Hi Guys
 
My spouse has applied for South Australia Visa 489, Occupation : Illustrator 232412
with 75 Points (including State Nomination)
 
The date of submitting our EOI was 27th September 2018.
 
Now, that Category says "Special Conditions Apply" and color coded "Red"
today on 19th November 2018.
 
(a) Will this affect our EOI response ?
(b) My agent is saying no need to stress out as this is only applicable for new entries!
Is this correct? Is he saying right thing ?
 
Please advise.
 
Thanks

Have you already applied for state sponsorship? Or only submitted an EOI?

If you applied for state sponsorship with South Australia before the “special conditions apply” raised the points you will be fine as South Australia will review your application based on the requirements at the time it was lodged.

This happened to me also, literally days after I applied for South Australia state sponsorship they raised the bar with “special conditions apply”.

You are invited to apply for the actual visa.

The South Australia state nomination is 10 weeks.

Congrats. It won't be very long then. Took a couple of hours for mine.

It's from the date you actually apply for the visa.

Hi

 
We have applied for a South Australian Regional (Subclass 489) (Provisional) - State & Territory
on 27 November 2019 with a score of 75 Points.
 
By when can I expect a "Case Officer" ? 
 
How much time it shall take more ?
 
The immigrations website is saying that the processing time is unavailable
due to low volume of applications!
 
Please let me know.
 
Thanks!
