Question Visa 857 - terminate contract

Hi dear,

I'm new in this forum. I really hope there's someone in this forum can give me his/ her's advice.

I'm staying in regional area of Western Australia since May 2007 and got my RSMS visa 857 last July which was sponsored by my employer. For some reasons, I feel not happy when working for my company lately. I wish to stop working for my employer but I know I can't because I have to finish my 2 years contract as required by visa 857's rule otherwise my visa 857 will be canceled. And now, my boss sold his business and the new owner going to run the business as usual. In this case, is there anything affect to the contract between me and my former owner? Do I still have to work for the new owner to maintain my visa 857? Is it the right time for me to resign?

Your reply will be very important for me to make a right decision. Thank you very much for your help.

Whatever the working arrangement between you and the new owner as affected by the business sale will be covered if at all by the terms of sale for the business.
I would not rush into resigning however as that could be viewed by Immi as a more deliberate move by you to not fulfill your two years regional work.

Thank you very much Wanderer. I will wait a bit longer to see how we're going first, then making decision later.

Same story with RSMS

Hi guys

I have applied for my rsms in Sep 10 and still no case officer has been alloted. as per DIAC ens and rsms are priority processing but nothing is happening.

Any comments or suggestions for the following points.

1. any idea how long it takes to get PR via rsms.

2. so far the case officer is not been alloted. Should i call the processing office in melbourne? is it good to call? its been 4 complete months and nothing has happened

3. once the case officer is alloted how long does it take for the visa to be approved

Any help please

Has your employer and the nominated position been approved for they are the initial steps and your employer would have advice of approvals.
Other than that, a rough guide is availble from Client Service Charter though there can be many factors affecting different visas and causing significant variance.
