    Visa help for carpenter

    Hi guys, I'm after a little help on whether staying in Sydney on a 189/190 visa is doable. I have 70+5 points for a 190, I think. I'm a carpenter living in Sydney currently on a second working holiday visa. I've been offered sponsorship and am currently in the process of doing that (but would prefer to have a visa that isn't tied to one employer). I have around 6 months left on my current working holiday visa and would prefer to have a 189 or 190 rather than the TSS. If I do the skills assessment and lodge the EOI now - does anyone know the current time frame for an invitation to apply in NSW? Am I right to think that if I've been invited and submitted my application - I'll go onto a bridging visa while it's being processed? Also open to considering the new 491 (regional) visa. Does anyone have any experience of that one? Thank you
