Visa 190 (Schedule 2) Times?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have gained enough points to submit my EOI for a schedule 2 role. I am aware that once I have submitted my EOI and received an invitation back I will have 28 days to apply. I am also aware that after I have applied I have to email them a 12 month contract of full-time employment offer.

 

I am just wondering the following things:

 

  • How long it takes approximately from submitting the EOI to receiving an invitation?
  • How long after applying do they allow you to show them proof of a contract of employment? (28 days seems a very short amount of time to find a job and be successful in obtaining it)
  • Can the contract be for volunteer work as long as it is in the correct field of work?
  • Is the 3 month processing time from the date of EOI Submission?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anyone who is currently or has been through this process please shed some light.

 

I am unsure how i can find a job when I dont know how long it is going to take for the visa to be sorted out? So when am i meant to tell them i could start etc.

 

Thanks.

I would not submit an eoi for a schedule 2 occupation until you find a job. The reason occupations are put on schedule 2 is because there is not a lot of demand for that occupation / lots of local candidates. I would concentrate on trying to get a job offer.

There are a couple of other threads on here about schedule 2 occupations, have a search and see if you can find them as a few people are waiting for invites. One person just got an invite after waiting a year but has no job offer.

      ?? ? Would you like to work as a casual chef for our award winning, friendly restaurant?
      Do you have experience, enthusiasm and are competent and versatile in the kitchen?
      The restaurant is in North Beach.
      We're after someone for a fortnight from October the 28th.
      We're open Tues thru' Saturday. Shift starts lunchtime on-wards.
      This two week period would be full-time casual, with the prospect of extra work afterwards.
      We were recently rated a 'must-visit' in a Sunday Times review.
      Even though we say it ourselves, we're a great team, so come and be part of it!
      You would probably need your own transport, as public transport isn't that reliable.
      Please text Sally with your phone number on 0401 566710 with brief details of past work 
      We look forward to hearing from you ?
