Been granted my 176 visa this morning. Looking ahead to keep funds down I'm going to stay with a friend in Melbourne (for free) while I search for a job in Adelaide as recruiters not really taking my applications serious enough at the moment because I'm still in the UK. Free accommodation is nothing to be sniffed at and would make things so much easier financially. However, with my state sponsorship am I required to land in SA to validate visa. Or would Melbourne suffice for now??? Any help would be appriciated.
