I am pleased to advise that the nomination has been approved.
Ended up being a pretty good national day after all. Had an email in my inbox this morning letting me know my VISA was approved yesterday. I’m now legal to enter and work in Australia!!
It’s the Temporary Business (Long Stay), Subclass 457 visa I’ve been approved. It’s the the most commonly used program for employers to sponsor overseas workers to work in Australia on a temporary basis. It was super easy since most of it was done by the company, I didn’t have to have a medical exam or anything like that and it was quick (took less than two months).Australia, granted, VISA
