Expression of Interest

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am new to the forum and not sure if this has been discussed before - if it has i apologise.

I am currently gathering paperwork to submit an expression of interest for 189 visa, however I have been doing some research and am not sure the 60 points I have are enough to be offered a Visa.

How do they decide who to invite to submit a Visa application? It is purely on points? or do they take into account occupation too?

 

Thanks

There are a number of factors as all occupations have a ceiling for numbers, while others are affected by pro rata arrangements requiring higher scores. Since the new year, even the minimum score to receive an invite has been quite high at between 70 to 75 points. A 190 should be considered if it is an option.

Thanks for the reply,

 

I am an Early Childhood Teacher and have had my skills assessed for this - from what I can tell there has not been many visas approved from this occupation - do I still need to get some more points to apply?

I applied under the first month of the existing system a few years ago, I needed 85 points to get noticed and was accepted in the second month.

At the moment no occupations are being invited for 189 with 60 points and that will remain until July 1.

thank you all for your help!!!

 

i am going to do my english tests again to get a higher score which will bring me up to 70 points and then may consider a 190 visa to give me the extra 5 points.

Hi dear members,

First of all I would like to thank each one of you for helping us through every stage of Visa process, in anyway you could.

This forum is an incredible platform for people like me, who seek guidance, advice and direction.

I am looking forward to applying for 189 PR Visa. I have a couple of questions as follows

1. Does ACS skills assessment, require English Language score.
I mean, do we have to upload our English Language Score while filing skills assessment. I am asking this because I am planning to apply for ACS skills assessment first and then go for English Language Test.

2. I want to know as per ACS,how much experience will be calculated in my case. Following is the description of my Job details.

I am Bachelor of Engineering in Computer from Pune University, India
