Permanent Residency (PR) for Australia

Become a permanent resident of Australia by applying for and been granted a permanent visa that allows you to remain in Australia indefinitely. The most common permanent visas include some skilled work and family visas.

The best and easiest way I find to get Permanent Visa Australia is to apply for any skill visa Australia. In Australia there are shortage of workers in some fields so they provide special attention to those who came with a skill visa by providing permanent visa for them. I am listing some of the skill visa which I think you should know before applying for PR Visa Australia :-

Skilled Independent Subclass 189:- This visa provides an opportunity for all the skilled workers who are not sponsored by family, or employer. The only thing about this visa is that one can apply for this visa after invitation only. To obtain an invitation one need to first submit the Expression of Interest (EOI). One is also eligible to include eligible family member in the same visa application.

Skilled Nominated Subclass 190:- This is a special category visa because in this visa applicant is nominated or sponsored by state or territory. This is again a permanent resident, but the applicant has a clause that he must stay in his/her nominated state for the first 2 years of the PR term (which is 5 years), then he/she is free to move to any state. This visa allows applicants to stay in particular states where there is a shortage of workers. One needs to submit Expression of Interest under Skill Select within 60 days of invitation.


Check on Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection for the appropriate visa subclass that suits your circumstances and motives.
