    @iamnomad,

    I tried calling ANMAC as well to clarify about the ANZCO code and got the same answer as yours. 3months is quite a while. I dont have all the documents yet, what a bummer!

    Thanks for all the helpful tips and comments!

    Hi Alexia02,

    Different states have different processing times, and it's not always consistent. An aussie nurse told me before the workload at a particular time of the year can be a factor. If, say, you submit around the same time as local nursing graduates apply for registration, or perhaps renewal of existing RNs, then you're more likely to expect a slow down.

    I have a friend who tried applying to Tasmania before, coz it didnt seem to be so popular, but she had problems along the way coz of documentation issues. Victoria used to be so slow at some point but others got their registrations pretty quickly through them.

    I guess completing the forms and submitting all the requirements needed is ur best bet to make sure ur application goes smooth and fast.

    And of course, prayer. Just be patient. Goodluck!

    Hi. I just lodged my 457 visa application yesterday. After paying online through credit card, it appeared on the screen that I was granted a Bridging Visa. Any idea what type of Bridging Visa is this?
    Yay! Got my 457 visa approval in 4 days!
    Nomination approval received last May 31,
    Applied for 457 online last June 1,
    My application was approved yesterday, June 5.

    God is so good!

    Hi sbeattrix.

    The employer paid for the sponsorship and nomination, then I lodged and paid for my visa.

    Thanks.. 457 visa is 4 years validity. I don't think there are any other working visas longer or shorter than that.

    Congrats @annievitug!

    Did you apply for your 457 online? At which point can you apply for the visa? Is there a nomination reference code of sorts? How much was the visa btw?

    Thanks!

    I applied online. You can apply for the visa once the employer lodged their nomination already. Visa is $455.
