Looking gift horse in the mouth?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

Hubby and I  are very confused about what to do next. Today, we received a positive response on EOI. We have received an invitation to apply for SC491 visa, sponsored by QLD. 

We have an uncle (citizen) who is willing to sponsor us for the SC 491 family stream visa. All thanks to our family member, we have the following waiting for us:

  • Job for hubby (in his trade, Flexi hours, decent salary)
  • Housing
  • Cars

 

but.... 

 

The uncle (and all above mentioned "benefits"), are based in Perth, WA. 

Due to all the above, we (obviously) had our hearts set on getting the invitation for the 491 Family stream. 

 

Are we being irrational. 

 

I know many of you have managed to get to Oz with far less than we were hoping for. 

We have not done any research about any other City/State in Australia, and have no idea what to expect. 

 

Ae we looking a gift horse in the mouth, or should we try hold out for the 491 family stream?

One of the things you might look at is the number of points you have vs the number of points that are currently being required to obtain an invitation for a 491 in the Family stream (Jan 2020 = 90+).

Hallo CurlyT

 

With how many points did you apply?

 

How long did you wait for the positive EOI?

 

All the best!!

Why don't you come over to Perth and have a look and see how bad🤣 it is here and take it from there?

We had our hearts set on Brisbane while we were in South Africa, but then came to Perth for a look see and decide trip. 9 years later we are still in Perth and wouldn't change it for the world....
