Options after short term skilled migration visa

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Can anyone help explain a bit about the new skilled migration visas. I know there is a medium to long term skilled occupation list(up to 4 year visa) and a short term skilled occupation list (up to two year visa). If your occupation is on the short term list, after the 2 years that you are given do you HAVE to leave the country? As I know you can no longer apply for PR after this visa. What other options are there after your 2 years on this visa are up?

If you are only looking at sponsored visas such as a 457, then yes, the long term list allows a 4 year visa and the short term a 2 year extendable by a further 2 years. But, occupations on both lists may be eligible for a permanent visa from day one
