Hi there,

I was on a 457 visa since May 2016. In July 2018 I stopped working for an employer - the cessation of my employment was sent to [email protected] - They claim that it was never sent to them (I was copied into that email).

Since then my wife and I lodged a 820 through a migration agent in September 2018, under the advice of being granted a bridging visa A when my 457 expires (90days). However, 90 days have gone by ( nearly at 120). And my VEVO check still comes up with 457.

As of today, I have sent the cessation of employment.

Has anyone else been in a situation like this?
How long does DHA take to respond to cessation emails?
Will they backdate my 90 day period?

Any advice/help is massively appreciated.

457 cancellations can be notoriously slow.I don't think the cancellation can be back-dated.

Just keep in mind that when your 457 visa is cancelled , your bridging visa A will be cancelled as well and you will have to apply for a bridging visa E.

Hopefully your partner visa comes through before it gets to this.
