I was more asking if a pregnancy is something DIBP would have wanted us to notify them...

457 Visa - Do we need to notify of pregnancy?

Our 457 visa is now about 3.5 months in the making, and we've just been asked to do medicals - so I think we're close now.

Re: Huge increase in processing time for 457

Re: Huge increase in processing time for 457

Thanks both.

It's certainly taken some time to get to this stage - a good 3 months+ for the employer to become an approved business (their previous approval had lapsed) and for the role...

Huge increase in processing time for 457

Hi there,

this isn't intended as a 'how long will my visa take' question, as I know nobody knows the answer to that.

Instead, I wondered if anyone had any views on what components are driving...

Re: Breaking News - 457 visa being abolished

I was looking through the list Pollyana posted - and given it still mentions the 457 visa, my 'assumption'...
