By ryan leeHi Guys
Currently I am holding 457 for 1 year and 2 months, regarding to the new rules from march, 2018, do I need to wait another 1 year and 10 months to apply the pr(3 years requirement from march 2018)?
Or I could start to apply pr after 10 months?
Many thanks if anyone could answer my questions
By whoiamThis timeline and info thread is for those who have lodged their applications post 1st July,2012, under the new skillselect scheme.
The Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186) is for skilled workers from outside Australia or skilled temporary residents who currently live and work in Australia. It is part of the permanent Employer Sponsored visa program.
To apply for this visa, you must:
be nominated by an approved employer be younger than 50 years of age meet the skills and qualifications requirements meet English language requirements. If you are nominated to apply for this visa, you must lodge your application online within six months of the date the nomination was approved.
When you apply, you must select one of the visa’s three streams.
Choose the Temporary Residence Transition stream if you are a subclass 457 visa holder who has worked for your employer for two years in the nominated occupation and your employer wants to offer you a permanent position in that occupation. Choose the Direct Entry stream if you have never, or only briefly, worked in the Australian labour market and have not held a subclass 457 visa for the last two years, or if you are applying directly from outside Australia. Choose the Agreement stream if you are being sponsored by an employer through a tailored and negotiated labour agreement or regional migration agreement.
By Mark TurnerHey. I've been working in Australia since March 2013 on a 417 which I migrated to a 457 in January 2014.
I'm in the process of applying for a 186. The nomination was lodged on the 30th November 2016 & approved on 28 June 2017.
I currently have two issues with regards to completing the application:
• There is a question during application: “Has any applicant overstayed a visa in any country (including Australia)?”
Unfortunately the answer to the first is YES. I overstayed my South African tourist visa by 1-5 days (can confirm) in 2010 - this was due to having to book a later flight with friend.
• The visa is asking for a skills assessment - “Does the application have a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority, which is ont for a Subclass 485 (Temporary Graduate) visa?”
I’d like to know whether it’s necessary to undertake a skills assessment? Since I have worked for the current employer for 4+
Any help & or further advice will be greatly appreciated.
I got possitive skill assessment and assessed my working experience for 2 years last year(Total 5 years working experience overseas and years to be deducted to 2 years due to unrelated degree), and then I worked additional 1 year in Australia in nominated position. Am I eligible for 186 Direct Entry now or do i have to renew my skill assessment? Thanks a lot for your advice.
