I know I can't claim the super funds if I have a PR
application in, so I will wait to apply until I get my super funds and then apply for sponsorship and PR
Has anyone done this and what issues could I face if I go this route? Will I have problems with my 190 visa application if I withdraw my superfunds?
why would it be a problem?
You are eligible to withdraw your SAF , if you are leaving Oz for good.
Once you get your funds credited to your account,
You can apply to 190.
but,Remember, you must not have any outstanding payments to any AUS govt organizations.
