Default Can a PR holder in New Zealand eligible to work in Australia?

Hi to all,

I am asking this question for my friend. As far as I know, Australian PR can work in NZ, but not sure about the other way.

How long does it take to get the visa? I heart the EOI will be approved very soon but the actual visa processing takes a long.

My friend is from a high risk country for Aus migration, anyway.

Are you suggesting that your friend simply wants to deliberately use New Zealand as a back door into Australia because they are ineligible to apply direct to Oz ?

I am asking this question for my friend.
Have him ask himself or contact an Immigration agent.

No. Thank goodness. No more back door entry. A person needs to be an NZ citizen & that takes 5 years after a PR visa is granted.

How long does it take to get the visa?
That depends on the type of NZ visa and the quality of the individual application.

I heard the EOI will be approved very soon
Did you . EOI's are drawn from a pool once a fortnight. They go for prelim checks and if OK'd then go onto the next stage.

but the actual visa processing takes a long.
That's on a case by case basis. No way to know.

For others reading this , it doesn't relate to health. It relates to overstaying and illegal entry.
