Hi!

Actually got great news this morning, and my visa is now granted!

Yes, it was applied under the "Priority Migration Skilled Occupations List" so probably affected to the processing time positively.

Visa application lodged: 3rd of August 2020
Visa granted: 7th of September 2020

Hello! Visa application lodged today through Fragomen for the role of Marketing Specialist. I have started work since April 2020 to help my current company recover lost revenue from Covid. Very worrying that the wait time could be as long as 4 months now! :eek:

Hi Nicole, under the current circumstances I would be happy if I get my visa in 4 months.

I have lodged my application in June and have heard nothing so far

Hi Sauzer,

I was exploring going down the path of applying for exemption. My agent confirmed that having an exemption does not guarantee speedy processing of 482 but it does help the application as the case officer may take note of this.

Hi, I totally forgot to add updates 🙂. I submitted my travel exemption request Tuesday two weeks ago. Next Saturday, it was approved. On next Monday, my visa application, lodged 1st August changed its state to initial assessment. I supplied the requested documents translated three days after. Day after, this Friday, my visa was granted. It took 1 month and 22 days.
