When will you get a 189 invite – Iscah predictions for October 2018

Here are Iscah’s latest estimates of how long we think you will have to wait for a 189 invitation from TODAY – 11th October 2018. 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 DOHA continuing to invite around 2500 EOIs per month.

And we also assume that 60% of invites will go to Pro Rata occupations as advised by DoHA, on average through 2018/19.

We have also added the text of “EOI to expire before invite” to some EOIs. This is because any that were lodged 12 months ago that we are predicting will not get an invite before July 2019 will mean that the 2 year period of the EOI will expire. So they cannot get an invite on current estimates.

This month we have slowed down the Accountant invite estimation given that DoHA have advised the Accountant quota will continue to be limited further by Accountants granted visas in other categories. And also the significant slowing down of the EOI invite date in the October results we have seen so far.

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 –
