Hi All,

In my visa application process, my husband is Primary applicant and his profile is in CSOL. Unfortunately now his profile is out of the List in all states of Australia (Marketing Specialist).

But in case of Northern Territory they offer invitations to such applicants for subclass-489 visa (Temporary Working Visa), so what u think, is it good option ?
Anyone have got this kind of invitation from NT?

My husband's Skill assessment is already positive, Have Overall 7 band in IELTS and he have also filed EOI .

Please suggest me any other way, if you are aware about......

Hello Manalee,

Well 489 visa is 4 years temporary visa. In order to qualify for PR through 489 in the future, your husband must live in that region for atleast 2 years and work full time for atleast 1 year. Then he can apply PR (887 Visa) with less fee (Approx 400$) and even without IELTS :israel:. Rules may change anytime, beware. These are criteria as of now.

Secondly, getting a job in a region is not an easy task when getting a job in hot cities like Sydney/Melbourne itself is a bit challenging. I do not know about NT, however, NSW regions are a bit expensive. But, your husband can work in any field in this visa, but it has to be full time. I believe, 489 has much restrictions about spouse thing, I don't know much about that, you need to research out.

He can proceed if he is very much eager to go and if there is no other alternatives. However, he should be able to face these challenge if any he come across, of course, there is no gain without pain :D:mad:

Better advice is, research out from google about NT regional places you wish to apply, cost of living, weather, jobs, transports etc and even you can ping some Indians living there and ask for details. I did the same when I was researching possibilities and got good insight which indeed served as an essential ingredient in my decisions.

Also, Manalee, I have searched this thread for you, just dropin a message there, seniors can give more insight on this profession.

Placed EOI as in? For which visa? 189?

Thank you very much for your valuable reply.....

But the thing is we are not able to apply anywhere in Australia with this profession, coz it shows "closed" in all states for the time.....?
How much time we can wait ????
Instead NT is the only States where hopes are alive.....

I will definitely search as you said....

But please keep me updated if you got any information about 489 State sponsorship visa, From NT.

Thanks a lot,
Manalee

Hello again,

Closed occupations, well, can not comment, as and when there are requirements and demands, perhaps they open? That too would be for short time, as competition is very high.

I don't look for NT, as software professions are not there as well :mad:

If I come across any, I will post you.

By the way, what is the EOI you were talking about you have already placed?

Another alternative you have Manalee, i.e scoring IELTS 8 in all modules which fetches your hubby 20 points ;) :)

Best regards,
JR

Thanks Again,
I think, No Hopes then....!

We have submitted EOI for 190/189 but at that time his profession was in.

now we were planning to edit same EOI for 489.

Thanks,
Manalee

Oh, I am very sorry to hear that, don't worry Manalee.

There should be requirements in the future, they should be opening (Like how we are affirmative that software professions they open in NSW ;) in the future, atleast in July 2014).

By the way, yes, if NT is the only option and you guys don't want to miss it, please go ahead without thinking much :) In parallel research about the region well too :)

Best regards,
JR

They will respond to you and will give a timeline of 3 weeks. My friend got his approval close to 4 weeks, good enough.

hi all,

I got 489 visa (Family Sponser) and was looking the way to get pr after 2 years. I got option of 887 visa through which i can get PR.

My Quest.:

1) If there any chance in coming next 2 years about the closing of this 887 visa or changing of any rule of this 887 visa?

2) What if? this 887 visa gets closed by government, then what will be the options for the visa holder 489?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Hello Msandhu,

Let us just hope 887 visa will not be gone as an option, I will pray that it will wait for us after 2 years! I am aiming for that as well!

Cheers,

I lodged my 489 state sponsored visa application on 25 July, 2015. My CO has been allocated on September 15, 2015 but until now I haven't heard back from DIBP. It's been around seven months that I lodged the application. I emailed CO on January 13th but haven't got any response yet. Can anybody in the forum suggest me what the reason could be for this delay? Your suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks

Dear Friends,

Please guide me. I want to apply for NT. Bit there is a requirement of financial capability to show. Is it easy or difficult to get NT nomination? Why less people are applying for NT?

Hi Sushilsk/Preax

Did you received invitation from the NT for visa 489? I'm applying for 190 but I think they will issue 489 because I have no job offer in the NT. Not sure if in this case the processing time is 4 weeks or 10 weeks.
