    491 visa

    Yeah I could take another state sponsorship but it seems so much hassle having to get the wife and kids all settled, make friends and find a job. Then think about moving again another three years down the line. It would be so much easier moving over where we have family, stay with them until we get on our feet etc. I could also take a state sponsorship and move to where I wanted anyway! As it's not a legal requirement as some people have pointed out to me. But for me that doesn't sit well morally and I would rather do it properly and wait. Thanks for your input.

    491 visa

    Not even as far as that I am afraid! I have only just finished my skills assessment.

    491 visa

    Yeah I couldn't get a state nomination as I couldn't fulfill the criteria for the state I wish to live in unfortunately and I don't quite have enough points (80) to be invited for a skilled independent visa. Looks like it's going to be a long wait!

    491 visa

    Really! I can't say I am not a little disappointed! I have been told by my migration agent on average 18 months and even at that I was thinking damn that's too long to wait I want to go yesterday! But hopefully that time fly's in. So do you reckon the more points you have the quicker you might get invited? Thanks for your reply.

    Oil and gas market

    Thanks for the info. Really just testing the water see what the market is like. Probably won't be over for another 18 months depending on visa! I have 9+ years offshore experience and have one or two people I can contact over there so hopeful to pick something up. Wish your son the best good career in my eyes.

    491 visa

    Hi folks, I have just started my visa application process 491 via the family sponsor stream. I know this is a new visa type but does anyone have a relatively rough estimate on the processing times? Thanks, Forry
