In one of my previous threads I have mentioned some of my current emotional issues I am going through, i.e. my Son 21 and Daughter 17 returning to the UK to gain university education, due to it being so expensive as an international student, with the 475 visa I am on.
Anway as I was leaving work yesterday the CEO called me into his office and said would I like to stay back a bit and have a drink with him, of course I said yes, especially with me only been working for him for the past two weeks. We started chatting about everything - life in general. We got onto families so I mentioned that with not having PR we are not entitled to anything basically, rent assistance, benefits, medicare and especailly cheaper education and that only a couple days ago my two children stated that they are returning to the UK due to wanting an university education/qualifications and that on my visa it is too expensive as my children would be classed as international students, etc.
He then asked me if there is anything he could do to help me gain PR as soon as possible, i.e. sponsor you. I replied with "I am not sure". So my questions to everyone on here, who may have some experience of changing from a 475 visa to PR Visa whist residing in Adelaide.
1. Is this possible? And how do the CEO and I go about it.
2. The financial implications for both the CEO and my family of five
3. Any other implications/issues/conditions I need to be aware of
If I can gain PR, this will make it much easier for me to afford university here in Adelaide and my Son would also like to apply to the Fire Service and also the Police, which he could do with a PR Visa. I want to be happy with the offer of the CEO helping but I just cannot get there yet because I dont know what to do about it and if this is possible.
