456 application when 457 is under process

Hello Everyone,

My 457 visa application is underway but as we all know we cannot be sure about the timelines for the same. It can take 4 weeks or 6 weeks or 8 weeks or may be more than that as well.

Now before my 457 gets approved, I have a need to travel to Australia for a very brief period of time (around 3 weeks) in order to attend some training and meetings (will not be working). For this kind of activity the 456 visa looks to be the appropriate one.

I was wondering if it is allowed to apply for a short stay business visa like 456, when the long stay business visa 457 is already under process.

Anyone has any idea about how this process actually works? Is there any other way for this? My short travel to Australia will be for a strict 3 weeks period.

You can apply for another visa while the 457 is processed and either the 456 or the ETA business would be appropiate if you are from a country for which the ETA is applicable.
