Hi,

confused about how many points I will get if I have apply to 491 visa;

dont have spouse (10 points)
IELTS Score 6 in all bands (5 points)
nominated by a State or Territory government (15 points)

!

So does this mean the applicant get 30 points out of all these criteria, or he only get one of them.



regards,
thanks,

There is zero points for competent English i.e 6 in each module
Else
For single 10 and nominated by state or territory 15 points.. Is correct.
So that means the applicant will get 25 Points extra

Thank you sir,

"Five points for applicants with a spouse or de facto partner who has competent English (New)"

what does this mean?

This means if an applicant has a spouse or de facto partner having only competent English then they can claim 5 Points.
And if an applicant has a skilled spouse or de facto partner then they can claim 10 Points for that.

I am interested to live my first years in Adelaide, this is whether I have high points or not. I dont want to jump directly into crowded cities like Sydney and Melbourne. Adelaide also looks a developed city, beautiful, quite and promising.

The other issue I am currently having is the points, I am working with immigration Agency, they told me most likely 6 years will be deducted from my experience, this is because my BCs is Telecom Eng, while my working experience is Network and System Engineer (263111). Appreciate if you have an info about how ACS evaluate Telecom Engineering degree, do they consider it Major, Minor, or completely unrelated?
deducting 6 years will leave me with 5 points of working experience.

So with visa 491, my best chance is to apply after 16 November for EOI, and here are my possible points:

30 points >> Age
15 points >> Bachelor Degree
5 points >> Working experience (if 4 years are deducted instead of 6, then I can get 10 points)
10 points >> have no spouse
15 points >> Visa 491

Total: 75 points

I really don't have much Idea how ACS evaluate
And yes I also want to go to Adelaide as all my family members & friends all are there and besides less crowded Adelaide is also cheap compared to Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane...
you can also opt for NSW regions if you Want to avoid crowded places but your occupation should be listed on respective NSW regions list.
Moreover,
Currently I have applied on NSW for Construction Project Manager on 22-8-19 With 65 points but I don't think I have been invited with minimum point..so I am also aiming to apply in November.
So with visa 491, my points will be as followed
25 Points- Age
20- Language
15- Degree
15- State Sponsor
10- Single
Total Points -85
And if I will update my EOI for NSW 190 I will be standing at 75 Points so my chances will also increase in November.
and if you have been finding more about the subclass 491 you can also read legisltaive instrument released by DHA

Good luck,

BTW, if you submitted EOI and after couple of months you become 33 years old, does it keep count you as 32 or it will be 33, since the difference 5 points.

No if I have been invited then my EOI will be locked and no difference won't be counted. But if I haven't received any invite and my age will be turn then EOI will be updated automatically & those difference of 5 points will be a matter.

Hi Folks,

In November, once the points increases will the effective date change for all that are gaining points? Just asking because such a change would render folks who are gaining points with no benefit of having applied earlier over people who applied closer to November.

Thanks,
Srini

Apparently no, there will be no change in DOE.

I am waiting for official disclosure to review the new system. Until then, I am not sure about the exact details.

Thanks . I am now with 75 points submitted EoI for 189. Pl. Keep us updated.
I am not an expert but I have heard and also read that you can claim points for being a single & state sooner both
So,
If you have applied for 189 then why do you want to claim 15 Points for state Sponsor? and as you said you are single then you can claim 10 points so after November you will be standing at 75+ 10 = 85 Points
And if you applied for 491 visa.
Then you will be standing at
75>> Currently
10>> Single
15>> State. Sponsor
Total 100 Points
Thanks

Thanks Arjun.
I know it will be 85 for 189. That additional 15 will serve for 491. Still I'd prefer 189. We'll see how it goes.

Since 2 consecutive months only 100 invitions are being issued BY DHA and this will remain same for another 2 months and they will start issuing 700+ invitation from Dec.
I don't know this is true or not but heard from Registered Migration Agent.
Thanks
