Hi My husband is a project manager in the uk for a construction company and has been headhunted for a job in Oz - He will be sitting down with the company shortly to discuss job and package however my question is this: Does anyone know how quickly a visa for him can be organized by the company as the company will relocate us... is it quick? whats the process generally? Also I will not be going out with him at the same time as I will be selling our house in the uk and then sorting out the final details of our relocation and pets etc.... If anyone can give me an idea of time line and also how it works for me as his wife coming later that would be useful. We are looking to be in Perth but his job will be in Geraldton. Thanks

My wifes company sponsored our 457 visa and it took less than a month. That was early 2008.
