Hi,

I am currently in Australia working on 457 Visa. I have initiated dependent 457 visa for my wife who is currently in India. Can I know how long is it taking to get a dependent 457 currently ?

Has anyone got their 457 dependent visa very recently?

Thanks,
Parag

Current processing times are around 4 months. Not sure if processing for dependent visa is any different from primary applicant's. Should not take more than 1-2 months if all documents are in order, and front-loaded along with the application.

Hi, I was able to get the visa through Priority processing(original application date 23rd Nov 2017). Seems like Priority processing request has to be initiated by the employer. Though it is not guaranteed to be accepted. My priority request was accepted on my third attempt.

Hi Krishna,

Would you be able to share what grounds did mention for priority processing?Also, exactly when did you receive the visa?

Thanks,
Nikita
