Chances of NSW 190 Invite

NSW will be updating the ANZSCO availability for each code regularly to these status:

  • Low – You would need the highest points in your ANZSCO code to get an invite.
  • Medium – You can expect an invite with a wait of 4-5 months.

  • Limited – Invites are sent occasionally.
  • Closed – No more invites to be sent in current fiscal year
