I was recently granted mine 

My timeline was - 

Arrived in Australia November 2016, living in Melbourne on a Working Holiday Visa, me and my fiance

Vetasses carried out in June 2017 and passed 4th August for 8 years skill in Film and Video Editing. 

Applied for 489 in August 2017 with 70/60 points

489 accepted by Tasmania November 6th 2017 and granted a Bridging visa with a week left on the working holiday visa

Moved to Tasmania in December

Medical carried out In December ( passed with Crohns disease )

Case officer contacted June 2018

Visa granted 2 week ago July 2018natly 

 

When I called the department to check waiting times when my employer wanted to extend my contract I was told the wait times for 489's was increased and would defiantly take up to 8 months possibly longer rather than the 6 that used to be advertised.

Im under the impression (but might be wrong) that the points are locked in when you submit your Expression of Interest. As you will have already done this you will be ok.

Can someone else confirm this please?

If your points go down before you are invited, it becomes invalid. its only get locked in if you have received the invitation. Try sending them email explaining your circumstances. Not sure about NT, but NSW fast track your application if you are loosing points due to age etc.


Occupation - Chef,  State - NSW, Points - 65 ( Age - 30, Edu - 15, Aus Edu - 5, English - 10, State - 5 )

VetAssess Applied - 10/06/18, Positive Skill Assessment -  15/10/18 EOI NSW  190 - 23/10/18, Invitation -  15/11/18, Nomination Applied - 19/11/18,   Nomination Approved- 20/11/18, Visa Lodged - 27/11/18, Health exam - 19/12/18, Grant -Awaiting

The NT application would become invalid, however the EOI would just update to reflect the loss of points due to age.
