need some help / advice and v grateful for any given.
Been here since 2008 on 495 Skilled Independent Regional Visa. About to go for 887 PR visa having completed 2 years living here and 2 years working full time (even though only 1 required so all should be well there).
When I originally applied for this visa I was told by migration agent that once I got PR 2 years down the line I would then be obligated to stay here in SA for a further 2 years! So 4 years in total. Is this true ? Does anyone know? I have called DIAC twice now and they tell me that this is not the case and I could move interstate if I wanted to once PR has been granted - unless I signed a declaration to say I should stay. But I have checked all paperwork I signed and can only find references to 2 years obligation to stay in SA to get PR - NOT 4. Have PR visa options changed in the last 2 years ? Why would she have told me that ? I know I got that info from agent 2 years ago, but this contradicting info is confusing and I would love to know for sure whether we are allowed to move interstate if we want to. Not that we want to particularly but you never know what's around the corner do you?
thanks all, most appreciative of any info anyone can supply
