You will get 12 months from the date of police check or medical, which ever is earlier.

I can’t remember if we ended with 60 or 65 points. We ended up using an MA for the EOI and visa app as I was just about to have a baby and we needed help!
EOI was for Queensland as we have family there. Took about a week to get a state nomination which was early jan 18.
The vet assess process was the longest took about 3 months from start to finish.
So visa app was end of jan. MA was fantastic help for us under the circumstances and also good to answer any questions if your app isn’t straight forward.
Good luck.

The points are irrelivant and only come in to play when you apply for state sponsorship.

I did apply for state sponsorship with 75 points...

Hello all

I applies for 489 ST visa for Queensland on 24th March 2018. Its been two months but the IMMI Status is still Recieved. Patience is a very hard virtue. Reading the forum some people are waiting since 2 years...so that's commendable. Anyone who got the grant recently please update....
