Yes, my b/f has applied for his residency, he applied whilst here. Be warned though-its a lot of money and takes ages but i suppose if your partner has points then you should be ok. I thought that you would be put on his visa though!??
Also if you do 3 months harvest work you can now apply for another 12 month visa.
Actually if you apply for your permanent residensy whilst on your working holiday visa and that runs out before you've heard from them, then you get put on a bridging visa which gives you full working rights etc, so you can stay here until you hear!
Hope this is of some help to you!!
I may be applying for my own permanent residensy myself within the next couple of years-who knows!!
really? wow considering we lock refugees up in detntion centres i am suprised we are so nice to english ppl wanting to migrate due to the weather..... strange immigration policy....
There's a big difference between a skilled migrant and a refugee Lou. Refugees claim refugee status and the ones that land here then claim that status arrive without visas therefore are unlawful non-citizens; that claim then has to be investigated as to whether its real, or not. Skilled migrants also have to jump through hoops but when they arrive they usually have a visa. If they don't they apply from offshore and can't arrive until they have approval. If refugees were allowed out into the community we would never see most of them ever again so they have to be detained. I'm not a big fan of the current detention centres, but then I'm also not a fan of illegal immigrants; they must be deterred. Look to Europe as an example of illegal migration out of control.
But to the point, Adonis. Yes, you can apply for permanent residency from within Australia. If you email me from this site I can give you more details of where to start.
how much for a skilled migrant working visa?
