Me too, sponsored by one of RDA in NSW but never been there. My 489 visa was granted onshore but 2 weeks later I got a full time job offer from a resort outside the region (chef occupation). I accepted and forwarded it to the RDA and they  gave me release letter straight away.

Hello,

Getting an offer from different region other than the sponsored state, seems to be a fair reason to ask for a release. But what happens at the time of applying for 887?The visa condition of 887 clearly states that the applicant must live and work in the sponsored state/region.. Can someone give more info on this? may be post relevant links or related forum posts?

Thanks in advance. !!

I asked from agent he said would not be a problem but I want to be on safe side that's why created thread to know if somebody has got 887 by living in a different region.

So did he get PR even without release letter?

It is not a problem, as long as you lived and worked in regional post codes for the required periods

Hi mate you seem very confident with your response. You must have evidence to support please share if you don't mind.

Yes I know quite a few couples and friends who have moved regions and states on 489 visas, without permission letters and have received their 887 PR's. The legislation allows movement between regions as per the stipulated post codes. I was sponsored by Northern Inland in NSW but moved to the Mid-North Coast where I had a job offer. Before that I got advice from a lawyer in order to be confident about the move

Hi Samm,
