... of a sub-continental IT-type who is unwilling to do his own research, and in a matter of a few posts, triggered by things like MS helpfully posting the appropriate links the questioner could have found himself, will be furiously demanding tailored advice instead.

(As I said, just a feeling, but we've seen it many times before. Honest apologises if my throw-away remark is unfounded).

Oh Well..Is it still possible to file for an application for PR without having to go through the signature of the employer, though the forms has indicated on the last page that employers should endorsed the form.

Could we just give a letter to justify the reason without having to go through the employer's endorsement..


Ooo..dont shoot me ... I know the current employer may not like it without having to go through them... lol.... it was disastrous dealing with the HR.... :P

Yes, it is possible. There are numerous reasons for not having your employer endorse the sponsorship. The biggest is the employer may well have figured out his additional payroll costs and determined that it's not in his best interest to sponsor/help you to obtain PR. Some employers will tell you that if you apply for and obtain PR, your contract will have to be renegotiated so as to allow for the increased employer costs. We've sponsored, knowing that within 3 months after they receive their PR we will, almost without fail, lose that employee as they will look for greener pastures. I can't blame them, but I can see why employers don't like to deliberately shoot themselves in the foot.
