We are on a 457 visa at the mo and have a few questions. Been here nearly a year and was wondering if we can apply for PR now or have to wait for 2 years. Also, as we are here, will we have to have medicals done,police checks etc? Are credit checks done back in the UK to see if we have left any debt or have bad credit?
As we are on a 457 visa, which visa would we be applying for, for PR and how much would this be for a family of 4 roughly?
Any other info would be great too - pitfalls, best way to do it, what you dont need to do?
