Could Visa 176 timeline speeds up when working in Australia?

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I'm currently living in Australia and working in a permanent and full time job position on my assessed skill.

I'm going to apply for a PR VISA 176 on July (applications are currently suspended until the end of June). I'd like to know if a letter from my company would assure any priority processing improvement for my State Sponsorship process and later for the VISA 176 application through DIAC.

Thank you very much for all attention and support!

Some states have had as a requirement for sponsorship an employment offer and I do say have had, for what the situation will be in respect to sponsorship after July 01 may well be impacted by the introduction of State Management Plans.
You ought to have a read of announcements of 08February on What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration for detail and there are a number of sticky and other threads with relevant info/discussion.
The upside for you may be that your occupation is on a SMP and that will give a higher priority.

The downside for you is that the new SOL will be of ANZSCO classifications and so you may need new ACS assessment, more details in sticky/other threads.
There is also possibility of some change in points allocation to accompany the new SOL.

Alternately, you may want to discuss with your employer the possibility of employer sponsorship.

But for an independent/state sponsored visa application, having a letter from an employer will not expedite an application but 12 months experience in the 24 months immediately prior to application has been a mandatory requirement for application acceptance and I would be surprised if that was not continued.

Like most people, it is probably best that you look at the new regulations associated with the SOL once published, that scheduled for July 01.
