Thread: Help please, regarding family sponsorship instead of state 489?

    Help please, regarding family sponsorship instead of state 489?

    Hello,

    I want to know if I can re-apply for Australian immigration and my brother can sponsor me, he is in Melbourne working as an IT Engineer. (He's Australian Citizen).

    I already applied for immigration but for “skilled state sponsorship 489 class” and my case is at EOI right now (65 points) and waiting for an invitation.

    As I heard that "NOW" (Some rules update) my brother/family member “can” sponsor instead of state 489, so is it possible that we change from “state sponsorship” to “family sponsorship”?

    I am bit confused and need professional advice.

    My details are,
    Age: 32
    Married
    ACS: Completed as “System Administrator”
    IELTS: Total band 7 (L: 7.5, R: 6.5, W: 6.0, S: 8.0)
    Qualification: Masters from UK in IT (London South Bank University)
    Work Experience: About 8 years in IT.


    Thank You

    From: Karachi, Pakistan.

    I believe no changes will be applied before July 2013. I advice you to wait for a EOI. If they did not send you the EOI, then go for the relative sponsor option. Most of the states require 7 in each band. If the rules has changed then check on the immi website about state sponsorship.
