    hi there

    today morning i sent an email to immigration SA for moving to Victoria coz i cant find a regular job from last 9 months and i have tried everywhere including all super markets so they sent me this mail i dont understand whether they have allowed me or not because the mail has dual meaning,so please advice me,ur advice will be highly appreciated.

    Dear *******

    I refer to your email which has been forwarded to me for response. Immigration SA is disappointed that having granted you sponsorship to facilitate visa grant, you are considering moving from South Australia.

     

    Permanent Visa

    While legally the Skilled Sponsored Visa (subclass 137/176/886), allows you to live and work anywhere in Australia, you are reminded that sponsorship was granted to enable you to obtain a permanent visa on the basis that you had indicated that you were genuine in your commitment and interest to live and work in South Australia for at least two years. Through sponsorship from South Australia you were granted a permanent visa by Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC).

     

    You will recall that you had signed a Declaration in the course of the sponsorship application indicating that you would migrate to and live in South Australia for at least two years. Through sponsorship from South Australia you were granted the appropriate visa by Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). Without this sponsorship you would not have been granted this visa. We can only question if the information provided in your application was genuine.

     

    Your Online application indicated that:

    Please detail what sort of research you conducted and your understanding and own analysis of the employment prospects and opportunities that may exist for you in South Australia. I have more than 5 years of experience as a Toolmaker. This occupation is in demand in both metropolitan and regional South Australia. I am confident to get good job in my occupation in South Australia. There are so many employment agencies in South Australia and I contact these employment agencies for job. I have some friends in South Australia and they agreed to give us every kind of support.

    What research have you undertaken of the job market in South Australia outside of your nominated occupation? Detail what sort of research you conducted and your understanding and own analysis of the other employment prospects and opportunities that may exist for you in South Australia. I have more than 5 years of experience as a Toolmaker. According to skills shortage in South Australia, my occupation is in demand in both metropolitan and regional South Australia. There are so many jobs in toolmaking / Machinist etc. in South Australia. I am confident to get good job in my field in South Australia. I have some friends in South Australia and they agreed to give us every kind of support.

     

    One of the objectives of these State Sponsored schemes is to disperse migrants to areas that sponsor them. By migrants not settling in these areas, the objective of this visa program is being compromised.

     

    Having granted you sponsorship, it would be counter-productive for Immigration SA to now agree for you not to settle in South Australia. We hope that you will consider your moral obligation and the intent and goodwill in which sponsorship was grAanted.

     

    We advise you to visit/ revisit the employment services to seek more assistance in securing suitable employment. Ring 1800 658 887 to make an appointment. However, ultimately, if you do decide to move, you should let Immigration SA know by ringing us on 8303 2420 so that we can update our records accordingly and not contact you further.

    Hi,

    I am currently waiting for a state sponsored visa as we could no longer apply for a 175, and voiced my concerns to my agent as we didn't know if we would stay in sa, my agents response was that we had a moral not a legal obligation to stay in sa, which is what they seem to of stated in their reply to you.

     

    That's something you may need to clarify with them.

     

    Hope this is a bit of help.

    I agree that the letter is not totally clear. :confused:

     

    It doesn't actually say that you can't go to Victoria. It says that they don't 'agree' with you going and that morally you are obliged to stay.

     

    Maybe ring the 1800 number and see if they can find you work.

     

    Also have you looked at the website www.pomsinoz.com ? I am sure that if you do a search on old posts you will find the information you need.

    This does sound really contradictory.

    We had a family stay with us two months ago and he was also a toolmaker by trade. He managed to get three job offers as a mechanic in his first week. That was just by calling in places in the Christies beach area. I do know how difficult it can be though. My OH took ages to get a job. I think that it's really important to meet as many people as you can. Maybe something comes out of the Heaps Good pm. I hope so.
