Ens - the direct entry stream

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have couple questions about THE DIRECT ENTRY STREAM.


Do you know how long it takes to get this visa?

My partner can apply in December for Direct entry stream on ENS or I can apply in August for Temporary Residence Transition stream because I'll be for 2 years on 457. What is better and faster way to get PR?


From immi web:

Choose the Direct Entry stream if you have never, or only briefly, worked in the Australian labour market and have not held a subclass 457 visa for the last two years, or if you are applying directly from outside Australia.


(my partner has 4 years experience from Australia and 2 years from our country and he can get positive skill assessment, but I'm not sure about this 'briefly worked in the Australian labour market' )


Thanks for advices.:biggrin:

With re. to the two different streams within the ENS I would think the processing times would be almost the same. Might be a good idea to talk to an immi agent. But again since the new streaming just started in July they need not have much exp. in it other than what was happening prior to the July 1st changes. We are using smsmigration and they are great in giving the right kind of advice. Pm me for more details.

The only way to get it done sooner might be a DRC application.

Don't judge even if you've walked a mile in their shoes. They haven't walked in yours yet!

We got visa 856 through ENS took two weeks to come through when will submitted all our paperwork, the longest part was waiting for the ENS number which took around 6 months but this was done prior 1st July.
