    Holidays Outside My Regional Area

    I don't have that much holiday so all good! Thank you both for taking the time to reply.
  2. Hello, I am fortunate enough to have a job that has a healthy amount of annual leave. I am keen to use this to visit other parts of Australia and overseas. I am on a 489 visa sponsored by SA. I am wondering if there is a maximum period of time I can be outside of the state please? I won't be living or working outside the regional area just visiting. Thanks

    Moving to Adelaide Suburbs

    I live in Adelaide and I would avoid Hallett Cove. All the poms seem to go there and the Aussies look down on it a little. Im here to integrate not segregate myself. I would avoid areas north of the CBD as many are quite rough. In particular avoid Elizabeth, Salisbury and the surrounding areas. South of the CBD are nicer areas. Mitcham, Unley, Belair. East and West of the CBD are nice.

    Notice Period

    Good Morning, I am based in SA and I have been offered a new position as a senior manager. I am reviewing the documents and the notice period is 6 months. Is this usual please? My current position (manager) is 4 weeks. 6 months seems quite excessive. Thanks
  5. I wouldn't have thought that would count no. You're not residing in the country, just visiting. For the sake or 6 weeks it's not really worth the hassle and risk. Just apply for the 887 6 weeks later than you planned.

    489 or 190

    FYI - The 489 visa has now finished and has been replaced by the 491 visa. You cannot apply for the 489 anymore. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/getting-a-visa/visa-listing/skilled-work-regional-provisional-491

    Decision Made...

    It may be simple for you. If you follow this link you can do most of it online. https://www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport/renew You will need to send off your old passport back to the UK. They will post it back to you with the corner cut off. This will be posted separately from your new passport. It's a quick process these days. Should only take a few weeks - mostly because of slow postage. However - if your passport was issued in the 80's it may take longer (6 weeks I believe).

    Getting cheaper rent

    This guy is a troll. On another post they claim they hadn't showered in 6 weeks.

    90 days out for every year during the four years

    I do believe they do. I met a Qantas pilot who does long haul routes. He recently became a citizen and he is out of the country a lot.

    489 visa

    I suppose it depends on your profession?

    491 application

    I think the invitation numbers are very low for the family track.

    489 Visa - Visting Other Places?

    Hello, I am living and working in South Australia on a 489 visa. I intend to apply for an 887 visa at a later date. I plan to visit other places both within different states of Australia and oversees. This will also include cities that are not designated regional areas. These are just holidays / breaks and I will be remaining a resident and working in SA. Is there a limit of how long I can be out of the state or designated regional area please? Thanks
