As seen from immi (immi dot gov dot au slash skilled slash general-skilled-migration slash pdf slash points-tested-visas.pdf )

"Phasing out of existing points tested skilled migration visa subclasses:
•From 1 July 2012, points tested skilled migration visas granted outside Australia (subclasses 175, 176 and 475) will be closed for new applications
•From 1 January 2013, points tested skilled migration visas granted in Australia (subclasses 885, 886 and 487) will be closed for new applications."

It seems onshore applicants have 6 months more than off-shore guys to apply for PR without EOI?

Hi mate,

I am very clear with your situation. To apply for 885, you must have a positive skills assessment in hand while for 485, you just have to provide evidence that you have applied for assessment (not yet receive assessment result).

If you held a student visa on Feb 2010, you are allowed to apply for a Temporary Skilled Graduate visa (Subclass 485), not 885.

Hope that I am wrong:confused2:

The keyword in what you have underlined is ELIGIBLE. It seems for those who had or was applying for 485 on Feb 2010, not those held student visa.
