Visa 489 Extension

Hi all,

i have been granted the subclass 489 Skilled Regional Sponsored visa which has an expiry date of April 2017 and of course has a condition attacehd that i need to live/work in a regional area for 2 years in order to fulfill the permanent visa conditions.

The situation is I couldn't move to Australia back then due to some work/family reasons so i was wondering if i would be able to extend this visa when i move to Australia next month so would be February 2016 or what are the possible solutions I have then?

I am looking urgently to reading from you!

Thank you in advance!

No, it cannot be extended. You will need to look for other options to apply for a PR visa.

Hi Maggie,

may you please tell me what are the other options I may have to apply for PR till my 489 expire, or should I start the whole process for visas 189/190 from scratch?

Thank you for your help!
