3 posts in this topic

Hi

I recently got clearance for the HSMP.Please advise if period spent in permit free training can be amalgamated to the period spent in HSMP for the purpose of permanent settlement.The guidance notes say that people on work pemit can do so but is not clear over the status of doctors in permit free training.

I think a lot of doctors have already switched to the hsmp so plz advise!!!!!!!!

No. The time required for permanent residency is counted from the day you get your work permit or HSMP as far as I know. So you can not take them together for settlement purposes.

If you have been legally in the country for more than 10 years irrespective of the visa status, you can get permanent residency. but its very unusual for someone to be legally in the country for 10 yrs without having a work permit or HSMP which needs 4 yrs for PR.

so if you are keen on PR, spend 4 yrs on the HSMP and then apply for PR.
