    Hello po sa lahat! Hopefully everyone is safe and healthy!

    Tanong lang po, yung brother ko po sana is mag apply ng visa subclass 491 (family sponsored). Nandito po ako sa Adelaide. I've been here and working full time for 2 years now. Sponsor ko po sana sya, ang kaso po eh kaka-apply lang po namin ng wife ko ng house loan, so most of our savings will be going to the house deposit.

    Makaka-apekto po ba iyon pagdating sa financial assessment kung eligible ko sponsor yung brother ko? Thanks po in advance

    Hi. Mag tanong po ako regarding sa rules ng Age limit ng immi for getting the maximum points na 30pts. Ano po ba ang tamangg rules dito? Yun age bracket ng 30points ay hanggang 32y/o lng ang pede. Pede ko ba maclaim ang 30 points kahit lampas 32years old ka na ako (lets say lampas ng ilang months and days)? At saka etong rules ba na eto ay applicable lng ba sa sa time ng lodging ng EOI or PR visa or di kaya sa time ng ITA result? Mag 32 years old pa lng ako on April 2021 next year. Hanggang kelan ako dapat mag lolodge? Else, i will get only 25pts.

    @anica your EOI points in age will still be 30 until you become 33 years old (April 2022)

    Follow up question about age... my husband is turning 45 in March 2021. There is an age limit for 190 and 491 right? when does the cut-off apply? should be less than 45 years old upon nomination (from state), or invitation (from dha)? Thank you po sa sasagot.... so slim na po yun time

    Question lang po for 491 to 191, ano po yung requirements?
    Totoo po ba na kahit hindi main applicant yung mag work basta naabot yung threshold na taxable income for 3 years puwede for 191? Thank you in advance!

    Any of your dependents who can comply for the 191 reqs can be the main applicant.

    Hi mam. If your husband received the invitation ng 45 yo sya, ok po yun. Pasok pa siya. However, if lampas 45 yo napo siya and wala pa siyang invite, i think hindi na siya eligible.

    Thats my thought. Correct me if im wrong. ☺️

    Hi sir, ask ko lang dinala mo ba si wife as dependent? I'm planning also to list my wife as my dependent if maapprove yung 491 VISA ko which is family sponsored VISA.

    If you have included her on your EOI so you can add her as dependent.

    @rogerjr as far as I can remember po as dependent lang yung ginawa namin. Nag english test lang po sya para dun sa “competent” level na requirement and paid additional application.

    @cutiepie25 Screenshots po ng mga texts, call logs namin + photos (with family and friends) and converted into a PDF file (nasa 4 to 5 PDF files po ata inabot sa sobrang dami). Bank transfers po sa isat isa. And letter na sinulat namin individually stating the history of our relationship and kung bakit wala kaming bills under the same name. Pina stamp po namin yung letters sa consulate since nasa Saudi po kami that time.

    Thanks @Linetdane . I've checked the eligibility requirements and I think I'll be able to meet them. I've been living here in Adelaide as PR since January 2019. I'm thinking of sponsoring my brother for visa 491 (he's in the Philippines). But one of my concerns is the financial requirements of being a sponsor. Cos my wife and I just bought a house and most of our savings went to the deposit, but both me and and my wife are working full-time. Is there a requirement that the sponsor has to have a certain amount of funds?

    Thanks @Linetdane . I've checked the eligibility requirements and I think I'll be able to meet them. I've been living here in Adelaide as PR since January 2019. I'm thinking of sponsoring my brother for visa 491 (he's in the Philippines). But one of my concerns is the financial requirements of being a sponsor. Cos my wife and I just bought a house and most of our savings went to the deposit, but both me and and my wife are working full-time. Is there a requirement that the sponsor has to have a certain amount of funds?

    Sorry I cant confirm this. Pero the docs that I uploaded was Utility Bills, Passport, Proof of relationship (birth certh family tree).

    Hello po.

    Ask ko lang po sana is there anyone from this group ang tnry na magtransfer sa ibang state out of the state n nag nominate sa visa niya?

    Currently 491 visa holder po ako under QLDS (offshore), however, may nag offer po sakin ng work sa nsw regional area. Plan ko na po sana tanggapin para maka enter na din po ako ng Australia. Ang hirap po kasi makakuha ng travel exemption unless my employer ka na.

    May mga nabasa at napanuod po kasi ako na puede daw magtransfer interstate ang 491 as long as pasok sa post code list ung lilipatan mo.

    Thank you po sa sasagot.

    Another question po, meron na po ba nakapag sponsor ng family dito for visa subclass 491? Any tips and advice?

    Hi you may want to check if the sponsor resides in one of the regional area listed in this website.

    https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skill-occupation-list/regional-postcodes

    Also below are the eligible sponsors.

    Please note that for the 491 family stream your occupation must be on the MLTSSL list. Your sponsor must be:

    18 years old or older
    usually resident in a designated area of Australia
    be an Australian citizen, an Australian permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen
    be your or your partner’s eligible relative

    An eligible relative can be:

    a parent
    a child or step-child
    a brother, sister, adoptive brother, adoptive sister, step-brother or step-sister
    an aunt, uncle, adoptive aunt, adoptive uncle, step-aunt or step-uncle
    a nephew, niece, adoptive nephew, adoptive niece, step-nephew or step-niece
    a grandparent, or
    a first cousin

    So, if the postal code is not listed, the sponsor is not eligible? My "possible" sponsor is staying in Tarneit Victoria (3029). :(

    Hi! Ask ko lang po kung sino ang may same experience sa case ko. Im onshore, on bridging visa A for 485 (postgrad), and I also received invitation to apply 491. I lodged the visa 491, bridging visa C na aku but not active. Need ko po ba na iwithdraw ang application ko sa 485 para maging active yung bridging visa ko for 491? Please advice. Thank you.
