Hi romero2005,

Under SkillSelect, you won't receive an invitation unless you have at least the pass mark score, which in this case is 60. But you can submit an EOI with a score below the pass mark.

If you select state or territory sponsorship, that gives you 5 points for a 190 visa (=60 points) or 10 points for a 489 visa (=65 points).

Another option in submitting the EOI without sufficient points is if you want to consider employer sponsorship as an option. Employer sponsorship visas (eg, see the page entitled Work in Australia on the Department of Immigration's website for a wizard, which will take you through the employer sponsored visas) do not require a points text and SkillSelect will be a great way for potential employers to get in touch with you.

I hope that helps.

Hi romero2005

You can apply for the 489 visa if you have the 489 application fee. The 190 visa application fee is a different thing from the 489 application fee.

Having said that, you can apply for the 489 visa if you have a family member that lives in one of the designated areas who is willing to sponsor you.

Just as an FYI - I've never heard of any employer actually looking for candidates in SkillSelect, and I recall a post from Mark Northam saying he's never known of an applicant finding a sponsor this way. You're correct that the system is set up for this to work, but it appears it would be a rare thing to happen.

In general, you simply need to now complete the online visa application, click "Submit", pay the application fee and then attach all your supporting documents, such as:
- positive skills assessment related to your occupation
- relevant qualification/experience documents (diploma/degree, work reference, pay slips/tax slips, etc.)
- IELTS results (or whichever English test you completed)
- passport, birth certificate
- documents supporting any family relationships (marriage certificate + other documents proving partner relationship such as lease, bank statements, etc., birth certificates of children)
- police checks if you've already completed them

There's a document checklist on the DIBP website: Subclass 489: document checklist - invited pathway

Hi romero2005

You can apply for both a 489 and a 190 visa. Then the state and territory governments may offer you an invitation to apply for a visa. The invitation expires in 60 days.

I hope that helps.
