190 doubts

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to see if I can mitigate some of my doubts...

I started recently my 190 application through my lawyer. Just submitted my skill assessment application, hopefully I will have a positive response in 3 months.

I am going for Newspaper or Periodical Editor 2124-12 and I plan to submit my EOI for ACT as soon as I get my positive skill assessment response.

My main question concerns the fact that I have 55+5 points.
I have read around that having only 60 points may be an issue or may take considerably longer.

Is that true, and is it true for every state or are there any local differences? Does it depend on the position you are applying for?

I could try to get more points as for my Ielts I had 8.5 on average but writing was only 7 (the only one under 8 that I got).

I am planning to move back (I have lived in Australia before) as soon as my EOI is done and then apply from inside the country.

I hope I explained my situation clearly, I am still wrapping my head around all the different aspects of the application

Thanks for your help!

Yes, it is true. The only State/Territory sponsoring your occupation is the ACT. I think it does depend on the position you are applying for. For really popular occupations you need high points.
