My name is Mar from Philippines.I was nominated as Fitter General last January 5,2018.Then,On January 10,2018 my visa was lodged.Until now were still waiting for the result.I have a question,Am I affected with the new visa changes?or still my visa is 457?
Thank you very much and more power to you.
Hi Mar, according to the information available here:
Subclass 457 nomination applications for visa applicants lodged before the implementation date
if a related visa application was also lodged before implementation date – both nomination and visa applications will be processed under ‘old rules’
If no related visa application was lodged before implementation date – the nomination application will be administratively finalised and the nominee fee refunded (without a written request for a refund).
Hope this helps
