nomination approval. How long?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any idea how long 457 nomination approvals are taking at the moment? My sponsor has been accepted as a business sponsor and now just waiting for DIAC to accept nomination.

We have already submitted our e457 application and immi shows processing has commenced. We have uploaded most documents but are waiting on a couple of stat decs and a court search from our solicitor who currently has taken 4 weeks and has only just (in the last week) applied to the courts for a search to be done.

 

Any help much appreciated :smile:

We are already here on a 457, and have changed employer.... the immi have told us that the nomination is in, but it might take upto six weeks to transfer our visa..... (sorry it's not better news)..

ouch. That seems like a hell of a wait. So are you unemployed currently?

yeah.. I keep ringing immi, and my new employer keeps ringing them.. all they will say is that my visa won't be cancelled as I have a nomination in, but that don't pay the bills...

really frustrating as they can do it very quick if they want!

Thats awful. Like you say, you need to pay bills still. Cant understand why they're on such a go slow at the moment.

waiting is the worst thing in the world. I've got my sponsor calling me in the morning so I'll ask him if he's heard anything about my nomination yet.

Hi guys has any of you been told by your sponsor that immigration has your file back? We got told this last wednesday by our sponsor and we are still waiting to hear if its a yes or a no? But surely if they got our file back and they haven't asked for any more paper work it shouldn't be much longer?? Anyone else been told this and know what happens next please help! Thanx. Xx
