Hi Experts,

Can any of you please list down the practical problems of a 489 visa, would be very helpful. I have submitted the EOI and due to lack of points I have to opt for 489 regional sponsored to SA. Getting very skeptical :(.

Hi Roja,

I have also applied for 489 SA and in a bit of vacillation now. I have seen some articles wrote by SA authors who were cursing Govt for not generating enough jobs and inviting new emigrants.

I could have attempted another IELTS but based on my agent advice I have already lodge the application. Its not that I didn't know about SA situation before I went for it, but I am all for this risk.

Lets see how it goes :)

HI,
I am also in the same boat. Case officer allocated on 09th Dec 15 - GSM Adelaide - 489, South Australia. Fingers crossed.

1. We need to live ins SA for 2 years before apply PR
2. Of course need to prove Full time employment of 12 months cumulative
3. I was told we are allowed to do any full time job to count towards this 12 months

It took you almost a year to get a job? Are the job scenes still bad in SA?
How do you like it there, any regrets?

Thank you,
