April 11th, 2019
Here are Iscah’s latest estimates of how long we think you will have to wait for a 189 invitation from TODAY – 11th April 2019. Depending on when you lodged your EOI, what the effect date is and the occupation.
These may not turn out to be DoHA settings, we are just trying to give a rough estimate in this age of uncertainty. If their policies change .. WE WILL CHANGE OUR ESTIMATES ACCORDINGLY
Our main assumptions are based on
– We think DOHA will invite around 300 EOIs in May and June 2019
– These numbers to be split 60% for Pro rata occupations and 40% for NON Pro Rata occupations
– From July 2019 we are estimating around 1130 invitations per round on average
– This is 18,652 for the program year. Less 2000 for New Zealand citizens, divided by 1.6 for family members, and allowing for a 30% invite wastage rate.
These estimates are heavily influenced by the number of invitations that DoHA issue each round, the limitations against some of the pro rata occupations, and a number of other factors listed here – http://www.iscah.com/use-189-eoi-predictions/
