Forgive me if I'm wrong but I'm under the impression that for our ss 489 visa we HAVE TO live in south australia and work in south australia for two years before you can apply for a permanent visa?? The whole of south australia is regional so no boundaries there but would think that if you left south australia (or any state you are sponsored by on a 489) to live or work elsewhere it would affect your chances of a permanent visa at the end of the four years!!
Please correct me if I am wrong though??
8539 - While the visa holder is in Australia they cannot live, study or work outside of a regional or low growth metropolitan area. This means
anywhere in Australia except in:
• Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central Coast in New South Wales
• Brisbane and the Gold Coast in Queensland
• Perth in Western Australia
• Melbourne in Victoria
• the Australian Capital Territory.
A complete listing of 'regional Australia' and 'low population growth metropolitan areas' by postcode is available.
See: Regional Australia/ Low Population Growth Metropolitan Areas.
As you can see, there is no condition that restricts you being in a specific area, as long as the area you are staying is considered as regional or low growth metropolitan area. Check the post code of the area you want to go, to make sure that it's included

I want to know wether form 80 in the checklist is to be filled in only by the main applicant or everyone who is in accompanying family over 18 years.
