If you applied January with no case officer contact to date. Then get ready for good news any day! Good luck!!

Mine just took just over 3 months from application to grant. But it was a very simple application as a single applicant. Good luck to everyone still waiting

Are there rules etc that you have to fly directly into the state that you received your nomination from? Looking at flying into perth to buy a vehicle then driving it to darwin, my 489 is for NT.

Is there a special reason to buy a vehicle from Perth?

Hi.

Can someone pls advise me in subclass 489 - tasmania. Once grant received we can work in any occupation or it has to be in the nominated occupation. I m asking this from a subclass 887 perspective as I don't want to mess up with that as it is a hope for pr.

Also I m unable to find any information about above query on dibp too.

The information is on the dibp website. You can work in any occupation. Heres the link https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/887-?modal=/visas/supporting/Pages/887/eligibility-living-requirement.aspx

@Sagga  as far as my knowledge goes its not a mandatory requirement to work in the same field as your occupation and it wont jeopardize your future prospects of getting a PR. This is what I got to know from my agent for SA state nomination. All the best. 

When are you making the move? Do you also have the option of working in other low population areas or have to stick to Tasmania only?

I'm flying out in a few weeks to Darwin. Not 100% about staying in other areas/states but I'm going to stick to the NT regardless for the foreseeable future.

@woody2709 we are doing our first landing next week and will have a look at some suburbs, schools etc.. We plan to make our final move in Q4 later this year. Job hunt is going to be challenging so a bit apprehensive about that.

What are your plans like?

I have a question on state nominated 489.. in order to be eligible for a PR one has to show at least 1 year full time employment in the fist 2 years so can one:

- own and run a business as a partner?

- be a franchise owner?

Would that be considered as full time employment?

 

Thank you.
