Hi,

I was having an immigration agent lodge my 457 application in Parramatta Office on 16/12/2009. I'm supposed to be on an urgent project for a bank. It started yesterday but my visa until now has not been granted yet.

I'm having 456 visa now but since application for 457 is still in process, i had to get out of Australia ( i have 8503 clause in my 456 visa).

anyone know that how long the e457 visa normally takes to get approved in this period of time?

FYI, i'm not holding an ETL-eligible passport.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Really depends on a lot of circumstances, not least your agents work and DIAC having less staffing over usual December- January holiday period.

What does your agent say?
My agent is E&Y. I'm not sure if it's a good agent. They did not say anything. They said that the process takes around 2-6 weeks.

It is just too long since my colleague applied 2 days b4 me, he got the visa 1 week after the application lodgement.
