Recommended Posts

Good news! Visa grant on Friday! MA sent grant letter today.

my timeline: nomination applied on end of June,approved 20 of October and apply Visa on same day. Medical check did in next day

Visa grant 18 of December.

no FIR, no background check, use RPL certificate, from HR. Onshore in Adelaide.

Best gift for Xmas!

congrats. Happy for you. Was hoping I'd have news of my friend's application by now (submitted early Oct) but I guess there's a hold up which can't be a good thing :(

this is the second time for him too. After waiting basically a year it was rejected because they couldn't get hold of one of his references.

We are in same boat. They request for more document regarding the nomination and we submite within 28 days. Month later they again request document. Now my MA is trying to submite new sponser. Do anyone know is it posible to change the sponser?

Hi there,

 

I applied for a postdoc position (temporary skilled work visa, 457) on 1st August and my notification of approval of a nomination was submitted a month later. So, I’m on hold for about 140 days! Meantime, I sent 3 emails to 457@border.gov.au, but they told me my application is undergoing mandatory internal checks.

I’m somehow concerned about it. This long processing time is normal?

 

With many thanks

Are you currently employed here in Aus by the same company who is sponsoring you? Are you on a bridging visa?

Long time lurker, but created an account today as I wanted to share my good news with someone. I think I may have broken the record... I lodged my 457 application on 21/12/16, uploaded my evidence on 22/12/16 (because the immi webpage wasn't working for me on the 21st), and got my visa granted on 22/12/16!! To be fair, I am from and am living in low-risk countries, and I got a job offer that starts on 16/1/17. And I've got no dependents. I would like to think is still possible that they are still processing today applications today, so good luck and happy holidays!
