Update on visa processing times
457 – Turnaround continues to be inconsistent, however complete sponsorship applications, particularly in Sydney and Parramatta, are being turned around in approximately 4 weeks. Delays in Melbourne are getting worse and we currently have 457 applications that have been lodged for 9 months. Perth is also experiencing significant delays.
ENS and RSMS – There has been no change on the turnaround for these categories. Turnaround is currently quoted at 5 to 7 months in NSW; however we have heard this week that applications that were lodged in January and February are only now being allocated. We are experiencing quicker turnaround in some cases (especially Vic).
