Default TR in Australia

Hi, I'm 31 years old married expat who wants to migrate to Australia. Following are my points for different categories I earned so far.
- Age - 30 points
- Bachelor of Computer Science degree - 15 points
- Working Experience - 5 points
- IELTS 6 in each - no points

All together I have 50 points but insufficient. So my migration consultants asked me to apply state sponsorship and earn 10 points.
Then I have 60 points and they also told that I can easily apply for a Temporary residence visa. With that visa according to them, I have to spend two years in Australia and I can take Permanent residence visa at the end of the two years. Also, they assured me that I can live anywhere in Australia after discussing with the sponsored state authorities.

+ Can I live outside the state which sponsored me?
+ Is it really easy to get the Temporary residence and how long will it take to get that?
+ Is it easy for me to find a job with the TR visa?

Please help me to understand this process since I have less knowledge on this matter.

i don't have knowledge to answer your questions.. but as per my friends in Aus, it is quite hard to run a family with TR without a good job. how many times you have tried IELTS? can't u increase it to 7.0 and add 10 marks.? (don't ask mine's as i am also stuck in it - writing 6.5 for 2 times)

The invitations are depends on your occupation code.

Some occupation required 60 to be invited and some are required 70 or even 75. You need to analyze your job code and the number of invitations per round.

Agents always talk in positive way.

What your agent has proposed is a 489 state-sponsored visa (Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489)). On this visa you can only live in specified regional areas (basically, anywhere except Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast or Perth).

It's a 4-year visa and is a pathway to an 887 permanent visa. To qualify for an 887, you must live at least 2 years in a regional area and must have full-time work (in any occupation) for at least 12 months before you can apply.

Yes, you can apply. The minimum s ore for PR is 60.

But some applicants will have higher scores for same job code with 79, 80 and so on. In that condition if you have only 60 points your invitation will take longer time.

For IT field there is always long 'Q'.
Visit dibp website and check the number of invitations for your job code and the points. If your job code has very less number of invitations then you can wait for couple of months and then apply EOI.

If lot of invitations for your job code then you can apply EOI asap and try to improve your score in language test and also your experience will add to get 8years.

Edit: Since you ready mentioned that you are in IT stream, you can apply for EOI and try to improve your points by English language test.

Try PTE than IELTS. Hope you aware that IELTS 7 = PTE 65

No need to wait for couple of months as i misunderstood with other thread.

Thanks for the reply "Maggie-May24". It seems that I have to live in "regional and low population-growth metropolitan areas" with that visa. So this may be difficult if I cannot find a job there. I have a 2 years old baby and my husband who wish to go together with me. Although it is easy to get the visa, it seems risky to live in such areas since the job availability. What is your idea on that? Thanks again for the reply.

Thanks for your replies. No idea about dibp website. Do I need to have a login for that to view the invitation list? What is your idea about living in regional and low population-growth metropolitan areas after applying TR under 489 visa category?
