In general, the issuance of visa takes from 6 to 20 weeks if everything is cleared. In real, if the case is fair and without having any issue, the case officer doesn't take much longer and within 6 weeks, the visa is granted.
P.S, Talent visa is a very strong visa which doesn't take much time and granted within 4 - 6 weeks.

Ooh thanks mate,it means I still have a long wait ahead of me..hope after waiting this long the response would be a positive one..And that my new employers won't start to get impatient. .
