    457 visa process time

    Hi everyone, I'm currently applying for a 457visa for just myself (primary) as a software engineer. The application has been lodged and every documents have been submitted by my migration agent around mid March. But on the ImmiAccount, it still shows 'Assessment in Progress'. It has been over two months. That is really really really frustrating because my job contract is about to expire in my country. I don't know if I should renew my contract or just wait for the visa approved. Does anyone know how long it would take normally? And, is there anyone in the same or similar situation here?

    Becoming defacto on 457

    So, long story cut short. I'm an electrician and my partner works in marketing/sales. Im English, she's american. The plan was always to try and get separate sponsorships or go defacto on one or the others. I've looked at going for skilled visas but due to time restraints on her working holiday visa we have decided to focus on sponsorship. Her company has offered sponsorship, so over the next couple of weeks that will be lodged. I'm going to be going defacto on the 457 so I can continue jumping from company to company chasing the right jobs. My question is- As a defacto are there any visa limitations providing that we obviously continue to be with each other? When we go for PR after 2 years am I able to obtain PR also simply being a defacto on her 457 and would that come with any limitations once it goes through? Thanks in advance

    457 Visa processing time - August 2013

    Hi, Could anybody please share me your experience with August 2013 visa processing time. my application was lodged on 1-Aug-2013. currently in application being processed further status. your reply is much appreciated. Thanks
  4. I’ve lodged onshore 457 visa as a metal fabricator and my company’s nomination has been approved. i have provided my qualification (european diploma in welding) and employment references for relevant experiences for about 2 and a half yrs (2 yrs in Belgium and 6 months in Oz). now the case officer ask me to provide further evidence to prove i have the necessary skills according to ANZSCO, but i’m from belgium there’s no skill asseessment avaivable to me (already called and told by TRA). does that mean my visa will be refused because i don’t have australian qualification or 3 yrs relevant experience (from ANZSCO) is there any other way to prove i have the necessary skills? Any advice will be appreciated! Thanks in advance! robbi9

    Issue with 457 processing

    Hi, I received the following from my case officer for 457 visa "Thank-you for the documents. I have received all the documents I require. A referral was made for further processing to an external agency. I am currently waiting on the outcome. The agency will advise me when they have made a decision and if cleared I can then finalise your application. I have no control over how long the referral will take, but I will advise you if anything more is needed. I am sorry to provide you with limited information about the referral, but I am not at liberty to discuss. Regards," Can someone please tell me what this further processing might entail? Thanks Svenka
