Craig, did you provide your medicals and police check with your application? From time to time, applications that are "decision ready" like that will get approved more quickly, but it's sporadic, so there's definitely no guarantee. The majority of 820 applications are taking 13+ months right now.

So that means you've ended up on a Bridging Visa E with no working rights, and that's why you're wondering about getting your decision faster? Is that correct?

No, that won't expedite your grant, but if the situation I described above is the one you find yourself in you can apply for working rights if you can demonstration financial hardship.

no because i was on a 457 and we applied for a 820 visa the 457 is valid until we get our 820 granted so it could be another 9 months until its granted we were just wondering if there is any chance that the visa got granted before the 13 months our application as been passed on to a case officer

You said you lost your job, though. Did you get another sponsor? If you lose your sponsoring employer, you have 90 days to find another one or your 457 is cancelled, and your Bridging Visa A along with it.

NOT if you lose your job. If you lose your job, you breach the terms of your 457, your employer is required by law to notify immigration, and when they do your 457 is cancelled. When your 457 is cancelled, your Bridging Visa A is cancelled and you're immediately in Australia illegally. You then have to apply for a Bridging Visa E, which as I said does not come with work rights or travel rights.

no it doesn't i have been in to immigration and had a meeting with them and the situation is if you loose or cease work with your employer and have applied for a 820/801 visa then you will stay on your 457 until your visa is granted the 90 days does not come into effect its a crazy situation but thats what happens

I agreed with CG, and I think you need to take it seriously and find out a solution.
