Unofficial April 11th 2020 Skill select result for 189 and 491 family sponsored

A selection round was conducted last night and our best estimate are 200 or less 189 invitations

We expect this is a combination of DHA already having more than enough 189 applications lodged to fill the 2019/2020 , with a healthy backlog too. As well as some nervousness as to where the corona virus leaves the flexibility around a closed border current policy for health reasons.

With so few invites it is hard to get much data and so the table includes a number of pro rata occupations where we did not see any invites so far. It is highly likely each of those groups did have a few invites though . And apart from Accountant/Auditor .. the rest almost definitely settled at around 95 points

To produce our results we collect data from our own clients, online forums, other online sources, and feedback from our FB and newsletter followers. As well as using mathematical logical assumptions we know in the past to be correct.‍‍‍‍‍‍ If you aware of any more recent invites for any of these occupations please email us at query@iscah.com with some details so that we can see if this table can be updated over the next 24-48 hours.

With so few 189 invites a number of pro rata occupations were able to attract 491 family sponsored invitations. We saw invites in the 2613 and 2339 as well as many non pro rata groups and there may be others. The lowest score we have seen so far is 75+ 15 (sponsor) points. The EOI effect date was 5th April 2020

We anticipate publishing our new 189 estimates table shortly
