Hi,

I applied for my eoi and not knowing i did not select "not related" for my experience in eoi for the experience deducted by ACS. I have 60 points, but Eoi calculated 65 points. I assumed eoi will chk my ACS letter and deduct the points accordingly.
But today I got an invite and got to know I made this mistake.

Please can someone help me with this what to do now.

Currently I applied with ielts with 0 points (minimum 6 across all sections)

Can I now apply for ielts and secure 7 if possible and update my visa application with extra 10 points before my invite expires?

Or

If above is not possible, can I drop my invite asap so that at least I can be in queue with 60 points?

Or

Do I need to wait for 2 month not submitting my invite and then update my eoi?. In this case what will be the effective date of submitting my eoi?

Thanks in advance
Mach

Hi Friends,
First of all congratulations to everyone who has got an invite recently to lodge the VISA application.
Creating this thread for everyone who has lodged or planning to lodge his/her VISA application in the month of July.
Lets discuss our status where we are at present and any communication we get from CO.
Lets help out by knowing the timelines and hope to continue till we receive the grants.
this thread should also be used as helping out each other and we need advises from people who have already filled out the VISA form and uploaded the documents.
All the best everyone on this next step and hope we all get a grant soon.

Cheers.

Oh that is strange and surprising.
If that is the case I may need to apply for UK PCC and I don't know how much time it takes. :(

Can anyone throw a light on that.

Hi there,
Where did you get the information that PCC is required when we stay in a country >= 90 days?. As per the most current website of DIBP, it's still one year Character and police certificate requirements

ACS letter is valid for 24 months from date of issue, so you're good unless CO comes back asking for a latest one, but I guess they won't.

Folks, looks like we have a duplicate thread. Can a moderator merge the two, or something??

hi Macho,
Although this is an honest mistake but as clearly if you had claimed correctly with 60 points you would not have received an invite this time around.as no 60 pointers were invited this time.
Incorrect claiming of points has later been rejected at the visa stage.
So there are many cases where overclaiming of points led to VISA rejection.
While there are other cases also where the CO mailed the applicant back and said as this is an honest mistake and you would have anyway received an invite with 60 points so he did not reject the application.

But the weights are heavily against you as the probability of yours receiving a VISA this or next time were very slim.

I would suggest to let this invite lapse. Meantime give IELTS or PTE
update a new EOI after this invite lapses and you will have a new invite in SEPT with updated points.

anyway with 60 points you would have received an invite by Sep so it wouldn't matter.

the invite is based on EOI and now you cannot make any changes based on new IELTS.

Pls think carefully and decide.

I would suggest you let this EOI expire, in the two months waiting time you can write IELTS and try to score 7 in each band, note that for 189 it's mandatory to score 7 in each.
After two months, apply for a new EOI with corrected experience and new IELTS scores.

Yeah, you should let the EOI expire. And aim for 8 in IELTS and you should get the invite almost immediately in the next round!!:)
