How long will it take until you receive the PR visa (Permanent Residency)?

How long will it take until you receive the PR visa (Permannet Residency)?

The last week has been hectic for me as I’ve counselled most Australian PR(Permanent Residency) clients along with work permits. It was a week with a ‘Marketing Specialist, Mechanical Engineers and a University Lecturer. I already talked about university lecturers in my last post.

Some people find it hard to swallow how long it takes and what it takes to get a PR visa because it’s a trump card that allows you to live and work permanently in a foreign country. So they won’t just accept your application overnight! There is a process, there are many documents required, and it takes time because it’s not just a matter of packing your bags and taking the Chennai Express from Bengaluru to Chennai. Logically, theoretically, practically – it takes time! In fact, it can take between 2 and 3 years, which depends solely on your profile.

How long will it take for you to get the PR visa?

  • This is the standard question asked by everyone who applies for a visa, no matter which one!
  • Well, obtaining an ITA (Invitation to Apply), be it for Canada or Australia PR, depends entirely on it:
  • Your profile and your overall score, i.e. the credibility of your profile! Yes, you heard right.
  • Which state/region will accept your profile?
  • And finally, time is a factor — the sooner the better. There is no alternative!

So what is my role as a consultant? How can I make a difference in your PR Visa?

  • Strategically align your profile with the availability of the state to obtain an ITA
  • Create more opportunities or help you increase your points
  • Most importantly, I deal with every type of occupation in every category of the PR process! I know the behavior of states from past experience, what the odds are and how they issue or select profiles. This information is not on any official website; it comes from our real experience. Let me tell you: it’s not just a robot, it takes a lot of passion to study and observe the state V/S occupation This is my expertise! We not only have experience, but also the passion to work with your profile to ensure your success!

Your financial status, your time and your attention for PR Visa!


Also, people say we need time to think about it because it’s a life-changing decision. You have 2-3 years to think about it because you do not get the visa the next day. If you are not financially prepared to invest 1-2 lakhs, then immigration is not for you — it’s as simple as that! In most countries, visa fees are paid only at the final stage. So think about immigration if you are willing to invest the money, time and effort. If not, immigration is simply not for you! PR comes with benefits such as free education for children, loan opportunities, work permits etc., so it definitely comes at a price and you should be prepared to pay that price!

So if you are a marketing specialist, Microbiologist, University Lecturer, IT, HR, Engineers or any other profile, have extensive experience and want to immigrate to Australia, you should know that your skills are in demand and the States are currently open.. 

But, You need to be in the pool system and go through the process to have a chance of getting the visa, no matter how long it takes. There’s no other way out!!
Here again I say, and I will continue to say: the best time to immigrate was a year ago, but today is the next best time!
