ICT Security Specialist or Software engineer as primary applicant

(Gajendra Jain) #1


We(Me and my spouse) have got assessed from ACS and based on our analysis on PR points I would get 75 points and my spouse would get 70 points in best case.

Our details are as follows
Gaj: ICT Software engineer(75 Points considering Partner skill and SUB 190)
Var: ICT Security Specialist(70 Points considering Partner skill and SUB 190)

Who should be the primary applicant in the Visa application, So that we get the VISA as early as possible?
For the above anzsco’s which country would be better (VIC or NSW) for get the VISA and JOB.

Kindly Let me know your view.

You should file the EOI with person who is getting more points i. E. ICT software engineer.

You will get invite immediately if you file with 75 points for 189 visa.

I have confusion between Non Pro-Rata(ICT Security Specialist) and Pro Rata(Software engineer). Could you please explain a bit?

My understanding is that there are very few applicants applying as ICT Security Specialist(May get invitation early) and huge number as Software engineer (waiting in queue for long time with 75 points also).

So I thought of making person with ICT Security Specialist as primary.

Please correct me if I have misunderstood.

I have written about difference between pro-rata and non pro-rata in detail here:

Yes, you are right.
If you apply using non-prorata job code, you will get invite faster than pro-rata.

Thanks once again.

Now we have Non-Pro-rata (70 Points) and Pro-Rata(75 points). Based on Points and Pro-rata, who should be primary so that we get faster invitation?

As i said earlier, filing with Software Engineer will get you invite faster than security specialist profile in your case.

At this time, the software engineer (261313) is getting invite with 70-75 points whereas security specialist (262112) needs 80 points.

What you can do is file two separate EOI. One with primary as software engineer and other with Security specialist as primary.

Then, file PR with whichever EOI gets invite first.

Does that help?

Thanks. That’s really good plan.

One more question, any official website/link where we can monitor the invitation being sent out for software engineers or ICT Security specialist?

so that we can plan accordingly.

There is no official data shared by Australia immigration except this:

How do we track how many invitation are sent from individual state

I don’t know if states share any invite data.
