    Hi, Try to do some research in internet. I think Sunshine Coast area is good. Accommodation will be harder to find as we would be freshers to the area. So shared accommodation will be the solution. There are plenty of those.

    I am in Dubai. One more thing, my friend told not expect same lifestyle we experience in gulf. He was working in Dubai too. He said everything is different in Queensland, at least in outskirts. There is no happening nightlife (they have those only in big cities) in placed we have to stay, all shops will be closed by evening and roads will literally empty by 6 7 pm. More greenery and everyone is in a very laidback mood. No big shopping malls an so on. He said, there were some guys who had gone back to middle-east cause they found it difficult to adjust. Even jobs are not competitive as here.

    Sure, I will. Yeah we are going to QLD too. I have a friend their, as per him we have to support ourselves for 3 4 months till we find a job. You can get a room from a shared house for around 1200 per month, this includes electricity and water. For food, it will be 300 per month for a couple, 100 for internet, 200 for fuel. Best way to travel is by car. You have to buy one asap, as it is required in some occupations also. A used car in good condition can be bought for around 5k to 7k, and there will be another 1k for registration and insurance. You can drive with you existing license. So overall 16k - 18k is sufficient to settle down. There will be other expenses as well which we might not foresee and all these depend on your life style too. By the way, are you applying from SL or abroad?

    It is done from our end, now we have to wait for them to review documents and grant visa. Nothing much to do unless they ask for some more documents or clarifications. No worries, I received the nomination of 5th Feb, completed medical and submitted all docs by 5th March.

    Hi Pasan, Did you submit everything?

    QLD 489 APPROVAL TIME

    Oh... this is your second chance then. don't get it wrong. Give only things they ask for. keep it a good length. Not too short or not too long. Cover those things they ask for and keep it simple.

    how many chances did they give you earlier?

    Did you receive an invitation to apply?

    You can apply anywhere outside. Brisbane and Gold Coast. Places like Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba will be great. Statement of service means your work experience, you can use the same documents you used for Skill Assessment. With regards to commitment statement, it can be a letter you are writting to BSMQ. Include the area you plan to settle in (with post code). Then give personal reasons why you selected given area (no need to be formal, give casual details. eg - beaches, weather, local attractions, local events). Then explain what you going to do after settling (things like, raising a family, finding a job, leisure activities and etc). Their main concern is your preparedness to settle in the area. So they expect you to research the area properly, and have a idea about neighborhoods, employment opportunities, culture of the area. Go through the BSMQ website it has lots of details about these thing. And once again there is no standard format for commitment statement.

    Can't say anything without looking at you Skill Assessment. You could have asked AIQS why they considered only 4 years. They are friendly people, and normally explains everything. Experience will matter at the visa stage. Better get your experience sorted with AIQS and submit a new EOI

    Hi Kumara, It depends on how you interpret total experience. AIQS will only consider your experience gained after completion of the degree. Internships do not count as well.
