There has been a significant increase in 457 lodgments and DIAC are working to progressively meet their service standards (Processing timeframes : low risk ETA countries 8 weeks – high risk countries 12 weeks).
From Thursday 3 Feb 2011 sponsors intending to employ 457 workers in flood-affected areas of Queensland will be entitled to priority processing.* This will affect processing standards in other areas.
I guess we continue waiting
I was on IMMI website (like i always do trying to will my visa progress to move) and found out that although i am headed to the Melbourne branch office, my visa might be processed in Sydney office cause that is where the main HQ for the company in Australia is. Is this true?
All the best peeps!
