Hi all,

I am travelling to NSW by the end of April this year, I have checked that I am eligible for PR but just need to confirm if there is any possibility I can apply for onshore PR while on visitor vias subclass 600.

If yes can I stay in NSW while still waiting for my decision on PR or I have to go back to Laos.

Moreover approximately how long the decision will take.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks

You need to review your visa grant letter or email to see if there is a no further stay condition (8503 'No Further Stay'). If so, then you will not be able to apply for any type of temporary or permanent visa during your time in Australia on the 600 visa.
