Hello Bligs! Please I'm in between options, despite my research I lack concrete information to decide (I've applied to both an Australian and Uk uni for masters).
Please can you expatiate on how one can attain a PR via study route, from Australia? Agents in Nigeria keep saying, when you get to Australia, you will meet your peers and learn how to get PR. 2 years PGWP is the only thing that sounds sure.

A student I'm speaking with in Australia, says even if your course is under the skilled list, there is just a slim chance that you will get a PR. Same student went further to say that most persons are being asked to leave the country after studies, that Australia is not as it used to be.... I read a couple of stories on NL where people are seeming to say that what they thought they knew about the PR via study route is not what they are experiencing in Australia.

Please and please, educate me on why you're suggesting the study route, is it really a better option? My alternative move is to go for the UK, and depending on the opportunities that come with the new 2yrs PGWP, I can still decide to move to Australia or Canada via Skilled immigration or EE.

Please other guru's in the house, also throw more pointers for me, from your experience. I believe in the multitude of counsel....



bligs:
The points are not reducing, those that are waiting should give study route a shot if financially bouyant or opt for Canadian PR.

In as much as studying doesn't guarantee a PR, it gives you an edge because the new 491 visa favours those onshore but the problems most students are having are lack of information and ability to utilize their 2years post study work visa judiciously until it runs out.
My advice for those intending to come through the study route is to ditch NSW and Victoria unless you are sure of getting 90points or more after studying and who knows point may have increase before you are done with schooling, opt for other states and make sure your course is always on their skill nomination list which makes you stand a chance for 190 or better still 491.

@sumji, as Bligs mentioned, 491 is the new gold, although it has it benefits which includes Medicare, it's still not PR but pathway to PR.
This means you'll do
Masters 2 years
PGWV 2 years
491 visa 3 years before you can apply for PR
PR - indefinite.

You may be lucky to get 491 even before your 2 years PGW visa expires.


Also note that only 2 years degree and above will qualify you for PGW. Anything less than that, no PGW visa

If your course/occupation is not a competitive one, I'd advise you go opt for the student route.

Please does Australia have settlement plans like Canada? I mean a group that ensures their PR immigrants settle-in by providing training ( usually free) on courses , mentoring, etc?

880 is the normal processing fee which takes 12 weeks or more. 880+600 is for priority processing which takes about two or three weeks if your documents are intact. I don't know about the 112, I'm guessing that's for onshore applicants.

Thanks so much!! Your response means a lot to me. I'll do an intensive research on the 491 Visa, over the weekend. Great direction/pointer!

Please how would you suggest that a student utilizes the 2yrs PSWV? Is it by securing a job before one graduates or what angle are you speaking from please?

Re: DIY Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa - Part 2 by Sumji: 12:51am On Feb 28
Thanks a million for the extra breakdown. It's becoming clearer. The course I applied for fits the bill (2yrs/skilled list).
One is looking at 5-7years before PR... Okay. This gives my research focus, cause now I know what to look out for. Thanks!

Can you kindly throw more light on what increases people's "luck" in getting the 491 visa before the 2yrs PGWV expires? It's very critical..

More grease to your efforts sir!

Most students have the opinion that 2years is long enough to get a PR and this make them feel relaxed which is not totally true as getting PR in some occupation may takes longer.
If your course is highly competitive and your points is no where near the minimum requirements for your occupation, move to a regional area and explore the opportunity there or enrol in a short program that will lead to nomination.
A lot of people are fixated to Melbourne and Sydney waiting for PR that's not forthcoming and saying there's no job in the regional areas but on the contrary people in those places are surviving.
It is better to be in a regional area and get your PR between 3 to 5years then move to a place of your choice than to be in the city running around a circle.
PS: Tasmania is not a bad place but opportunities there are limited compared to other places like VIC and NSW, their 491 is favourable to those onshore and yet most people won't give it a second thought.

Normal processing is 880
Priority processing is 1480.
You only choose either of the two.

You can send someone in Lagos to go to Alagbon on your behalf to apply. They will collect your fingerprint via scan or you can apply through a third party website online here
