Visa 190 - Should move to Adelaide or not

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I need an advice and hope will get answer from this wonderful forum...

 

I have got 190 visa last month. I've applied it for Adelaide but after reading all feedbacks and employment situation in Adelaide, I am confused about moving there. I read in the forum that it's not an legal requirement to come, settle or at least live first two years in the sponsored state and we can move anywhere in Australia as we have PR. Is it true? Can I come to Melbourne and settle there? Will there be any difficulties or complications at the time of applying citizenship? Please reply as I have to arrange my tickets and residence :-). Thanks in advance!

If I could get a dollar every time someone asked this same question....

 

Did you try to search the forum for similar questions? This has been asked a lot and you will no doubt find some answers already on here. Here is one such thread where someone posted a pretty good answer. http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/migration-issues/38876-190-visa-conditions-2.html

A good looking chap too whoever he is... :err:

 

I personally have not had any trouble since I arrived and scored a pretty good job within 2 months of arrival, but everyones' experience is different and others may find it extremely difficult to find work.

 

Good luck with whatever you decide.

...of course flouting the ethics of the visa you were granted bears no resemblance in any way to the way the hordes of eastern Europeans are treating the UK and abusing its systems....

We always said we would play fair and give SA a fair go - for 6 months before approaching the powers that be to see if we re-locate. As it turned out, in the IT field, I've been fine work wise and things have gone well.

Have you visited on a reccie?

 

I wondered the same thing when moving here. I read the reports that over half of all new migrants wouldn't settle and would return home again.

I have seen this first hand in the business side of what I do. Some guests seem to be overwhelmed and swamped when things don't fall into place straight away and others make a real success of things. The type of employment does play a large part in the big picture. I know people who have moved interstate too and the visa issue didn't seem to be a problem.

 

Friends of ours moved out here 3 years ago. They lasted 2 years and returned but we were out with their close relatives last night...and they are here to stay. One is a tradie and the other has her own small business. Making contacts and having a support network played a massive part in settling.

I see people arrive here on a reccie and walk into jobs...and I see people struggle and get depressed. I also deal with guests who ping pong backwards and forwards...it's a real rollercoaster is this migration!

 

What I do see from my business side is that many families have settled, and are thriving, as I have so many bookings from visiting family members who were migrants and are now making a real life for themselves.

All the best with your decision...

      We have recently moved back to Adelaide after 17 years in America. We have a 17 & 19 year old and would love to meet other expats with late teens that have moved to Adelaide.  Let me know if this is you! Thanks Kym

      Hello Forum..
      This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. 
      Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind.
      Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during:
      the application process  after grant is received pre-landing preparations  post landing  experiences and lessons learnt  
      This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it 
       
      Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others!  God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.

      Hi Guys,
      Well by God's grace things seem to be progressing well and hopefully if we clear our Health Check then we seem to inch closer in acquiring a 489 Visa  and considering it would take 5 to 6 months i.e. May - June we should have our visa in our hand. If things go as per plan then we intend doing our landing in Sept - Oct 2018 but I have many queries on how to go about it? 
      We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 and 4)
      which suburb in Adelaide do we decide to live in and what should be the criteria while choosing a suburb ? (close proximity to the city, schools, public transport etc) considering that there wont be any income when we reach, what is the monthly outgoing should we expect? We plan to rent  2 bedroom apartment / house. can my children get admissions in a government school? ( i know it wont be free as I am on a 489 visa) and what would the fee structure be like? (Grade 6 and Grade 1) what is the best way to scout for jobs? appreciate if anyone can share a template of CV's that are normally followed. are rental properties normally furnished or unfurnished?  can we get a short term rental where we can be flexible to move out once we decide on the suburb we want to live in? I would also appreciate any additional info that you think can be useful, like from your own experiences, lessons learnt, do's and don'ts etc.
       
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year.
      I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters?
      My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there.
      Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....)
      Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
      If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM.
      Cheers
      Steve
