Visa 457 vs Regional Sponsored Visa

Hi. Brand new here.

We are UK living in NZ. Hubby has been offered job in Adelaide. they are paying for our Visa 457 hooray! couple of questions as finding the Australian immigration very confusing.

I understand that the Visa 457 typically takes 2-3 weeks once information has gathered. Does anyone know if we can apply for regional sponsered permanent visa on arrival in Oz? Also can we use our medicals/police checks that were supplied on the 457 visa.

Looking at the Australian website it gives conflicting advice on the medical question. It says you can reuse your medicals for a 457 if you had full permanent medicals done for this application. But in another area, it tells you not to use the permanent medical forms in your 457 application as it may delay the application process. So this is were I'm confused.

I'm wondering whether to just apply for Permanent Regional Visa now, but does anyone know how long this would take?

Thanks for reading my very long drawn out explination and any help greatfully received.
