I asked my agent this question (since I effectively also have a job offer, going out to start up an Australian office). The answer is that having a job offer doesn't help to speed up the processing. It might mean more points, but having more points doesn't speed up the processing (presumably since the full number of points you're entitled to can't be confirmed until your application is processed).

The recent grants of PR visas in double-quick time must be due to something else... maybe a hideous disease is striking down electricians in Oz and they urgently need replacements.

Ben -

While you were talking with your agent, did he say how long on your 457? I would have thought that you would be almost there by now....

He's not been handling the 457 - I'm doing that myself, plus the sponsorship through work, and it was all filed in London (at Australia House) on the 1st. We had a request for some extra information on the sponsorship application earlier this week, which I'll be getting sent off tomorrow. So we know it's all being processed!

Cheers

I just checked beupdate, since I was wondering if the January CO was yet another electrician (also known as They Who Art Favoured In The Eyes of DIAC)... I also see a Co for a 175 from the 1st of January 2008 (Motor Mechanic) and another from the 10th of January (Electrician). Also another 175/Electrician who applied on the 4th of April (CO on the 16th).

So if you're a motor mechanic who specializes in the electrical bits...

Cheers

Thanks ben,

I see a job offer doesn't help because I've already got more than enough points. And also I don't think a project based assignment is a job offer. I hope to get PR Visa by the end of this year.
