I not really qualified to speculate on jobs prospects in the different regions of WA are. You might be able to get more information on the West Australian Gov Website on Skilled MIgration
http://www.migration.wa.gov.au/Pages...Australia.aspx
The extension exists to give applicants the additional time to meet the PR visa requirements. If an applicant still fails to meet the requirement, i imagine the PR visa options become very difficult.

So other participants might have other options. I believe their might also be a skilled migration forum on the West Australian Gov website.

The 475 visa application is now closed, as of 1st of July of this year. All new applicants are required to apply through SkillSelect, and receive an invitation to apply.
The new temporary visa is the 489. This is a standard 4 year visa.

The 487 is also be phased out, and will be closed as of the January 2013.

Applicants already holding a 3 year 487, or 475 will have to apply also through SkillSelect if they are applying for the 1 year extension after the 1st of Jan 2013.

July 2012 saw many big changes to Australias General Skilled Migration plan.

You can find out more in this booklet.

Mr

Thanks but just wondering if you have an idea of regions in western Australia that most migrants prefer to live excluding Perth.

Would you really advice one who has this visa to migrate to Australia considering the risk of possibility of not getting the PR?

Working in a non regional area

Hi,

I have been granted a 475 visa (in July 2011) sponsored by Orana region in NSW.

I am the main applicant but my spouse (who is a dependent) has got job in Sydney (Campbelltown) which is a non-regional area.

But, I plan to live and work in a regional area in order to comply with the subsequent PR application.

Therefore, will it effect our subsequent PR application or will my spouse's visa be cancelled if he works in a non-regional area. ??

Appreciate your early response.

Thanks.

Hello Kelechibe!
I am also planning to go there on May 4-18 with my family. Chemical Engineer, 475 visa as well.
Please let me know if you know a cheap accomodation / room sharing for my husband (for him only) who will extend his stay from May18-June3.

Hope to get in touch with you on your first entry experience.
Good luck!

I have same 475 and visited WA in last october and november, its really hard to get a good job so be prepared for doing some odd jobs like hands on kitchen or hospital or a security officer to start your life, then keep finding and struggling, Mandurah and bunbury are the best places to live, even you get a PR you will love to live these calm and quiet places in WA.
Best of Luck
