Unhappy 457 visa delay

My 457 long stay permit visa was filled in last week of Dec and medicals we're completed on 5 Jan. I am yet to get any decision on my visa.

Status in DIBP website is in progress from last 6 weeks.

What could be the possible reasons behind this delay?

Is there anyone else who is also in the same boat?

Is there any way to check what is delaying the visa with AU immigration team?

Any pointers in this will be very helpful.

Hi you are probably about half way bring from Indian the processing time for non ETA is 12 weeks.
6-8 weeks With the widely advertised skill shortage across Australia, increase in 457 visa applications, turnover of staff, increased security and bona-fide tests, the Australian Immigration Department has officially stated their processing time for ETA-eligible passport holders who apply for 457 visas is 6-8 weeks.Please see below definition of ‘ETA- eligible’ Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong (SAR), Iceland, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Republic of San Marino, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Passports issued by the authorities of Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States of America, Vatican City. 10-12 weeks For non-ETA eligible passport holders, the official processing time is quoted as 10-12 weeks – that is 3 months. Kind regards
