A question regarding processing of 189 EOI post-covid.

Hi experts,

I am currently on a 485 Graduate Work Visa. I have recently lodged an EOI for my 189 visa under the skilled occupation of ICT Business Analyst. I am aware that priority is being given to onshore applicants and critical occupations as of now.

Now my question is if I were to exit the country after my 485 visa ends, will my EOI still be given priority as I would no longer be in the country. To be more specific, does the immigration distinguish between the EOI from onshores and offshores when giving invites for 189.

If the covid restrictions are not lifted before you are invited, it might pay you to lodge an onshore visa application to keep you onshore.
