    Question Residence vs. PR

    Hi

    Am new to this friendly forum and like what I have read so far!

    We are in the process of submitting an EOI online and are not using an agent.

    My question is, is 'residency' and 'permanent residency' (PR) the same thing? Our points are 145 under the skilled migrant option and i want to know whether they are going to invite us to apply for 'residency' (which then implicates we will need a job offer & work permit later and then only apply for PR afterwards) or are they going to invite us for 'Permanent Residency' which means we do not have to have a job offer and work permit needed before PR is granted.

    thank you!

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    If you have submitted your EOI with 145 points then it is pretty likely you will be selected to receive ITA (invitation to apply) once this is submited and if your are successfull with your application you will be granted PR- you don't need a job offer to get this as you already fulfill the points on your EOI.

    Some of us need a job offer to make up the points but this obviously isn't the case for you.

    Hope that helps.

    Just seconding what Beth says above and also welcoming you to the forum . Good luck with your application. Hopefully, with 145 points, you should be fine.
