How to get Permanent Residence after visa 485?
Take into consideration that you’re required to apply for visa 485 with 6 months after your courses complete (as stated in your completion letters), this decision is likely to affect your long-term plan and future.

So, how would you decide?

☝️Firstly, you need to know what exactly do YOU want:

  • Establish a career, get a job to gain industry experience and return to your country to settle after visa 485 ends?
  • Consider another country?
  • Or REALLY want to get Permanent Residence in Australia?

✌️After knowing what you wish to achieve, let’s get started with the plan!

As you all might have known from news, words of mouth or observation, getting invited to apply for PR is extremely difficult due to the constant changes and vigorous competitions in most of the occupations.

? Accounting: invitation ceilling is intended to be 3753; though, only 300 were invited.
? Engineering: only 230 invitations was sent out for Civil Engineering Professionals as opposed to the ceiling of 3510. Same goes for other Engineering occupations
? IT: Solfware and Applicatios Programmes invitation ceiling is 7271 but only 581 applicants was invited. Or for Computer Network Professionals, only 173 invitations was sent as opposed to the ceiling of 2167. Same goes for other IT occupations

(Many students misunderstand that you can study another degree to apply for visa 485 again)

 Should you move to different states that are less competitive such as Darwin, Tasmania, Perth, Adelaide, … where the points required for invitation only ranked 65-70 points. Moreover, these states nominate many occupations in SKILLED SHORTLIST (Marketing, Finance, Design, Science, etc)
