How long does SC190 visa takes to get processed?

Waiting for oct 9. Western Australia

Occupation and ANZCO?

why is WA processing is very slow compared to other states. Still no one got any grant for Oct’ 19.

Is there any effects on 190 visa applications processing due to corona virus lockdowns???

People say state has no role to play in grant, only immi plays role here. But its true that applicants from WA getting their visas very slowly as compared to others. I haven’t seen any grant for sooo long. Moreover, soft engineers are getting more grants comparitively.

I was contacted by CO on 4 March for more details, uploaded it on 17 March. With COVID19 and responses here, will I have to wait 3 months minimum??? Any idea or suggestion? it’s really stressful, Checking in Immi Tracker and Email every now and then to find if there is any response or any changes. I applied in Nov 18 2019 from WA as Engineering Technologist, 233914. After getting invite, does prioritising Processing of 190 Visa also depend on the points??? or simply dates?? Any Idea???

Thanks for the reply.

Hi guys,

Are they processing Subclass 190 visas during this lockdown nd does your anzsco code matter when they are processing?

Hi fellow aspirants,

I filed for EOI in Aug 2019 with 90 points and got invite in sep 2019. I filed the application in OCT 2019 with all the documents and health check done. Its been 7 months and it still says application RECEIVED. I haven’t received assessment commenced email nor has the CO contacted me. Any one in the same situation?

With given situation of COVID-19, things are not moving at expected pace. You might need to wait a bit more. I knew of people who had been waiting for over one year with same points. It depends on many factors which no one knew of. All that I mean to say is, 7 months wait is still fine, nothing to worry about. I myself have been for almost 11 months. And, not all will receive assessment commencement email. I haven’t got one but got a CO contact after 6 months of lodgement.

Hi, i applied on 21st Nov 2019 for South Australia but so far no response has been received.

Hi Zainab,

I can see some people who lodged in January 2020 for SA subclass 190 have received their grants this April.

Hi Peter,

Yeah. this is really strange from the authorities. Dont know how they work?

Today the processing time is shown 7 to 9 months. Earlier it was 10 to 11 months.

Dear friends - I am an offshore applicant and will have 95points as ICT Business Analyst (with 15point for exp & 20point for English) by May2020.

Do you think - I can expect to get an invite from VIC (190) during 2020 or by Mar2021? Any insights would be very helpful.

Due to age criteria - 5points will be down by Apr21 and I’m left with no alternate plans for AU.

Cheers, Pradeep

Let’s hope that the travel ban will be expired in July or Aug, then the offshore applicant can get the grant.:yum::yum::yum::yum::yum::yum:

Its better you contact some migration agent (try to concat one in Australia via email) because they have better sight about points required to get invitation for any occupation/state. As an alternate, you can see EOI 189 or 190 page of this site to check for how much points Business analysts got invites recently, for any state you are interested in. I found people with 90 points got invitation in Sept, Oct 2019 for 189 In this category, people with 75 points also got invitation from VIC state

Hope it helps
