How to convert Temporary to Permanent Resident

Recommended Posts

Guest reginekang

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I found it interesting as many people can share with each others their experience and knowledge on whatever topics. It's really helpful.


I will appreciate if anyone could advise me on the following:


My family and I have obtained my Temporary Residence status expering Nov 2013 by virtue of visa 457 thru a sponsorship and am wondering how to go about converting it to Permanent Residence (PR) and when is the best time to start applying.


Any advise will be appreciated. Thanks

There are a lot of variables.

OH's employer is going to sponsor us.
