  1. Dear All, I have received an invitation for 65 points EoI but I am thinking that probably my work experience as 20 hours won't count towards the total experience. Anyway, I have already lodged the 2nd EoI at 60 points back in February, and I have seen invitation were sent with 60 points EoIs lodged in October 2013 for Electronics Engineer, with 1 year experience as an Electronics Engineer, for the same profession I was sponsored under 457 visa. My question is whether I will be invited again on the basis of 60 points I have claimed if I not choose to apply for PR for 65 points EoI invitation? Your answers will greatly help us. Thanks.

    Reg 189 skilled independent visa

    Hi, I want to apply for Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) visa.I have total 3.5 years of Experience in IT industry and i just want to know that will i get 5 points for my work experience or not. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm really desperate for some answers for my problem from the more experienced members of the forum so I'd really appreciate your help. My husband updated his EOI with the Australian Computer Society skills assessment results on Oct 18 and we got an invite on Oct 20 since the points calculated were 75. We put in our application on Oct 21 and paid the fees as well. The next day while going through the ACS assessment for some reason, we realised that the assessment was a bit ambiguous and they had actually not given him the points for ALL of his work experience which would reduce our points score to 65 now. As of now, although it was inadvertent, it looks like we have overestimated our points on both the EOI and the application. I was trying to find out what to do and some of the forum posts say that they can cancel our application and ban us from applying for the next few years. We do not have a case officer yet but it was an honest mistake. Who do we contact regarding this? Do we: 1) Fill out a change in circumstances form and attach it with the application 2) withdraw the application (will we get a refund?) and reapply after correcting the details on the EOI? We are both at our wits end since my current visa expires in Jan 2014 and I need to have the bridging visa to continue working here! Can someone please help? Many thanks!
