    Recommended Posts

    Hiya - has anyone got any clues about a rough timescale for the 457 temporary visa? Been offered a job and need to get there ASAP !!icon4.gif

     

    Also - has anyone done it online - was it fairly straightforward or would you do it paper form?

     

    Thanks in advance!....:notworthy:

    The company that I work for arranged an Imm agent. They chased all the paper work etc. It only took 3months from applying to receiving the visa and that over the xmas period too. I know someone in Sydney who got there's back in 3weeks. All depends how much the company/agent push the paperwork through. Good Luck.

    Hiya

     

    I've just come over on a 457. I had an agent supplied by my employer and he did it online. It took a week to come through! I was on a plane about 4 weeks later and started work a few days after I landed. Not much time to organize my stuff to be shipped and visit everyone.

    my employer organised an agent, took a whole week from application to grant. This was only a few weeks ago, so I would guess there's no backlog at the moment.

    D'oh! Forgot to mention I've only been here 4 weeks so I agree that there can't be a backlog at the mo.
