Subclass 485 to subclass 885

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if my visa subclass 485 (temporary resident visa) is granted and I lodge my subclass 885 visa before I leave Australia, will it take longer than usual to have the 885 granted?

Have anyone tried this before?

Thanks so much!

It is likely that any PR visa application will be in a queue for a while and you may be best to spend your 485 time seeking employment that could lead to an employer sponsored visa as one option.
If you travel on your 485 visa, you'll need to be back in Australia before it expires and then for any travel after the 485 expires and while waiting for an 885 you would need to get a Bridging visa B.

thanks for your reply

I have already got a full-time employment at the moment. The reason that I applied 485 after I was graduated was because I could not get straight 7 for the IELTS. Eventually, I got straight 7 right now and I have already done my police record check and have it sent to Australia immigration office.

I am just worry that when I have my 485 granted and lodge 885 before I travel, my 885 application would not be processed in the priority queue or being rejected while I am overseas....

The 885 could likely be in the queue for a while before even getting to a stage for being processed and when planning to travel out of Australia you should then put in a change notice - form 1022 and if your application gets to a stage close to final granting while you are abroad they would inform you that you need to be in Australia for granting.

For an 885 visa application processing?
Possibly more like two years or more.
Have a look at Client Service Charter for an indication but do note variations will occur.
You may want to consider whether your application will be on a State Migration Plan [ expected to be announced on/or after July01 ] to get a higher priority processing.

Thanks a lot.

So do you mean if I apply subclass 885 on/after 1 July 2010, my application is not on the priority processing queue even though I have my IETLS score 7 with an accounting degree?

There is no longer any MODL or CSL and you need to have a read of changes that will come about on July01 and after http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...processing.pdf for priority processing but check out the What's New link on Immi skilled visas pages and also a number of sticky info and discussion threads at top of this section.

485 to 885

Hi I am in process of submitting my 485 application online and stuck at one point.Checklist requires to provide evidence of arrangement of medical examination.I have taken the booking referrence number as per new rule. But i want to know how to attach documents in this field as booking number was provided over phone. Rest of the documents i have scanned and submitted online.


Another question is Once i get Subclass 485 (18 months) can i apply for Subclass 885 either on work expereince basis or on IELTS basis.
Currently i have 15 points for IELTS and i am overall short of 5 points for 885.

Please advise that can i give IELTS later after 6 months in next 18 months and apply 885?
Or is it only work expereince is required after 6 months time frames is passed to make 10 points.

Regards
Vick

Is there not provision for entering the ME booking number?
You can apply for the 885 visa anytime and obviously best not to do until you're eligible.
For Australian work experience points you need a minimum of 12 months experience after your qualifications have been achieved - http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...experience.htm
