    Hi All.... This is my situation I work for a Sri Lankan IT company and one of our customer is Aus. I was in Aus 2016/17 working on a project for the above customer for 3 months on the 400 visa in early 2017 we received the 489 I was again in Aus for 4 months on the 489 visa working for the same customer.

    489 Based Migration

    Hi Everyone...Apologize for the lengthy post...we just received the 489 Visa in SA and here is the current state My wife is the primary applicant. The company i work for in Sri Lanka does Internal IT Projects and the current project i'm involved in is for a Aus customer. I worked in Aus from Dec-2016 to Feb-2017 using the 400 Visa and i was based in VIC. Right now im back in Sri Lanka and hoping to get back using the 489 to continue with the above-mentioned project. Here are my questions... 1. We will be living in SA and since my wife is the primary applicant is there any work restrictions for me to work in VIC ? 2. What are the initial steps i should do when i come to Aus using the 489 ? 3. What about a Tax File, Bank account...etc
  10. Hi everyone..... We have applied for SA State Sponsored under 489. My wife is the primary applicant and I have already found work in VIC. Is this a possibility where we live in SA (My wife will look for work in SA) but I will shuttle to SA from VIC every couple of weeks or monthly. Regards Chris
  11. We did and what the agent told us was it's still been processed and since we submitted the medicals just before the holiday season there might be delays...so fingers crossed
  12. Note sure...we went through an agent... and the agent hasn't informed us of it
  13. No.. The panel Dr said nothing to worry after the physical..etc... but the Blood tests takes 24hrs and we didnt hear from them after that..so im assuming it's nothing major

    Agent or do it yourself?

    We went through an agent and awaiting the final stage outcome... although the agent has been helpful, all the information is online so if you have the time to go through the Aus immigration site and prepare your documents...etc .... I'd recommend you do it on your own and save the cash.
