What are the prospects for 475 visa? your input please.

Hi,

I know the questions that I am going to ask may sounds redundant, but I hope those who can contribute could help as I am one of those did not engage agent for application submission and have submitted 475 (sponsored by cousin in Adelaide) in Aug 2009 all by my own.

Unsertand this is a temp visa, which i need to stay in SA for 2 years out of 3 years and I must work at least 12 months out of the 2 years stay. I can only apply for PR after 2nd year.

Questions:

1) Are the employers in SA open with the idea of employing who are on temp visa?

2) I read from somewhere that I would need to ask employer to sponsor after I am qualify to apply for PR? Does it mean that I have to be employed when I have stayed 2 years in SA before submitting my application? or how would it work.

3) I will be there with my husband and a 5 year old boy (hopefully visa is granted by then). Heard from an migration agent previously that SA government provide free education for children (except paying for some misc fees). Is that true?

4) How easy/difficult for a temp visa holder (475) to secure a housing loan or even car loan? Has any of 475 holder has manage to secure a loan, may be you could share your experience?

5) Is it advisable to buy a property there (FIRB approved) before migrating? Are we only restricted to buy appartment or we can buy landed as long as they are FIRB approved.

6) PCC - Is it compulsary for all applicants to submit PCC? both my husband and I have stayed in both UK and Malaysia for more than 12 months before. Could we request it now and send to DIAC?

7) Medical report - I have made a mistake by getting whole family to do medical report shortly after launching the application. May I know what is the validity of the medical report? do we have to re-do the medical checkout?


8) Lastly, am I allow to switch form 475 to 176 visa if my 12 months of work experience (out of 24 months) is not from the same job but both are in SOL previously? (9 months as librarian and 3 months as IT professional) shen I submitted the application? consulted 1 agent before and was told that I must work i n the same job for 12 month if I want to get state sponsorship. is that right?

Thanks so much to all of you in advance.

regards,
Michelle

For an online application all docs are uploaded...no need to send them by post...

well u can stay in sydney but remember that 475 has conditions
1. Stay in regional area for 2 years( in ur case WA's)
2. work for 1 year atleast during this staty in regional area.

if u stay long in Sydney u will make it difficult for u to meet these obligations.

Hi ,

I was recently granted 475 visa (Victoria) and currently in melbourne .
I have one question related to work obligation of 1 yr . I am currently having tough time getting job in my profile . Can i work in some other job ?.

Does that 1 year work obligation says i need to work only in the nominated occupation? . Please advice .

Hi imrancrest,
I don't know the answer but I wanted to ask you- are you saying getting an ICT job in Melbourne is turning out to be tough for you? Are the jobs available less?

That's not a good news. Keep us posted. Also, normally I hear that one has to wait for close to 2 months for a job.

Its not necessary to get job in ur profession. u can do any work including self-work. the only thing is that u shud be working 35 hrs a week to call it a work day.

More over keep searching job.,... ppl take 2-3 months to get their field job.. prepare ur CV as per the Job advertised . whch means every cv will be different then prvs job cv...this will help

That is for People who are in Cat-5 SS waiting since 2009 & still not assigned any CO.

I believe u r Cat-3 WA SS 475, which is usually 4weeks from Application date.

If your Med & PCC was requested by CO and case is not sent for further Checks, Grant can come anytime after u complete submission of MED & PCC. Generally Online is faster

Cheers!
