    (subclass 489) visa problem

    hi, i am Ahsille from Malaysia. I am a school lab technician and I already got my skilled asses by VETASSES.and it is positive. I already pursue my IELTS and i got overall band 6.0 i try to apply under [h=3]Skilled - Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional) (subclass 489) visa[/h] but i think i my job is not under any state sponsorship. if i click any,is it okay? i'm half way through all this process. anyone can advice?
  2. I know it's a weird question. I'm trying to decide whether to go to Oz or Canada for IT degree. In Canada I most prob. will have a route to PR after. But I prefer Oz for the climate (yes it is that important to me), in Canada I am pretty much limited to living in some specific places in BC as far as places I'd actually want to live. Still Canada PR still has value to me and I do like Canada as well. Anyhow if only I had some way of estimating my chance of actually getting PR in the future if I go to Oz it will make my life a lot easier. I am going to do a Bachelor of Computing or a Bachelor of Science with major in IT. I am going to University of Tasmania which is a regional area. Study is 3 years. Who knows what will be in the end of 3 years. Presumably I'll get a graduate temporary visa Then, If the visa rules stay the same as they are now I can do: 489 visa Skilled - Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional) - TAS government sponsors you if you have occupation on SOL, if you have occupation in CSOL it will sponsor you as off-list nominee. If this works I will almost surely get PR with the 190 Visa, TAS government also sponsors for this if you work there 3 months. 189 visa - Skilled Independent (subclass 189) - If can't find work in TAS (IMO with 489 visa I can do any sort of work, doesn't have to be in IT) but do find IT work somewhere else I can apply for this after 1 year. According to my calculation I should get at least 70 points with the current system. If I manage to get IELTS 8 it'll be 80 but that can be pretty hard AFAIK. Maybe also possible to do professional year but not sure if that year counts as part of my graduate visa and then I won't have enough time left to find work and work for a year (assuming graduate visa is 2 years) I know this is loads of info, but maybe some migration agent will see this and have enough experience to give me an estimate of my chances of getting PR. Thank you

    489 Visa help

    Hi Everyone, I have a slight confusion, my brother will be getting his permanent residency in May 2013 and will move to Melbourne. Can he straight away sponsor me for 489 visa as Melbourne comes under designated area category ? And I have also heard that there are limited number of seats for 489 family sponsored visa this year, if it is true could you please let me know how many seats are available ? Regards, AJ

    189 vis when 489 processing

    Hi, my 489 visa application is in processing status. At this point ,is it possible for me to create new profile in skill select and apply for 189 visa?I have got the invitation for 489 visa through skill select and after that my profile in in longed status so I cannot apply with my existing profile
  5. Hi We have just received a positive response from Vetassess but they only gave my OH 7 years work experience which means we have 50 points in total. We did want to apply for a 190 VISA but my OH doesnt want to do the IELTS test as he doesnt think he will pass (wont even try) so our other option is a 489 visa and to live in a designated area outside CBD. Having looked at the postcode list i think our best option is Mandurah (first choice) or Bunbury. The other thing is i have family in Joondalup so dont want to be too far from them so i can visit. Our last option is to wait until May 2013 and then my OH will have 8 years work experience and 55 points and we can apply for a 190 and live where we want. We are unsure what to do, while i dont want to wait until May to lodge our visa and then wait to see if it gets accepted. While no one can make our decision for us i appreciate any help and info you can give Thanks
