489 Visa and Job Opportunities

Hi everyone,

I am a 48 years old Indian citizen, currently working in Middle East, pursuing hope for migration to Australia. My immigration agent advises me that, the only option for migration to Australia for me and my family (wife and daughter) is 489. That means, of course with a State sponsorship and an IELTS 8 in all bands. After reading through some of the on-line pieces of information, I feel apprehensive about the following:
  1. Does state sponsorship mean that I need to live in a rural area?
  2. Being a Mechanical Engineer with a lot of experience in Petrochemical/Oil&Gas Turnaround and Maintenance management - both on field/planning and consultancy, will such rural living affect my job opportunities?
  3. With my daughter at an age for University and 489 denying me education support from Government, will it be too much to bear on expenses for me?
  4. The same goes with health issues as well. With no support from Government, I am highly apprehensive of medical expenses.

Highly appreciate, if someone out there can throw some light on the above, please, which will help me decide on going ahead with the migration decision or not.

Many thanks,
Best Regards,
