EOI question

Hello All! Question on submitting an EOI:

I received the email today concerning my skills assessment. AITSL requested my university diploma, after I submitted my skills assessment at the beginning of April. I finally got a new diploma from my university and mailed the certified copy to AITSL last week. Today, I received the confirmation email from AITSL stating: "Your assessment will be completed within 10 weeks from the date of this email."

It has been 10 weeks already, but now I'm afraid they reset the clock on the assessment. I'm not worried about passing my skills assessment, only that they may take yet another 10 weeks to finish it. That will put me at September 5th. I need to apply for my 189 by September 17th, or will have to leave, as that's my 3 month window on my ETA. Looks like the last round of invitations that I could possibly get an invite would be September 14th. That is really pushing it!

So, can I submit my EOI earlier, before I receive my skills assessment in the mail (if they decide to take another 10 weeks)? I do not know how long it will take to receive an invitation to apply for a 189 visa as a Secondary Teacher and I've seen some people waiting a month or so for an invitation (engineers, etc.). Thoughts?

Backup plan: To apply for partner visa, instead of skilled visa. But obviously prefer the skilled visa.

Nevermind! I found the answer to my question. According to the immi site:

"Unless otherwise stated these requirements must be met at the time you were invited to apply for this visa."

So, I will have to wait until I get my skills assessment before I can apply. I contacted AITSL and they said that yes, they can take up to an additional 10 weeks for my skills assessment, since they wanted a copy of my bachelor's diploma. The transcripts and diploma supplement, all of which stated that I received a bachelor's degree, weren't enough evidence that I have a bachelor's degree.

Sigh. So, if it takes that long to get my assessment, that means I'll only have one chance to get an invitation for the visa, correct? As they only issue invitations twice a month?

Guess I better start getting all of my evidence together for a partner visa, just in case.
