    Applied Oct 2016, all front-loaded submissions through MA.

    • Company sponsor stage took 8 months.
    • Nomination came in 2 weeks later.
    • 457 came in 10mins after nomination.

    Still waiting for 457 grant.

    My employer lodged nomination on June 15, 2017. I applied on same day and completed the documents requested by June 30. Current status is "assessment in progress". Hoping it'll come out this month.

    Were still waiting as well, applied for our police checks last week and our migration agent said that they can lodge the application without the police checks, but when we get them to send them to her and she would've forward them to immigration for there records. Fingers crossed it comes through soon x

    Is that when you started the process or when you lodged 457 application? When did your employer apply for nomination?

    That's when the 457 was lodged, nomination was approved before then. Nomination was applied end of 2016.

        As you may know I am going to get 457 soon, just some quick questions about the timeline
         
        1) first, my employer need to apply to SPONSOR me - how long does it take?
        2) then my employer apply to NOMINATE me - how long does it take?
        3) I am not living in an English speaking country, should I apply IELTS + Health check + Police check + buy medical insurance , after i receive the NOMINATION confirmation and my TRN? I don't feel secure to do all those before my employer confirm that they successfully nominate me.
         
        If that's the case, everything need to be done after step 1 & 2, and it is going to take another at least an extra 1.5 months since IELTS General test is not available all the time! And the IELTS test result is only available 13 days after the test!
         
        4) I suppose after I get all the documents i need, I then have to submit my visa 457 application using the TNR
        5) Finally wait for an average 28 days for the visa granted
         
         
        Is my assumption correct?
         
        Thank you soooo much!
