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?
When I checked about this processing time with my Agent. They says this processing time is mostly applicable for accredited sponsor and for the standard business sponsors,estimated timeframe 5-6 months still stands..:(

Hi all. Preparing to submit TSS ourselves, just waiting for employer to finish re-running Labour Market Testing, assuming there’s still a job at the end of it. They didn’t advertise the job long enough initially and I still have reservations as to how they are going about it vs the new requirements.

Great to see the processing times so short at the moment. Presumably it’ll eventually creep up to 5 months or so over time.

Think I’m gonna wait for our nomination to be approved before submitting the visa as I’m not sure what will happen if there are any issues with LMT. I’m wary of having our visa application fee tied up to a nomination that’s having issue with the changes. I read on another forum you can’t link and existing visa application with a new nomination anymore.

Applied for TSS nomination and visa application today. Agent says processing shows 11-18 days but expects it to be increased since a lot of applications are now starting to come in on the TSS/482 visa. Hoping they apply for priority processing with being regional.

Thank you! We did not apply for priority processing. When I checked the global visa process time, the standard is 11 to 17days for tss medium stream
That's great. So for standard sponsor with No priority request, they approve the visas in 11 to 17 days...

I have applied my 482 subsequent on 4th April under standard sponsor. But No word from them till now. I guess its been considered under 457 processing time..

Congrats Cee316. Pretty quick. Was your nomination and visa application lodged simultaneously?
Thanks! No, they were lodge on separate date. I was trying to wait for the nomination to be granted before i lodge my visa app just to be sure i wont be wasting money. But then, after sometime, i thought nomination was taking long time, so i lodge my visa app, 2days ahead before the nomination was granted. To give you an idea, they lodged the nomination on may 1st. I lodged my visa app may 8. Nomination was granted may 10.

In my tss app, they required an English proficiency exam taken within the last 36 months.
