How This Visa Works
You have to be in Australia on a subclass 444 visa. Your family members included on the application can be in Australia or overseas. If they are in Australia, they would need to hold a substantive visa or a Bridging A, B or C visa. Once you lodge the application, they would receive a bridging visa allowing them to remain in Australia until your visa application is assessed.

In March 2018,457 visas were abolished and replaced with the completely new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa, Subclass 482.
The new TSS visa programme has two streams of occupations – short-term (STSOL) and long-term (MLTSSL) Only occupations on the MLTSSL list can apply for PR after 3 years. There are a bunch of other changes. Please visit Employer Sponsorship Visas to find out more.
If you held, or had applied for, a Subclass 457 visa as at April 18, 2017 then you can still meet transitional arrangements.
Temporary Residence Transition requirements which apply
New requirements apply (e.g. new age requirements and three -year transitional period on a temporary visa).
Living in Australia for at least two years (can be accumulative) in the last 5 years prior to lodging your visa you will automatically be granted a new 5 -year Permanent Residence Visa.
If you have spent less than 2 years in Australia, then you may be eligible for a one-year RRV. You would need to present ties you have to Australia such as employment, investment, family or business ties.
Speak to us how best to present your RRV application and what to do in the lag time between lodgement and assessment.
Sandeep Sharma applied for his Permanent Residence visa under subclass 186 Employer Nominated Sponsorship, after two years of being sponsored under a 457 Employer Sponsorship visa. His Permanent Visa was granted on August 2014.
I have been in Sydney, Australia for the last 6 years. I was referred to AustraliaMigrate by a friend of mine.
In the beginning, I was sponsored by my company under a 457 visa. As I would like to stay on in Australia, I applied for the visa Permanent Residence Visa (186).
The visa application process was complex and very challenging. AustraliaMigrate helped me to prepare and lodge my application in a limited time. My application was approved just within one week and my 457 long stay business visa was granted.
