We have received 190 nomination from SA in Oct 2019 & submitted the complete visa application on Immigov on Dec 12, 2019. Because of Covid the offshore grants are slowed, and we have not yet received the Visa grant.
I wanted to seek your guidance on 3 points:
- I will be turning 40 in 3 months time, shall I make further efforts to apply for 491 incase it is expected that 491 visas will be granted faster?
- I work for a multinational company in UK and they are willing to offer me a position in Australia. Shall I ask them to start the 186 process. Will it be of any benefit in terms of increasing chances of getting visa grant faster than my current situation?
- Is there any benefit to increase my score for other EOIs by clearing NAATI and then increase the chance for getting 189 or 491 nomination.
Because of the long wait and uncertainty, I am wondering shall I do further efforts so that I don’t regret later that I wish if I would have tried something in parallel.
Thank you in advance for your valuable guidance and I look forward to hear back from you.
