      So we received all required paperwork (PTE and Skills assessments) and submitted an EOI (189 and 190 NSW) on the 17th. Total points claimed are 80 and 85 respectively.    Now for the long wait. And hope we get our invites soonest. 
    • MichKen
      Hi all,     We are about to apply for a renewal of passport from Australia, with our current passports expiring in August 2019.  I believe the wait is something like 6 to 12 months at this point.... we don’t intend traveling and will only “need” the new passport when we do our 887 applications later next year.  My question.... what is the consequences to our current 489 visa if the passports expire before the new ones arrive (if they take more than 8 months). Thanks in advance!
    • Melvin2705
      Hi @Vusa, thank you for your response, much appreciated. You must be so excited to leave for Queensland? Yes, I need that patience definitely.   I am just hoping that ill get my invitation to apply by latest February 2019, and then to get the final VISA grant by end October 2019. I think this should be a realistic expectation seeing that by End February it will be 5 months since my EOI was submitted?   Kind Regards Melvin    
    • Dirkz
      Let us know if that's the way to submit it if/when she replies
    • pipDepp

      I was wondering if you could please assist me with an initial visa assessment. I am a South African with 2 years teaching experience with children aged between 11 and 14. I have a PCGE in Mathematics education as my highest degree. Looking to immigrate to Australia, am I eligible for a Visa?
