Hello folks, I have come across a couple of extra questions regarding the 190 visa process as a high points scorer for South Australia. Hope you can help as I have visa information overload and despite my best research efforts I have not found a definitive answer so want to make sure I have understood the process before proceeding.
1. State nomination requirements include - Work experience – at least one year of skilled work experience in the last three years. My relevant work experience concluded on 21 December 2012. Will it be an issue as technically that is only 5 months in the last three years or will the fact that it was in 2012 be enough?
2. If you are onshore, you may be required to provide evidence of South Australian residence and that your employment has primarily been in South Australia. How important is this as I am currently in Melbourne but totally committed to moving if successful in getting the visa. I am not currently in a position to stop work and move to Adelaide before being offered a visa. Does anyone have any experience of being asked for this evidence? Any thoughts on how this will affect my application. Is it a deal breaker? If I do move prior to applying should I do this before submitting EOI or within the 60 days following invitation.
Thanks in advance :)
