08/11 – 10/11/2017 MIA 移民界年会更新

Bella Tian 代表Open Migration 参加2017年MIA移民界年会。三天的会议行程很充实,Bella也在其中发现了以下几个很有趣的信息:

在Ben Meagher 先生(澳洲移民局负责人)的演讲中,他有提到有关457转186/187PR一个很重要的信息

-        在2017年4月18日之前申请的457签证申请人,并且目前已获批457签证;以及

-        在2017年4月18日之前申请的457签证申请人,但是目前457签证仍在审核中


以上两种申请人均可在持有457 签证2年后申请186/187,在确保满足186/187签证要求的条件下。但是在2017年4月18日之后递交或者下批的457签证,依然要等待3年才能够转186/187PR。


Open Migration 将会继续跟进457转186/187的具体事宜,会再跟移民局进行书面确认,具体细节移民局会发通告告知。
