Default Age consideration for Australia visa

Hi,

Hope someone can help me.

I am currently 38 years old and getting 25 points from age. I have done ACS bit and working on language proficiency part. I am intending to initiate EOI in couple of months (March 2016). But I will turning 39+ years on 2nd of July. So, I want to know if I will lose points because of age in case I don't receive invitation and not lodged application before that? In short, age is calculated at what point?

Thanks in advance.

33-39 is an age bracket for 25 points. As long as you have not turned 40 (it's the 40th year but you have not completed it to be precise) you should be fine. The EOI system does the calculation for you anyway and it doesn't cost anything. Note that the DIBP looks at time of application and also time of decision criteria. If you lodged whilst 39 but turned 40 when the time of decision comes you wouldn't get the visa - does that make sense?

Thanks Aus_NZ_Expat

So, you mean I have one more year until when I will get 25 points out of age?

Yes. As long as you are not older than 39 (in other words, as long as you have not yet turned 40 years old), you will still get 25 points for age.

Hi,

I forgot about this response. Need your inputs related to applicant's age based on my current situation.

I have lodged my visa in Feb 2017 and I was 39+ at that point. A few CO contact happened since then. All documents related to me was provided by June. I then included my Wife and daughter as co-applicant. I turned 40 in July 2017. I was contacted by CO for last document that is functional english evidence for my wife which was provided on 15th Sept 2017. Now, my question is, since I have turned 40 and the decision is not made, shall I not get a grant?

Please could you let me know if that's the case as per rule?

Regards,
Sourabh
