I am planning to move by the mid of June. As much as airline line preference is concerned, i'll prefer the airline that will land directly in adelaide instead i've to land in any ohter city of Oz first and then have to take connecting flight for adelaide. I have not contacted travel agents yet. Hopefully, i'll finalize it in next week and will surely respond you. However, as per my knowledge, currently, Cathy Pacific is the only airline that is available in Pakistan and has its operations for Adelaide but its Adelaide route flight is only available from Karachi.

Thanks Jamil. This timeline looks to be smooth but in actual, it was not that smooth. Actually my journey started back in 2008. Then i've to waste my first ACS and straight 7 IELTS result due to the continuous changes in Oz immigration policies. In my 2nd ACS, i did not get the required occupation code, then did not get the required IELTS result and so on.......... But i am thankful to my friends who just keep me motivated and i ended up to go for 475 instead of 175 visa.

All is well that ends well. Hopefully, everything will go smooth from here. I am thankful to Almightly for all He has granted to me.

"All is well that ends well "...I hope this words would remain same for both of us :) as I am really tensed about the 1 year full time job requirment.May Allah be with us for the rest of the journey there.It is really nice to hear about your struggle , that is really encouraging.
Lets hope for the best for the upcoming life.:)

I am from lahore. There is no airline that will go directly from Lahore to Adelaide. However, a combination of flights can serve the purpose, like,

Thai Airline from Lahore to Bangkok and then take connecting flight of Malaysian Airline from Bangkok to Adelaide with a stop in Kualalampur.

can anyone tell me that, is 1 year full-time study is equivalent of 1 year full-time work for fulfill the 475 visa requirement?

"You and any accompanying secondary applicants, must agree to live and work or study in a Specified Regional Area of Australia."

"Note: The main applicant can study while they hold this visa, however they are expected to be looking for, and engaging in, full time work. Any study should be incidental to full time work."
Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 475)
