    190 or 489? Help the newbie!

    yes, your points will change. and i think you will need to update your EOI. Also, if I am not wrong, 489 visa is going to be discontinued from Sept (I guess)
  2. Hi Green, I dont know if it helps, but i received my 190 invitation from Tas in 6 weeks, and then visa in 4 months (lodgemnent 11th october 2018, grant 18th Feb 2019)

    Thanks sakani. There are actually quite a few Indian/ sri lankan drs in almost all the medical centers in Devonport (although I belong to Non of these two countries) but East devonport medical center sounds like a good place. Lets see if they take us in.

    Yes i have taken my kid there a couple of times, but he is more interested to take a dip in sea, than the park I will try getting an appointment with East devonport next time, for now I have booked an appointment with Smart clinic.

    Life in Devonport

    We are ready for the winter. We have braved the winters of Dundee, Northern Italy and Germany, so I believe winter in Devonport would be easily manageable . My employer booked a rental near Hillcrest primary before I arrived, its a nice house, a bit bigger than our needs, but its in a nice neighbourhood. My wife is taking it all pretty well, she likes it here as much as I do, and my little one is also very excited. We need to upgrade his immunisation record so he can start school, but its almost impossible to get an appointment at vally road. That the closest one to our place, but they are not taking any new patients. Plus, we just found out after arriving the we are expecting, yet another reason that we need to see a Dr ASAP.

    Life in Devonport

    So its been 2 weeks since I arrived in Devonport. I thought I might give an overview of my impression of the city. It is a lovely city. Very friendly and approachable people. Neighbours usually say Hi to you and wave, when they see you.Weather, although unpredictable, has been nice overall. Days are usually pleasantly warm, but evenings and nights are colder (but that''s natural for autumn/ winter). One thing that is off putting (if you are coming from a big city) is that it is very very quite at night. Even at 9 in the night, most shops and restaurants are closed. However, one problem that we are facing is that we cant get an appointment 'with a GP who Bulk bills. The one's that bulk bill, aren't taking any new customers. So if anyone can help with that issue, we would much appreciate. @Toots you might be able to tell us of a GP that bulk bills in or around devonport. But other than that, my experience has been much better than I expected to be.

    Thank you and I hope that you get the grant soon.

    190 visa

    I agree with you, what they say is in total contradiction to what they are doing. Its a shame that people who are actually committed to moving and settling to regional Australia have to wait longer than those who are free to choose their destination.
