Permanent Residency

Hi everyone, wonder if anyone can help. My husband and I have a temporary shortage skill visa and would like to apply for permanent residence. My understanding is that permanent residencies are not being accepted because of the current situation, but we can still apply for expression of interest?, Also, I have the visa which is electronic on my passport which is currently expired and I am unable to obtain a new one since I need to go in person to the Embassy in Canberra and because of the situation, it is very difficult, would the system or expression of interest would still allow me to input my details even if the expiration date of the passport is finished?? the main applicant would be my husband, but i assume i have to put my details too and even though my visa is electronic on my current passport, it is expired.

Hi Alicia,

The Department is still processing Permanent Visas. However, you are correct regarding the Points Tested Visas. Basically, States are not nominating at the moment because they are waiting for the Government's allocation of state nomination places for 2020/2021. However, you can still submit an Expression of Interest in the meantime.

Regarding your passport expiry date, I will not lie to you, but I have never drafted an EOI for someone whose passport is expired. Hopefully another agent can help you.

Good luck

Thank you very much for your reply . I really don’t know what the best think to do is , even though like I said I am not the main applicant it don’t even know if the EOI system would allow me to input my passport details with an expiry date 😞 just don’t want to delay it to much since I know PR process will take even longer than before
