Hi Guys,

Just to compare few things, I was wondering like is there any added advantage for the onshore applicants with a full time job when compared to the offshore applicants?

I don't think there would be any benefit during the invite process but does the case officer sees this an added benefit?

(I know experience can play a role over here like one year on shore exp is equal to 3 year offshore but I am apart from this is there any benefit)

I don't think CO gives any priority to onshore applicants, but I can think of two cases:

1) Onshore applicant get to receive a BV which allows them to stay in Australia during the processing even if the current visa expires
2) There is a chance that onshore applicants need to go through a less number of security checks (not sure about this point though).
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
