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.

No I don't think so my company also applied for mine 3 weeks ago on Friday and they have not heard anything yet either. My HR department says they don't give a timeline but the longest they have waited for the nomination has been 12 weeks before but vary rare.


457 > 186 ENS Nomination Submitted 28/05/15 > Approved 22/10/2015

457 > 186 ENS Application Submitted 29/05/15 > Approved 22/10/2015

Hi,

 

I was sponsored by my company in Aus, submitted all docs to the lawyers - needed a chest xray as was living in Bangladesh at the time - had to wait max 3 weeks, and main delay was me not submitting my chest Xray quickly - as the day after I did that everything as approved.

 

Not sure if this helps?

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!

my nomination was lodged on the 5th of April and today HR informed me they have had some movement on the process. They are asking the company for some standard documents so hopefully I see a TRN number coming my way in the next week or so.

Movement may mean that they asked for more information.

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.!!!!!
