  2. I found out today that I am not able to extend my 475 visa via the 487 Visa this would have given me the time I need to have a route to PR So I am at a loss, I wish I had know the rules had changed on the 1st of July I might have been able to stop the ball rolling and kept my Job in the UK, now I have come here I do not have a Job as yet and more worryingly if I do not find a company that will employ me and offer sponsorship I will have no choice but to leave Oz If anyone has any Ideas I would appreciate hearing them Thanks Simon

    Adelaide Bound - Feb 2013

    Hi, So, after what seemed at the time like a long process but now feels like it went by in a flash, we got our 475 yesterday (3rd July 2012). Like many, the relief and nerves had kicked in yesterday but tonight was time to pop open the champagne and relax. Planning to get to Adelaide in Feb 2013 - I can't wait, OH suddenly nervous and a bit spaced. Happy that I could start a thread tonight as I finally give a bit a feedback earlier to a fellow ITer after many weeks of lurking and soaking up advice.
  4. Hi, I am a new migrant to SA with 475. I know AMEP courses are basically for the PR holders. But I see on the following link that 475 holders can also be eligible for it - may be under certain criteria. http://www.immi.gov.au/media/fact-sheets/94amep.htm Anybody have any idea if I or my secondary applicant will be eligible for the Free courses from AMEP ? Thanks in advance.

    Taxes for 475 holders

    Anybody, can give any idea about the taxes for the 475 holder ? Is it the same as the PR ?
  6. Hi guys, Is it legal for a company to state it has a policy to only hire permanent residents on full time contracts? I know certain government depts can due to security issues but for a normal company it's surely discrimination? I'm on a 475 and have come across this recently a couple of times but it only comes up after 1st interview stage. 475 (state sponsored skilled visa) seems to be mis-understood by a lot of employers cheers Ronnie
  7. Hi, does any one know if I can get Medical Insurance (private) on a 475? I have checked a few websites and it doesnt seem to cover my visa ... Any ideas?
  8. Hi, I have applied for visa 475(SRS). I have work experience in Software Testing. But my nominated occupation is of Libarian. Vetasses evaluation for the same is completed successfully. Can I work in the field of software testing even if my nominated occupation is of Librarian? If I do so, will it affect my PR application? Please advice me on this. Thanks in advance.. Joe
  9. Can you do a “pause” in the visa? Can we go to NZ for 2 years and come back? I think we have to live here for 2 years out of 3?! We on a 475, 4 months in, I’m temping and my husband still no job (even though his job is in the shortlist). He was offered a very good job in Auckland for 2 years, paying very well. The employer would pay for our relocation and visas. The question is we don’t want to loose our visa for South Australia as we would like later to become permanent residents. But seeing what happened to that couple, that lost their job and had to go back to the UK. It’s a big gamble but we concerned with the job market here being dead that he won’t get anything (keeps being told he is overqualified). All advice very much appreciated.
