    Has 491 visa closed for offshore?

    Most of the states have now got interim quota for 190/491 until 6th Oct, 2020. So, they will be sending few invitations only for critical care occupations. Most of the states have posted the official announcement on their website, so please check for each state. Also, hope for offshore applicant as of now is NEGLIGIBLE. Maybe things improves post budget announcement. Best of Luck!

    190 State Nom Visa EOI

    What's your ANZSCO code? Which all states have you applied for 190? Also, 190 program is currently closed now and the states will start sending out invites only after they receive the Annual Migration Quota from the federal gvt which is scheduled for 6th Oct, 2020. Having said that, some states have updated on their websites, that until they receive the quota, they might send out few invites only to occupations critical/relevant to the economy during this pandemic. So, if you are from a critical care occupation, you might expect some movement soon. If not, it will be a long waiting time for you. In addition to that, states invites people whose skills are in need of the particular state and high points do not really matter much. They can invite someone with 70 points and not invite one with 95 points. Answer to your second question: Applicant files for state nomination application when their EOI gets picked by any/particular state. However, for some states and occupations (example-VIC for occupations OTHER THAN ICT, Nursing & Engineering occupations), one can submit 190 EOI and can simultaneously file state nomination application and the state will process the application and will declare the outcome-accepted/rejected/refused.

    Yes Maria. OET is just equivalent to the other English language tests. Also, I'm offshore and I have lodged my Visa Application in March, 2020, still waiting for the grant.

    Any offshore 190 been granted recently?

    It actually depends on the Case Officer (CO). Some ask; some don't. So, you just have to wait and if asked, then re do PCC & Medicals.

    Any offshore 190 been granted recently?

    There was a FOI released by DHA & shared by someone (yesterday) on a telegram 190 waiting group which shows the number of offshore grants for 189/190 for each month starting Jan till June, 2020. For the month of June, there have been 44 offshore grants for 190 & 32 grants for 189. This includes both primary & secondary applicants. And Guess what, fun fact is we were unaware of any offshore grants post covid since none of these folks are on any sort of forums/trackers hence unreported in the public eye. So there have been offshore grants in the last 2-3 months as shown in the FOI. May be july (till date) has got it's share of grants too. I hope this info helps!

    subclass 190/491 visa

    Hey, Just wondering why your agent said, English Test (IELTS/OET/PTE) is valid for 5 years? As per my info, DHA accepts English test results for only 36 months that is 3 years for all visa categories. Anyone please correct, if I'm wrong?
  8. Pooja Negi


    OET is specifically designed for Healthcare professionals so if you are a nurse/doctor, go ahead for this one as it is comparatively easier than IELTS. I'm a RN, but when I started my Immi process, OET was not yet into action so I ended up giving IELTS Academic three times and it was one nightmare. lol

    Any offshore 190 been granted recently?

    Hey, A Philippine RN reported her 190 QLD (offshore) grant few days back on a 190 waiting whatsapp group. She lodged her application in Dec, 2019. So, that means DHA is still processing offshore applications but the grants can be delayed. Also, it might be that they are prioritizing/handpicking applications of Healthcare Professionals owing to Covid. I'm an offshore RN too, lodged my 190-VIC application in March, 2020. No updated yet.

    Closing of GSM doesn't affect already lodged 189/190 Visa applications. However, the processing time will be long for offshore applicants owing to Covid. I lodged my 190-VIC application (offshore) in March, 2020. No updates yet. However, a Philippine nurse reported her QLD 190 (offshore) grant few days back, she lodged her application in Dec, 2019. So that means DHA is still processing offshore applications but grants can be delayed.

    If you are eligible for recent graduate pathway, you can directly lodge your application at live in Melbourne website after filing your 190 EOI in skill select. You don't have to wait for a pre-invite in that case.

    Professional references for anmac for Registered Nurse

    Hey! What do you want to know regarding the Professional References? I did my ANMAC last year and may be I can help you with that. :)
  13. Hello, Even with 80+5 points for 190-VIC is still not enough. Seeing, the latest trends (especially for Pro Rata) even 90 pointers are not being invited by VIC. I would suggest that you try to increase your points if you do have the option for that. One of my friends (Business analyst) with 85+5 points and D.O.E as Dec, 2019 is still waiting for the pre-invite from VIC.

    Hey Bella! Congratulations hon!! I'm guessing you got the pre-invite from VIC, right? But I don't understand You applied in AHPRA for registration? What about ANMAC skill assessment, have you got that done? Because if you received the pre-invite, that means you should already have all these things before. Am I missing something here?

    You cannot claim it on your own but It's the ANMAC who assesses and if they have considered all your experience to an appropriately skilled level then yes you can claim the complete experience for your EOI. And all the best wishes for your wife who will be starting her process via the new pathway for IQNMs. They have reduced the costs considerably so that is one good thing.
