I wonder if any has any experience of the special circumstances and applying for PR if a 457 is granted and your in the 45-50 year age band....
I am in the running for a job (no offer yet) that comes with an Employee Sponsored 457.
Unfortunately I turn 45 in October this year (2011)
If the visa is granted under the special circumstances for 45-50 year olds, would that also mean my future application for PR after 2 years in Aus would be looked on favourably as at that time I could be 47 or even 48??
Any help / comments or experiences would be gratefully welcome as the big fear for us is going over on the 457 - then getting PR knocked back once there.
