Default State Sponsorship PR Visas - Obligations, Moving States and Other Issues

Hi,

I was curious to know one thing about State Sponsorship.

Suppose if the state of Western Australia sponsors my visa, does it mean I am tied to the state. after reading different threads on this forum, what i understand is one has to stay in his sponsored state for the period of 2 years.
but does it also mean we have to work in the same state for the period of 2 years. I guess you can go and work in some other states as long as you pay taxes in your state of residency. also all your bills should be directed towards your state of residency.

Can someone please throw some light on this?

no u hv to wrk in tht particular state and every 6 months you have to update the department about your whereabouts. From what I understand its a moral obligation. I am yet to read about them taking a legal action against those who are state sponsored and dont stay in teh same.

Default can I work in another state if I have been given state sponsorship by ACT?

Hi
It looks like I might actually have a chance at jobs in states other than the state which sponsored me under 176. Can anyone advice on whether I can apply and live elsewhere even though Canberra / ACT has sponsored me? I have an opportunity to interview for a role in Sydney tomorrow but I was planning to decline if I can't do so.
An early response from those who know will be great
Regards
Aurita

I think you can but only after 2 years. But I may be wrong. Would be interested to know the view of others.

Yep, royen is correct,

You will have to stay in your designated state for 2 years Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)

As far as I'm aware, once you have got your 176 you can't swap and change. But I may be wrong too

Hi Aurita:

You need to live and work in your sponsoring state for the first two years. That's one the main requirements of state sponsored visas versus a 175 GSM visa.

yes i know the standard requirement is for 2 years and no doubt you are all right. I am a little confused though since, as per some websites, you can get a special state release form issued by your sponsoring state if you can show extenuating circumstances. I will check further and see what I can do. thanks to every one for pitching in with your information. I have also been just told that they may have an opening in Australia in my current firm in Australia which would be mind blowing. All of you have been so terrific that one further request - please send some positive vibes my way so that it works out ..... if it does not work out, our normal job searches will anyway continue
regards, Aurita

It is NOT a condition of your 176 visa that you must stay in the sponsoring state for 2 years. Check your visa label and you will see that this requirement does not exist as a condition of the actual visa.

But it is a requirement set by the sponsoring State. In other words, when your state offered you sponsorship they did so on the basis that you agreed that you would live and work in that State for the first 2 years of your residence in Australia. So you have a moral/ethical obligation to fulfill that requirement.

If we don't follow the moral obligation, then we might have problems during RRV and citizenship. Dont expect immi to be lenient then.
