    Default Skilled Migrant - WTR

    Hi,

    I just want to know the Salary Criteria for Skilled Migrant who has got WTR instead of PR. I am not sure whether its 45000/55000 per annum.
    Also other then working for that company for 3 months do we have any other criteria to get a PR from WTR.

    Thanks,
    Guru

    If you have applied for PR but been given WTR instead, I don't think there is any salary limit unlike the other WTR which you apply for if you don't have enough points to go straight for PR. That one does require a specific salary.

    For the first type of WTR, you will have a certain time to look for a skilled job (usually 9 months) and work at it for at least 3 of those months. You will need to find a job using the skills that you were granted the WTR under and you will be required to provide evidence that you have got the job.

    Hi Mother Bear,

    Thanks for the Reply. I remember my CO telling this while i was interviewed , Once you finish 3 months in the Job under SMC, Salary is also a criteria for approving PR.

    Thanks,
    Guru

    Hi Gurumr,

    I don't remember being told anything about the salary at the time of our interview, and we did ask all details about WTR, assuming from the various posts on this forum that we would be granted WTR instead of PR.

    gurumr,I am not too sure but I remember reading somewhere that in order to be considered
    in skilled employment,you should be earning $50,000 per annum.
    Check out this link below,although this is for normal WTR, but it should be applicable to
    PR->WTR case also.

    Good news. I got my PR i.e. Australian PR. will be moving to Sydney this month end.
    I have worked here for 3 months and submitted my Docs as per there WTR condition. Still no news about my NZ PR and i m not bothered now. This seems to be very slow process.

    Congratulations Gurumr! Not sure how you will stand with regard to your NZ PR application if you are now leaving the country. I guess maybe they would be looking for you to continue working in NZ to be able to qualify. But, as you say, it doesn't matter if you are happy with your Australian PR.

    Good luck to you.
