    190 VIC refusal

    Hi everyone, Wondering if anyone has an experience with the following: After being invited by Victoria I've received an email from them (after 2 weeks of submitting the application) saying they don't recommend me for 190 visa because I didn't prove that I have a job offer from Victoria. According to their website, this is only a requirement for people wanting to migrate from different Australian state to Victoria. I lived in NSW (left in August 2018) however I applied offshore so this didn't apply to me. It looks like the person going through my application just saw that I have a nsw address on my AHPRA and ANMAC and didn't read the CV where I explain everything. I've written them back right away and waiting for a response. Has this happened to anyone or is it just me having everything complicated lol.

    Nurses invited on 190 VIC?

    Hi everyone, Has anyone been invited by Victoria recently? I'm curious how long is their processing time before they approve and pass on to home affairs, I know they say 12 weeks but any personal experiences? Also, my agent told me that home affairs are quicker with visas for nurses but don't know whether it's true or not. Anyone? Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca, Do you want 190? Meaning you have 65+5 points? If so, no one will tell you how long are you going to wait for the invite. I've heard months to a full year. They generally advise to boost your score to at least 70. Also, I think it depends on your anzco and what are the current shortages in the state. I personally was freaking out about how long it might take but got invited after just three days. I'm surgical though.

    Nurse NSW 190 invites

    I'm so sorry to hear that Pauline. I've read your posts and know you've been waiting for a long time I've said good bye to 198 and got invited for 190 within 3 days! It's still going to be a wait for me though. Good luck with everything

    Nurse Registration

    Hi there, No one in Australia will offer you an RN job without AHPRA registration. The process is quite lengthy and they can be pain in the a** so I would start working on the registration asap.

    Hah! Yeah definitely! Now for the nightmare of submitting documents did you find it easy Jenki? Any advice?

    Hey y'all, I just want to give you heads up that I've been invited to VIC just AFTER THREE DAYS SINCE LODGING THE EOI! It's unbelievable that it was that quick!

    Nurse NSW 190 invites

    Hi there, wondering how did you go? I'm currently waiting for NSW or Vic invitation at 70 points (65+5) and have no idea how long would it take

    I'll apply for that. Do you think I'd get invited from VIC given the fact that I meet the requirements? I mean it looks like that on the Web but I don't want to spend six months - year waiting for something to happen

    Yeah I've already talked to two. The thing is, no one is able to give me any info about how long would I wait for 190. And if it's even possible to get 190 with 70 points. I basically said bye to 189 at this point.

    It's not a working holiday visa but work and holiday it's a bit different. I am within the age range till May so I might go for that. I would be able to work for one employer for 6 months only so I would probably use it more for finding a sponsor or working till I get 190...

    I'm not, unfortunately I had to leave Australia as my student visa expired. I'm currently overseas in Asia. I was thinking going back home to Czech Republic and get an RN job for a few months but I'm a bit worried what ANMAC would say to that if I wanted to ad this experience to the one they've already recognised... Another option would be go back to Oz on Work and Holiday visa and find an RN job while waiting for the 190 to be processed. I guess I just didn't realise it's such a lengthy process, it took me 4 years to get to this point.

    Thank you Jenki75, I actually have over 5 years of experience but ANMAC recognised only the 2.9 years (after degree) which sucks to be honest! I found it so strange that there is no info about 190 processing times and invites. I'm thinking about lodging my application with Victoria as well. Do you know if I have to create a new EOI for that?

    ANMAC Full skills assessment

    I'm applying for 189,190. I put together 65 points so might have bigger chance with 190 (65+5) but have no idea about the waiting time
