Default 457

Can anyone give me an approximate waiting time for a 457 visa? or are there too many variables? I dont know anyone who came by this route and have some anxious friends waiting in sunny birmingham, they dont use the site so I thought I might get an idea for them?
Thanks,
Michaela

Hi Michaela

You might get more response on the immigration forum

Sorry I can't be any more help than that

From the time the employer received approval of the nomination to the time we received the visa grant against an online application was 7 weeks.

Mainly because we discovered the meds sat in the UK doctors for 3 weeks.
So 1 month would have been the timeframe for us.

Have seen quite a few in the less than 8 weeks timeframe.......but it's pretty open ended guess territory with no guarantees.

Thanks all for replys, I'll forward the thread to them.
Poshrice, they're also heading to Sydney so may e mail you when they get the thread, be careful about putting your e mail address on here though, apparently safer to pm it, not sure why but have seen warnings many times not to!
Thanks again,
Michaela

Hi Michaela,

We applied on-line on 30th May and our visas were granted on 23rd June. Everything was straightforward for us in terms of x-rays and the medical for our daughter. Dh's employers got their end approved overnight.

HTH. Good luck to your friends.
