applying for a working visa in oz.

I was wondering if i came to Australia and decided to stay how would one go about applying to stay there permanently? I would be coming on a evisitor visa.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You would need to meet the criteria for Permanent residence in order to stay permently, there is no route from a evisitor to Permanent residence.

If you are under 31 you might qualify for a 417 Working Holiday Visa, this will let you work and stay for a year. Other than that you would need to have the skills for an employer to sponsor you temporarily but you still would need to meet the criteria for permanent residence to stay permently.
