    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    Jellica - are you going with a partner or family like Jon and Sophie? I am going alone.
  2. I submitted my application this week. Hopefully it will be closer to the front and not get stuck at the bottom of the pile. Do they process these in occupation groups or is it just first come first served?

    I am from near Manchester. Are you in the area still?

    I have been. I used to work for SunCorp on my working holiday visa and I briefly visted.

    Oh sorry. I the mobile app chopped off the /190 from the title! I didn't find the rates as such. On the SOL this position stayed on Green. It didn't go to blue or red or go to the high 90 points. I am assuming this is due to low demand. This occupation isn't on any other state 489, 190 or the 189 so this will help. I hope we do get to do that. I will bring the beers!

    I thought you was going for a 489? I'm hoping they prioritize by job. Mine (after a change and new assesment) had a lower application rate last year compared to many.

    Hello I did the same this week on the same day as you. I have 70 points. How many points do you have?

    Holiday let or alternative?

    I would check Airbnb should be loads of options on there that are cheaper than holiday rentals.

    Criminal record ?? Where do we stand ?

    I get what you mean but you can't expect the agent to work for free. Especially when it isn't simple like your situation. Nobody on here can give you a definitive yes or no.

    Best TV service in AU?

    The Sky equivalent is Foxtel. The boxes are nearly identical. Although you might be better with a streaming service!

    Thai Airways

    One problem with Thai is they swap their aircraft around quite regular. It can result in your seat allocation being change. This is less likely to happen on the UK leg though.
  13. I am hoping I will be safe. I took a calculated risk. I switch to an occupation that isn't on any other SOL. So in theory it should have a lower application rate.
  14. Dont tell me this!! I am getting my skills assessment changed to get in via another occupation.

    Frequent Flyer Points

    You need to stick to 1 a group of airlines to maximise your points. For example if you are a member of the Qantas scheme you can claim points when you fly Qatar, BA, Cathay Pacific (and more!) because they are all in the OneWorld alliance. Star Alliance is another. They have members such as Singapore Airlines, Asiana, ANA.
