Contract job will affect PR or no?

Post by eren_jaeger » Sat, 27 Jul 2019 8:38 am

Hi,
Would like to ask whether working for a contract job which could be renewed bi-annually affect any chance of PR application and approval?

After obtaining PR, no. Before, possibly, but cannot confirm.

Right, so even if you are still under the contract, the government might deem that your contract might not be renewed, hence will not grant you PR? What if your contract is renewed? How would they actually take into account to consider the case?

If an employer cannot give you a 24 month EP or contract, that means they look at you as only a temporary employee. That is why you generally cannot get a PR until you have been here long enough to have had 3 tax assessments or at least two years of consecutive employment, that is also the normal length of a contract here, 24 or 36 months. It is also why we advise not applying for PR until you have had your 24 month contract renewed at least once.

Sadly the contract is only 6 months. That means I have to wait for the contract to be renewed at least 4 times?

In all probability if you are to have even a ghost of a chance.
