Country of current residence? On a 457

Recommended Posts

Im filling in 47ES for my 856 visa application, for myself (primary) and my de facto partner.

 

I am living in Australia on a 457, and have been for last 3 years.

 

Question 16 asks:

 

Country of current residence?

 

Now bearing in mind that I am applying for residency for Australia, but have been living here for last 3 years, am I a resident of UK or Australia.

 

Thanks :dull:

"Country of current residence? "

 

Yes. I know the answers kind of on the tin here, but I still want clarification.

 

I live in a house in Australia.

However, I am applying to get residency in Australia.

 

Therefore am I a current resident of Australia or a visitor?

If you are currently living in Australia - that is your "current" country of residence.

 

Therefore am I a current resident of Australia or a visitor?

 

are you in Australia on a visitors/tourist visa for the last 3 years??

If you read the original question:

 

I am living in Australia on a 457

 

I am not sure how you define someone on a 457.

Perhaps I am a temporary resident.

Perhaps I am a resident from the UK working contractually for an Australian business.

you are a temporary resident of Australia. probably still domiciled in the UK but could maybe claim ordinary residence in the UK depending on your circumstances.

Yes I read the question - you are not a visitor of Australia - you are on a Long Stay Business Visa, which is a TR visa.

 

the question asks where are you "currently" living.

 

They know you are on a TR visa - if you have been working in Australia for the last 3 years you are no longer a UK resident (but you are a UK citizen). Working contractually for an Australian Business is noting to do with the question.
