Hi,

 

I have 457 Employer sponsorship Temp visa. To be eligible for 186 (permanent visa) immi website states that worker needs to work 2 years with the Employer. Before 457 visa granted, I already worked with the Company for nearly 1.7 years. My query is, does that period count to be eligible for 186 visa or I have to wait further 2 years?

 

Any comment, suggestion or previous experience will be appreciated.

 

Thanks in-advance

Pretty sure its the time that you have spent on the 457 with that employer, that way Immigration know that you have 100% been working for them long enough to waiver the requirment for a skills assessment.

If you do a skills assessment you could utilise the direct entry stream.
