457 application timescales

Recommended Posts

Guest steve cook

Hi,

I've just accepted a position in Perth and wondered how long the process will take. Any information on timescales from recent transfers or others who are currently going through the 457 process would be appreciated. I have been told 4-6weeks but not sure if this is accurate?

 

thanks to all you lucky people in oz - hopefully we'll be there soon:smile:

 

Steve.

Hi steve, take a look at the following for 457 times:

 

457 Processing Times Thread

 

and

457 Processing Times Spreadsheet

 

4 - 6 is generally the average with WA seeming to be a little bit quicker, particularly earlier in the year. It's a very hit and miss timeline though so don't hold your breath too much!

 

best of luck,

 

C

Hi Steve,

 

If you have everything in order, ie, medicals, xrays, paperwork etc. your visa can be issued within 48 hours. This was recently the case with a friend who is going over, so I know this as a fact. Also, being WA, there seems to be a push on recruiting in that area right now, so they are getting the visas through fairly quickly.

 

Well done! We are still waiting to hear on a job and hopefully May will deliver the answer we are waiting for. Wish us luck!

Enjoy Oz!!

We applied for our 457 on 22nd Feb and was granted around the 20th April so 8 weeks seems about right.:biggrin: Not sure about the 48hrs tho unless already there, but we didn't need medicals etc and it still took 8 weeks. Good luck.
