Cut off for finding a job on 189 Visa

Hi there, I'm new to this forum so hi to everyone!

I'm looking to apply for a 189 Skilled Visa but I have concerns around some of the caveats this visa has and I cannot get the information from Department of Home Affairs for love no money (I was passed to them from Department of State Development)

Im worried that if I get the visa and enter Australia that I won't be able to get a job straight away, which is normal. Does anyone know if there is a cut off at all for finding work on a visa?

Also it says that I must find work with a company who has a minimum turnover of $1M. Here in the UK I contract across multiple companies all adding to well over that number. Can you do contracting work under a visa?

And I'll be looking for SA sponsorship so assume all companies must be in SA?

Sorry for all the questions but the web form doesn't answer it and the phone is constantly engaged. Any help would be great!

Cheers, Aaron

As far as I know, there is no obligation to find any sort of employment at all, if you have a general skilled visa.

What caveats are you referring to ? Which occupation(s)?

Are you looking at state sponsored (sc.190) rather than sc.189 ?

The caveats are: Excludes any of the following positions:
based in a front-line retail setting
predominately involve direct client transactional interaction on a regular basis
with businesses than have an annual turnover of less than AUD$1M
have a nominated base salary of less than AUD$65,000.

It is for Marketing Specialist.

The caveats only apply to employer sponsored visas sc. 457 and sc. 186. If you apply for those visas, you would obviously already have a job.

This occupation is not an eligible occupation for a sc. 189 visa and there are only very limited options under state nominated sc. 190 and sc. 489 visas.

Yep I would ideally enter Australia as a skilled migrant under occupation marketing specialist to live in South Australia. Again as you say without a job before hand. Can you tell me what you mean by limited options?

I have more than enough points. Any help would be amazing!

Without an employer to sponsor you, you'd be looking at sc. 190 and 489.

Have a look here:

Supplementary Skilled List and Special Conditions Apply
