Average time to recieve a work visa?

As a skilled migrant going for a work visa what is the average turnaround time from filing your application to recieving a visa? I see peoples posts in the work visa thread but 95% of those people didnt even get a visa yet.

What work visa are you applying for? 457? if so then it depends on the situations. One company took me 1 month for a success and another took 24 hours.

I think a lot of time lines are given to include additional info needed and request for that info and time to send it back etc.. if you have provided everything including medicals it should speed up the process.

If you look on this forum a lot of people are given like 9 months for processing when some have been approved in a week. this is Partner visa though but I know a few people from high risk countries who have been issued PR within the 1 year period.
