Advice needed on which visa to lodge

Hi everyone,

I am needing advice on which visa to lodge. I am planning to apply for PR here in Australia- I am currently on a 457 visa- been in Australia since 20/5/2015- and have worked in Sydney for a year- I have just recently moved to South Australia in a country town for another job.

I was wondering, which is the best visa to apply for PR? I currently have 55 points- I am working in a health sector that is listed in the SOL list. Below are the scores obtained, (except the bold sentence, not too sure about that):



1824 years


English language ability

Test results must be no older than three years immediately before the day on which the visa application was made.

Proficient English


Skilled employment

In Australia: skilled employment in your nominated skilled occupation or a closely related skilled occupation

In skilled employment for at least one but less than three years (of the past 10 years)


At least a bachelor degree from an Australian educational institution or other degree of a recognised standard


Study in regional Australia or a low population growth metropolitan area (excluding distance education)


For the bolded sentence, is it only limited to studying and living in Australia?

Would appreciate any advice given,

Thank you in advance
