Chance of invite for ANZSCO code 262112 - ICT Security Specialist

Hi Anil,

Could you please help me know the current processing time for ANZSCO code 262112 for ICT Security Specialist.
Points 70.

You can expect invite for 262112 ICT Security Specialist with 70 points within 2-3 months of filing Australia EOI.

Hi Anil,

Adding to the same question asked, can we expect invite in 2-3 months for “262112 - ICT Security Specialist” with 70 points, even after new immigration planning, wherein they will be reducing the 189 numbers ?

No, the chances of invite will reduce drastically with new reduced 189 quota starting July 2019, if it is implemented.

I suggest to try and increase points to 75 for a realistic chance of invite in 189.

Thanks Anil,

Is this implementation is confirmed or may change after election ? Any chance for revert it back to original numbers ?

The new 189 quota implementation is not confirmed yet.

It may change after election if a new party comes to power.

Hi Anil,
Adding to the above, my EOI was filed for 262112 ICT Security Specialist on April 4th 2019 for 189 with 70 points and on April 3rd 2019 for 190 NSW with 75 points. Any idea, when can I expect an invite in the current scenario?

I understand for State Sponsorship, we cannot predict, right?

The chances are low for a 189 invite with 70 points. It may improve in July 2019 based on how many applications are pending in 262112 ICT Security Specialist.

It is difficult to say anything about state invites as they do not share any data.

Hmm :frowning:
That doesn’t look good then… does it? :slight_smile:
But how long do you think a non pro rata category takes normally for a PR grant?

Hi Anil - I have 70 points with regional sponsor…If I submit EOI in next 20 days… how much time it will take to get invite for 70 points… Do you see a chance to get invite with 65 points for this skill set if I apply now… I will be hitting 40 yrs in 45 days…


The chances of invite are very low with 65 points for 262112.

Thanks for your response Anil… Will I stand a chance for a state sponsor with 70 points?

Will I stand a chance for getting invite for 262112 skillset
with 70 points with state sponsor. your views pls.

If the chances are low for 189, the 190 chances are low too as 190 invite criteria is stricter than 189.

Ok Anil… I thought there may be a possibility as the skill set have limited people when compared to other skill set.

The 190 invites are sent based on the demand in the state. But, there is no data to support or estimate about when the invite will be sent.

Hi Anil - One more query. I’m turning 40 in 33 days…With my English score 10 points, My total score is 65 points. If I file now with 65 points before me turning 40 & If I get higher marks later after me turning 40 yrs, will I be able to amend my English score to get benefit of 10 more marks?..Or If I get 20 points in english then it will take my score to 75… DO I need to file the request again before me turning 40 yrs considering that I have already filed…

Sorry if my query is confusing…
