Australia PR processing time – 189 Visa

189 Skilled – Independent Points-tested visa is taking 3 to 11 months to receive PR grant after you have submitted your application.

You will either get a CO (case officer) contact query within 3 months or get a PR grant at the end of 3 months after you lodged your 189 invitation.

Once you get a CO contact, your application will be on hold until you submit the requested documents. Once documents are uploaded, your application is re-submitted at the front of the queue and can take another 3 months to receive final ‘GRANT’ of 189 Visa.

Australia PR processing time – 190 Visa

190 Skilled – State nominated points-tested visa is taking 2.5 to 8 months to receive PR grant after you have submitted your application.

You will either get a CO (case officer) contact query within 2.5 months or get a PR grant at the end of 2.5 months after you lodged your 189 invitation.

Once you get a CO contact, your application will be on hold until you submit the requested documents. Once documents are uploaded, your application is re-submitted at the front of the queue and can take another 2.5 months to receive final ‘GRANT’ of 190 Visa.

Australia PR Invitation Time

The processing time mentioned above is only for applications that have been submitted after receiving the SkillSelect EOIinvitation to apply‘.

Invitation to apply is currently given to people, with a monthly draw (lottery), with the highest points in their job occupation category.

The waiting time to get an invitation could vary from 1 month to up to 12 months at this time for some occupations.
Example, Software Engineer with 70 points can expect to wait more than 6 months to receive 189 visa invite.

You cannot apply for Australia Permanent residency (PR) until you receive a formal invitation.

    We lodged our PR application for 189 VISA on October 26th 2018 for 261313 from onshore. CO had contacted us for the PTE score of my spouse on 15th Jan 2019, which the consultancy guy didn’t upload. We uploaded on the same day (15th Jan 2019). We didn’t get any response till now. When can we expect the PR grant?

    Thanks.

    Hi Anil,

    I updated my application on 11 April 2019 for Electrical Engineer 233311 after adding spouse points. My updated scores are 75 points on 189 and 80 points on 190 category. No invitation sent for other Engineering occupation in April draw. Please suggest from your experience about the chances of getting invited in May draw.

      Chances are good for an invite in May but the situation might change if the total number of invites are lowered as they did in April 2019.

    Hello Sir,

    I have lodged my application on 5th March 2019 for ICT Business Analyst at 189 with 70 points, 190 with 80 points and 489 with 75 points, can you please suggest when shall I expect to get invitation from any of the States of Australia?

    Thanks Neha


    • Anil Gupta

      The chances of an invite with 70 points are low for Business Analyst at this time.
      There is a wait of about 7 months for 70 point EOI.

      The states also usually invite the people with highest points in their job code.

    Hi Anil,

    I lodged my application for 189 with 75 points (including points for spouse) and 190 with 80 points for ANZSCO 261313. My date of effect is 26th Feb 2019. I haven’t got any invitation for neither 189 in April 2019 draw until today. Is there any possibility of getting an invitation this month or should I wait for May 2019 draw?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 11 Apr, 19 at 2:05 pm

      I think only people with 80+ points have got the invite in April 2019 draw.

      You may get an invite in May 2019 draw.

    Hi,
    I have recently done my health check on 25 March, 2019 for 190 (NSW) – 75 Points.- 261312

    As you told it can take 2.5 months to receive final ‘GRANT’, however, I was viewing a popular forum at migrationdesk com where it says people getting average timeline of Grant after atleast 5-6 months or even a year for 190. I don’t have any complexity in case and am only the main applicant.

    Can you give any idea of how long it takes? Is the above could be true?

    Thanks in advance.

      I have shared my analysis and Australia PR processing time data based on what i have heard on various forums and whatsapp group.

      I cannot comment on what you are seeing on other forums. You should ask them about it.
