Visa 491 - Northern Territory

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I am a Mechanical Engineer and i submitted my NT  EOI for Visa 491 on the 30th of December 2019 and i have not received anything yet. Is the waiting time still 6 months or it is shorter since this is a new visa? Has anyone from a different field received any invitation from the NT?

Thanks.

I did receive invitation for the 489 (sept) within a week. Have a few friends here in Darwin who applied for 491 but have not received nothing. Do you have the required 6months upfront?

Thank you for yo reply.

I guess i have to be patient like others. My Skillselect EOI expires in June so i will have to redo it if i am not invited by that time. 

Regards

Probably nomination was quick for u as deadline for end of 489 was approaching. How is job market in mech engineering and is it east to get a job if one relocates with a 489 visa  before getting a job.

Someone in another forum mentioned that it usually takes 4-5 months for offshore applicants. I lodged mine on December 9, 2019. My status was changed to 'CO Assessment' on 20th January 2020. I am prepared to wait until June to receive an ITA from the NT. 491 processing is from 38 - 41 days, so that, I believe, is good news:-)
