QLD visa application (190 skillsets / success rates)

Recommended Posts

Hello all

We are a family looking to relocate from UK to QLD (gold coast) ideally next year.

Considering a 190 visa under the 'project and programme 511112' skilltype but also have experience in both the 'mgmt consulting 224711' and 'ICT Project mgmt 135112'.   

I have 20+ programme mgmt experience hence 511112 but see its a tier 2.  Is tier 1 better or does it not matter?

My wife and I are both 40yrs old (old for immigration standards!) + 2 young kids but only I will look for work initially.

I see alot of updates re very long wait times but seem more NSW related.  Anyone have experience of QLD wait times and success rates for the above skill.types recently?

Is there a quicker option whereby we come.out on a temp visa (12 months), gain work and then apply for PR when employed in Oz??  May be too old for that one...

Any help greatly recieved,

The whole process of getting a 189 or 190 visa can easily take a year, even pre-Covid. Currently, unless you are on the Priority skills list, it’s unlikely your application would even be looked at while the borders are closed.

QLD are not looking at offshore applicants at the moment.  There’s not enough information provided to sensibly comment on the occupation choices, but I’d doubt they could all be correct.
