Employer Sponsored Direct Entry Stream

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am looking for some advice... Last year I was sponsored by my employer for a 457 visa, however due to the HR assistant not knowing much about immigration she just put down for 18months and thought we could extend it later. Not as easy as it sounds as they would need to nominate me for a 457 again and we would have to pay the fee. We want to apply for PR however we are 6 months short on our current 457.

 

Yesterday a friend said, you can apply for PR through the direct entry scheme. I am a primary teacher and am on the consolidated list. When I was completing my 457, I submitted my degree for a skills assessment however it wasn't actually needed for the 457. Does this help when applying for the 186 visa?

 

I would appreciate any advice on what the best option is as I really want to get the ball rolling!

 

Cheers,

Allison

Yes, you need the skills assessment for direct entry. Did you actually get your skills assessment back? How long ago?

Yes I got the certificate about 6 months ago. Supposedly it's valid for 2 years?
