Hi everyone new to this forum. Am a chef in melbourne on 457 from last one year was wondering if i can apply for pr now or do o have to wait for the two years. I have read this in other threads to apply straight away i need to get my skills assessed which i guess i already did with HTA as a requirement for 457 visa. Please let me know of i can apply straight away, or wait for 2 years before i file my app? Thanx everyone.
