@Manish9001
Unfortunately no one knows the answer to this - the guide we've been given is the home affairs processing times - link:
https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/access-accountability/service-standards/global-visa-citizenship-processing-times

It could be anywhere from 6 months(unlikely) to 15+ months.

Remember that for the DE stream you will also need to do the skill assessment, unlike the TRT case. If you sure you can do it quickly, then why not to apply now? They keep changing the law frequently, so I think the sooner you apply the better it is. Besides, you cannot be 100% sure that your employer won't change his mind in 6 months time either.

2 year WHV (9 months with current employer) 

4 years 457 (same employer) 

Application submitted 27/11/17

further documents requested 16/7/18

visa refused 14/8/18 

training requirments not met.

appeal already in process. Agent believes we have a very good case for appeal due to extenuating circumstances. 

If you’re training isn’t 100% correct, don’t submit it. They are really taking a hard line on training this year. Our accounts showed all the training. Receipts were also issued. Training we were told counted, went against us which was a considerable amount for 2 years. 

If you are doing this by yourself I highly recommend seeing an agent in regards to the training. 

Sh!t day yesterday but nothing else I can do. It’s up to an appeal now. 

Good of luck everyone else!

Hi Inicolson,

I am sorry about the refusal.

What was the problem if everything was 100% correct?

Thanks, Skill Assessment and PTE is positive. My employer's immigration agent quoted as below  "You may want to consider that, according to Immigration the average processing time for a Subclass 186 ([DE) Visa is between 13 – 18 months, whereas the average processing time for a Subclass 186 (TRT) Visa is 12 – 13 months." 

On the contrary, 2 of my friends got 186(TRT) visa in 4-5 month and one friend is stuck with 186 ([DE) from last 10 months. So again, Shall I wait another 6 months to get eligible for 186(TRT) or apply 186 ([DE) right now.

If you are really comfortable in your position and time is not a factor, I would wait and apply TRT, just feels safer. But if you want it ASAP, then DE should be just as secure if you have a positive Skills Assessment and PTE.

Everyone here can give you different opinions on the info provided, but at the end of the day, nobody knows your situation like you do. Go with what feels right, probably not what you want to hear but trust your gut.

Apparently as long as you have a bridging visa, this is possible. Am planning to apply for one soon too myself, and many here has reassured me that this is possible.
