  1. That is good to hear. My daughter's application was acknowledged on 9th April (no further questions asked), so that gives us a date of 9th July for a 'normal' date for a result. I think perhaps, come the end of June, she should give them a ring. The nudge may help if your experience is anything to go by. Thanks for the response.
  2. From what I read on here, professional VETASSESS takes 12 /13 weeks, whereas trades are very much quicker. As my daughter is in the professional category, she can expect the longer wait. I think she has accepted that now - roll on July!

    Not far off. Took them 10 weeks for my daughter-in-law - no complications just time waiting. She finally got hers yesterday.

    Need help about 457 visa

    My daughter in law was worried, until she checked with HR. They forgot to tell her that immigration asked a few questions last week - about the company, not her. They apologised and said they expected to hear end of next week as it was just minor stuff. ​The wait goes on.!!!!!

    ​Congrats
  10. The waiting game is a stressful one. ​As they didn't actually contact her for more info, I am assuming it is moving along nicely and that - being positive - she will get news soon.
  11. My daughter was advised that her vetassess application was complete on 9th April. She has now been advised that it has moved to 'processing'. What does that mean?

    As you have applied recently, I think your experience is relevant. It seems that there is a seasonal variation, and if she is unlucky enough to get an immigration officer that takes a holiday (I have been told) it sits on his or her desk until he/she gets back!

    457 processing times

    My daughter-in-law's company applied for a 457 for her over three weeks ago now. Is it a bad sign that she hasn't heard anything yet? What is the average time-frame for the granting of a 457 when it is is applied for onshore by a large Australian company? Does it make a difference when there are state and school holidays going on, I wonder? Maybe the case officer has been on hols with her/his kids?

    My daughter-in-law's company applied for a 457 for her over three weeks ago now. Is it a bad sign that she hasn't heard anything yet? Like ricballi, I am looking for the answer 'How long does a 457 take when applied for onshore?' Any help would be appreciated.

    Aged Parent (Residence) Visa (Subclass 804)

    Your mother-in-law sounds amazing. I do hope she gets through. Surely they would not ask her to leave at that age? Would she have somewhere, someone to go to in the worst case scenario? Is is possible for you to lodge a payment with the government to cover perceived medical expenses if they intend to turn her down?

    Aged Parent (Residence) Visa (Subclass 804)

    Thanks Bit deflated about it but hey ho!
  21. We have been granted an Aged Parent Visa (804 bridging) but my husband still holds a (substantive visa) 457. We want to switch to the Parent 804. Two questions: Can we do this whilst still on a parent bridging visa (804)? Will my husband still be able to work on a (bridging) parent visa? Thanks in anticipation
  22. I am 60, but I have the qualifications and experience to go for State sponsorship.
  23. That's just rubbish!!! They are the law on all this - and they can't stand by their advice. Very poor indeed.
  24. No, we only got one sheet (a letter) saying we have been granted bridging visas - together with a receipt for payment. Maybe that will come tomorrow.
