Hi All,
I have been waiting for the NSW 190 offshore visa grant (or a CO contact) since July 2019...I believe there are more people like me who are waiting and hoping the reopen can finally push our cases to move forward. I'm just starting this thread to call for people who are on the same boat, and we can give each other updates once there's a movement.

Thanks and wish us all good luck!

Best Regards
Manna

Hello. Thank you for starting this thread. I am on the same boat and have been waiting since November 2019 for non critical occupation.
I want to ask though - in my Immi account, they used to display the estimated months to finalize the decision. In the last months of 2021, the waiting time has been progressively decreasing, which I was taking as a good sign. However, since December 2021, they removed it and I'm not sure if it means we now have to wait indefinitely with no indication on timings, which is unfortunate. Is this the same case for others?

Hello. Do you still have the estimated processing time in your Immi account? Mine disappeared two months ago and just now says "check global processing times". It was 5-10 months last November before it became indefinite.

Hi!

Was wondering if anyone got invited from NSW this round? :)

Also, what will the timeline be once you got invited to your final grant?

Cheers,
CS

Hi Catherine,

My application is through an ImmiAgent so I really do not have an idea of the same. May be some one else on this forum can guide us on it.

Hopefully we all get through it asap.

Hi ,
My agent checked yesterday …it is not showing timeline …. Only link to global processing timelines
Thanks Tanvi! Just want to ask if you have any insights from your agent as to when the grants will push through given the reopening of borders? I did the filing on my own, so I'm a little in the dark. Thank you and appreciate your feedback :)

Hopefully we should get through this soon.

I was just wondering if we would be asked for our Health check and PCC both or just the Health check ?

Hi Manna, I included those two in my initial application, but I assume that we will be required to produce new ones since it's been a couple of years... Usually the request will appear on your Immi account.

Was invited to apply for 190 NSW after successful EOI, submitted application in November/December 2019, status has been 'received,' on immi account ever since.

Used an agent and they have zero additional info, all their other applications are in limbo too.

My reluctant conclusion (as I'm sure is the same for everyone here) - NSW simply aren't processing off-shore 190 applications :(

Really hoping something changes soon. If they're allowing working holiday visas and the borders are open for travellers, there doesn't seem to be much reason in not processing 190 visas :(

Hi George,

Thanks for reaching out. Hopefully things should get better with time.

In my opinion, processing of offshore applications has nothing to do with NSW but only with DHA. There are only a few grants of 190 for offshore applicants and coincidentally none for NSW (as seen on this forum). Let’s all hope for the best.

Hi freakytrends,

Thank you for the information. Could you please share the source? I hope we all see 190 grants coming out soon.

I received the following notice in January. Interestingly, 189 is last on the list Ito processing priority:

The following points-tested skilled migration visas are subject to processing priority arrangements:

Subclass 189 (Skilled - Independent) (Points-tested stream)
Subclass 190 (Skilled - Nominated)
Subclass 489 (Skilled - Regional (Provisional))
Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional))

For the above listed visa subclasses, the current processing priorities (with the highest priority listed first) are:

Visa applications for any points tested subclass where the Department has determined that the applicant has an occupation within a Critical Sector.
Subclass 491 (non-Critical Sector) – applicants are in Australia
Subclass 491 (non-Critical Sector) – applicants are outside of Australia
Subclass 489 (non-Critical Sector)
Subclass 190 (non-Critical Sector)
Subclass 189 – Points tested stream only (non-Critical Sector)
