applying for permanent residency visa

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

    Can anyone tell us if they have had to get a bridging visa whilst applying for permanent residency because their 475 visa is about to expire when applying and what this entails.

     

    Thanks

    You automatically get one when you apply for an 887 visa. They take away your 475 status.

    If you are applying for the bridging visa as you need more time to fulfill the 475 visa requirements..I'm not quite sure. Had a friend who did it..was quite straightforward. Need to contact immi.

    Hi Nick Im sure this has been asked before..

     

     

    Our SIR 495 visa was done by an agent in UK by paper.

     

    We are nearly ready to apply for permanecy having satisfied the requirements.

     

    I tried to look how to apply on line and I just cant find the right place to go ?

     

    Do we need to apply by paper cos the original was done that way ?

     

    or should I just call Immi and ask them ?

    I know you asked Nick this question, but for info, no reason why you can't do it electronically. Here's the DIAC link for how to apply for the 887:

     

    Skilled – Regional (Residence) visa (subclass 887)

     

    You'll see that one of the headings is about applying electronically; clicking this takes you straight there.

     

    Cheers, Jim

    Can be done either way. My advice is to do it online....we did a paper application and took 6 months as opposed to 2/3 weeks online.

    Thanks I did try that last night when very tired and it came up with a message saying that we were over 45.

    Then I tried again it it asked for a TRN and password.
