Immigrating to Gold Coast During Pandemic


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


This is my first time joining and posting on this forum.


I have been fortunate enough to have been offered a job at a company in Gold Coast QLD, and they will be sponsoring my Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482). My girlfriend and I have been living together for almost 2 years so luckily she qualifies for a Partner Visa.


Having not left South Africa before this is a big step, but we're excited. We will be selling all of our furniture, etc. here in SA and just take the necessities in our luggage, so the move will be a complete fresh start.


If there is anyone here living in Gold Coast, could you please recommend some areas that you think are best. My office will be in Surfers Paradise.


Also, has anyone here applied for a TSS Visa in 2020 and have had it approved? How long did it take?


Based on the employers estimations they expect us to move somewhere between mid to end January. Apparently since its an IT Professional position, there exemptions for travelling during the pandemic, and priority on the Visa processing. Not sure how accurate that is.

Hope to hear from you all.

Kind Regards,
