189 or 190?

Hi members,

I can't decide to apply for 189 or 190 visa. I got 65 points for the 189 visa and 70 points include 5 points from sponsor state for the 190 visa.
I heard to get an invitation it is difficult and only people that have a high score would get an invitation faster.
So now I am thinking to apply for the 190 visa because the chance is higher with 70 points, isn't it?

What are your experiences and recommendations?

Hi Depende -

Your information is accurate - if you can find a state that is sponsoring your occupation and you meet any additional requirements imposed by the state (for some occupations they require higher IELTS score and/or local work or education experience in the state), the 190 visa can be a good choice as if you're approved for the sponsorship, an invitation to apply for the visa is automatically generated by DIAC.

The other alternative is to wait to see if you are invited for the 189 visa where you don't need to go through the state sponsorship approval process. The advantage of this is that no state sponsorship application/cost is needed, and you're not obligated to live in that state for a period after you are granted the visa, however the disadvantage is that you don't know if/when you'll be invited since it depends on the number of people who submit EOI's with higher points score than you - and those EOI's can be submitted before or after yours is.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

I think you can do both. Your 65 score also have a great opportunity to be picked fast. I had only 60 points and I received invitation after four days from lodging the EOI. Good luck!

Hi Mark,


Thank you for your reply.

What do you think how long is the state sponsorship approval process? After they approved my application I will get an invitation? It is the chance bigger to get an invitation with 70 points by the 190 visa?

However, I have to wait until July because they don't accept new applications for my job as an ICT Business Analyst. The pool is already full!

Regards,
Depende

Hi -

The state sponsorship approval process generally takes up to 2 months or so depending on the state. But if you get approved by a state, you will get an application (unless they put you on a "state waiting list", a rather new concept that may delay things).

The more points the better with ALL skilled visas that are points tested.

Best,

Mark Northam

When I submitted my EOI I selected both...but I didn't actively seek state sponsorship and luckily I got 189 invitation few days after. So i think no harm of selecting both at first and wait for one round of invitation and then maybe proceed with looking for state to sponsor you.
