When will I get my 189 visa invitation –
Here are our latest predictions following DIBPs skill selection round and our own unofficial results from 03/01/2018
This table predicts how long you will need to wait from the 11th January for EOIs lodged today, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months ago.
We have made an assumption that ON AVERAGE there will be 750 invitations each round from now until June 2018. This is based on the program targets DIBP have, their 6 months backlog of cases already being processed and the influence New Zealanders being part of the 189 program will have.
Also we have assumed (like in December 2017) that Accountants and Auditors will only have half their normal invitations given each month from now until June 2018. To allow for a more balanced number of invitations in the other occupations whilst total invites are so low.
Note there is NO guarantee these assumptions of 750 average per round over the next 11 rounds until June 2018 and the half invites for Accountants/Auditors are correct. We have simply made those assumptions in order to give some rough guide on how long people may have to wait for an EOI invitation IF DIBP continue with their recent policies.
