Recommended Posts

HI

Yes, as long as you can show you have made every effort to stay in the job for two years you will be fine.

 

​Unless you burn the company down, it isn't your fault they have closed. ;-)

You have got a permanent visa.

 

Your company getting sold, does not mean you are going to lose your job.

You have got a permanent visa. Your company getting sold, does not mean you are going to lose your job.

That is true, if the company is sold, but you still have a job then you will be expected to stay in it until the two years is up.

Yes you can apply for Citizenship, you need to be here 4 years, 12 months of which on PR. An 857 is a PR visa.
