489 Invitation COVID 19 uncertainty

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Unfortunately I was made redundant this week due to the current situation and soon after I received an invitation to apply for state sponsorship! Talk about typical timing! I know that you need to provide proof of ongoing employment for at least 12 months. I was wondering what are the chances that the case officer will allow me some time to find another job? Thanks

Sorry to hear that. It is an uncertain and stressful time. The last I heard immigration were taking Covid-19 into consideration and were allowing extensions over the 60 days to apply. I would submit an online enquiry and ask for an extension. 

What state have you been nominated by?

Hi AmyL,

Thanks for the advice! It is for QLD. This is the 491 state invitation from BSMQ which I believe is the process before you get actually invited by immigration to apply for the visa. The email said I had 14 days to supply for all documentation which includes proof of ongoing employment for the next 12 months.
