Hi,

Has anyone been invited to apply for 190 visa while they were offshore during this pandemic? If yes, have you had any CO contact or has your visa been granted?

Cheers.
Waiting for an ITA for the past 2 months from Vic. I am offshore. Not sure if they are inviting for now. Would be interested to know if anyone else has received an invite.

Hi,
I'm offshore and I got the ACT invite right before the pandemic and lodged my application. Although the current processing time shows no more than 7 months for 190, I still doubt any visa grant will be really made for offshore people within this time frame... At least my application has been showing "received" status for 4 months now.
Is anyone else from offshore has update please share. Thank you!

Hi ,
I'm onshore and has been 1 year and 18 days since I lodged my application, and 7 months since CO contacted for further info. Yet no news from them!

Hi,
I'm in a similar situation as yours, except my state nomination is NSW. I have lodged my application in February 2020 and the status has been "Received" since then. I'm still waiting and hoping here.
Good luck to you.

Seems like any movement for offshore applicants could happen only after borders are open. I hope the delays do not put the applicants back in the queue to get an invite.

I read in a different forum, that states could charge offshore applicants a particular sum of money for quarantine costs (Hotel / Food) and in that scenario DHA could start processing offshore applications again. Again, not sure of the authenticity. It was only a forum discussion.

Hope for the best for everyone !!!

Hi, I don't think the delays will put applicants who already lodged their applications back in the queue for a new invite (I never heard of this kind of case, do you?). Delays will take a longer time for people to relocate to Australia. However, in such a pandemic time, we can't do much more about it. The only thing I can think of is that we might need to redo health exam when the old one expires in one/half year... it's pretty expensive =/

Yes, thats the only change I expect to, but the pandemic has created so many uncertainties that I wont be surprised by any weird policy changes/requirements. Just was thinking out loud of any worse possibilities. Re-doing health/PCC dont even seem a concern anymore :)

At what score did you get the invite from Victoria?
Thanks
