    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    So a good day at work today...hoping to emigrate to adelaide next year and never been to Australia. Work have allowed me to go to Sydney on a job for 3 weeks in July this year so that I can see Australia before making the move. Not bad employers after all.

    So the COs have a pile to work through, hopefully the pile your in is straightforward. If your in a pile that things need checking up on then unfortunately your going to have to wait a little longer.

    It took 3 months for my stage 1, although they contacted me after 8 weeks asking for more pay slips, then 4 weeks later they asked for my reference contact details, then a week after that it was passed off. I paid for stage 2 straight away and didn't hear anything for 4 weeks although xmas was in the middle of that. Then my interview date was only 4 weeks from that. If your in the trade there's no need to worry, they even point you in the right direction if your unsure. Pattern development was square to round, radial line for cones and parallel line for branches etc.

    I think that you should be told within 10 days. If you applied online try looking on there for your results.

    Hi Enam I had my technical interview around 4 weeks ago. I posted this at the time. So I've just finished my technical interview and I though I'd pass on what to expect. Like everyone says it's very informal and it's just like your having a chat with someone at work. If there's areas your stuck on they help you best you can to give an answer. So questions they asked where: *Give measurements off a drawing on screen. *Name tools on screen ie. Tape measure, rule and vernier (tricky). *Talk about mechanical tools you use, with correct PPE and also what checks you do before using. *Talk about what parts you need to set up TIG,Mig and stick welding sets. * What gases you use for each and different tungsten for the ie. Red & Grey. * Shown me a couple of weld symbols and asked what they where. * What first aid and quality procedures your company has. *What's on a WPS sheet and also COSSH. Bit gutted they didn't ask about pattern development as I've been brushing up on it over the last few days. All in all it took 1hr 10min as if you'd answered things in another question he'd skip a few. Hope this helps

    Thanks Jellica Would it effect me if I had state nomination but hadn't lodged my visa application yet?

    Morning all I have a question if anyone can answer it please. I submitted my EOI to SA & skillselect 2 weeks ago for a 190 visa, if any rules change regarding my trade or points during this time would that make my EOI void? Also if my EOI gets accepted and again anything changed before I submitted my visa application would that stop my application? Thanks Mark

    Yeah I noticed the price increase the other day. Luckily I got mine passed off last month, otherwise it would have cost me another £400

    I've seen on the south australia website that they have discount with a couple of companies for skilled migrants to use for renting. I've not checked them out so not sure how much cheaper they are.

    That is a really good site....I've also used microburbs.com which is really good for info, don't know how accurate it is though.

    Just to butt in....Mount Barker is an area I've seen which seems nice and also new builds going up.

    IELTS help !

    You could book a few tests but leave enough of a gap so that you can get a refund if you don't need to re-sit.
