Student visa (subclass 500) Processing Times October 2019.

The Australian Student visa (subclass 500) has a few different streams, and each stream has different average processing times.

Processing times can be a very individual thing, with some some causes for delay being down to security checks and validating other information in the application.  Some applications are poorly completed and cause further delays.

Some are easy to process, and can be finalised quickly.
