Jan n Feb applicants pls do something. You are blocking the queue. 😉

I think most of the Jan applications are done and Feb applications will start (hopefully) in Feb.

There are two groups of people here, the first group who genuinely has a problem, the second who is trying to mess around with it. The latter are the ones who is responsible for the global time frame.

I know it’s frustrating friend. But we’ve come this far, we should hear something soon I reckon.

I’m thinking closer to our 1 year timeframe for sure. This Feb.

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 :)
