how are CO's assigned??

Recommended Posts

Any of the amazingly knowledgeable people on this forum know how CO's are assigned to 189 visa candidates?

 

Is there any ranking profile based on EOI points or occupation or just done at random??

 

Curious to hear what people think or know? Thank you!!

It's purely my assumption. It may or may not be true :)

 

When you lodge your application, it will be put into any CO's queue based on their applications in hand.

When he/she completes one assessment, she will start next from her queue.

If an applicant makes any delay in providing data/docs, other applicants process will get delayed.

It's totally based on your luck to get into process quickly.

CO allocation time for 189 is within 10 weeks of lodgement and visa processing time is 1 year.

Cannot tell really! Some people got their visa approved in 5 weeks, some in 10weeks. Others longer. It mostly depends on the case at hand.

Yes. When you get your invitation this score doesn't matter.

If your case is clear, grant is assured.
