Hello All,

I have submitted my 457 visa application through a migration agent on 23rd August and i have completed my medicals on 27th August.

I dont see any other update post that, does any one in this forum have information about the visa processing time.

I heard that there is some backlog created because of the changes in the visa process. But would like to hear from the expats who have recieved there visa.

Appreciate your help in this regard

Thanks,
Pravesh

It's hard to find info concerning 457 post-1st of July.. some people on other forums who applied in July got their visa granted between 4 and 8 weeks..

my agent submitted a decision-ready application yesterday. He also said that things started to move back again since the backlog of June, but that the wait is still fairly long.

Keep us updated if you hear anything.

457 visa

Hi,

i have applied for 457 visa, for qld on 26th August 2014 and the medicals were completed on 5th September 2014. I have a dependent wife and student child on my visa application and i am the primary applicant. I have a job already and my employer is sponsoring me, last news from my Agent is that my sponsor side has been approved and now only my side is left ,,immi account login shows " in progress " since quite some time now,

Does anyone have any idea on how much more time would it approximately take to get the visa grant ?
