South Australia Subclass 190/489 applications (July 2018)

Recommended Posts

@Jonno1981 I received 189 invitation today. I’m not sure if I still need to wait for state nomination or apply for 189 visa. Also, what occupation did you nominate and how long it took to get an invitation ?. 

Thanks

Congratulations!!! 

If you’ve received an invite for 189 then no state nomination required, simply apply for the 189.

My occupation is Lab Manager, invite was immediately after I got state sponsorship for the 489.

We lodged EOI 190 for South Australia 13 weeks ago (end of august). Their website says processing time is 10 weeks. If it was a definite no, would we know by now?! And if the occupation is full, are there ever an extra invitations sent out? Please help!

Have applied directly to the state as well as submitting your expression of interest?

I would contact them. It looks me 13 weeks and it was the busiest time of the year for them (at the time their posted processing time was 20 weeks).

Hi there,

we finally got granted the 489 visa for 4 years after we lodged the application in Dec 2017. The document states that the stream is first provisional. I know provisional means that after 2 years we can apply for permanent residency (visa subclass 887) if we meet the requirements for PR. I just hope there is not a second provisional stream as the migration laws change every year. What really confuses me is the following visa condition:

"8539 - While the visa holder is in Australia they cannot live, study or work outside of a regional or low growth metropolitan area. This means anywhere in Australia except in:
• Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central Coast in New South Wales • Brisbane and the Gold Coast in Queensland
• Perth and surrounding areas in Western Australia • Melbourne in Victoria • the Australian Capital Territory."

I thought we can just work in SA but as per this condition we are allowed to work in whole Australia now.

I called the Immigration Office today and the woman did not know and suggested I should contact the SA state regarding this condition. We are going to stay here in Adelaide anyways and Keep working in SA only but I thought they could be a bit more professional regarding this type of issues. I will keep ringing and annoying them with my questions as our residency in this Country depends on how well informed we are.

Good luck to all of you!!!

Hi,

I am new to this forum, I have applied for 489 SA in Dec 2018 and waiting for the grant. I saw there is a condition mentioned in your visa and wanted to ask you is there a condition which is mentioned that the dependents cannot make the first entry before the primary applicant?

What is the 1st ETD for the visa?

 

Regards,

HP

Hi JetBlast,

In that case I should be getting the outcome by end of this week. How long did you wait before getting an ITA ?

Thanks

It should be imminent. There have been some public holidays in South Australia recently so please take this into account.

I am not sure what you mean by ITA?
