    Something better than nothing mate. Going to try SA too when your points go up?

    Nursing registration and work visa

    Apply for a skills assessment and see how many years experience they give you. If you need the points then you should try for superior English to score 20 points.

    489 work requirements before PR?

    Keep in mind that the visa is valid for four years and you only need to work for 1 year total to be eligible for the 187

    New rules for partner points

    With the current government staying in power, we'll see if these November changes and intake cut hold.

    Is it pointless to apply now??

    He would actually get 5 further points due to his partner being skilled, rather than her English language ability. He would be on par with single applications, but a leg up on those with unskilled partners. Ozpaul, you should be looking into the 489/491 if you don’t think you’d qualify for the 190. At first glance, if your wife can score 55 points plus 10 for state sponsorship as a secondary school teacher, then you could apply for NSW or Tasmania. See these options presently open for secondary school teachers 489: https://www.migration.tas.gov.au/skilled_migrants/skilled_regional https://www.rdasi.org.au/regional-migration/state-sponsored-migration-489-visa
  6. Some states want commitment only to that state. If one expresses interest and or applies to other states and doesn't disclose that information then there may be a problem if the nominating state find out. In the Tasmanian requirements for example there is a line: "... express interest in living in another state or territory will not meet the criteria to be considered for state nomination in Tasmania".
  7. What occupation did you apply under?
  8. You can only select one preferred state. Keep in mind when applying for ACT you must sign a commitment to live and work in that state for two years. Not sure how one can be committed if they have also expressed interest in another state. http://www.canberrayourfuture.com.au/workspace/uploads/documents/190-matrix-guidelines-29-nov-18-v1.1.pdf

    Why the new regional visas? In July when your points go up to 70 you can apply for SA under the high points category (if that stays at 80). That would still fall under the 489 two years regional visa if invited and you apply before November 16. Then there’s also the other states with your occupation on their lists for a fall-back. Heres one that is open for you at this very moment, with NO onshore work experience required: https://www.rdasi.org.au/regional-migration/state-sponsored-migration-489-visa

    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    You are misinformed here, nowhere in the legislation does it state that one must live in the same region that they were sponsored.

    EOI 189/190 advice please

    How many points do you have before state sponsorship? Having that 190 attached to the 189 should not affect whether you get a 189 invite or not. But if you wanted to apply for a 190 with another state, couldn’t you just change the preferred state by editing the EOI or does editing the EOI to a different state reset the Date of Effect? Anyone know the answer to this?

    New rules for partner points

    I would think this is because that unskilled partner would be taking up a place that would otherwise go to a skilled single applicant. To skilled single applicants greater return to Australia than only one.

    New rules for partner points

    I read that link that gary chandi posted in that secondary teachers thread and to me it seems like partner points will not stack. If it comes to fruition, we would no longer me disadvantaged. See below screenshot from that document:

    New rules for partner points

    Hopefully it isn’t stacking, if the numbers in the brackets is what one would get that would be great, but even then these changes are better than nothing. Will be interesting to see if the priority equal points will also be adopted by states (like NSW) for the 190 or if it is only for 189. The “more points for nominated by a state” refers to the 491 visa only and not the 190 as well? At the bottom Iscah says one will be free to move to any state, as long as they stay regional.... will be interesting to see how the 491 will work with the commitment to the state and sponsorship requirements. Will states then push to get 489s issued before Nov 16, or will they wait and hold the migrant to an additional year regional. The “one cannot apply for any other permanent visa if issued a 491” is interesting.
