  3. Hi Mark
    Good work replying to everyone questions.
    If a company is willing to sponsor me under an occupation on the STSOL is a 2 year sponsorship the only option? Is it possible for the company to extend for another 2 years once the first 2 years are complete.
    Is PR a possible after 3 years (counting on a second 2 year sponsorship.)

    Thank you.
