Due to the shift in looking for work in Sydney myself to now looking like I'll be going with a UK company my Visa requirements have had to be changed. After discussing with my Visa agent (unless you have a simple entry path these guys earn their $'s!) subject to job offer I will be going with a 457 Temporary Visa and then applying for the PR once I'm settled. The 457 rroute is being taken due to the shorter (3 months) application time rather than a skilled entry Visa (157?) which can take up to 12 months.
