EOI Far South NSW

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

    We've recently had a positive skills assessment back from ACS so now onto submitting our EOI, has anyone submitted an EOI  for a 489 Far South NSW?  I'm trying to gauge the length of wait we're in for!

    TIA

    I am an IT Professional also. I decided not to go for the NSW 489.
     

    1. There are no IT jobs in those areas

    2. Apparently the chance of being invited is very low.

    We don't have an alternative.... we're open minded to alternative employment.  What are you going for if not this option?

    190 in NSW could be an option?

    July is the new financial year and the immigration system "resets". It will mean the points, jobs etc will change so new opportunities will probably open. There is a chance that the points requirements for the 489 for South Australia will go down. The good thing about the 489 for South Australia is the whole state counts as a rural area including Adelaide.

    Thanks, we'll see what transpires, I'm open-minded!  When we spoke to our immigration agent a couple of months ago 489 Far South NSW was the only option for us but if SA opens up I'd prefer that! The job situation does concern me but I'm trying to remain positive!  Let's see what July brings!.

    How many points do you have? (excluding the 10 added for state sponsorship?)

    50... We need to wind the clock back a few years to sneak a few more points!

    Ah I see. That is why you can't go for the 190 for NSW. I have 60 points (before any added for the state sponsorship).
