Thanks Dibongo for all your help and advice.

 

Wishing you the best of luck down under, hopefully we will hear something soon. CO got back to me and said my medical was with the MOC and they were just waiting for it to be sent back, but not sure how long that would take (they found slight scarring on my lung????- Never had anything wrong with my lungs, maybe a chest infection from years ago. who knows.

 

Take care and enjoy your adventure

Hi, I've used a firm local to me called Barnes of Lincoln . Pay them when they pick the stuff up.

Very good quote and my inlaws used them to Perth and sister in law to Melbourne- both very happy.

Hi, hope everything goes ok for both of you, shame about the X-ray but at least you know it's being looked at.

Dear All:

 

I am feeling so much frustrated as I haven't got EOI invitation yet. I have submitted EOI on 24 September'12 under 489 family sponsored visa subclass; My points is now 60 & occupation is under SOL 2. I have heard that I will be invited once Skill select finishes inviting occupation under SOL 1 but could not find the source of information & validity. Please share your views in this regard & chances for me to get the invitation including your source of information.

 

Thanks

I was under the impression that if you were on the CSOL (sol2) then you couldn't get a 489 family sponsored visa, our occupation is on the CSOL, and we have had to go state sponsored ........

That is correct, if we could have been family sponsored we would have done that, but my wife's occupation is CSOL not SOL.

Just waiting on my 489, submitted via agent who front loaded all documents on the 19th Nov 12. Agent called me few week ago saying case officer etc all ok, only issue was CO was insisting on points advice from TRA. What a joke, already done my skillsassessments which were fine, apparently points advice is at the discretion of the CO. my agent was contesting but was holding the process up. In the end I've had to pay another $300, rip off for something that is of no value just a money making scheme.


Arrived in WA on my WHV 27/06/12... Applied 489 WA 19/11/12.... Waiting!

OK. Totally lost and you've probably answered this already - but I'd really appreciate any help!

My sister is willing to sponsor me and lives in Queensland. I think my occupation is on the CSOL only though and I would only get state sponsorship from WA. Does that matter if I have family sponsorship, or should I just not go down this route?

Thanks for any suggestions in advance!

Hate to tell you this, but if your occupation is on the CSOL, you cannot get a family sponsor, you can only be sponsored by the state. This means you have to live by the restrictions the State enforces for the 489 visa i.e. you have to live in a regional area. We are in the same position as you, and we have had to do this. If you go onto DIAC and put in 489 visa and then go to the bottom of the page you will find booklet 6, this will show you all the postcodes you have to live in.

Hi,

This thread's been very quiet for some time. Any visa grands or progress recently. I've applied for 489 on 31 st Jan and acknowledged the receipt by DIAC. Medicals and police checks were already front loaded. No CO assigned or no communication yet. Anybody facing a similar scenario.

Pl share.

My OH hasn't done a points test either, like u said it's at your discretion, we thought the same you have to up load everything to prove your work experience, time in employment etc etc anyway, my hubby submitted his 489 on the 6th march 2013 so just waiting for a CO, hope we get a nice 1 soon......Good Luck!

Hello,

we received SA state sponsorship and invited to apply for a 489 visa on 8 March. Our Visa application went in on 19 March, just a waiting game now. Hopefully not long to wait, fingers crossed ! Good luck to all those starting or nearing the end of the visa process.

Ive found this thread really helpful as 489 is our only option thats what we will be applying for as soon as TRA approval is granted. TRA submitted 22 feb 2013 cant wait to get past this stage so we can submit an EOI. We are hoping to be in perth within a six month period as our son turns 18 at end of august. Am i being realistic in this timescale?
