    High Points for 489/190 - South Australia

    We just went for our medical checkup and getting the clearance of certificate today! But husband went to Australia studied for 3 years before so he will need to submit the clearance of certificate from Australia too. And that's an additional condition to fulfill. We will have to wait a bit longer to have all of the documents ready for submission since international posting for the Australia COC takes about 10-20 working days.

    That sounds really cool to have a community already before even moving over there.

    489 Visa Medical

    Just asking, so... for example, Police check and Medical Assessment was done on Feb 2019 and Visa was issued on Mar 2019. The deadline to enter Australia for activating the visa is 12 months from Feb 2019 or Mar 2019?

    489 Visa Medical

    No you can't do that. You will need to proceed to the state under the condition of the visa 489 that was granted to you.

    We are at the 23 days' mark, and waiting to collect our local Police COC and going for the medical assessment next week. Husband studied in Australia before, so there is an additional step to also request for the police coc from Australia. The certificate from Australia is done but international post requires 10-20 working days.

    Employment length

    I only know they will need all the employer reference letters that you have submitted for the assessment.

    In terms of their concern to mitigate the increase of immigrants moving to highly populated cities like Sydney & Melbourne, it does make sense that they wanna tackle the issue with this direct approach (amending the condition of provisional visa holders converting to PR). But if they decide to use a new visa replacing 489 visa for new applicants whenever they had decided, similarly taking the same approach as they have with 457 visa, it does seem like 489 would not be affected as the new condition should be applied to the new visa that comes with a total new package which differs from 489 visa. I do really hope that their future plans in tackling the uneven spread of population in Australia doesn't affect the existing 489 visa holders or 489 visa holders that are currently in the midst of processing for the visa.

    Seriously confused

    I come by this condition stated for the visa. If I am already married way before I apply the 489 visa and I stated it in the visa, is there a issue for me?

    I read that they were even considering of having the requirement to convert to permanent residence for regional skilled visa to 5 years. Is it true? That would be horrifying.

    The website indication for SA invitation is on average 5 weeks. However, I had my invitation after 16 days which is about two weeks. So I guess its within a time frame of 5 weeks and depend on the information you have provided to determine if it is straightforward for a quick processing. Also, I heard from the rest that the processing time during festive season was slow so the average time for processing would change as time goes by. It would be better if you go to this link for the latest update:- https://www.migration.sa.gov.au/resources/processing-times As for the visa grant, I am unable to provide any reliable information since I haven't gotten to that stage. But based on what my agent had told me, she was looking at probably 4-5 months. And according to this tracker here:- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1e6B4RJHJVbPbDXBSUh8sLP3WshvdIetq5f4hheTJQic/edit#gid=1908430159 , its saying 7-8 months. So I guess its probably between 4-8 months and also depending on the information you had submitted as well. Hope this helps.
