Just curious - is your sponsor accredited and/or did you request priority?

I applied 10 May 2018 with an accredited sponsor. All possible documentation (i.e. police checks, health examinations) was included when I lodged the application. My supposed start date is at the end of the month, but I have no clue if this is actually feasible.

Hi Guys,

Applied on 3rd May. What is the way to request priority processing? If my employer can show a Statement of work/contract signed and awaiting me( my role) for it to be executed, is it sufficient? Employer is Approved sponsor but not accredited. its an intra company transfer in a large US tech company

I think you can request priority processing through this webform: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/about/contact/make-enquiry/general

It says:

Requests for Priority Allocation
If there are exceptional circumstances requiring the urgent allocation of a case please include the words Priority Allocation Request in the subject line of your email. Such requests will NOT be considered unless there is a brief statement outlining the truly exceptional reasons why this case should be allocated ahead of other cases awaiting processing. Such requests will be determined at the discretion of the relevant processing team.

Quick update - logged into my ImmiAccount and it has been updated to say that they estimate the processing will take 11-17 days. Doesn't clarify if these are business days but I assume so.


One of the police clearances I need can't go forward until I have a letter from Australian immigration requesting it, but I haven't gotten this yet. Tried filling in the webform but couldn't actually get to a form, and when I called (11:22 local time, 13:24 ACT) it said the office was closed.

that sounds great . 11 -17 days is nirvana compared to the 5-10 month queue for 457. all the best. fingers crossed

Hi eljaleo,
I am on the same boat as yours. I lodged my visa app on may 8 and I am expected by my employer by the end of the month. When I saw your post, I immediately checked my immiaccount and saw the same process time of 11 to 17days. Hopefully we get the grant immediately. I also find it weird that they gave me a date to start working when I haven't got a visa yet.
Iam just curious. Do you happen to be a nurse?

Nope, not a nurse. Are you? Do you have any documentation that you still need to submit? I need to submit a police clearance from a territory that won't do it until I have a request from DIPB, but I haven't received that paperwork yet and when I call the new hotline, I'm always told they're closed (despite being within their posted office hours). So I'm nervous that it will be much longer than 11-18 days for me but I'm not sure what to do.

when they say 11-17 days, does it include nomination+visa approval processing time or just visa approval? how can i check if the nomination stage is completed? or do they both occur together?

My friend lodged 482 visa on 26apr and visa granted today
Wow. Good to hear that they have started approving 482...

I have lodged my 482 subsequent on 4th April. Will it be considered under 457 or 482 as my spouse has 457 ?

Besides, we lodged my visa on 4th April and people who lodged 482 on April 26 are getting visa. I'm kind of confused and worried now...

Yes, I am a nurse. I have submitted everything even the police clearance. During the time that I lodged my app, there was an automatic sets of required docs, and that included police clearance.
I think its not 11 to 17 business days. I think they meant the total number of days including weekends. Because my mom applied for visa 600 and she was informed via immi account that waiting period is 17days. But she was granted 10days from the date that she submitted (including weekends).

awesome. did he apply for nomination and visa together? i wanted to know if they are processed together, if they are applied together.
I just want to share what I know.
Nomination and visa app is processed separately.
You are supposed to lodge a visa after the nomination is granted. That is the proper sequence according to oz govt. But then we can still lodge a visa app even we are still waiting for the nomination. My employer applied for the nomination and was granted on may 10th. I learned about it because my employer updated me and sent me a copy of the nomination grant. But before the grant, I lodged my visa app may 8, and am stillwaiting for the result.
