489 VISA fAMILY SPONSOR

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

We have decided to go for the 489 family sponsored visa as we wish to live in Perth and if we went for state sponsorship we couldn't live where we want to go...

 

Agent has said it can take 2 years for the goverment to look at our application....is this true?

 

My job is on the list of required wokers Childcare Manager.

Skills assessment done Ilets done......

 

 

What are your thoughts?

Due to the limited number of family sponsored places for the programme year (4200) you could have a long wait for it - but as applications that have been Invited under Skillselect are to get priority over all applications that have been lodged before 1 July 2012.

 

DIAC have updated the allocation dates and have said that it should take 4 weeks to get a CO for Priority 4, 489 subclass - which is Family sponsored. http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/estimated-allocation-times.htm

http://www.immi.gov.au/about/charters/client-services-charter/visas/8.0.htm

 

From that information, you could initally lodge your EOI and see if you are invited with the family sponsored, if you are not invited you could change plan and lodge EOI and gain State nomination.

 

Are you much points short for the 190?

pass mark is 60 for both 190 & 489 - but you only get 5 points from State Nomination for 190, but you get 10 points for 489 State nomination or family sponsor.

Thank you I

have 50 without sponsorship I have sat the ielts test several times and CAN NOT get a 8 in the reading section so only get 10 for the English rather than the 20 if I had got 8's!!

Hubby is in IT but I can't claim 5 for him as he has no certificates just 16 years experiance........ so guess we are stuck with the 489

Any idea how I find out which Priority group I will be in?

 

If you apply through 489 Family Sponsor you would be priority 4, with State Nomination Priority 3.

 

Your application should be processed within 4 weeks for lodgement.

 

Has your EOI been lodged yet?
