application for working visa

Hello everyone. I just want yo ask of how long does it take to be issued a working visa because i already sign a job offer in png and its already one month long and still in progress. Hope to hear or ill be given an idea. Thank you

Can take up to 3 months or more.

Thank you for your response appreciate it alot.


Before obtaining a work visa, work permit should be applied first and that processing alone will take 2-3 weeks (If there is no professional membership application).After work permit has been issued, your company/agent can apply for your work visa and it takes 2-3 weeks also.Sometimes, it will take 2-3 months or It depends on the huge applications the Labour and Immigration have, how fast the officer who handle your application and how fast and patient your agent or company in monitoring/following up your work permit and visa applications.

Thank you for your response. I do now have an idea for how long i will wait for the visa
