    Volunteer work is the key here.

    I have fluent accent but was told not having local experience is the reason I and many other migrants will not be able to get permanent jobs. There are those who get permanent jobs but it’s really rare.

    No worries. For job try large recruitment agencies as they are necessary evil who will help you land a temporary contract that you can use to Gain local experience. Local experience is a must otherwise no one hires you. Really rare for someone new here to get an immediate permanent job. Tailor your resume to Australian standards to get that extra advantage.

    For health insurance avoid Bupa. Very expensive and not good customer support. I suggest the ones that got the highest ratings and reviews by Australian customers like WestFund, CUA and Allianz. I personally used WestFund and Allianz and had no issues with them. WestFund have unlimited general dental that helped me a lot. For any major dental work you have to wait at least a year to get any benefits. all the best.

    Subclass 887 Visa - processing times

    Again, I feel that you have something against the migrants who are just asking for their simple right to stay in Australia. Saying words such as "don't leave your country" is like saying don't expect anything in return even if you have paid your taxes for years. As I said, its people like you who make the lives of other migrants hard with their " don't like it then don't come mentality".

    Subclass 887 Visa - processing times

    Isn't that a bit harsh? I mean the immigrants are not asking for a free pass, just asking for their right. Its because of people like you who think its normal that the immigration department are taking their sweet time to play with peoples lives.

    489 to 887 visa

    I recommend you to get the help of a MARA Agent. You can either wait until you spend all the time you spent abroad in Australia or get a help of a registered MARA agent who can submit a good reason on your behalf to the Home Affairs.

    489 Visa Gang

    The Case officer will request you to go through for Medicals and PCC. Just wait for their reply. IELTS is valid for one year if I'm not mistaken.

    489 Visa Gang

    You don't need to worry about it as the process is quite slow but it gets done in the end. You need a lot of patience in this. Trust me.

    489 Visa Gang

    You need to find out if there is a demand for Bakers in the state which you are applying for. Usually you should have a year experience with solid proof, full time payment and pay slips to apply. All the best

    489 Subsequent entry process time

    Its a long process depending on your country of origin, your case, visa type, and if all documents have been uploaded, attested and translated if not in English. For me I got it after 9 months.

    Diabetes won't be an issue.But if there is some sort of organ failure due to diabetes like kidney, heart, eyes then it might be an issue.

    190 or 489?

    When in doubt always go for the permenant visa. If you can stay away from 489 then better as you have to drag yourself for 2 years and 1 year job to be considered for PR. If you go for the 190 then its better for you. I read somewhere that you can apply for both visa types so you can take whatever comes as positive for you but you might end up paying double the fee? or you and your husband have to apply for it separately? In these cases I always recommend you to get the help of a registered migrant who can guide and help you on the way. Best of luck.
