I am currently in Australia as a dependent on my husband's 457 visa. I am a nurse and would like to apply for permanent residency (independant). The visa wizard suggests the 175 visa for me but it says that I can apply for it in or out of Australia, but must be outside Australia when the visa is granted.
Does this mean that I simply have to fly out of Australia so that it is validated on my return? and if so, does DIAC contact you before it is granted so that you know to fly out of the country?
Or should I be applying for a different visa?
Please help! Thanks
