Hi all,

Newbie to the forum.

I moved to Melbourne, VIC in Jan this year on a 457 visa. I am an ICT specialist. I am keen on applying for a PR but am quite confused by the variety of options.

Should I apply for a state sponsorship (VIC) and then for a 175 OR should I just apply for a 176? I would have supposed the former option better since I read that state sponsorship cases have higher priority over the "plain vanilla" GSM? What would be faster?

Is there any other/better option to move from a 457 to PR? ... and would the changes planned for 01st July 2012 (SkillSelect) make any difference to my case?

Thanks for hearing me out!

Cheers.
