190 or 489 visa survey questions


Just wondering if anyone knows - what kind of questions do they ask you on those settlement surveys? I'm going to apply for 190 ACT state nomination visa soon, but thinking of starting my own business after I'm granted the visa, will it be an issue if I leave my job and work from home, or travel between 2 states as I have family living in another state. If I have a home business I can travel more and live in 2 states and still fulfil the 2 year criteria for having to live in ACT after the grant of my visa.

The survey questions are making me nervous. What do they ask and will it be an issue if I spend quite a bit of my time in another state and don't really work for an ACT employer (yet still having my official residence in ACT?)

There is no legal impediment to you and your family not living in the ACT. It is more of a moral commitment to living in the ACT for 2 years. If you don't there is nothing the ACT can do about it.
