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
The minimum requirement of points is only 60 points for visa 189.. You can find this info by googling 'visa 189 diac' - maybe you could send your CO the link.. did they deduct some of your points?

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
Hey Sarah84,

I've lodged an application for visa 190 a couple of days ago, and I'd appreciate it if you could reply on here or PM me about your journey

Hi Sarah,

I am in a similar situation as yours.

Problem is that the case officer has told us to get in touch with immigration. I have not been able to get in touch with immigration or the Case officer as there is a very long hold. Do you have any email id which you had written to ..which pertains to immigration.

ANy help would be highly appreciated.

Good luck
Dear Sarah
thank you for all your responces here, it helps those who are in trouble. I made a mistake in EOI - put wrong starting dates of my employment which is not related to my occupation and i do not claim any points for it.
I wonder what options i have in your opinion? I received an invitation already and if I just wait for my invitation to lapse I will miss two rounds and will have only one chance to be invited and then will have to leave the country....:'(
