      Thanks for this info.

      I roughly knew what the SIR visa route was but this explains it much more.

      When we applied 9 years ago this did not exist in this form.

      We came out on a Permanent Residency business owner visa (495 I think).

      Unfortunately we were unlucky and were "randomly" picked for regular surveys and interviews.We did feel under pressure but it worked out. :o
