Hi my fellow FMs,

I am PR holder (190 with Victorian State Sponsorship), I am living and working in regional Vic too. My question is can I sponsor my wife for a 489 family sponsored stream(I know the partner visa stream, but that's a costly option right now for me I feel :/).
My wife is here on a visitor visa which will get over in May 18 first week.
1. I am trying to see if this can be done.
2. I know she will have to get her VETASSES skill certification and do IELTS or PTE.
3. Do I have to wait for an invite similar to 180 or 190 PR visa once the EOI is lodged for 489 F/S pathway?

Thank you

For the sc. 489 visa your sponsor can be your or your partner's:
  • parent or step-parent
  • child or step child
  • brother or sister (including adoptive or step brother or sister)
  • aunt or uncle (including adoptive or step aunt or uncle)
  • niece or nephew (including adoptive niece or nephew)
  • grandchild or first cousin

A partner visa will be the correct visa for your wife, unless an eligible relative can sponsor her for a sc. 489 visa.
Thank you very much Nick.
