even I had got invited under NSW stream 2. Had 80 points including 5 from state. It usually take abt 12 weeks to get the approval for your nomination though ours came in 6 weeks. So just hold on till then and you can send them an email.
All the best and wish you a speedy grant.

I am posting on this thread for the first time. I have been reading through many threads but have not found many stories about people waiting in NSW Stream 2, so though I would get the ball rolling. My wife qualifies for Public Relations Professional (225311), which required State Sponsorship.

My, well me and my wife's Australia story is 3 years in the making. We seriously started considering Australia as a destination in Aug 2013. We talked to few friends and relatives there. Talked to them about the PR process. We were very confused if we should take an agent or go in ourselves. We even talked to. A few agents in India (I am from India) but they did not really fill us with confidence. There was more jargon than actual talk, and I should know, I do it for a living!!

The main website was a lot of help and it gave me the confidence to go ahead. I started by making a checklist of all the documents, and collecting them. Finally by end of Dec 2013 we felt we were ready. I got all the docs notarised and lodged a skill assessment with VETASSESS on 11 Jan 2014. In the meantime my wife took IELTS in March 2014. The skill assessment from VETASSESS took a loooong time. We had to send couple of reminders and finally we got a positive assessment on 14 May 2014. The same day, i lodged an EOI for a 190 visa. My wife qualified with 65 points.

And after that nothing. For 1.5 years, nothing. We kept scanning state sponsorship lists buy there has been no sponsorship for public realtions professional. To be honest, we completely gave up hope and started thinking about Canada. But I dont like cold weather that much and was not very enthusiastic.

Then out of the blue on 15 Jan 2016, couple of days ago, we got an email that NSW has invited my wife for a state sponsorship nomination. I was puzzled and searched online to find out that we were nominated under something called Stream 2 which rewarded people with high points on CSOL, but whose professions are not in the nomination list.

On 17th, I submitted all the docs for NSW nomination. things work out. Thanks for listening to the long saga and for all the stories shared.
First of all congratulation on your grant. I am one of the lucky person which obtained my PR through NSW Stream 2 high point.
I have always wanted to go back to Australia after completing my master back in 2008. A couple of my friends successfully obtained their through an agent in 2010. Thus, I decided to contact the same agent back in March 2013 to complete the initial assessment. The first consultation went very well and I am amazed with the professionalism of this agency which resulted in myself appointing them to handle my application.
So in the first couple of months, i got my IELTS sorted out while necessary documents were provided to the agent for VETASSESS assessment. However, when the documents were ready, there were no states which sponsor my profession (Marketing Specialist) anymore. So here is where the waiting games begun, I constantly check and hope for rules change in my favour but to no avail.
Early 2016, I already wanted to give up as my documents would expire in May 2016 and I didnt want to get them renewed. Plus, i spoke to another agent which mentioned that it is difficult to get PR with my profession. So with a heavy heart, I inform my agent of my decision. But, my agent inform me of NSW high point program and asked me to give it a go. And I went for it since there is nothing to lose.
From that point onward, my application move rather quickly and I got the exclusive grant early this month.
So for all of those stilling waiting for a grant, please dont give up as it took me slightly more than 3 years to get it.

No. As far as I could see, PR was not in any state list. But we got invited under the stream 2 process
