Can anybody confirm if 489s have reached their ceiling/quota for 2019.

An agent mentioned that Australia has reached its maximum number of 489 grants for the year and won’t be issuing any more. I really hope this is not true.

Looking at the 489 tracker, and other related forums, it seems that there are very few grants lately.

#3

There have been no grants listed on the tracker for applications lodged after November 2018.

@RNB, yes, it seems to be on pause. Nothing happening on 489s.

This is of great concern.

If anyone reading this is using an agent, please ask them if they are in contact with immigration and can give us some feedback on this. We are getting very anxious.

Does anybody have any inside info or agent feedback on the state of 489 grants?
