At last, if we want to visit Europe from Australia(while on 489 visa), from where I will apply Schengen visa, Australia or home country? if someone had similar experience and want to share their perspectives/thoughts please:)

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi All, Can anyone tell me that are 489 visa holders eligible for parental leaves? Also new rules are changing may be government is planning to keep migrants in regional areas for 3 years before applying PR, will it effect people who already(recently) received 489 visa or it will be for new applications? I am worried as we have invested our savings and took this risk with a lot of compromises to have a better future but when we got to know that we are only eligible for 489 we were little disappointed that how the journey going to be in terms of career but thought to take this risk but now when I read news related to 887 visas I get so scared that what will happen by the time we will be eligible :( Will this PR option or 887 visa be there or not by then due new new changes in rules everyday:( Will this straggle pay off? What are your thoughts?

    Hi All Seniors, I would really appreciate if someone can guide me with below 3 questions - 1.

What are the documents I need to get a rented apartment apart from points? 3. What are the best websites/options to search a rented apartment in South Australia(specifically Adelaide)? Thank you in advance for your time:)

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi Dee, I am a new to this forum world and unsure that if not this forum(where a lot of people have spent a certain amount of time in Adelaide and may have already seen the situations which I am going to, in future) isn't the right platform to take the advise, which one would it be? I would appreciate if someone can guide me please as my motive is not to disturb anyone on this forum by asking irrelevant questions. I just feel that you must have had these questions once in your mind when you started your journey too. If you are able to make your way till here and have the opportunity to help someone like me to make their journey easier then you may not get much in return but a lot of blessings from those people whom you helped by spreading knowledge and experience you have earned. At-last, a big THANK YOU for guiding and advising me, I value and appreciate your time. It is certainly going to add value to my future decisions:)

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi All, First of all I wish all of you receive your visa soon:). I have applied for 489 visa which I received recently and we are planning to move to Adelaide in April. I was wondering if - We can stay in Adelaide and do Work from home for company which is located in another state lets say Melbourne Victoria till we do not find a job in Adelaide? Can a company shift us from 489 to permanent visa(186 company sponsored) while we are on 489? What is the best localities(safe and in city) to look for a rented home? Do we have to pay something extra in advance to Landlord/Owner for renting the house apart from rent (as a security deposit)? What is the best way to secure a job in Adelaide, through companies or Are there any consultancies for IT sector? What is the best way to get my resume with cover letter done to secure a job in Adelaide Australia, Can someone refer a company or site who helps to get it done? Thank you so so much in advance for helping me out :).. Dear Seniors, Your answer is going to help me plan things well, please support ..

    Hi @kV-Is ShortName - - Waking up to such a wonderful/enlightening and fact packed answer has just made my day! - Trust me! When I was finished up composing my post, I too was surprised how lengthy it was and was unsure if someone is going to even read it. And now, I am even more surprised seeing the detailed response you posted. - I am not appreciating you just because your answer brought me a lot of relief, but also for giving time to an absolute stranger. - I recently joined this forum and I'll definitely stick around to have a smooth and guided journey from people like you. Thanks again:)

    Thank you JPSLTOZ for your time and response I certainly appreciate it. Can I have some more advises/guidance/suggestions on above asked questions please? ALSO, I hope all of you get the grant soon. I know its very frustrating:( I am looking to do my best to secure 887 when I am eligible but god know if 887 will be there by the time I will be eligible or not (no one wants to be restricted but 887 at least gives us hope of freedom. I heard that the rules will may change over a time of period to forcefully keep the migrants in the regional states only). but all the responses on my question will surely help me eventually The link where it says conditions may change for migrants to get PR in future: https://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/punjabi/en/article/2018/08/29/new-migrants-may-have-live-regional-australia-5-years Any thoughts - "when temporary visa is for 4 years only, how can they apply and extend the rule for 5 years"?

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi All, I am new here, just going through the Q&A and I know you are the best one here to guide me for a better tomorrow. I am moving to Adelaide in Feb'19 on 489 visa. I am into IT job (AWS cloud/ Python scripting | DevOps) on a good designation back home. I took the risk and have invested all my savings in this to have a better future(no complains or guilt as I am a risk taker but keeping my exact situation here). I know its a big risk to leave a good existing job and move to a new country and start everything from scratch therefore, I am a little worried/exited/anxious about how should I plan from here and all of you who are going to reply will play a big role in my upcoming decisions. Some of the questions below, I know are too futuristic however, with the help of your knowledgeable answers and guidance, I just want to be on the side of caution from the very beginning. 1. What is the job situation in Adelaide for above skill set? 2. What is the best way to secure a job in Adelaide with no reference/onshore experience? 3. What is the possibility to secure a job from offshore? 4. I am married since last 4 years and now we want to bring our bundle of joy in the world soon:). 489 wont give us any medical facility so keeping this in mind, what is the best medical insurance (Affordable for a middle class) I should go for? 5. Once my newborn is there, what document work should I do in advance to avoid any hassle at the time of 887? 6. Can you tell me what are the things I should take care of beforehand so that I can increase my chances of 887 visa? 7. As per the rules to apply for 887 - (2 years stay and 1 year full time job) Does this mean, I can work anywhere after 1 year full time job and live in Adelaide and once I complete 2 years in Adelaide I can apply for 887? 8. So many people who have applied for 887, some by themselves and some by consultancy, (I know its too early) but for my record and to be on a safer side, can someone suggest me a good consultancy in Australia who will ensure the best document work and try their best to get you the PR grant? 9 - Anything apart from this,you would like to add or suggest to help me achieve my goal, which I forgot to mention here will be absolutely wonderful :)
