High Risk and Low Risk Countries for Migration into Australia.
Australian Immigration classifies countries as either High Risk or Low Risk for the purpose of determining risk assessment for immigration decisions.
This has an effect on the length of time a Visa application might take, for example:
At the time of writing a 120 Subclass Visa has processing times of:
Low risk ?? 5 months
High risk ?? 8 months
Low risk applies to nationals from countries which issue ETA eligible passports.
High risk countries are those which are not ETA eligible.
The Following is a List of ETA eligible Countries from immi.homeaffairs.gov.au, but please check for any updates:
Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR)
United Kingdom (UK)
United States of America (USA)
