I'm currently being sponsored by my company but want to know how long before I can apply to become a permanent resident? So I have a few questions I need answered.

How many years do you need to be in australia before you can apply?
How much does it cost?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks folks.

You can apply at any time for PR if you meet the Criteria, there is no minimum time you have to live in Australia to get PR you just have to meet the criteria for PR.

If you don't have a skills assessment you can work for 2 years on a 457 sponsored visa and then apply for PR if the employer agrees and you meet the criteria.

It all comes down to meeting the criteria and jumping through the hoops.

The VAC starts at $3060, then you have to add the cost of Medicals/X-Rays, Penal Certificates, and Skills assessment/Agent fee if required. All in realistically between $4000-$8000
