Hello All,

I had written to the NSW Skilled Immigration Team asking whether the process of inviting applicants is on hold or ongoing. They've replied saying, "Please note that we are currently reviewing the NSW 190 skilled occupation list for the 2017/18 program year. Updates will be published on our website in due course. I suggest you visit our website regularly."

So, hopefully all the 70 pointers should receive an invitation from NSW by next week. Also, within their signature, the website mentioned is NSW Department of Industry. I did go through this website, but, I couldn't find any page, where it shows about the number of invitations sent in the last few months and/or about the past/present/future invitation rounds (I am aware that their invitation process is not specific to any date).

Anyway let's hope for some good news soon. Have a good weekend everyone! :)

Thanks,

Suhail.

Unsure where you got this idea, but that is an unlikely scenario. NSW appear not to invite for all skills on a continuous basis. As best as I can understand they will have a number of occasions during the year where a particular skill will be invited. On those occasions they will invite based on a combination of points, English and experience. There is no "cut off" as such, but previous invites are those that with top end points for English, Experience or high end for both. Assuming that "all the 70 pointers" will get an invite is unrealistic I'm afraid.

If Internal Auditor stays in the Occupation List, is there any chance I could get an Invitation with 75+5 as the cut off for auditors is 75 and everyone would have 75+5 actually?

My DOE is end of August.

Kind Regards

Okay FFacs. I should've been clear. I meant 70 pointers belonging to 261313 - Software Engineer job stream. Let us see if I am successful next week. Any idea which job occupations are presently getting invited by NSW?

Thanks,

Suhail.

Sadly no. They seem to just invite a batch from a particular skill, then no more for a while, then another batch. It's a competitive process, so for any one skill only a subset will be invited. Those with high scores for English and/or experience appear to be best placed. Those with high scores for age/partner skills and low for E&E tend to fair less well.

English - 20 points
Experience - 10 points (5 years)
You're in with a pretty good shout. Don't take that to mean anything certain, but you'll be up there with the group who have a chance. Not everyone is going to have 75+5. There will be hundreds with <75 points hoping for something. Many of the 75 pointers will be content to wait for 189 rather than have the cost and obligations of 190. The 189 queue isn't sprinting through the 75 pointers, but those filing today would be expecting an invite before December, I would guess, so I can't imagine many file 190 EOI.

Hi mates,

NSW processing the cases. Can any one guide.

Thanks
Hi Asif,

Do you mean if NSW is reviewing the EOI's? Yes, but, I am not sure what job occupations are getting or will be getting invited. If you are asking about NSW processing times, then they do not have a specific date when they send invitations. It is an ongoing process and not restricted to any specific day/date. Hope this helps!

Regards,

Suhail.

Hey everyone,

Sorry If this is not the exact place to ask this question, can anyone please tell me that on an average in a month or a year how many rounds are being conducted by the nsw for invitations, as it is pretty much unclear online.

Thanks in advance
