General Permit Change Jobs

Post by apurvadutta » Fri Aug 09, 2019 8:49 am

Hi Guys,

I know this question might be asked many time here but I am asking again hoping to get correct answers or pointers here. I have come here on General Work Permit (Stamp 1) on 10/10/2018 and a new company has offered me a job. They want to know what is the process. After speaking to couple of friends here I am more confused now. :) . Can you please help me know answers to below questions

1. Can I switch job before 1 year?
2. Can the new company file for critical skills WP for me while I am on General WP?
3. Do I need to go back to India for switching job and apply for visa again?

If someone has gone through same scenario, please share your exp so that it becomes clear for me.

Thanks
Apurva

Hi All,

Follow-up question raised by Apurva - Point no.1

If suppose we would like to switch over from General category to Critical skill within 1 year, i saw there are multiple exceptions through which the change of permit is possible, say for an example - If the current role/project completed and we would like to move to different company who is ready to sponsor Critical visa, there should be some options to get it through right??

Any suggestions or did anyone faced similar situation and did something to fix this??

Thanks.
Amit.

Hello,

I had a similar query I hope Someone will be able to help me with that.
My query is regarding the employer change when it's your first work permit.

I completed my masters here in September 2018. Started working for an employer X from September 2018 on a graduate visa. My employer X provided me the Stamp 1(critical skills work permit) this year in September, 2019.

It's has been 14 months with my current employer and 3 months on critical skills work permit.

Now, I have a very good offer from a company Y who is ready to process my visa.

But as everyone said that we have to be with the company for 12 months after the critical skills is issued.

My question is can I still switch the job? Or it is not permitted to do so?

If it's permitted then how do I proceed with this.

Any inputs will be highly appreciated.

Thank you so much for hearing out.
