482 TSS then 189

Recommended Posts

So I’ve got a job offer and will be moving over to Australia in the next few months on a TSS 482 medium term stream visa. 

We also lodged an EOI for a 189 a few months ago. Based on our points and length of time in the queue so far we anticipate receiving an invite in the next couple of months (assuming occupation remains on the list!).

We therefore plan to move on the 482 with me as the primary applicant, then apply for a 189 with my partner as the primary applicant. 

Anyone else done this? Know much about doing this?

It is fairly common

So should mean no issues in doing this then? 

Job offer and 482 means we can go prob 12months before we could if wait solely for 189. 

Trying to understand what negatives there might be? (Apart from have to work for employer which I’m hoping all is fine!)

As you point out yourself, just because you apply for  a 189 doesn't mean you'll get it. Even if you have enough points and fulfil all the criteria, it's still a lottery.  So make sure your employer is paying your air fares and shipping costs there and back, (which they should do for a temp contract), so even if your 189 is rejected, it won't have cost you a fortune, and you'll have had the chance for an adventure in Australia.

If you have children, check out whether you'll have to pay school fees in your destination state. There are restrictions on  buying a house but while you're on the temp visa, you're unlikely to want to do that anyway.
