How to meet the visa requirements 489 Northern Territory

Recommended Posts

Hi to anyone reading this, 

 

I have successfully past my Skills Assessment for a Marketing Specialist and now I'm eager to lodge my EOI for the Northern Territory. 

In order to do this I now need a job offer. 

Unfortunately my current place of work doesn't extend to the NT and I have contacted all local recruitment agencies to Darwin who have said they won't look at my CV until I reside there. 

I've contacted various people on LinkedIn for advice but I'm still no further forward. 

 

Is this the end of the road or can anyone offer any further advice please?

 

Thank you in advance.

Some applicants have been known to visit NT to find the information they need to formulate a submission.

I’m new to this visa. My agent told me that we don’t need job offer / sponsorship in NT. It’s a territory sponcership. 

But what I’m seeing from your post is a little different.

Would you still need a job offer? 

How long have you worked for that role?

For my role I require a job offer. I’ve past my skills assessment confirming I have 6.8years experience in my role (after gaining my degree and the grace period). 

We would be applying for a 489, which requires me to have a job offer. It’s proving to be a challenge.

Hi
We’re here on 489 visas in the NT. Been here two years & just about to apply for permanent residency.
We arrived with no jobs & I never saw on any documentation or information that for a 489 you need a job offer. It’s State Sponsored not employee sponsored
Unless something has changed in two years but who’s advising you of that

States apply different criteria to different occupations or even individuals

 Exactly ... and the OP's specified occupation requires a job offer to get an NT nomination.

Maybe so in my two years here having met, chatted & managed quite a few people on 489 visas not one required a job beforehand for there NT visa

If you do then I won’t sugarcoat it but it will be virtually impossible. Never say never but if your occupation is marketing specialist then very difficult

Firstly Darwin is nothing like Melbourne or Sydney etc it doesn’t have large marketing, Tech or IT firms most of those roles are government

Now the NT government will not employ you full time contact on a 489 visa . Been there tried spoken to HR my partner worked for them plus other friends on 489 visas but only in either a fixed term contract or casual

To be blunt as an organisation they are terrible & as with most companies here have no idea or understanding of a 489 visa
Your not a citizen or permanent resident so they don’t get it

I don’t wish to sound defeatists but Darwin is unique & the majority won’t employ from overseas if they don’t need too & 95% here don’t . Plus the very little understanding of the visa itself
Recruitment agents are terrible in Darwin basically a waste of time .

If you had specific trade in mining or amazing HR or Health & Safety experience & Skills maybe you could get a job but a lot of occupations no chance from overseas in Darwin

Good luck though & apologies it may not be what you want to hear

Maybe you don't hang out with marketing specialists 😉 ?

Just wanted to find out how long your skills assessment results took to come out. I also intend on having one this week as a marketing specialist.

I’ve worked in this role for over 6 years (confirmed by positive skills assessment). Unfortunately for my role I do require a job offer as stipulated by the NT Government.

Great. I am still debating on whether i should go for marketing specialist or sales and marketing manager skills assessment as they are both on the NT occupation. Would anyone know which jobs are more readily available in NT between the two?

I have also gotten that info that one needs a job offer before they can get a Visa and my question has been is there a website where i can upload my CV for employers in NT to view?

G'day people,

 

just wanted to clarify some of my confusions, as I'm about to apply for 489 visa i have been living in Darwin, NT for about 7 months and working 5.6 months will be continued until 1 march 19. I m sharing an apartment with someone so in order to apply do i need to get an official Statutory declaration form signed by the lease holder(whom I m sharing with) and the JP too or a letter would work signed by the lease holder. and what other the documents i need to submit. 

any advise be much appreciated !!

Many thanks.:-)

Marketing specialist and sales and marketing manger are quite different skilled occupation with distinctly different skills assessment criteria. May I suggest that you check the VETASSESS website and the AIM website?

Thank you will verify with vetassess bt Aim he suits every item indicated. Hes been a sales and marketing manager for 9yrs. Im jus worried that management may restrict him to NT only. Thats where sales and marketing managers are wanted. Thanks will double check with Vetassess.
