    @Jerita Sorry mate, but when in doubt - please don't give incorrect advise. If you're on a valid 457 visa - travelling in and out of AUS is fine, with no limitations (outside of the obvious) - there is nothing about emergencies etc. - Don't mean to pick on you, just feel if you're not sure rather don't comment - might cause unnecessary confusion.

    @Mang This is a real tough question to answer, as all CO's are different. 1. They ask a range of questions (not from a script) but typically: Your role / pay / length of work. There have been a few posts in the past that have added to this list, you'd need to search for them I'm afraid as the list varies. 2. They call back when they are ready. 3. If only we knew the answer to this question. No one can answer this. Can take 1 day and go up to 2 years (it's dependent on too many factors to know). If you don't lie you'll have nothing to get caught out about and have nothing to worry about. Good luck!

    @JPJ Applications in "further assessment" can and have taken much longer in the past i'm afraid. - Although not very helpful, I've seen "further assessment" applications get a response within 10 days, and others take up to 2 years (once case in this forum).

    @kzzz This sounds really worrying... 1. There was a new legislation made a while back (no, I don't have a link to it right now) where it was decided that an application can be rejected by the department if it does not have all required documentation (this is in an attempt to lower the queue and waiting times, it also means more money for the government). I wonder if this is what's happened here? - It's unlikely they "made a mistake". 2. If this was 4 months ago, then it's likely that you're currently illegally in the country, as your visa would have expired, allowing you 21 days to leave the country. - If this is the case and you have no bridging visa, then this will be a bigger concern / issue. 3. There is a contact number for the department, been mentioned in this channel many times (131 881), however, I wouldn't hold out too much hope of helpfulness. If this turns out to be a valid refusal (which i suspect), you may have a case to sue / claim damages from your MA, however, I'm not sure how helpful that would be as you'll likely need to be on soon to be leaving flight out of the country - before immigration come knocking. Sorry to hear about the news, please keep us posted.

    @fifi186 All correspondence and feedback is averaged at (what they say) is 28 working days. You're lucky if you get anything back sooner than this and it's typically longer. - The averages used to be around 30-40 days, but that was on a s56, not sure on correspondence.

    @Vee Shah This one is still unclear (no one has ever asked their MA this) However, from my experience and others mentioned here, I don't think they know anything about this. - As long as you don't make any changes (strongly suggest you don't - rather go through your MA) and only use it to view your process / status, everything should remain anonymous.

    @Vee Shah haha, why do you need updates everyday Personally, I'd suggest you try avoid it but I can completely understand - I myself would try limit myself to looking twice a day. Create / login to your Immi account --> Import application --> Enter the required details (TRN number from your bridging visa and Passport details) --> import. NOTE: This will only import and you'll only have access to see details of your Visa application, nothing to do with the nomination application (this contains company finances and hence, updates of same are only available to your MA and company on request). Good luck!

    @Swoop Hahah, true! It's just worth remembering that no 2 cases are the same.

    @cyril_au Understood, however, this is another good reason why each case needs to be taking on it's own merit and not compared. - Easier said than done though, I know I did the exact same thing at some stages. If you keep comparing to anyone / any other application, you'll drive yourself crazy!

    @Sere Please remember that this is the average waiting times. There are some cases that go well past the 2 year mark and others that (as you've seen), take a couple months.

    @Saugat There's a timeline for a reason. Hoping it comes through soon - stay strong!

    @Maria Carolina Luckily this is an area that you can stipulate on (as you'll be the one paying for it). My suggestion, would be to tell the MA, you'd like to do the medical and get a HAPID to get it started, he can't say no to you - only suggest to wait. - Seeing as though your nomination is already approved, I don't see why they would (unless they'll make more money from you by making you wait ).

    @Worried Mummy Nope, it wouldn't speed anything up - they provide a turn around time of 28 days and this can (sometimes) be followed, however, is typically not an accurate indicator. - Some requests take 30-40 days on average, others have ballooned out to past a few months. Unfortunately, nothing you can do but hold on and try enjoy the ride. The wait gets to everyone, so don't worry - you're not alone.

    @Nagra77 Could you please provide some context to this post? Is there a question related? Thanks

    @Milan SERBIA Not in all cases, as long as there's evidence to support the situation(s). My suggestion would be (if there are losses shown), to ask your accountant to include any supporting documents to your application (you can give them to your MA). - These documents can contain an explanation as to the loss and reassurance (with proof), of how this has not affected the company / financial aspect of same. Also - when in doubt, ask your MA for advise - they would likely have much more experience on this.
