Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Could somebody please clarify whether i can apply for PR whilst on a 457 business class ( 4 years)?? Talking to work colleagues, they say i can, and it goes on points. I have applied for E.O.I ( expression of interest) on line, but would i be best to apply straight ( thats if i can ??). I really would be grateful of your advise/guidance!!

 

I am a nurse, 7 years experience ( but 20 years altogether in the field), irish, my partner is 41 and has 20 years as a carpenter, is from wales.

 

Any info welcomed,

 

Gx

Yes,you can either apply for independent skilled migration which does not need to have your employer to sponsor you, and for this you would look at points and EOI. Or you can go through the ENS (186/187 visa) route where you do not need to do an EOI or worry about points, but your employer must nominate you - similar to the 457 visa process.
