I am on 457 visa and leaving Australia next week. I understood from my company that they are not going to cancel my 457 visa which is until next year May.

My son is suppose to go school next year and I am thinking to send my wife next year along with my son so that he can start his school here. This is just to avoid to different education framework back in country as my plan to come back to Australia once my PR get approved may be sometime next year, finger crossed.
Is that possible for my wife to travel to Australia along with my son without me as i will continue to work in India? My son can get admission based on my 457 VISA even though I am not present in Australia and working in India.

I do have another question, VISA processing time for 190 VISA is faster than 189? My migration agent mentioned to me both are having the same processing time as per the DIBP site. I am really in a confuse stage whether I should go for 190 or not if the processing time is same in both cases. 189 VISA is better option but if 190 is faster than its worth going for.

Thanks for your help and time.

I believe as ling as you have a valid visa (and so does your wife), there should not be any issue for them to travel alone. I am not sure how your company is keeping your 457 visa without you being their employee, but if they can, it should be okay.

In the past, Subclass 189 used to have 18 months processing time as compared to 3 months for subclass 190 (ofcourse on paper, actual time used to vary). In recent years, they have set the cut-off time for both subclass as 3 months. So,previously, subclass 190 definitely was processed lot quicker than 189, but now, at least in theory, they should have similar time. But what happens in practice, hopefully people who have got their grant in recent times, can comment here.
