Hey Guys ! Hope you are all doing good.

I would like to know what is the average processing time, or the time to receive ITA after EOI. I have lodged by EOI on 24th July 2017. Can I expect an invitation the coming round on Aug 12 2017? I have only 60 points ( Age-25 Degree-15 English-20) and looking for 189 visa for Chemical Engineer-233111 .

I am a bit worried , with so many changes taking place, including the proposed residence in Australia before issuing PR.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Asheesh , I am in the same boat as you. Apparently, it takes around 14 days for ITA normally for Chemical Engineer. So, you can expect it in the 12th Aug round.
Do check out the immitracker website.

A total of 27 invites has been given so far according to skillselect website. Hope that covers all of the 70 pointers in our occupation. I am pretty optimistic about receiving the invite in the next two rounds.

Hey! It seems none of the applicants below 70 points have got an invite unfortunately. Fingers crossed for further rounds.

Hi friends,
I just got 10 points for language (IELTS, 7.0+), so it made my total points of 65 points. Do you think I will get an invitation soon with Chemical Engineer 233111 soon? Not submitted EOI yet, waiting for IELTS official paper before submitting.

Man,
Going with CDR for EA, Chemical Engineer 233111 is less competitive, so with even with 60s points we still have a good chance

No, I did not.As Asheesh said, no one below 70 points have been invited yet. Hopefully, the situation will be better by the time your EA confirmation comes.

Pretty sure you will get an invite in 1st or 2nd round after you submit your EOI provided DIBP reduces the cut off to 65 points.

Hey Harman,
Hope that 70s points will be clean soon. So far as I see, there are less competitive with Chemical Engineer.
I just submitted my EOI today, :fingerscrossed:

Apart from one occupation, cut off points are still at 70. But since DOE has moved to 17/8/17 for non pro ratas, in all likelihood cut off will decrease to 65 by 2nd round of Sep or 1st round of Oct. Hence, a good chance that 65 pointers(DOE pre Aug) will be invited around December.However, probability of 60 pointers getting invited in the current year is next to zero.

Note: These points are analysed on the basis of unofficial information available.
