When you will get a 189 invite – Iscah Estimates March 2019

Here are Iscah’s latest estimates of how long we think you will have to wait for a 189 invitation from TODAY – 11th March 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 invited around 1000 invites in April, 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 back to 2500 per round on average and the Occupational Ceilings for each occupation (again until we hear something different)
– we have factored in the wasted invite figures although this will have a lesser effect with reduced invites per round
