Regarding 491invitation and process timing

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I have logged my EOI on 85pints for 491 visa in WA in first week of October. I just want to know is there any chances   that I can get my invitation till end of November as I am registered nurse in Australia and Mine occupation is on PMSOL as well. Moreover, I am onshore and currently on visitor visa.

Impossible to say, all the processes have been thrown out the window recently.  The October round hasn't even been run.

So, do I need to extend my visa in that case as my visa expires on 1st December 2020

What type of RN you belong to (mental health, emergency, aged care, etc)? WA is currently reviewing RN on their occupation list so it is pretty tough to get state nomination from WA for RN. Migration list for WA

Unless you are applying for family sponsor instead of state nomination.

 Just realised I posted the wrong link, here the right one: https://migration.wa.gov.au/services/skilled-migration-western-australia/occupation lists

But yea, pretty hard to get invite in WA for RN and with 85 points. Have you considered employer sponsor pathway?

Oh, your current workplace does not want to sponsor you? Because I'm also RN in WA and got my PR from employer sponsor pathway.

I see, then put in your EOI now, and hope that you get invite during November invite round (normally occur on 11-15 of the month).

From August stat, you might have a chance: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skillselect/invitation-rounds
