457 Visa Timeline - June 2013 [Sydney]

Employer nomination approved, 457 visa + defacto partner (both British) application lodged 11th June with MA, still waiting for any kind of status change on the website, medicals not requested (yet!), maybe they can see I keep checking the status online thrice a day (at least) so are going to take their time! Got flights on hold departing 5th August which need to be booked by 16th July as supposed to be starting job in Sydney on 13th August! So much to organise and so little time to do it in the closer the departure date gets ... just want approval now! Hate being in limbo! Lol!

11/06/2013 Application received - processing commenced
11/06/2013 Application fee received


Anybody had any experience or able to provide a 457 approval time frame for the Sydney office? MA says recently has been under 4 weeks, which for us should be by the end of next week (hopefully!) ...

They're usually pretty quick. My 457 came through in 9 days but that was through an MA a few years ago in Perth.

Hi jDv,

My husband and I are in the same situation as you. Our migration agent applied for us the next day after you and still waiting. They asked us for medicals and police check which we provided in a week or so. Here is our timeline as it appears at DIAC's web:

Application 457 Business Long Stay Primary
12/06/2013 Application received - processing commenced
12/06/2013 Application fee received

Person 1
20/06/2013 Health requirements finalised
20/06/2013 Further medical results received

Person 2
20/06/2013 Health requirements finalised
20/06/2013 Further medical results received

I was thinking to call them in a week or so.. And I'm wondering if our delays could be affected by the 1st of July changes

Hope to have some news very soon! Good luck!

Ha ha seems like our applications may be close together on the list! Don't know about you but I think I've checked the status about 50 times since the 'further processing' message ... Lol ... nothing yet .. hopefully before the weekend though ... We can only hold our flights until 16 July so seriously hoping its before then as we are supposed to be flying out 5th Aug and I've had to hand in my notice at work too to give them a full month! Oops! #risky

Hahaha, well, i used to check twice or maybe three times a day because of time zone difference. But since 12th of June Ive read all the WWW over in relation with 457 visa, its processing times and other stories!

Hope to have it soon since although we havent got the flight yet but there are lots of things to do when the decision is made including to give the notice at the jobs of both of us. Keep the fingers crossed

Hi guys

This is my current status as shown above, on the 1st June I was so excited thinking very positive about catching the 'visa grant' within those days after health finalization, but to my big surprise today is the 2/7 and the status is still the same. I really wonder what could be delaying so much.

Still patient
Linda

Hi Linda,

Yep, I know its frutstrating. But did you CO asked you for some additional info? Do you know his contact details? I would call them if I were you. Ive read in some threads on this forum some people do it and it can give results.

Yesterday our migration agent contacted us hence the CO is requiring to pay our medical insurance while we are in Aus. Ive contracted one, hope to get a kind of certificate soon as a confirmation and forward it to our agent

Good luck and hope everything will work out soon for all of us!
