Do more points mean a quicker result?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

my husband and I are applying for either 189,190 visa. Almost ready to go into the pool. My question is - if I got more than 60 which I could if I get a few bits together but I lose time in doing this - would we be picked out quicker if we had more than 60 or doesn't it matter?

Most people wait until asked by dibp. I was travelling to New Zealand so had to get mine done before I was asked for them.. had my 189 a year in July

I have applied for a 190 with state nomination from Victoria under 'Primary School Teacher'. I have 80 points and have been waiting over 16 weeks for a visa grant and still waiting! Since joining these chats and reading other people's details/ experiences, I think it must be occupation related as others who have applied under education or childcare seem to have been waiting a while too. So, I don't think high points are relevant - well, not in my case anyway!

Some state sponsored visa applicants submit an EOI and find they never get picked up despite having 60+ points, and later discover it's because they don't have any employment experience - so it always pays to check individual state requirements.

More points generally does mean quicker turn around, cream floats to the top. I submitted back in 2012 on the first month of the new system with 85 points. I had to wait for the 2nd month before acceptance as the candidates for my profession were even higher.

All worked out well in the end.
