Anyone who has lodged for 489 Visa (state-sponsored)?? Let's try and assess the timelines here for grant. We lodged for 489 visa on 04th Sept and got a CO assigned on 04th Oct who asked us to upload PCCs. We did that on 11th Oct. No revert on grant after that. Anyone else here??

Hi mate I need bit information regarding 489 visa . How much experience we need to lodge the file.

Hi there! you would need minimum 3 years of work experience to qualify for mere 5 points under employment category. A minimum of 60 points is required to apply for 489 visa.

Hi - congrats on lodging Visa. If all your documents are uploaded, you might not even have a CO allocated. Might get a direct grant - which can vary from 4 weeks to 6 months, depending upon the documentation. Now you can just relax as theres nothing much you can do till Grant comes. The existing timeline says "75% of the applications for 489 visa getting processed in 5 months" while 90% of the applications getting processed in 6 months. So you can expect a TAT of this long. However, if you are lucky and your case is a clear-cut one, you can also get a grant within 1-2 months. Have heard that happening too for many immigrants. All the best. Let's stay in touch on this thread to update one another of grant news. Take care.

If he has filed an EOI so far, the response will depend upon several factors: a) vacancy of community worker job code in the state b) overall points should be competitive c) documentation is complete and proper. It is not necessary that state nomination comes your way. A superior score in English competency always has an advantage - i.e. 20 points. 

All the best to your friend! Let's hope for the best.

Honestly, I don't have much idea if diabetes should be a hindrance to your VISA grant or not. You can post the question on a separate thread to get inputs from others on this. As far as I know, it shouldn't be a major hurdle unless there is something serious that comes out in the medical report. If you have already filed for VISA, you can rest assure that diabetes will not be a spoiler.

Many thanks friend. Yes they only consider Threat Disease such are TB HIV and other communicable diseases. But my intuition thought like that. Even the doctor who did the medical check said it will not be an issue. Hope for the best and looking for the positive grant soon.

Thankfully, I am past the EOI stage. Received a revert on positive state sponsorship. Applied for Visa on 04th Sept, CO contacted on 04th Oct for additional documents. Response to EOI can even take a year. I have heard of applicants receiving positive EOI response after a year or year and half. So, the only suggestion is to wait patiently. Also, if you can, suggest him to give PTE or IELTS again for a superior score as that will be really good for him. He might get a positive response to EOI then! All the best

Hi , I am from India. I have worked in Australia before for 4 years as a Geologist (Oil & Gas) under 457 visa but I never applied for PR. Now I am in India and I am 40 yrs old and now I want to move to Australia. I had submitted EOI for 489 visa in April 2017 but still haven't got any response!  Should I submit application for 190 Visa or continue waiting for 489 visa? I m having 65 points. My Ielts score is 7.5 and it will expire in a year time.

Hi Ashutosh. You can submit multiple EOIs - it is legitimate. If 190 has opened up for your job code, please feel free to apply For EOI. Dont wait for 489. You never know if its coming or not. You have 65 points with state sponsorship or without?

Ok, great. Congrats. All the best for grant. You can expect 489 visa by April. As per Skill Select, 75 percent applications are getting processed within 5 months.

Diabetes won't be an issue.But if there is some sort of organ failure due to diabetes like kidney, heart, eyes then it might be an issue.
