Skilled Independent (In progress) + Work Permit (likely)


I have applied last year for a Skilled Independent Visa. It may take a few more months for me to get it.
I would like to know:

1) If I get a job offer while my PR Visa is still in processing, will there be any hurdles when I fill in the form for a Work Permit Visa ? Does the latter take longer now ?

2)Do I need to notify the DIAC about the fact that I will be then in Australia in case my PR Visa is ready ? How can I manage things like Police clearance and Medical check ups since I will then be in Australia ?

3) Does the PR processing speed up if I mention about a job offer ?

Thanks !!

Hi Folks,

I am now calculating the pros and cons of independent (175) v/s employer sponsored.

I find that 175 is taking 18-24 months but employer sponsor is taking 9-12 months.

Since I'm having 10+ years exp with PMP, CBAP certification, I think I can find a job and I should go via employer sponsored route..

Should I consider any other aspect apart from time-lines..

I'm sure you guys would have done this analysis so please help me in taking decision.
