I am an offshore candidate and I have my sister living in Sydney so I want to move to the same place.
What are the suggestions for this case? I don't mind waiting for 2 years. but want to know is it worth giving it a try?
How about jobs for Software Engineer in regional areas?
Also how about doing NAATI for that extra 5 points.

Thanks.

Your points score indicated under Software Engineer would be extremely improbable to get an invite in current circumstances .
Regarding 491 visa there might be a possibility. But remember that you have to work in regional area . The main jobs for SE are all in cities like Brisbane Melbourne Sydney . Also 491 is not a PR visa and you might have to wait for long time to get PR even after fulfilling 491 conditions. My suggestion would be that if you still want to come to Australia in the long run , build up your experience on SWAre and target IT companies with Australian clients . Work offshore and after covid opens borders try for sponsored onshore projects . Once you come to Australia you have good chances of conversion to PR with local experience and also gain familiarity with local job markets . In case you get a 491 visa do research on the opportunities and demand in the region for SE and then come . Don’t waste your money and precious time of the life in coming to regional area and not getting right job opportunities

Thanks a lot, this comment was really a lifesaver!
I Could improve my score by getting 8 in IELTS/PTE, so it will be 80 Points, will there be any chance for 190 Visa now?

For 190 visa states can pick up any points if they choose to. But most states except Victoria are not giving the 190 To offshore now and have requirements to reside in the state. You may check the DHA website. But I have a friend waiting for invite for 1 year with 90 points onshore

I that case it seems very difficult for me to get a PR now.
After 2 years I can claim extra 5 points for work experience, which will 80 points + 5 points for the state sponsor.
but again the cutoff will increase after 2 years :(
Should stop my efforts for Australian PR or is there any hope left?

As told earlier , I would advise you to think long term and try to get sponsored projects with Indian IT companies . Once you come onshore your chance of 190 will increase . For 190 there is no cutoff as such . States can pick up any profile

G'day All,

Hope you all are doing well and staying safe, wondering if someone can advice here..

I'm working as a software engineer with 10 years experience and got my ACS assessment as software engineer successfully, currently have 85 points for 189 and 90 points for 190, submitted my EOI in Sept last year,, I'm currently working onshore,
Any luck with the 189 or 190 in the near future? Or what other options I can pursue?.
Any suggestions are welcome, Tx.

189 almost impossible. You might get lucky with 190 with superior English. Try to look at ways to increase 190 visa points if possible through NAATI or in any other way
