261313 - Chances of invite for 189 in 2020 based on the latest status

Hi @Anil.Gupta,

I have submitted an EOI at 85 points for 189 in July 2019 and at 90 points for VIC and NSW. No luck yet.
I feel NSW has put a criteria that they need 1 year professional experience in 190, but what about VIC ?..any chances of getting an invite from VIC at 90 points? …And with 85 points do I stand a chance to get invited under 189 ? …Please advise.

Hi @Rohit_Deshpande

Chance of invite is good with 90 points. I can’t say when though.

Thanks Anil, will hope for the best :slightly_smiling_face:

Hello @Anil.Gupta ,

Looking at the Jan 2020 invitation round, 1000 candidates were invited (189) and the min score was 90.
Any idea how many 189 visas are left for this year and any predictions what might be the lowest scores going forward ?
Also, any news on NSW (190) will be helpful too.


Hi @sumit

There is no guarantee of how many invites will be sent in next draw. Australia immigration has been changing it every month. Nobody knows the criteria.

I have 80 points for 189. This includes spouse points for PTE. But I have a problem - In october I will lose my age points. Should I make effort to get 5 more spouse point through ACS? or can i expect my eoi to get picked up before that? I submitted in Nov 2019.


Hi @Topgun

You should make an effort to get 5 more points.

hi Anil,
Job code:261313(software engineer)

Hi @priyankaAgawal987

As per current trend, chances of invite with 75 points are low.

Hi Raspreet,

I just wanted to check with you to see if you received the invitation. I am currently in the queue with 75/80( 261312) waiting since Nov-2019. It will be of great help if you could update the status in the forum, when you receive the invitation.

Thank you kindly in advance.

Hi @Anil.Gupta For (261313) is there any Region or State where we can apply EOI for 491 Visa with out a offer of employment…

Hello Raj,

Did you check for QLD state ? It was open for 491 without any job offer. Not sure now !

Not yet dear. Waiting

@Anil, I have 80 points in 189 and 85 in 190 for victoria in ANZSCO code 261313 could you please suggest what are the chances of our invite as my EOI submitted in December 2019

Hi @amit.enggg

Chances are low for an invite with 80/85 invites as per current trend.

I am hopeful that point requirement will come down in near future as many people are waiting at 80 point EOI.

Hi @Anil.Gupta Thank you so much for your reply!
Could you please tell about waiting time for an invite on 80 point in visa 189 for 261313(software engineer) or is there any chance that we got invite before our EOI will expire DOE DEC2019 while the PTE score was from Sept 2019

Hi @amit.enggg

I do not know the estimated time as the invite points change every month.
