Hi Guys,

Just discussing with my friend about PR application in subclass 189.

My friends seem to have different views about applying independently or using a lawyer. Some say that you get it much quicker if you apply by yourself. Is that true?Or is it faster with a lawyer?

Also, I am planning to apply as an Engineering Technologist with 60 points, which is the minimum. Do I have any chance of getting an EOI with 60 points?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,

There is no reason why you can't do it yourself...follow the step by step...get all your certified documentation together...
I managed to do my 457 & 190 visa myself, with the help of people off here that had also been through the process...

Thank you for your reply.

Well I can do it by myself but I heard from my friends that you processing speeds up of you do it through lawyer.
Not sure really. All I am concerned about is the processing time.
Can you shed some light on it?
Thanks

See if u apply through a lawyer..u dnt have to worry about making any mistake..just submit him all the required docs and the entire process will be taken care of..but remember there is nothing out of the box he can do to get you a PR..plus you have to pay him a lot money..goodluck!!
