Victoria Visa 190 application question

Hi there,

I graduated in Victoria with my PhD but currently I am working in Brisbane. Just wondering if I want to apply Vic state nomination for visa 190, do I have to either move back to Victoria or provide them a Vic employment offer to be eligible to get a sponsorship under the Vic PhD graduate stream?

Thanks

Regards
Joe

No, you do not have to be in Victoria, and you do not have to get employment (at least not under the 190 visa). If you want an employer sponsorship, you could try the Employer Nomination Scheme.

As you're in Brisbane, could you tell me how Brisbane is like, as friends of mine plan to move there and were anxious about issues of extreme racism there. Is it true? They are Asian, and you as someone from China, have you experienced any discrimination?

HI there thanks for the reply.

Actually i was asking whether i will need a job offer to get a VIC nomination under the Victorian PhD graduate scheme when i am not living in Victoria at the time i apply for the nomination. on the official website it states that :

Offer of employment
You will be required to provide a current job offer in your nominated occupation to support your visa nomination application if:
you are currently living in another Australian state,
or this is a requirement for your occupation on the State Nomination Occupation List for Graduates in Victoria.


It looks to me that I would need a job offer to apply for VIC nomination if i am not living in VIC. But official statements can be confusing. Would be great if someone can clarify this for me. Thanks a lot.

Regarding your question, I have not really encountered any discrimination against myself since i am in Australia (I was in Tas more than 2 years, Melb more than 3 years and now Bris almost a year). Foreign cultures seem to be generally accepted by Australians (maybe just a few narrow-minded people aren't like this). In Birsbane (or most of the cities) Asian society is still pretty big in ratio to non Asians. Discrimination is everywhere but Australia is not too bad. I would not worry too much about discrimination in Brisbane. And Bris is developing very fast both economically and culturally. So I would say people's acceptance to foreign cultures is also improving. One of the beauties of this country is that you can choose the life style you want to live. If a minority is too narrow-minded to accept you, then I guess you just have to realise discrimination is just a matter of opinion and not to care about other people's opinions. What can you do. and what can they do.

Regards
Joe

Hi Joe,

I looked up the Victorian 190 visa page, and yes, it seems that you do have to provide evidence of employment since you are in Brisbane right now. This is interesting, as I've never encountered other states requiring this. If finding employment proves to be difficult, then maybe you could move to Vic and lodge the application from there? It would also be easier for you to find employment in Victoria if you were also living there (easier to come to interviews etc.)

The job offer requirement is usually dependent on the occupation and the level of availability - many of the states including WA, ACT and NT require this of some occupations. For occupations they really need badly they won't have this requirement, but for ones that are in low-moderate need, this is becoming a more common requirement.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Joe -

You would need to research with people who know that industry well in Australia - you could talk to companies who hire people in this occupation, as well as recruiters who recruit in this area and job boards such as seek.com.au and others.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

Yes will do. Thanks a lot!

Also by the way, by any chance you would know about if I am on a bridging visa waiting for my visa 885, could i apply for visa 190 at the same time? or I would have to withdraw my 885 application (in that case i would be without and visa to stay here immediately) before I lodge visa 190?

Really appreciate your information guys! Thanks a lot!

Regards
Joe

Hi Joe -

Generally no need to withdraw one application if applying for another visa, however once one is ready to be granted, DIBP will normally ask you to withdraw the other one.

Thanks a lot!

I am going back to China for 4 weeks in this November, Just hope my visa 885 application (lodged in May 2011) wont get processed while I am in China. A bit worry if I get rejected, I wont have a visa to come back to Australia anymore. That would be terrible.

Regards
Joe
