From Temporary Visa to Permanent?

Recommended Posts

Someone has told me that if you are working over in OZ on a 457 employer sponsored visa that after two years the DIAC just "give you" permanent residency. Is this correct?

 

If this is right, how does it work? The person I know who is over there is working in a profession that is not on the MODL list.

 

It sounds a bit too good to be true to me. Any ideas??

No its not right you either apply for a skilled visa on your own or get your employer to sponsor you for pr ens . Diac just deal with visas . You have to apply for any visa

Cheers Maly........so if an employer decides to sponsor you for permanent residency, does that mean you don't have to go through the points test or skill assessment?
