I have obtained max 75 points, how many chances for me to get 491 visa? If, how much time it will take. I did masters in mechanical engineer studied from India and have 6+ Year experience.

Thanks in advance,

I have 90 points. EOI updated in November 2019 for 189 visa. Is there any possibility i could get the invitation within this year?

What is your occupation code ?

Occupation is 2211 Accountant,
Seems like it’s highly unlikely with over 3000 EOIs already in the queue.

April 2019 invitees with 95 points got an invite in the last round. At this point, we exactly don’t know how the trend will be. You can view the invitation trend for the 2019 - 2020 here [ Australia Official Skill Select Results & Number of Invitations Per Round ].

I have applid as a developer programmer. I had 75 points in Aug (EOI Date) and november was updated to 85 (singple points) Is there any chance of getting an invite before October? My visa expire on 8th October 2020.

190 is at 90 points

Hi I have 95 points for sc 491 skilled regional-family sponsored stream under Business analyst occupation. Is their any possibility of getting invited with that score?

With the current trend, looks like it will be around Nov or Dec 2020 for 189.

Last Invitee with 95 points for ICT Business Analyst is with an EOI of 18/11/2019 6:20pm who got invited in Dec 2019. What is your EOI ?


I have 70 points and have dropped my EOI in Jan’20 for Occupation Cartographers and Surveyors -2322. Is there any possibility of getting invitation this year. The occupation ceiling for the Occupation shows 1000. 99.02% invitations are left. Does the chance of getting invitation depends on this percentage.

I have applied for 189 under Analyst programmer with 90 points EOI 21st Nov 2019. What are my chances of getting an invite by March 2020?

Based on the predictions given by iscah, you will get it in the next round.

It is highly unlikely that you will get an invitation before EOI expires. Try to increase the points to 80 for a chance.

Hello, I currently have 85 points with my occupation as Registered Nurse. My last EOI update was on 22 Jan 2020. Can you give an assumption when will I possibly get an invitation? And currently at what minimum points RN are getting 189?

Hi Praneeth,

Have you got an invitation? I have applied under 491 family sponsor with 95 points under system analyst on 20 Dec 2019.

I have not received an invitation yet.



We are in the same boat.

No one got an invitation under 491 system analyst after 18 Nov.

My Eoi date is 20 Dec. What is yours?


No I haven’t got invitation.
