My name is Hamza, i'm 26 yo, i was born and grew up in Tunisia.

Actually working as an seo manger (Web Marketing) for 1 year in Tunisia. 

My Sister lives in Australia (New South Wales - Brighton le sands - 2216) and already holds a subclass 189, she encouraged me to apply for a visa to live in Australia, i really appreciate Australia and i want to live close to my sister and my niece. they are all what i got.


I just want to ask you a few questions about the visa choice:

- Can my sister who already holds a subclass 189 sponsor me ? 

- Does Brighton le sands is one of the designated areas ? 

- Is it better for me to apply for a subclass 489 or a subclass 189 ?

  And does it make a difference that i have family there ?

- Is there any immigration agent or office in Tunisia that i can trust ?

For her to sponsor you on a Work Visa will be tough, unless she can establish you are a dependant.  Its normally reserved for spouses and children.  But I have seen brothers and sisters.


There are a number of facts I need to know to really help.


Your sister, is she married, or living with someone here (you mention a niece).  Is her partner Aussie, PR or sponsored too?


You probably should look at applying for a skilled immigrant Visa.
