    190 Visa Grant

    You're right, my numbers certainly aren't exact, more Aussies are added to the list daily and the ratios are way off. They're drawing out the process so everyone can be vaccinated inside and out. We all know that Government bureaucracies are typically slow. I saw an interview with Gladys berejiklian and even the premiers along with scomo know they'll have to start putting plans forward to being select groups into/out of the country, whether they're travelling Aussies, int students, temp visa holders, PR, etc

    According to an FOI I saw awhile ago, there's a total of 12,000 on-hand 190 visa applications (on and offshore inc dependents). 250,000 temp visa holders left Oz last year and will continue to leave as their visas expire, coupled with a decrease in net migration. What I'm saying is that we make up a very small number in the grand scheme of immigration quotas. Plus, If you're confident in your work and ability, you'll land a job.

    On the on the other hand, quarintine capacity will be increase to >6,000/week again on April 17th. That would mean that the "40,000 stranded Aussies" would be returned in a matter of 3 months, after which they would probably begin moving onto some visa group into the country as they continue with the rollout. I for one find it extremely difficult to believe that the country will not fully utilize quarintine capacity from this point forward. It would be ludicrous not to, they'll import people so that airlines and quarintine facilities stay busy.

    Agreed.

    Priority occupations are being prioritized, there have been grants of non priority occupations both on and offshore, albeit very little for non priority 189/190 offshore. I know a number of families first hand that went back to Oz recently and got there without any issues and other people that ran into trouble. It certainly isn't impossible, far from it, just not as effortless as it once was.

    I sent out my CV to loads of employers and have a recruitment agency actively looking for me. There's lots of work, they just want individuals who are currently in Oz, so finding the right employer has proven to be a tad difficult. I have other priorities in life ATM, so I haven't been pushing lately.

    Still waiting mate. I'm 14 months going on 15. I usually read every news article and forum daily, nothing new has come up from the DHA indicating that they may be granting offshore 189/190 visas more aggressively. Feel free to share if you hear anything positive.

    I genuinely hope that you're right, but I'm certainly not placing any bets.

    It's not me, but someone from my WhatsApp group has been waiting since 2018 for their visa grant. I think these are the more complicated cases which seem to get drawn out. My personal observations tell me that these never ending cases usually involve; spouses, children, newly born children, and various visa mistakes.

    190 NSW, carpenter, 85+5, I applied Feb 12th 2020. I've been waiting +13 months for grant. Absolutely agonizing, it's definitely adversly affecting my health, but I'm still managing to keep my head screwed on. Thinking about the future and better days ahead, helps keep me motivated.

    Honestly, I have no clue. It may work as the secondary applicant or it may not, I personally think that it would be the primary applicant, but who knows. Anything is worth trying i suppose, which is why I'm going for it. I'm not that optimistic about my chances either, but its def beats waiting. I just sent out my CV to some +200 employers and not a peep, other than a head hunter. I'll rinse and repeat for the next X amount of months. Have a read through the commissioners guidelines and let me know what you think. Maybe you can come up with an even better plan!
