Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone on here has had their 457 visa priority processed recently and if so how long it took to be granted from the time the priority processing request was accepted?

My partner has been sponsored by the business he works for and we submitted our 457 application back in the middle of May 17.

We put in for a priority request just over a week ago due to circumstances that have made our application more urgent, we had the priority processing approved, but still haven't had the visa granted. Just looking for other people's experiences/ timelines.

Hi palmtrees

All the best, hope it gets approved soon.

Could you please let me know on the steps/ process to request for priority processing?

Thanks a lot in advance.

My understanding is that it involved 1) Having an Accredited Sponsor and 2) A business need to process fast. 

The company can request to the DIBP, which takes a few weeks to get looked at, then it;s sorted in days,
