Hi there ,

What about if I choose to change job- career as A Critical skills visa holder .
The problem is that I do not like my current job anymore .(The one that my CSV is based on) and It's impossible to stay there I feel trapped to be honest and I really would like to check my options .
I am not sure a if I had to apply once again (as job in a totally different field)or there are some quick solutions first not working for them and of course not having troubles in general ?

Any information or better experience will be much appreciated

Take Care

Why don't you apply for PR based on your critical skills? It looks like the turn around for those is pretty quick and then you can change jobs.

DHA does not allow for a change of conditions on a CSV. If you want to change careers you'll have to go through the whole qualifying process again.

As the previous poster said, apply for PR, it takes 3-4 months based upon exceptional skills

"DHA does not allow for a change of conditions on a CSV" - Are you sure? I have a 1-year CSV obtained from my home country and after securing a job I will now be applying for a 5-year CSV. I've been advised to apply under 'Change of Conditions' (and not 'Renewal') by several people. Would you say that's incorrect? Thanks.
