    How to add people to a visa?

    Migration agents I've rang just want to either get a holiday visa or subsequent on my 489, really not giving me a strategy. As you can tell this is not a short term plan and not entirely straight forward. I could get her a subsequent, but if she spends time out of the country over so many days will it not prevent her applying with me for the 887. Does her two years start from scratch or does is run concurrent with mine.

    Thanks for that. If I were to get married in three weeks, would I need to get her added to the 489 or can I wait for the 887. Reason I say this. I work away and every other swing go to my house in Thailand, I don't want to make her sit at home for 3 weeks. Once my 887 is granted I'm happy to then work back in Perth and start a proper family life. Is it possible to get a multiple entry tourist visa so she could visit me every other swing instead so she can discover Australia

    How to add people to a visa?

    G'day PIO! I've been here in WA on firstly a WHV in 2012 then onto my 489 Skilled Provisional Visa. This visa was granted in June 2013 whilst I was already here and working. I failed to get a regional job and had to quit my good job in Perth. Instead of being unemployed, August I took an offer to go contracting back in the UK. Fast forward to January, I had an offer to come back and work in Port Hedland, so I took it and moved down to Mandurah working 3/1 on the Roy Hill project. From 2012 until now I've been seeing a beautiful women who I asked to marry me, to my delight she accepted. I've known her since 2007 but our old relationship ended in 2009, she is Thai and has a daughter of 3 which she has sole custody. my question are, what visa can she apply for? If we get married whilst I'm still a temporary resident on my 489 will it hinder my chances of gaining the 887 after 2 years? Or will I still be able to apply. My ideal scenario is that she gets added to my visa now. However with me working 3/1 it doesn't seem fair to bring her here away from her support network to live in a foreign country on here own. Once my 887 is granted I'll come back to work in the CBD so it won't be an issue. i was hoping to get married in May this year. any advice guys would be greatly appreciated. I've tried migration agents who have really not been very helpful, so I was hoping someone on here may have more knowledge that that can share for free. I don't have the patience or time to do the visa applications myself so will use an agent when we apply.

    Migration of sponsored state

    so if I go and work in the NT when I come to apply for my PR the fact I worked/lived in NT but was sponsored by WA should have no bearing on the outcome of the decision? Is it just a case of go and do it or do I have to fill out forms etc

    condition 8539

    Hi Guys Just looking for some information on my moral obligations under WA state sponsorship. I was granted a 489 end of May while onshore. I've been trying to get work in regional WA for 6 months now with no luck at all. I want to live in WA however working here at the moment outside of Perth is proving impossible. I've been offered many jobs but they are all in Perth which is no good to me. I took the 489 under the advice of the dept. of migration WA as my occupation was being taken off the list in a the next few weeks of the phone call. I've read many posts which say different things and quite often refer to the PR visas. My visa is a provisional and don't want to prevent myself from being able to convert it to after working in regional for two years. In terms of my visa condition 8539 it does not specify any region or state in particular. Can I move to NT, SA or Tas for example where any area is classed as regional. What information will the DIAC request when I try to gain PR in regards to my obligations. I am very lucky to receive a visa and I am totally grateful, please don't beat me up as my intention was to stay in WA where I have all my friends and some family. Moving to another state was never really even considered until a week ago. I would move back to WA at the earliest opportunity if it was right to do so. Thanks Guys I really do appreciate any serious advice anyone can give.

    Migration of sponsored state

    I'm reading this with interest. I have a 489 visa which is regional sponsored by WA. Will it effect me when I were to apply for the 887 if I didn't fulfil my commitment to WA? I can find any work in WA and soon will run out of money. I had a great job here but it wasn't regional and now up in the creek without a paddle so to speak. Looking like I may need to go back to the UK unless I can start looking interstate.
  9. thanks for the reply. does it make any difference how long I leave the country for? eg: can I ;eave for 18 months and come back to complete my two years?
  10. I've got a WA 489 visa and have really struggled to get work. I had a great job in perth but have to leave it because its not regional. I've applied for 100's of jobs and got no phone calls whatsoever. Running out of money pretty fast. Now I've been offered a job to work in the UK on a 6 month contract working offshore on the rigs. I really need the cash, where do I stand rev entering in 6 months. Is running out of money sufficient excuse to leave and return?

    WA State Sponsored 475 visa obligations question

    What if I live in regional and work for a Perth based company however my job is done at home?

    WA State Sponsored 475 visa obligations question

    He is a migration agent! That's the frustrating part, no one can give me a straight answer. I work for a company which head office is in Perth. However I work in regional areas and never enter the city limits for work purposes. However he is telling me the office has to be in regional. Just how many companies are based regionally? 99% of Wa ASX listed companies are based in the city.

    WA State Sponsored 475 visa obligations question

    I'm 99.99% sure you can. As long as you can prove the 1 year. I've just been given my 489 which is a similar visa, how did you do the work. I'm being given information very frustrating by my migration agent. he says the COMPANIES office has to be in regional, so even me working for a city based company but living and working in a regional area full time as part of that companies business wouldn't be allowed. I cant see this, if that was the case, that would mean I could work for a regional based company in city centre Perth and it cant be right?
  14. I applied November 2012 and my visa was granted last week for my 489 provisional state sponsored visa. Rules regarding work and living arrangements are very difficult to find online. at the moment I live NOR which is not in regional WA. My visa was granted whilst I'm onshore, surely can't be expected to move instantly. When I look at the WA site it's says I have to live in area upon arrival. When I ask migration agent they say I can live for the two years at any time during the 4, same for the work. now for work, I'm able to work in mandurah for the company which I currently work for which IS regional but I've been told that similar to FIFO it wouldn't count towards the 'work period' unless the company is 'based' in regional. Surely this can't be right?? It rules out more jobs than I can imagine. Most companies on the larger scale are CBD based. this visa is very very constrictive! I'm so happy to be here but feel really up against it. Did a job search for construction in the area and a massive 4 jobs showed. Feel like I've been sold a fake t shirt for full price
