Because of these extended wait times, it is very important to:

  • Begin your Job Ready Program (JRP) before or soon after receiving your 485 visa.

  • Take limited time off (annual leave, sick leave, personal leave) during the program.

  • Avoid changing employers often as it can cause gaps in employment.
