Chance of invite in 2020 for ANZSCO code 261111 - ICT Business Analyst

@Anil.Gupta Hi Anil, I submitted my. EOI in Jan’20 for ICT Business Analyst for 180 at 80 points & 190 NSW at 85 points.

I am working as a Business Analyst since 1.3 years in NSW. What are the chances of getting an invite?

Hi @sahib and @tanvipul

Chances of invite are good with 85 points and low with 80 points as per current trend.

I do not have any estimate with respect to time though. It all depends on Australia immigration as they chance the number invites almost every other month.

Hi @Anil.Gupta, I have updated my EOI to 85/90 points on 11th March 2020. As per the current trends what should be my expectation on the invite?

Hi Anil
I have submitted two EOI with 90 points one is with ICT Business Analyst with D.O.E is 17/03/2020. and second one with Software and application programmer nec. 261399 d.o.e is 03/04/2020. I also submitted two EO1 with 105 points for 491 family sponsored with above occupations. I just want to take your advise will I get the 189 invitation in this round or not.


Karanbir Singh

You have good chance of invitation with 90 points.

Now you have 90 points for Business Analyst ? if they will give 1500 invitations then u ll get ur invitation.

Are there any realist expectations to receive an invite for business analyst with 85 pts for 190 visa (offshore) for NSW and VIC especially based on the current situation related to COVID - 19 which MAY result in slow processing or not giving invites till the situation is under control. MY DOE is 23rd Mar’20. Also, in how many months should I expect an invite?.

Dear Anil & experts,

Thanks for your efforts in clarifying forum queries.

I have lodged my EOI for 189 (85 points) and 190 (NSW 90 points) on 14th Apr 20 under 261111.
English: Superior & skills assessment : 15points.

My questions are:

a) The recent trend shows a 90point cut off - do you think, I have a realistic chance in this year to get an invite with my scores above under 189?

b) I have read that NSW doesn’t roll out invite if we don’t have a NSW experience - do you agree to this view that NSW doesn’t roll out at all for non-NSW experience candidates?

c) If NSW is a no - then do you suggest I give it a shot for Victoria - which can give a fair chance?

Thank you in advance.


Hi @Pradeeps

NSW has officially declared for some occupation codes that they won’t invite until the person has NSW experience and is currently living in NSW.

Chances are fair for 85 points but nothing can be said as points requirements are not coming down from 90.

Do apply with all states to increase your chances.

Thank you @Anil.Gupta… Am an offshore applicant with 95points (by May2020). Also have 15 points for skill assessment and 20points for English assessment. I’ll perhaps lose out on points for age by next year April21.

Do you see a chance of me getting an invite from Victoria during 2020 with 95 points given ongoing issues - Your take on my case please?

Hi guys,
I have applied for ICT Business Analyst for Victoria under 190 with 80 points.
ACS deducted a lot of work experience from my total of 7 and considered only 3 years
I wanted to know if Victoria state nomination will consider my overall work experience of 7 years [ or ACS work ex of 3 years]
I read somewhere that Victoria needs 5 years workex to consider for state nomination.

Hi @Anil.Gupta ,

  1. I have 90 points for ICT business analyst 261111 under 189 and 95 for 190NSW marketing specialist category, the availability for this stream is showing LOW with no additional criteria as of now for NSW, this changed from Medium in July 2019 to Low as of now. Which option would have higher chance of PR?

  2. Can I apply for both of this assessment and EOI ?

Please let me know your inputs

Thanks you

HI @Anil.Gupta, Do you think marketing specialist would have a better chance compare to BA? Or should we file two EOI?

You have to decide it yourself based on the points that got an invite in last round.

Thank you @Anil.Gupta for your response, I am not able to find invite cut off from NSW, Is there any possible way to find it, really appreciate your help, thank you

There is no way to find out. States do not share their invite data publicly.

But, usually, the points remain same or above as you would see for 189.

Hi Anil,

I’m in the US and I’ll be here mostly until the end of 2021.

I’m 31 yrs old and I was seeing if I can claim 10 pts for single status and also I’m showing 3.5 years work experience. Would I be eligible for 5 pts for this ?

I’m looking at 85 points totally with all the above combined for ICT Business Analyst 261111.

What are my chances for the invite if I want to move to AU by end of 2021.


Hi @Trilok_Murthy

Help yourself:


My spouse has the same situation , he has to choose between marketing specialist or Business analyst. Were you able to make any research around this . Any insights that you can share as to which one has a better chance.

Thank you

HI anil,
I have just completed my study in master of information system from VIC Australia. Now I am clueless how to go about PR like should I stay here in VIC or move to some regional state. I do have 28 months of L3 technical support experience back in INDIA. I know I have to apply for TR first but confused as for now the points tally for ICT business analyst is 90 min. and by the time I will get there It might get to 100 so no options then. This thing is eating my brain please help.
