Dear Friends

I am applying for Australian Immigration on my own (without any consultant help). I am University Lecturer (Mathematics) which is open in Darwin State (Northern Territory) under state sponsorship.

However, i dont know whether i should apply under visa category 190 or 489? Can anyone guide please?

If there is already a thread about this, please do guide me.

Regards

Puneet Gupta

Visa 190 is a permanent residency where as 489 is 4 years provisional visa which leads to the path of permanent residency visa visa 887 by meeting some requirements. Also, there are few cons in 489 compared to 190 such as not eligible for medicare and centerlink until to get the permanent residency.

If your points are enough for applying 190 go for it. Normally people go for 489 sue to lack of points or unable to meet 190 requirements like IELTS.

Do ask if you have any queries.
