EOI before PR policy changes

What if I submit EOI just before PR policy changes and was invited after the change.

Does that means I need to apply on old policy or new policy?

Application timeline and PR policy changes

July First week.

What if I submit EOI just before PR policy changes and was invited after the change.

Does that means I need to apply on old policy or new policy?

Note: Actually I have scheduled my PTE A exam in the month of June with 1 week for result, it is pretty close to July 1st week.

We won't know this until DIBP actually publishes them in July 2015.


No one other then TOP DIBP & IMMI personal would be privy to this information.


Will the PR Policy likely to change this coming July-2015?
Actually i have cleared PTE this month, so want to know.

Hi Folks,

If I have an active invite (say on June1) and there is a policy change in PR 189 like fee hike etc, on July 1 2016. Will this new fee be applicable if I apply for a visa based on the invite received before the policy change OR all applications done on or after July 1 have to pay the revised fee?

Please clarify.

Thanks in advance.

there is no certain date for policy changes. Policies CAN change all year round without a set date.

By policies I mean act, regulation, and department policy

If you mean the occupation lists, occupation ceiling, etc., yes, they do change in July of every year, and if you're invited before an occupation is removed, you can still proceed with a visa application with this invite

Understood. But what Incase of fee hikes?
Does the date of visa lodge count or the date of invite before the hike have the option to pay the old fee?

Depends on how the minister decides, but historically it has always been the visa lodgement date that decides the fee
