Hi Mark,

If 489 was approved and eventually I met the 60 points for 189 and lodge eoi for this, does holding a 489 visa have a negative implication on the chances of getting invited from skill select? I know it is the DIBP discretion but I cant stop to worry that I may not be invited if I just recently have applied for and have granted for 489 visa. Thanks in advance.


Regards,

Josh

Hi Josh -

No negative issue I know of re: holding 489 and applying for 189 or 190 - they are different types of visas (489 is provisional, 189/190 are PR) with different assessments, etc. If/when issued, the 189 or 190 would simply replace the 489.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks again Mark.

Ill give an IELTS a go and hope to get an 8 in all band until December, if unsuccessful with this I feel like I have to lodge for 489 and hope to get invited before a new nsw sol is updated around January 2015. I am afraid that it is only Orana region has the accounting on the list and they may take this out also on January and in this case I will be screwed as I will be running with no option because my 485 visa will expires on March.

I dont want to leave Sydney as much as possible as I am already settled down here with decent jobs. This is a very uneasy situation that it is like a gamble of apply now for 489 before they remove it as well or just wait till new nsw sol is posted as they may put the accounting back.. It is so difficult situation.

Hi Joshkiedis -

Sounds like a plan! Re: IELTS test preparation and strategy, we recommend Scotts English (http://scottsenglish.com) - it's a great course that you can take online, is very reasonably priced, and is effective at helping perform better on the IELTS test.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you Mark. The link does not open though. Could be typo? By the way, one more question please, just to have some clarification, since 489 is a pathway, after two years of spending time in Orana and working fulltime, do I have to still nominate an occupation when applying for PR? I believe I dont have to but I thought I may have to ask for verification.

Regards,

Josh

Hi Josh -

Please check the link in the previous post again - seems to work OK now - note that it's a dot-com, not dot-com-dot-au link. Re: 887 visa after living/working in regional area on a 489, no need to nominate or qualify for a particular occupation for the 887.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Joseph -

Good luck on your IELTS! Re: qualifying for 887, you do not need to work in the same occupation as you nominated for your 489.

Hope this helps -
