Hi all, I'm a 28 years old software engineer working in India. On 31st March, I submitted my EOI in 189 type visa with 70 points. It's been 6 months since the submission. Today I researched about the invitations in 189 type visa, I saw that applications with 85+ points only are getting the invitations. Now I'm confused how to go about it. Should I wait on it or should I go and try in 190 type visa where I'll get 5 extra points. Is there any chance of me getting the invitation with 70 points? And if I decide to try in 190 type visa, do I need to cancel my existing EOI or I can have both 190 and 189 type EOIs active simultaneously? Any help will be appreciated.
Hi, I have lodged an EOI for a 189 visa and my points qualify me. im led to believe that with a company sponsorship you can get this visa anywhere from 3 to 9 months. Im currently working for a company that could put me on the 482 visa. which could take up to 3 months. I believe after 3 years you can apply for PR which would make things more secure. Personally i dont like the idea of being held to a companies whims when it comes to my future and would prefer to hold all the cards myself, as it were. So i wonder would it be possible to transfer to the 189 visa when i get the invitation through etc or would this invalidate my visa and make me unlawful?
