    491 visa with 85 points, is this enough?

    Thanks all - so the advice is the 491 visa is a completely different ball game to the 189 so no need to freak out when I see what points are needed for the 189 invites every month hey Jem are you in the U.K. doing social work ? I really want out of here and if I’m going to continue doing this job might as well do it somewhere with better weather and quality of life im still waiting for my skills assessment from the AASW? You ? ive been waiting 5 weeks tomorrow since they confirmed they have all my required paperwork , I’ve read some stories on this site that it can take 7-9 months :/ so we will finalise our visa application at Xmas after the medicals

    491 visa with 85 points, is this enough?

    Thanks I suppose I should rephrase . Is social workers in demand enough with 85 points on a 491 visa? I’m a bit worried as I saw January’s points offers in 189/190 was beginning on 90 points ? i suppose my real question. Is 85 points enough for 491 or should we give up ? I believe there is high demand in QL for social workers and we want to live in Cairns up north of QL,
  3. Hi all I am a qualified Social Worker, 6 years post-qualified experience in front line Child Protection and am now a Senior Social Worker. Does anyone have any idea how many points invites are occurring for the 491 visa? We are awaiting for my skills assessment from the AASW to come through, but once that is in Skills Select site says we have 85 points. will this be enough for a 491 invite for the state of Queensland? Any Advice would be most welcome :)
