I now have the option of withdrawing my application or go ahead and see what happens? Does anyone have similar experience and can advise me what to do?
I'm not sure what impact it's gonna make in my future applications if I withdraw or if I'm rejected this time.
Desperately need some advice plss ! Thanks
Hi Sarah,
Just wondering how did you fair out with your application after.
I am in the exact same situation and i am at my wits end as to what to do.
I got a letter from the case officer today saying i had over claimed on my 189 visa expression of interest. I got 65 points but I made a mistake by claiming 5 points for Australian study requirements, which would have left me with 60 points.
I'm really worried now as to what to do, whether to withdraw my application prior to the grant being decided (and if so will i be refunded my fee) or whether i leave the application and let the grant be decided (if its refused will I be able to reapply again or will this refusal affect future applications)
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank You
Damien

Thank you all for above discussions and all the kind advice when I was in panic.
I managed to speak to my case officer a few days later and explained the situation. He acknowledged my concern I wasn't in any intention to give false information and explained that was the reason he emailed me and gave me a chance to withdraw the application if I want to. Since my application was accepted based on 65points rule, so it's very likely to be rejected if I went on with that application. Plus it may come with a clause that will stop me from reapplying visa in the next 2 years.
I was given 2 more weeks to think ( with the hint how to withdraw the application ), so I decided to withdraw my application a week later. I was then given a chance to appeal for refund of application fees by writing an official letter to him.
To cut the story short, I managed to get full refund of 3060$ in 2 weeks time. My application was cancelled straight away and I was able to resubmit EOI the next day. I have just been granted Permanent Residency ( state sponsor - 190 ) in Early January with the 2nd invitation which came within 1 month after cancelling 1st application.
I'm so grateful for all the responses here in the forum when I wasnt sure what to do. If anyone wants more information on it, just send me a text.
Wish you all good luck on your application
Sarah

Hi Damien,
I totally understand your concern as I was exactly in the same situation. Not sure if you can see my previous post this morning ( I'm quite new to this forum ), but I talked to Case officer and explained what happened.
Unfortunately with the new online scoring system, there has been quite a few incidents as such. But I was told that most likely we wont be granted the visa, as the application was made on 65 points. If we cant prove that 65 points, then we fail to meet the regulation of immigration law for that invitation.
I once thought to keep going with the application and see what happens. Then I realised that my application could be rejected, I could lose all the 3060$ and in the worst scenerio , as we provided false information to DIAC they can ban us from further PR application for a period of time ( but it would depend on individual application )
So I decided to withdraw the application, without realising I could ask for refund. But I was advised by my case officer to write a letter to Immigration explaining I made a mistake on this application and claimed extra 5 points etc etc and that I would like to withdraw it, and ask for kind consideration of refund. Well luckily I got full refund in 2 weeks.
I was also able to resubmit EOI on the same day. This time, I decided to take state sponsership. I made another application in mid-december and now I have been granted with 190 visa for permanent residency in early January.
I would advise you to talk to your case officer ( as all the senior member in this forum advised me ), or atleast tried to get contact via email and see what he/she thinks.
Goodluck with your application and msg me anytime if you want further info.
Sarah

Hi All,

Need your suggestion on my situation. When I had lodged the application on 28th Apr I was 32 and my points were 65 but now after 14th Jun'13 I am 33 so lost 5 points. But as per my understanding when I lodged the application i was eligible for those 5 points as I was 32 and also at the time of medical as well on 4th Jun'13 i was 32. i am waiting for my Visa grant hoping that they will not include this elapse time to calculate the points and points will be calculated as per the date when the case was lodged i.e. 28th Apr'13. Please suggest if this situation can cause any issues.

Thanks and Regards,
Surinder.

Hi Sarah 84, that was great that you managed to talk to your CO. I am in a similar situation, however could not get to talk to my CO. After being put on hold a few times without any luck we communicated via email instead - my CO wasn't as nice as yours, she kept conversation short and always referring to the regulation.

What reason(s) did you put in the appeal for refund / refund request, please? Honest mistake? I did submit another EOI, this time with correct answers, if only the immigration provided someone to screen the EOI or eVisa application, I think this would save everybody time and money...

Dear all,
I have applied for 189 visa and was rejected on the grounds that I didnot qualify for the 5 points that I claimed for the partner (without his general registration),now I want to resubmit an EOI as there was no indication that there was any bar to resubmitting an EOI,will there be any problem in a new EOI as I now have the required points without claiming partner points.A reply would be highly appreciated.
