    I know that is negative info. But this is how immi changes the rules. Immi is going to close 489 in November 2019 and will bring more defficult regional visa. Currently for 489 relevant experience is mandatory + all the points. So whoever will apply from offshore will have more benefit. My friend's immi agent also said that immi might bring down 887 processing time. So I am positive about processing time will bring down to under 12 months for most of the applicants.

    Hi, 489 is a ultra shit visa. 189 the best or at least 190. Both are permanent residence visas. Adelaide best to live if you have good job. State sponsorship is a bloody joke. They just dump people here and you have to look after yourself. Jobs are hard even odd jobs. No need to do IELTS again for 887 , If your spouse did the higher studies in English medium. Schools free for 489 but some schools you have to pay around $500 per year. Monthly expenses would be around $ 3000 for month. Its for just food and rental for 4 family. Do better research before come or come your self first and study the situation at least one month.

    Best to go for the independent visa (189/190) if you have enough points, as 489 is a pain in the butt. Sorry. Only go for 489 if you do not have enough points. You will not have Medicare on 489 (unless your country of origin has reciprocal agreement with Australia, like UK), so will need visitors' private health. Most people go with BUPA, for full comprehensive insurance (extras + hospital) you may be looking at paying about $200 a fortnight for 4 people. Please research this online, I cannot give exact figures. I pay $120 a fortnight for me and my son. this covers all extras and hospital with $500 excess. You can get a job here, but please be prepared that it may not be in your field. Adelaide is a funny place like that. You have to be very lucky to get straight into your profession on arrival. Many people of good professions like doctors and engineers here work as UBER drivers, which is a bit sad, but it gets them a PR in the end! No requirement for IELTS for main applicant for 887, but there is for a secondary applicant. Or you can use a university degree as a proof of English. Adelaide is very livable in terms of rent and living expenses. There are some cheaper suburbs north and south, more expensive in the hills and near the ocean , you just have to look for there you want to be. You can rent a house or unit for your family for $300/week, if you want to start small. Plus other expenses: food, cars, energy bills, phones, internet. As an example, all my bills with rent average at $450-500 per week plus car fuel, food and mobile phone. Yes, you can invite parents on 489.
