.i would rely on Maggie's knowledge more than mine so deleting my comment.
Hi, I'm on a 189 PR Visa.
The rules state I must live in Australia for 4 years with less than 12 months away and more than 12 months PR.
I arrived in August 2015. In August 2019 it will be 4 years. I have spent 6 months outside of Australia (does this have to be added on?).
So let's say I leave Australia in June 2019. Technically I would be 2 months short. But what if I just use those 2 months as time out of Australia and just wait until August and apply then? Even if I'm working in another country.
1. Is that possible?
2. Can you apply from abroad?
