I wanted to ask you and everyone who’s waiting for the visa that if you get a visa grant of 489, are you able to live in any regional of Australia or just nsw ? Because I have been told that we can live any regional in Australia ? Which profession did you apply in ? Cook or chef ?

You can live in any regional area of that state that sponsored you. You can't live in a regional area of another state.

You are kinda right about other Aus states, but same is not true for NSW. As i remember, NSW has 8 different regional areas with their own occupation list and requirements. If you get invited by one NSW region, you have to live in that particular region for 2 years. 


Occupation - Chef,  State - NSW, Points - 65 ( Age - 30, Edu - 15, Aus Edu - 5, English - 10, State - 5 )

VetAssess Applied - 10/06/18, Positive Skill Assessment -  15/10/18 EOI NSW  190 - 23/10/18, Invitation -  15/11/18, Nomination Applied - 19/11/18,   Nomination Approved- 20/11/18, Visa Lodged - 27/11/18, Health exam - 19/12/18, Grant -Awaiting

I am not sure about other states, but NSW regions give you release letter if you don't find job in reasonable  time. What that means is you can move to other regional areas. Please consult with migration agent before making any decision, as it can come back to bite you considering current politics around regional Visas

I am a landscaper and was nominated by Northern Territory however I have been offered a job in Adelaide in SA which I have accepted. My visa grant is regional to Australia not just the Northern Territory so this is allowed.

Hi everyone. Here is my time line:

  • March 6: 489 application lodged, SA state sponsorship.
  • April 10: CO allocated, med checks requested.
  • May 1st: med check results submitted.
  • Aug 28: additional details requested, including form 80 to be filled in. Time to send documents: 28 days.
  • Sept 2nd: all documents sent.
  • Sept 21: confirmation received from CO, no other documents are required. The status changed to "This application is currently being assessed. The department may contact the applicant if further supporting documentation is required".

We are now (in)patiently waiting 😛 There's a fair chance for good news before Christmas. 🤞

We've provided the requested docs (further proof of work, statements from the bank during that time) and since then, the CO contacted us again requesting updated police checks. Fingers crossed really. Today is my birth day, it would make for an awesome present! 🙂

Hello, All. 

Sorry for stupid question. 

I got invitation 13 dec. Doing application now. I am on the page of attaching docs. I need to do police check, and official translations of national ID. I read somewhere that I shoould apply in 2 weeks from invitation but it is written in the invitation that is 60 days(489 NT). So should I do payment and submit in 2 weeks and the rest docs  can be attached later when it will be ready? Or it is better to prepare all. attach and go to next and pay, submit? In this case it will be later than 2 weeks...

I read somehwre that payment may take 3 days, so and it may be later than 2 weeks from invitation. 

I just stuck with 2 weeks, maybe it was for another type of visa. 

Confused

and Is it required to show all relatives even they are not immigration with me? I should fill form 80 for each person even if they non-migration units. and can I not mention some of them at all.

60 days if you have received a skill select invite, think NSW wants their 190 application in 14 days.
