My employer applied for nomination on 1st August as well. Please keep it touch and share if you recivee any Request or approval !The nomination was applied on 1st August and the visa application was submitted on 2nd August.

My occupation will be CONSULTANT.
What will be yours?
Normal processing time is 8 weeks. So yeah hopefully you should have a response soon i am guessing. It your employer requested priority processing then you should have a response soon. Good luckHi, I've been reading these threads for a few weeks now. My VISA was submitted through an agent on the 2nd August. My new employer has done taken over sponsorship from previous 457 a number of times with out issues. We were told it should take a week based on previous experiences, three weeks later there has been no response from the Dept of Immigration, so last week my employer had asked for a priority processes. My Agent has been helpful, but said that they are not even getting responses from the Dept - so we have no idea. What makes it worse is that they say some are coming back in 3-4 days, other almost identical applications are still outstanding! I am fearing that this is going to take a lot longer that we anticipated
Its totally on discretion of departments whether they want to prioritise you application or not. It wont make a difference even if you a request for it!! so yeah it totally depends on them. if they feel necessary they will expedite the application otherwise it will processed normally.I hope so, but we have no idea - I was told initially it would be very quick, but it has just got longer and longer, and my agent has no idea if their request for priority has been accepted or where we are in the process. It is extremely frustrating as I do have a job waiting for me, dependent on visa. It seems like my agent is reputable and been around for a while, but they are saying that they are simply not hearing anything back from the department.
Does anyone have an idea how quick the "priority processing" takes?
