Sorry but all you will get is their standard response that the processing time is 12 to 15 months.

It is not unusual not to hear anything at all until a decision is made.

Have they at least responded saying they received the application? Usually they do that fairly soon after the application is lodged.
But if you're just waiting to hear from a CO, could be a few months still. It says 15 months is the high end of the waiting time at the moment on their site.

thanks for reply.
I received the auto generated emails. One is for bridging visa, another one is acknowledge notice.

Hi! Im new to this site. I applied for 820/801 onshore last april30 this year and had my medicals last Sept as i was pregnant at time of application. Still havent received any response from immi. And we are going overseas end of this month and i didnt apply for bvb as i still am on a 457visa til 2017. Was wondering if i made the right decision on not getting a bvb? And how can i inform immigration about my travel details when i still havent got a co?? Will this affect my position in the queue? If so, should i not inform them that im going overseas?? Thanks!!

If you are still on a 457 visa you will not need a BVB to leave Australia as your bridging visa ins not in effect. The 457 allows you to leave and reenter Australia. Hope that helps

Normally I'd tell you just give them a call and double-check that your BVA is still intact (and lying dormant in the background) when you return, but honestly in your case there's very little chance you'll ever actually need or be on your BVA given that your 457 is good until 2017. They would have to take until your 457 expired in 2017 to process your visa in order for your BVA to kick in. I know they're slow with applications, but they're not THAT slow.

Just to let you know (in case for some strange reason you didn't) - you'll need to maintain employment with a sponsoring 457 employer the whole time they're processing your 820, and abide by all the terms of your 457 during that time.
