    PR after 457 transfer

    hello, I have currently worked for 2 years on a 4-year 457 visa, and I am considering transferring my visa to a new employer. I have two questions: - Since my visa expires in 05/2020, I will not be able to work for 2 consecutive years for the new employer. In this case, will there be any possibility for this new employer to sponsor me for PR? - After the expiry of this 457 visa (in 05/2020), what are the possibilities to keep working for this new employer? Could they sponsor me for a new 482 visa? And, how long would it be until I am eligible for PR sponsorship? Should I wait 3 new years for PR (until 2023), or would the previous years on the 457 count towards that period? Thanks!!
  2. We moved to Australia from the UK last December on a 457 visa with my husband as primary applicant. We had planned on applying for permanent residency after 2 years cos hubby has a permanent job contract here. Then after 4 months the immigration rules changed and it seems that on paper we are no longer eligible for PR due to my husbands age. Please tell us there is some kind of grandfathering or exemption rule for people in our situation?? We have started a petition to hopefully get our case looked at and I would be really really grateful if you could have a look at it and sign it if you can, also if you could forward it to family, friends, neighbours, anyone you can think of to sign too. Go to https://www.change.org/p/peter-dutton-give-me-the-chance-to-apply-for-pr-from-a-457-visa-granted-before-age-limit-dropped-to-45?recruiter=775352431&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive Thank you in advance

  4. Hello, Im in need of any advice/guidance for what has become quite a complicated process from 457 visa to PR. My partner has been on a 457 sponsored visa since July 2012. We only had the visa approved for two years and it will expire in two weeks. His employer agreed to nominate us for the 186 subclass employer nomination visa under the Temporary Residence Transition scheme. We were advised from the Dept of Immigration that it is "risky" but we would have to lodge both the nomination and our application on the last day that our 457 visa expires as we won't be eligible for it before. However we have since learnt that my partners employer has already put in the nomination 4 weeks ago without us knowing and received an acknowledgement and TRN number. Its my understanding and info from immigration that if we now apply for this visa it will be cancelled as they nominated us before the 2 years had been completed on the 457 visa. Fortunately we have not started or paid any of our application, just gathered all our documents/evidence. Does anyone know if my partners employer could cancel this and do another nomination through the direct entry scheme? and if my partner needs a skills assessment (as required for direct entry) could this be completed after we put in the application as we are running out of time? Or any other ideas whatsoever? Thank you for any advice/info.
  5. Hi All Some advice if you can please. My brother is 18 months into a 4 year 457 visa. He would like to apply for PR later on this year but at the ripe old age of 51, it seems he is not eligible. He does not earn a high level income, under $100k per annum but he is a director of one of his employer's companies. Is there any way he will be able to apply for PR or will it be a case of renewing his 457 for the long term. Every visa I look at that seems appropriate is now closed.
  6. Hi Forum, Myself on a 457 visa and looking to get permanent residency. My question is - I have white coat hypertension and am a nervous wreck when it comes to BP check. This is only, the time when my bp is monitored and on all other times, am very much normal. Indeed the doctors who checked me last time back in my country made me ran through series of tests which all came back normal including the ECG, Echo cardiogram and serum tests. I am from a high risk country and my weight is about 5 kilos more than what it should be for my height. I am neither diabetic nor have high cholesterol / have any other disease. I am in my late 20's. Please suggest if this would pose a concern for my health assessment. Thanks everyone. NP
  7. Hi All, My situation is this: My employer has sponsored me in applying for a 856(subclass 121) PR visa from a 457 working visa. Everything has been lodged and paid for but has not yet been approved. I am wondering what happens if i am made redundant before it is approved. Apparently there is another 5-6 weeks before it is approved, and if s#*t hits the fan i might be out of the job in 2 weeks. The questions i have are: - Is the application still valid and will it be approved if i am made redundant? - If the company is declared bankrupt in the mean time will it be approved? - If i am seeing out a notice period will it be approved? - If i take unpaid leave will it be approved? I hope someone can help with these questions. Cheers, Darren
  8. Hi, I have been on a 457 visa for more than two years, and we were about to apply for permanent residency through the ENS now. I’m still waiting for my Australian police clearance to arrive, but my employer has nominated me, I’ve done the IELTS test and have all the other documents at hand as well. We’ve been told that there is currently a 5-8 months waiting period if we apply through the “old system” and that there is a transitional period that allows us to apply for permanent residency (ENS) as per the “old rules” even after the 1st July, should we choose to wait for the police clearance to arrive. My questions would be: - Can we expect a shorter decision period within SkillSelect and should we hold off with the application until the new system is introduced? - Is there really a transitional period for ENS PR applications that would allow us to apply under the “old rules” next week, so we could attach the police clearance as well with the application? Thanks for your help, Peter

    457 to perm residency

    Hi all, need some help. My husband worked in this country for two years on a 457 visa , he changed employers due to being made redundant after the first year, and is now happy with current employer. We were bouncing along nicely as they agreed to sponsor pr in July this year, when he has worked for them for 12 months. I now find that this may not be the case as there have been some changes to the visas from 1st july this year. Does these changes mean that we now have to wait 2 years, or if your already on a 457 visa do the old rules still apply. I hope it doesnt mean we have to wait as he will be 50 if we do. Thanks all.

Is there anyone did this before??............please help..........time is running out now....or anyone know any good agents who charge you less for advice........and assistance.........
