Hi, I just need some information regarding 491 family sponsor visa.
I have received a family sponsor visa through my relative who lives in Canberra and I have few questions before accepting this invitation. Can someone please answer them for me

1- when I get my visa approved, do I need to lock myself in Canberra or any regional area will be fine?
2- what happens if I am unable to find a job in Canberra, will I be allowed to change to any other regional place?
3-In that 53900$ set target to be eligible for 191, Can I combine earning through ABN(uber) and TFN(job)? And is it calculated from July to July or date od approval to 3 years of time?
please share this information

Usually the regional area must be same as of your sponsor
what happens if I am unable to find a job in Canberra, will I be allowed to change to any other regional place?
Only with the permission of your state

Should be fine as long as you can provide the official tax records and payment evidences . @MysticRiver to comment

Hi
I just read your post and have a query as I am also exploring this visa pathway. How the sponsoring relative was related to you? Is the first cousin of my spouse eligible to sponsor us?

Thanks in advance

Hello everyone! Does someone know if working as an Uber Driver would be considered as a second job to achieve the 53.900/year income in order to apply for PR being under the 491 visa? Thank you in advance!

Be it relevant or non-relevant to your nominated occupation, you can work in as many jobs you want to meet the income requirement.

Subclass 191 will open in November 2022 only. Exactly 3 years, after the opening of subclass 491.

Hi,

Congrats for getting the visa. You must be well-settled by now.
Since you might have done this recently, please share what documents you used to prove relationship with relative for 491 family sponsored visa.
Thanks very much
