I have went through several forums, several threads on this topic. I still didn't get a concrete answer. Anyway, my question is not about what happens if we don't follow the obligation, about citizenship, is it legal or moral etc..
People move states since they cant find job in their state and have found in a different state. So, do employers offer a job for 190 visa holders since they know
the candidate hasn't stayed in his state for 2 years? Have you come across this situation? How did you handle it with the employer?
I have my visa from victoria and have applied for 100s of jobs from past 3 months and am unable to find a job. After some research I have found that there are no companies in victoria working on the technology that matches my skills set. However, I have found few companies in sydney and with great difficulty I have found a contract job. I haven't got a chance to discuss with the employer that I have 190 visa and not 189. I dont know if I have to discuss with my prospective employer and if he'll agree or take back the offer :( I really want this job...or talk to state officials to relieve me from this obligation and will they agree?
BTW., I am ready to move back to victoria after gaining some local experience and after the contract ends in sydney.
