Hi,

I have received my SS from SA but I'm finding it difficult to get a job in SA presently. Is it possible that I can work for a year or 2 in another state and then return to my sponsored state and continue the 2 year compulsory stay.

Kindly advise.

Hi moving to adelaide,

If you do a search on the forum I think a similar question was answered by an agent before...... Sorry I can't remember the answer.

Regards,
Karen

I don't believe you can do that, however, you should give the SA gov migration office a call and ask them. They will be able to give you a definitive answer.

hi
if you have been in Au for a while and can prove you are not able to find a job since the time you have came, they do give you a waiver. as mat suggested, speak to the concerned department and they might be able to guide you.

someone I know was on regional sponsored, he was in adelaide for 3-4 months desperately looking for work but did not manage anything, he then spoke to the department, they asked him to fill in a form and let him move on provided he stayed in regional area in another state. he is now in Victoria and has a job :)

wish you luck

and do keep us posted so that others can benefit as well from the info

cheers

I think its best to contact the govt office and let them know about your situation...

Hi Anjali,
I have still applied to regional visa as I do not have enough points for PR visa (175/176 Dance123 ) :)-
Dance123 - can you please reply this post with your job search exp in SA and VIC and success.

I was planning to PM you but better if you post it here so that it would be helpful info for others also.

Thanks,
Ajay

Hi Ajay,

Well the 475 is a regional sponsored visa. The Aussie govt is only giving visas for regional areas so that more ppl come and settle in regional areas. Cities are already too crowded. Hell even Adelaide is getting a lot more crowded as compared to last year. Now the only way to move would be to come to Adelaide, apply for jobs, and after sufficient no of job rejections you could apply for a transfer and only if the authorities are satisfied will you get the transfer. Mind you it will still be a regional area and not Sydney or Melbourne. Short cuts dont usually work over here.Btw i thought a senior expat should know that? Aren't you in OZ yet?

I really don't know if the rules have changed or not but when I applied, it was a moral requirement not a legal one (as I can see you read my thread about my experience). Regarding job, can't comment because it depends on (but not limited to) some common factors:

- How well can you speak English?
- What experience have you got?
- What expertise can you bring to the company? etc. etc. etc. It really depends on the employer at the end of the day.

Once you get your visa and if you can't find job, the best bet is to speak to the sponsoring state.

Hope it helps.

Thanks Dance123,

I have read your post "Life from 475 to 887." It is still a moral obligation.
May I know what is your profession ? Is it IT ? I am looking for specific info abt IT .
Thanks,
Ajay

Hai Anj,

I have got SA 489 visa on 17 Dec 2013. I am planning to come to Adelaide in march 2014. I am from IT background. I have got 5 years of exp in IT. All I am looking is if at all I dont get software job in Adelaide, then I will plan to Regional Victoria or New South Wales or Queensland. I think Regional areas in VIC< NSW or QLD are better than Adelaide. Please let me know what proof I need to show to government, so that they will consider my movement.

Thanks in advance.
Sree
