拿了491签证之后如何在3年内换成PR?

491 Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) visa 可以允许持有人在澳洲居住生活工作,有5年的有效期。移民局希望491持有人在澳洲边远地区做足3年的贡献,每年Taxable income 达到$53900, 然后申请转PR 191签证。同时对这个签证的持有人移民局对各类PR签证都放了3年内不可以申请批准其他签证的规定。 比如

189.224

(1)  If, at the time of application:

(a)  the applicant is the holder of a Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)) visa or a Subclass 494 (Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional)) visa; or

(b)  the last substantive visa held by the applicant was a Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)) visa or a Subclass 494 (Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional)) visa;

the applicant must have held that visa for at least 3 years at the time of application unless circumstances specified in an instrument under subclause (2) exist.

(2)  The Minister may, by legislative instrument, specify circumstances for the purposes of subclause (1).

又比如

配偶签证 820 的schedule 1 1214(c)(3)   If:

(i)  the applicant is the holder of a Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)) visa or a Subclass 494 (Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional)) visa; or

(ii)  the last substantive visa held by the applicant was a Subclass 491 (Skilled Work Regional (Provisional)) visa or a Subclass 494 (Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional)) visa;

the applicant must have held that visa for at least 3 years.

但是对于海外递交的309/100签证却没有规定不能递交

所以491/491 要想在3年中转为PR 只有选择309/100 这条配偶签证的通道。
