    457 processing times

    I done mine myself, once my boss gave me my TFN, lodged 7/2/12 approved 14/3/13 no police checks or med's needed, only reason it took a little while was due to the pay needing to be increased because of the july change from 49k to 51.4k, but all sorted and approved

    tax rates on 457

    thanks for replies, I have my Tax Number from when I was on a working holiday visa, so that still applies to me as my tax number correct?

    tax rates on 457

    Hi, I'm moving over on the 457 visa, and wondering what the tax I have to pay per annum is on my wages, I come under the $0-$80,000 bracket. If anyone can help I'd be grateful thanks

    2013 - 457 visa processing times melbourne

    Heyy! I'm obsessed with the TRA portal at the moment on waiting for my visa to come through! I heard from my future boss saying they got in contact regarding my wage and she has clarified she's paying me the correct wage, however she sent this to them Sunday, and the process is still in the *further* stage, Just wondering how much longer I'll have to wait now for this to be approved! I wake up through the night checking emails, and check the portal Every morning and evening! Wish I knew! Also, I've not been requested to provide any more details and noticed that people have a separate sheet where they can view what is still needed for the visa application, does this mean they have all that is required? Good luck to those going through the 457, its so stressful waiting !

    Alice Springs

    Yeah I don't drink, so I won't be in that situation, I've read numerous articles on Alice and the alcoholism etc, and I'm pretty convinced its not THAT bad, its the same principals as anywhere else, I'm sure if I walked around my town, on my own at night I'd run into trouble, especially knowing the type of people here... I'm looking forward to the outside life, and night times I prefer friends around, going around friends places, as opposed to getting hammered and winding up in a ditch not knowing how I got there! I have a huge sense of adventure at the moment, and I really cannot wait to explore, again, Knowing limitations and to drink water is a given! Not going completely blind, would be nice to have someone to share the adventure with is all, I'll be working full time so some mates to have BBQ's, dinner parties and things as opposed to going into town and getting drunk!

    Alice Springs

    I've not been to Alice, but I'm looking forward to the lifestyle, hoping I can meet a few people just so I'm not entirely on my own, looking forward to the outback living, I'm not into clubbing etc, so I'm not going to miss that side of things, I went to the Vic/NSW border before to a place near yakkadandah and loved it, the peace of being away from everyone! Yeah its a bit of an extraordinary choice, but I really want to live in Australia, and leave England behind, and would do anything to live there, so this is something I have to do! Too excited!
