Hi,
I have applied my 190 visa on 27th August, 2013. Now its already 2 weeks but haven't been contacted by an CO. Most of my friends had been contacted by a CO within a week. I'm worrying now.
Moreover, I applied together with my wife. We married just a week before submitting my application. I showed evidences that we had been in a relationship for 6years.
My question is if the CO doesn't believe our married, will it affect on my 190 visa?

Please help.

Thank you

Hi Zaw005 -

It is not uncommon for several weeks to go by before being contacted by DIAC - I would not be too concerned. After all, many partner visa applicants wait months before being assigned a case officer.

If the case officer does not believe your marriage is genuine, typically you will be asked to submit further evidence about your relationship, then a decision will be made by the case officer. Generally if the case officer does not believe a marriage is genuine, the secondary applicant (your wife, I assume) is the one who may not be granted a visa, since her application for a visa is based on the marriage to you. If you are asked for further relationship evidence, I would take that request very seriously - a good way to deal with that in advance would be to keep collecting relationship evidence starting now - joint bank account statements, joint purchases, more relationship photos, etc to have a supply of relationship evidence ready to go in case you're asked.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mgalal -

IELTS and skills assessment must be complete before time of invitation. Some people gamble and put in their EOI, hoping to get IELTS and a skills assessment done by the time they are invited, but this is a very risky strategy and not one we recommend. Far better to complete IELTS and skills assessment, then lodge your EOI.

Best,

Mark Northam

Dear Mark,
How is subclass 190 processed for the age points? Is it counted based on same category as subclass 189? or according to the state point score rules.

Hi Moh -

There is only one set of points test rules for skilled visas - it's the DIBP (formerly DIAC) rules. Rarely does a state add additional age regulations for their sponsorship rules, but they can and do add higher IELTS requirements, minimum years of experience requirements, job offer requirements, etc for certain occupations.

So your point score for your age is what is dictated by the DIBP skilled points test rules regardless of any state you might apply to for sponsorship.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks Mark,

Then if i applied under subclass 190. The same point score as subclass 189 applies. Does subclass 190 give any additional points on the score?
i want to know if there is a difference in the point score or the benefit of aoplying under subclass 190 rather than subclass 189.

highly appreciate your support.

Moh.

Hi Moh -

Suggest you very carefully investigate both visas if you're thinking of applying - it's not a simple/easy decision in most cases, and if you're going for the 190 you need to be aware of all the state sponsorship requirements like essays about why you want to live there and that sort of thing.

In terms of points 60 points are required to lodge an Expression of Interest to await an invitation for a subclass 189 visa. Higher points scores would tend to get you an invitation sooner. Lower points scores (ie, 60) could mean a delay in an invitation, or no invitation depending on how many places are available and how many people are in the pool for your occupation with higher scores or the same score as you but a previous EOI effective date.

The 190 visa requires 55 points and an approved state sponsorship which provides an additional 5 points and causes DIBP to generate an invitation to apply for the 190 visa.

Best,

Mark Northam

Got your point mark...the only reason i think of applying for subclass 190 is the 55 point score plus the 5 points and my occupation is highly available. Also the IELTS requirement for subclasd 190 south australia for my occupation is 6.5 each band. So i think that will give me more chance to be invited for visa application.
