upgrading from 457 to a PR status

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am likely to be needing to change jobs soon, due to company being sold.

 

I have been working for 12 months for my sponsor on a 457.

 

Am I able to apply now for PR status (i know it takes a few months to come through) or do i have to wait two years before I can even apply?

 

any help would be fab,

 

thanks

I believe if your company sponsors you, you can apply at any time but if you have been there less than two years you will need to do a skills assessment.

If you are relying on your 457 emplolyment to satisfy various criteria applicable to employer nomination, you must have been working in Australia for at least 2 years, and the last 12 months must be with the nominating employer.

 

Many 457 occupations are not skilled occupation lists.

 

You might have other options.

 

I suggest you run your case past a registered migration agent.
