Still waiting for the grant.. No idea about any common delay, but it seems the processing times have increased particularly in this year. Plus if we go by this sentence in the health details prompt "processing......will not occur until a case officer investigates the case in line with published processing times for the visa that has been applied for.....", the longer processing times are somewhat expected.

guys i have a quick question here
does the grant for 457 gets affected by one's ongoing application for 189??
I lodged the 189 visa application two months back and understand there is a delay in the grant, so in the interim can I apply for 457 ??
thanks in advance

In the ninth week and still waiting..nothing except an email reply to status query which said that the 457 visa application is under "further processing" . not very sure what it meant actually with respect to time remaining before that application is finalised. Any clues are welcome

The DIBP website gives a fairly decent summary of the requirements. You need to wait until your employer lodges their nomination before you apply though.

HI All,

Need help regarding 457 nomination rejection,

my nomination for 457 visa was filed by my employer and recently got rejected due to lack of supporting documents by my employer. I have not applied for the visa from my side so far. now since the nomination is rejected I cannot apply for the 457 visa. Now, I am planning to apply for my student visa to do masters in IT. Would the 457 nomination rejection which was due to my employers fault have any impact my student visa?

I have landed into all this mess after I accepted the advice by my agent in India who insisted me to apply for this 457 visa.
