Applying for 457 and 175?

First of all I'd like to thank the moderators and members for their great help and support.

I’ll try to specific with my question:
I am an overseas trained dentist, sponsored by a dental recruitment company. I have already applied online for 457 visa.
Some friends advised me also to apply for 175 as it will take a long time to process, but I am afraid it might affect my application for the 457. I checked the DIMIA website yet couldn’t find relevant information on this.

Any advice? Thank you ...

No Doc., you can apply for a 175 visa while you are on a 457 visa and to speed it up a bit, keep checking every few weeks the What's New link at top of Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and if the state you're going to be located in has dentists on their State Migration Plan and you apply for state sponsorship you can apply for a 176 visa and that'll give your application higher priority.
You'll see the 175/176 application information under Visa Options > outside Australia via above page and states info under 176 eligibility.
I assume you've had your qualifications approved for Australia too btw.

The other approach you may want to consider is if you are recruited to work permanently for an employer, and the employer and you are eligible and agreeable they may be prepared to sponsor you direct and then for PR.
Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration
That could be even quicker for you as that is top priority and you may be able to avoid having to leave Australia to have a 175 or 176 visa granted which you need to do because they are offshore visas but you can apply for them while in Australia.

If with the recruitment company, you are going to be employed as a locum, it is probably a bit more difficult to consider a PR employer sponsorship.

Dear Wanderer

Thanks a lot for your reply and for the information.

I think I will have to go for the 175 visa option for the following reasons:
First, I am on a contract with the dental recruitment company (My Employer) and they get a monthly percentage from the income I will make for the sponsorship and the services they provide me. I think they will not sponsor my PR because that means the end of the contract between us.
Secondly, It will be difficult for a state to sponsor my PR ( if the Job is on the state’s list) because I don’t wish to stay in one place or state. My intentions are to gain experiences from different places through Australia, which will be easier for me if I have a PR as an Independent Skilled Migrant (175 visa).

In your opinion what are the best steps to take before applying for the 175 visa. And after I log an application, will there be anyone to follow up the process of the visa with? Like a case manager?. Because with the 457 no one from the department of immigration has contacted me or has given any news on the current status of my application.

By the way, My qualifications are recognized in Australia, I have a job offer and an overall band score of 8 in IELTS (Academic Module).

Sorry about that Doc., must have missed your earlier post back.
Understand what your situation will be and if you're here on a 457, the 175 taking a bit longer should not be an issue and with medicos including dentists, they're always in high demand and so it could possibly be pushed through a bit anyway.
What happens with all visas when applications are received, someone like an admin type assistant to Assessment Officers [ or as they are called Case Officers ] will probably look over an application to see if it looks complete and then it'll go into the queue to await it surfacing in priority.
Case Officers will have multiple applications on the go at any one time and with a series of steps of checking/requesting further info/rechecking etc. they'll do applications a step at a time and hence having multiples on the go.
But yes, you'll get a CO and they'll contact you possibly a few months after the application is in and then for any follow up.
Much the same with the 457 application.
If you've got all your info together for the 175, there's possibly an advantage in you getting it in ASAP for at the moment while the states are getting their SMPs in order and they'll have to be approved by the Immigration Minister too [ and an election on Saturday could delay all that at least a couple of more weeks ], there'll actually be no Priority #2 level and so a 175 being a Priority #3 will by default be temporarily Priority #2.
All visas of late have been taking a bit longer than normal as probably something of a build up in months prior to latest changes and with Immi re-organising themselves a bit, it means whereas a 457 may have been processed in 1-2 months it could be more around 3 months at the moment.
