I am currently in Melbourne on 457 visa for the past two years and my visa is valid till 2019.

I have started the process to apply for PR(190), i am engaged currently (going to get married on Mar), so i have included my Fiancee name in the EOI.

I got the invitation to apply for Visa on 7th Dec 2017. Unfortunately i have to file my application before 5th Feb 2018 (before 60 days window, else invitation expires). But i have to travel out of australia for my marriage in March and i intend to return back on April.

So my question is what happens to my 457 visa if i lodge an application for 190? Since i intend to travel out of australia in March, will it be a problem if i travel after i lodge my application?

Please let me know how 457 to 190 case will be handled by DIBP.

Hi Phani, it shouldn't be an issue if you travel after you lodge (assuming you won't be away for too long)?
