This page is contains ongoing updates on the 190 nominations issued by NSW and other States.


*UPDATE*

The State Nomination figures for April 2018 below, show that the majority of places went to NSW and Vic.

So far, for the 2017/18 migration year (ends June 30), over 8 thousand nominations have been issued. 3519 nominations for regional areas have been issued so far this year. In comparison with the 190 nominations, this is quite a large number too. If you are willing to work and live in a regional area, perhaps the 489 visa may suit you better than the 190 visa.

*UPDATE*

The NSW Department of Industry has advised the MIA that they have recently begun issuing invitations for the 190 State Nomination visa.  While the rate of nominations since July has been limited, NSW anticipates nominating another 4,000 skilled candidates for the 190 visa in 2015-16 with a ramp up of invitations in the coming months.  The MIA will continue to liaise with NSW Department of Industry and provide further updates on the 190 nominations program when available.

Further information about visa options for migration to NSW is available on the NSW Department of Industry website.

    Hi Li,

    This is Srinivas applied for EOI for NSW under 190 as a software engineer. Could you please update the intakes for the year 2015-16 from NSW.

      Dear Eugene,
      We have applied for EOI on October 21, 2015 with 60 points (including 5 point from state) under occupation “Internal Auditor” for sub class visa 190 and state chosen is NSW. Overall PTEA score was 74. Skilled employment is in the above mentioned occupation for more than 10 years, with last 6 years in Director level position. Please advise the possibility of receiving invitation and if so, approximate time duration. As you must be aware, occupation ceiling for “Internal Auditor” of 1000 under subclass 189 has already reached for 2015-16. Will this have any impact for invitation under 190?

        • Naveen

          Hi chaitali.. Did you get invite ?. If yes the how many months later?

          Thank you

        • vijesh

          Dear Eugene,

          I have applied for NSW state sponsorship(190) on Feb 2017. How long it will take for receiving a positive response. Whether there is any chance.

          • Susan

            Hi Vijesh, have you received invite?

        • Pallavi Gupta

          Hi Eugene,

        Thanks..

  2. RAKHI MENON

    Hello

    I am Rakhi,28 yr(Post graduate Nurse)Registered Nurse from India with a 2 yr work experience in India.Took a bridging course and registered with AHPRA,(IELTS 7 in all subtests ) with no work experience in Austrailia , about to file my EOI in the coming April/May 2016 for 190 visa state sponsered.

    AGE: 30 PTS
    EDUCATION :15 PTS
    WORK EXP : 0 PTS
    ENGLISH :10 PTS
    STATE SPON :5 PTS

    just a few queries in moving forward

    1) Going by the current scenario; me having 60 points (included state sponsored 5 points). How long should i wait for the EOI to be accepted and then nomination(NSW state sponsorship and invitation ?

    5) How many invites do they usually give away for nurses ? Is it done on a monthly basis, So what is the chance of me getting an invitation with a minimum of 60 points?

    2) However late in picking up EOI could we presume somehow we will get an acceptance (even if delayed) ?

    3) Is it really true that 457 visa is non-existent in Australia for nurses , however qualified you are? and eventually should come through 189/190 visa after registration with AHPRA?

    4) about 190- which state is easier to get one quick for nurses? juat wondering if NT/WA would be better than NSW, VIC, SA (I have only 2 yr work experience as a registerd nurse)

    5)What exactly is an occupational ceiling ? Is it applicable for 190 visa for registered nurses currently (2015). Does it carry over to next fine year?

    6)Please shed some light on this as it is difficult to find an expert.

    7)Is 60 points a risk for getting a 190 visa?

    8)Is there occupational ceiling planned for registered nurses in each state in each year? will the EOI be carried over to the next year when the invitations has reached its ceiling of that particular year?

    9)How many invitations do they usually give away nurses in a state sponsered? say NSW ?Is it done on a monthly basis?

    10)What is the validity of the IELTS result and applying for a 190 visa (Does it counts validity at the time of appying EOI or validity of the results at the time we receive the invitation)

    11) Can my patner in any way help in gaining points to maximise my points in a 190 visa by sitting an english test, even though his profession doesnot belong to a SOL or CSOL list of that particular state or all the three criteria need to be met in Patner skills?

    12) When exactly is the apt time to apply for an EOI in a year?

    13) Checklist of documents to be kept during a 190 visa application including the spouse and child aged 4yrs?
    EXPECTING A REPLY SOON

    • It is not a matter of Chance. It is a matter of time, and priority paired with good preparation, organisation and attention to detail.

    • mudassir

      Mr.Abhishek did you get the invitation of EOI?????????

        Hello Abhishek, May you share your EOI Invite date

  7. sandeep

    hi i want to know that whether medical lab scientists are in demand for 190 visa or not as i have got 60 points .

  8. simran

    IS 4000 Seats of NSW Nomination(190 visa ) include 489 visa too ?
    It already shows total number of recieved nomination 4062 ?

    • The 4000 places are for the 190 only.

  9. Sachin

    Hi Eugene Liu,

    I have applied for 190 visa under state sponsorship of NSW on 26th march 2016.

    Is there any upper limit on the number of people given entry in one lot?

    does it depend upon how fast i submit all my documents?

    Best regards,
    Sac

    • Invitations for State Sponsorship will depend on your EOI. You will then need to submit the proper documents to receive the nomination. Fast provision of those documents will allow for faster processing.

  10. nikhil chawla

    hi
    I applied for the 190 subclass for ICT Business analyst for NSW , PTE score : 71
    total points applied : 55 + 5(Work exp) + 5(SS)

    Want to know one thing , in EOI raised as per the oct 2015, total Experience is 35 months , i did not updated the same after that. I have received an invite on the basis of above points but experience is less than 3 years by 1 month, as i did not updated the EOI after that (i am in the same profile), so how to proceed with such a situation. As according to min 3 years will give 5 points for the experience.

    Please suggest what can i do in such a situation

    Thanks and regards
    Nikhil (+447440453793)

    • If your points do not match up, you will not be able to use your invite. You’ll have to submit and EOI again. This could have been prevented with proper planning and assessment before you put in the EOI.

  11. Anju Joy

    Hi Eugene,

    Thank you for taking the time and effort provide us with necessary details on the immigration process. I have applied for 190 subclass (NSW) for technical writer (consolidated list) . I have submitted my EOI in November 2016 with a score of 60. I recently (April) retook the PTE and now my overall EOI score is 70 + 5 SS. Do I stand a chance for an invite from NSW anytime soon?

    • That’s a solid score, well done. You probably won’t have long to wait.

    • Anju Joy

      Hi Eugene,

      It’s been 2 months already and I haven’t heard from NSW. I hear that the invites have been temporarily closed. Just to clear I am applying for the 190 in CSoL category. Anxious and waiting. Please update me with any useful information.

      Thank you one again for your time and valuable inputs.

      • It is up to NSW to decide on which occupations to prioritize, and which not to.

        • Pooja

          Hi Anju, I have also applied around a year back in the same occupation in NSW stream 2 with 65+5 points, and there is no sign of invite until now. Could you please let me know what’s your status?

    • No idea. I will need a lot more details than that.

  13. Pre

    Hi Eugene

    I submitted EOI on 16th April 2016 for Engineering Technologist for NSW state nomination with 60 points (including NSW nomination). Are people with just 60 points getting invite? And how can I check monthly result or graph from NSW showing who are getting invites?

      • Ashish

        I have 65 points as a electrical engineer with state sponsored and I summited my EOI at 28.11.2017. So when I get invitation from NSW state?

  14. Raghavendra

    Hi Eugene,

    I have applied for 190 Visa (NSW) as I scored overall 60 points and submitted my EOI on 23rd Jan 2016. Can you please let me know when can I expect reply from NSW ???

    Regards
    Raghavendra

    • Depends on the occupation. 60 points is also very low. I’ve known of 60 pointers who have waited over a year and still not receive an invite.

      • Raghavendra

        My occupation is Software Engineer.

        • Raj

          Hi Eugene

          Want to know how long it can take??
          Thanks

  15. Sam Rosh

    Hi Eugene Liu,

    I have submitted my EOI as a Civil Engineer about two weeks ago. I claimed for 60 points(age 30 points, qualifications 15 points, Australian study requirements 5 points, local relevant experience 5 points) adding that my IELTS overall score is 8.0(L:8.5, R:9.0, W:6.5, S:7.5).
    May I ask what is your forecast(I understand this wouldn’t be accurate and depends on several factors) of the earliest time that I can expect invitation letter from Immigration Department?

    Thanks in advance.

    • 60 pointers will take some time. Is this for the 189 and not the 190? It’ll probably be a few months at least.

    • Charlotte

      hi Sam,

      did you get your PR now? How long did you have to wait for the invitation letter from immigration department ? Did you apply for the 190?

      I’ve got 55 points now and thinking of applying for the 190.

      thank you
      Charlotte

  16. Raghavendra

    Hi Eugene,

    I have applied for state sponsorship 190 Visa (NSW). I have submitted my EOI in the month of Jan 2016 and still I dint get any reply on this. Kindly let me know what could be the maximum time for the reply from state so that I can proceed further.
    Thanks !!

    Regards,
    Raghavendra

    • Submitting an EOI is not the same as applying for a visa. This is important to know. There is no way I will be able to predict the time to expect if I do not know more about your details.

  17. Rahme

    Hi,
    I applied NSW 190 visa on 22-Oct-2015. My point calculation:Age-30, Australian Masters-15, Australian study:5, Professional Year-05, NSW state nomination 05= total 60 points. Category: General Accountant, assessed by CPA.
    Is there any update for approving visa?

    • You will probably need more than that to get an invite in this occupation. Or will perhaps have to wait a long time.

  18. Pradeep Choudhary

    Hi Eugene,

    Just one question does every invitation gets nomination. If not what are the possible reason for not getting nomination.

    Regards
    Pradeep Choudhary

    • I assume you are asking about the 190 visa. The State chooses who to invite based on the occupations they need, as well as the competitiveness of the applicant. The EOI expires in 2 years. So it may be possible to never receive a nomination.

  19. Himanshu

    Hi, Eugenics liu.
    I applied for the 190 nsw ss visa for developer programmer. EOI submit on August 2015, total points 55+5 SS. I am waiting for invitation for very long time can you please clear me.
    Thanks

    • That’s because you only have 60 points for the 190 which is a low score. You’re also in an ICT occupation which is highly competitive and there is a cut off score in effect.

      • Neha

        Hi Eugene. My husband has applied for the job code of Management Consultant under subclass 190. His score is a competitive 65 *excluding the 5 points of state sponsorship, if nominated. On Feb 1, 2017, he sent the EOI to NSW. Can you please inform about the expected timeline consent for nomination, approval of nomination as well as VISA? Can you give a clearer picture regarding the timelines considering the ongoing applications (which you must be aware of)?? Thanks a lot in advance.

  20. Sophia

    Hi Eugene,

    Thank you for this wonderful article!
    I will be graduating my Nursing degree this July and am planning to apply for the NSW State Nomination Visa 190.
    However, I am hearing from other people that it is a risky choice to go with the visa 190 as it is up to the state to decide your approval not based on your points? What is your input for a newly registered nurse to apply for the visa 190. Here is a summary of my points:

    Age: 23yrs old (25 points)
    English: OET B grade (10 points)
    Educational Qualification: Bachelor Degree (15 points)
    Australian study qualification: one degree (5 points)
    Total = 55 points

    I am still hesitant whether to go with the NSW State Nomination Visa 190.
    I hope you can help :) Thanks!!

    • The 190 visa is also points based. If you are going to take advice about immigration, please only listen to MARA agents. There’s a lot of nonsense floating around. If you wish for me to have a look at your details and figure out what you should do, please order the eligibility assessment under “services”

      • Sophia

        Thanks Eugene!! I will indeed do the online consultation you guys provide to get more exact information! Thanks :)

        Hello Eugene,

        I’ve put in my EOI for 190(NSW) with 70 points overall along with SS. My occupation is ICT Support Engineer. Here is my break up below
        Age: 25
        Education: 15

        English: 10
        State nomination: 05
        Total: 70

        How soon can I expect the invite…Please advise.

        • That’s a good score. Shouldn’t be too long.

          • Simar Toor

            Hi Harish

            Did you get the NSW invite yet? If yes how long did it take? I am under the same point score but applied for general accountant. Its been 3 months since I submitted my EOI at 70 (65+5SS). I have not received anything yet.

        • Neha

          Hi Harish. My husband has the same score as you under subclass 190. He has just submitted EOI for NSW. Can you please let me know what were the timelines of you EOI reply, nomination etc? Have you been granted VISA already or still waiting? Please update for clarity.
          Thanks

    I have applied for 190 Visa as system analyst and submitted eoi with 65 points on April 17, 2016. when can i expect initial invitation from nsw and it would be great if you can let me know.

    • The cutoff for your occupation is 70 points. You won’t be hearing anything until the cutoff is reduced to 65, and the invites have worked through the queue.

    Hi Eugene,

    I have applied for state sponsorship visa with overall 60 points ( 55 (work experience)+ 5(SS)) as a Software Engineer. I have submitted my EOI in January 2016.
    Kindly let me know by any chance can I get 190 visa ??

    Regards,
    Raghavendra

    • As can be seen by the number of comments made on this site alone, there are an increasing number of Software Engineer applicants with minimum points of 60. It looks like many are applying in this occupation now as the ICT occupations are too hard. It looks like there will be quite a wait for an invite within this occupation as well.

    Hi Eugene, I am studying nursing and about to finish it in next month and looking to apply for nsw 190 visa under Enrolled Nurse occupation. My query is that my student visa expires in Nov, 2016 and I know that the EOI will take more than that, so, would I able to get the bridging visa to remain in Australia while waiting for the outcome of 190 visa application?

    Thanks

    • Yes, if the visa application submitted is valid and while you’re still on the student visa. The bridging will only come into play after you have received an eoi and have made the application itself. Please read my ebook to understand about the bridging visa.

    My husband has applied for EOI in NSW with 60 points under Software Engineer. What areteh chances to get selected under 190 visa.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Minimum scores will most likely have to wait a long time. It is not a matter of chance.

    • I have no updates for you, that will come from the Skillselect system. Please note that an EOI is NOT the same as a visa application.

    • no updates. same principals apply, which I talk about in the other posts.

This is under 190 Sub class.

    • I do not think this occupation is highly competitive, but it is also not very high in demand.

    3. My points are 55+5 (sponser) . how much time approx this will take as per your experience.

    Regards

  33. Shilpa Rana

    Hi Eugene, I am a Registered Nurse in Australia. My total score is 55 , how much is possibility of getting invite from NSW if I submit EOI with 60 score (55+5).Please reply

    • Nurses shouldn’t have problems getting invites. However, most of the applications I have seen from Nurses usually have some complications when they attempt to diy. This is due to many not knowing how to get around the documentation needed.

  34. Sham

    Hi Eugene,
    Greetings !!
    I am 38 yrs and 11 months old.
    I have applied to EOI on 2nd Feb. 2016 to NSW under State Nomination(190 class). Almost 5 months.
    My points are 55+5(ss)=60.
    After reading all your comments, it seems chances of getting invitation for 190 are very slim.

    My wife is also in same profession as me.If I attach her profile to my application after doing ACS assessment, I can get 5 points and my tally will be 65.
    Considering my age, is it possible? What are changes? your thoughts on this please.

    Regards
    Sham

    • Hi Sham. Chances of getting an invite depend on many factors such as your occupation, points score, state you’re applying to, how much time you have to wait, etc. For some, a low score is ok because their occupation isn’t competitive and they are able to take their time while offshore. For others, it may not be possible. For my thoughts on your chances, please order an online eligibility assessment.

  35. Sham

    PS- I have applied to Software Engineering

    Hi Eugene,

    I have applied for state sponsorship 190 visa with overall 70 points ( 65 (work experience)+ 5(All States)) as ICT Support Engineer. My agent has submitted my EOI this month with ALL States.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hello,

    I have submitted EOI on 29th July 16 with a score of 70, Internal Auditor Profile VISA 190 and a score of 65, Internal Auditor Profile VISA 189. What are my chances of getting an invite. I understand its too early to ask however last year they had stopped sending invites due to occupation ceiling for Audit Profiles reaching 1000 in Sep 15. I am just curious about this year. On the DIBP Website it states 1413 out of which 55 were invited, they havent mentioned any cut off due to technical glitch there was a round on 3rd Aug 16 as well but the website isnt updated yet. Is 65 good enough as I am keen for 189 VISA. Or should I try to claim superior in English to claim 75 points for 189 VISA. Please advise.

    I got an invitation from WA for 489 on 21st July 2015 but didn’t want it so I let it expire. Then I waited for NSW 190 and I waited and waited. I was looking for something in my emails and I found an invitation from NSW on 15th Jan 2016! I am so distraught. Apparently if you receive 2 invitations on one EOI and don’t take it, then your EOI just lies idle and you won’t get any invitations. I didn’t even know I had received the invitation and unlike the WA invitation that showed in my EOI correspondence, NSW didn’t :-( Now my points have increased to 80 due to an additional 1.5 years of experience not assessed and I have submitted a new EOI today after withdrawing the old one. I wrote to NSW and nothing can be done. I just have to wait. One email! One email has cost me 10 months already. Any idea when they might be sending the next round of invitations?

    Hi Eugene,

    First of all thank you very much for taking time on replying our queries.

    I tried to find the answer everywhere for this question, I am an Accountant under visa 190, got 70 + 5 points including 5 points from spouse and just applied for EOI (given NSW as the state want to get nominated). However my husband’s nominated occupation is not in NSW occupation list, in this scenario does NSW omit the spouse 5 points when considering my case? or do they still consider me with my total number of points for this visa type ?

    Highly appreciate your valuable feedback. Thanks!

    Dinu

    • Hi Dinusha. Your partner just needs to have an occupation in the same skilled list as you. Either the SOL or the CSOL.

I am wondering does he have any chance for SS due to low availability of occupation? How long do we have to wait? And should he try to increase his points ?.thanks.

  90. Devvrath Singh

    Hi Eugene,

    I applied for NSW nomination for 190 visa under Chemical Engineer occupation dated 24.02.2016
    Total Points = 60
    Still waiting for nomination

    Could this delay be due to low points ?

    Any advice will be helpful

    Thanks in advance

    Dear Eugene,
    Thanks for taking the time to respond to this endless chain of questions.

    I have submitted my EOI for NSW (Organisation and Methods Analyst) on 24th Sep, 2016 with 70 points from India (+ve assessment from Vetasses). How much time does it take to get the invitation from NSW and then for the next steps (I know there is no standard time but just an approx). Do you see a possibility with my total score of 70?

    Regards,
    Prakash

    Hi Eugene,

    You have been so kind enough to answer most of the people queries. I have applied for sub class 190 with a Score of 65 including 5 points for state sponsorship to NSW and the category I have applied is for HR adviser. Please advice what could be my waiting period for the score I have got and what are the chances I may get an invite. I can change the score to 70 in February 2017 as I will additionally get 5 points on my work experience as per Vetasses.

    Thanks in Advance

    Regards

    Hi,
    For claiming a partner’s point, the spouse should take/score English test (PTE)? It that mandatory?
    Or can spouse show a letter from University? (English medium)

    Is there any financial proof to be shown for 190 visa?

    Thank you.

  99. Mash

    Hi, I applied for the 190 and 189 visas in april last year with 70 and 65 points respectively. I have also gained an additional 5 points this month due to my age making the scores 75 and 70 respectively. I have not received my EOI yet for any of the subclasses. I did however make some edits in my EOI in june last year after submitting it in april. Do you happen to have any idea what is going?

    Kind Regards,
    Quazi

    • Editing your eoi will reset your priority. Also I don’t know what occupation your applying for…. Depend on how many other applicants there are, and the quota for that occupation.

  100. Nishant

    Hi
    I want to apply for Australian PR soon.
    I would have 70 points if I apply for 190 and 65 for 189 on account of
    Age: 25 points
    English: 20 points
    Education: 15 (Masters from Australian University)
    Plus 5 as I meet the Australian study requirement.

    Do we get invited at 65 or 70 points (189 and 190 respectively)?

    • Yes, if you choose both the 190 and the 189 in your eoi.

  119. Satya Valluri

    Hi Eugene,
    I am Prakash.
    Its good to see your blog.
    I have a few doubts, which are below.

    I have submitted an EOI for subclass 189 on : 26/10/2016 with 60 points for code : 261313
    I have again submitted an EOI for subclass 190 NSW on : 28/11/2016 with 65 points for code : 261313

    I have got 5 more points for experience since : 8/04/2017
    So My EOi was automatically updated and Now i am having the below points.

    For subclass 189 (261313): 65 points.
    For subclass 190 NSW (261313): 70 points.

    I have found out from the skill set website that the “Invitations to date” are almost equal to the “Occupation Ceiling Value 2016-2017 ”

    So if i have to get an invite from the 189 EOI, it would be after July 1st,2017.
    What are the chances…?

    The other case is i have NSW 190 EOI application.
    With 70 points are my chances good of getting an invite here??
    Will NSW state update the invitation statistics anywhere??

    Thanks.

  122. Sithu

    Hi Eugene,
    I graduated as an Early childhood teacher from Melbourne last December (no work experience of teaching, only placements) and got the skill assessment done. I am trying to get IELTS each 8, but in the meantime, I am wondering whether I will be able to apply visa 190 from NSW state sponsorship. I have only 55 points. Is it possible? I heard first I have to get the NSW teacher registration, but I currently live in Melbourne, so getting NSW registration is not possible because it requires us to have a job over there. As I have done skill assessment, isn’t it enough or I have to do NSW teacher registration during 190 visa process.

    Thanks.

    Hi Eugene,

    I have submitted my eoi with 65 points (60+5 state NSW) on 10 January 2017 in ICT Computer Network Professional and also submitted EOI with 60 pionts in 189 category.
    How long would it take for me to get an invite. Please advice on the invitation chance in both the categories as its been more than 6 months waiting for invite.

    Please Advise.

    • The cut off points for ICT occupations is 70 points for the 189. So for the 190 visa, I would expect that the States are similarly inviting those who have around 70 points. This will vary depending on the demand and the number of spaces each State has left. You’re going to need to increase your point score.

  127. Suresh

    Hi Eugene,

    I have applied for EOI Subclass 190 (NSW) for ICT Business Analyst/System Analyst on 30th November 2016. I have 60 points.

    I really worried since its been over 6 months now.

    Wondering how long will i have to wait for the invite.Usually the waiting period for 60 pointers are 8–10 months.

    Anyone with 60 pointers getting invites?

    Thanks

    • The cutoff for ICT is 70 points for the 189 visa. 60 points for state sponsorship is the minimum and even in a non competitive occupation, it isn’t a good score. Look at improving your points.

I was wondering what my chances of getting an invite are for either one of those two or if I should wait and give my ielts again. I was also wondering if my spouses career (dentistry) might add to my points.

    Greetings!

    EOI with 65 points (60+5 state NSW / Victoria) in 190 category and with 60 points in 189 category in occupation of Mechanical Engineer ( ANZSCO Code 233512). I have only two questions:-

    1. How good is the probability for a Mechanical Engineer with above score w.r.t. current competition in Australia for Mechanical Engineer?
    2. What is the Lead time to get an invitation for above case for Mechanical Engineer? As per my knowledge it is three months maximum for above case for Mechanical Engineer. Am I right, Sir?

    Please Advise.

    Thanks in advance
    Gurmeet Singh

    • Mechanical engineering is also now under the prorata system. 75 points cutoff. 60+5 points is a rather low score and there is a huge pool. I wouldn’t realistically expect an invite unless you can up your score.

    Hi Eugene,
    I couldn’t find any clue about minimum point for getting invitation on External audit or General Accounting for NSW. I know that it is very competitive applying for sponsorship of NSW for external audit and General Accounting. According to 20 September 2017 round results, 189 visa invitations for internal auditors sent to 75 points holders. So, should I expect NSW will give sponsorship for minimum 75 points holders or less?

    Thank you very much,
    Regards,

    Dervis

    • So far for Accountants: quota ceiling is 4785. 2723 invitations have been given out as of 9 May 2018.
      The cutoff for Accountants and Auditors has gone up further to 80 points currently. There is a lot of competition in these occupations.

What is the chance of getting visa under software tester category. One more thing I want to know is how many states are sponsoring for software testers.(is all states or only specific states.) Your answer will be appreciated.
    Thanks
