I am an Indian working in Ireland, My 457 Visa is on process,
Can anyone tell me , what is the earliest time i can apply for a permenant residency, once i'm in australia.
You can apply for a PR the day you arrive in AU. However many people wait for 2 yrs on the 457 as then some of the requirements for PR are exempt.
A common path to PR is ENS (employee sponsorship for a PR if you are already on a 457 here). This gets processed within a few months and has the highest level of priority processing.
Thanks amaslam, Now i need to find out what are the requirements to apply for the PR without waiting for 2 years
The requirements are found here... Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 121/856)Thanks amaslam, Now i need to find out what are the requirements to apply for the PR without waiting for 2 years
