I've finally been sent an Aussie contract by my employer (I'm transfering from the UK to Brisbane within the same company), so my 457 application should go in soon. Fingers crossed for a speedy answer!

Hi there,

 

I'm stuck in this infuriating waiting game too, so I thought I would upload my progress too as it seem quite useful to see everyone elses progress, or lack of, as the case may be.

 

19/01/11 Application received -processing commenced

19/01/11 Appllication fee received......

 

It was lodged at the Perth COE by a migration agent. My new company previously had nomination approval but it expired and has been re-submitted. Its been 3 weeks now and with no medicals or police check required for my job I was hoping that it will be all sorted within the next week.

 

Good Luck all.

Welcome to the club matu78, mine was the 13/1/11 for both fee received and processing commenced and still not heard anything. We have just done it on our own so at least you have some inside knowledge with having an agent.

 

If you hear anything let us know.

The agent hasn't given us anything to go on other than the standard response 'about 4 weeks, maybe longer', the only advice was not to hassle DIAC.

Congratulations Edwardsfamily! I am so jealous. How were you told that you had the visa? Just wondered if they send you an email or a letter? Yours took almost 6 weeks so if thats the same as ours we should hear around 24 February, fingers crossed for us all!

 

we had an email from our agent.

 

ours only took a bit longer cause i had to have a medical...hopefully yours is on its way any day!

I'm thinkin that's a good sign too if you are getting "processed further" so quickly. Hopefully we'll all be booking flights soon.

 

I was checking flight availability yesterday and it will be tight if mine takes 6 weeks - hurry up 457!
