Travel to Australia While Waiting for 457 Work Visa Application to Process

edited February 2012 in - Australia

Currently in sales, I am managing the Australian territory remotely from the United States. I am waiting for my 457 Work VISA to be approved.

Is it possible to go to Australia on a travel VISA while my 457 Work Visa is going through the application process?

Thank you for your help.

    The appropriate information can be found on the Department of Immigration and Citizenship site, specifically
    Relevant section seems to be under Processing Arrangements. Here it says "If you have applied for a visa, do not make arrangements to move to Australia. Do not leave your employment, sell your home or book travel arrangements until you are advised in writing that you have been granted a visa."
    Probably not what anyone wantas to hear, sorry!
