Australian visa processing times are produced monthly by the Immigration Department, to give an idea of how long a visa application might take, assuming things do not change.  They are NOT guarantees of how long Current or Future applications will take.

These times will vary month to month based on many factors, and may be very different to the actual times that an applicant experiences, especially those applications that take many months or years.

Individual processing times can be affected by the numbers of complex cases and incomplete applications, locations of processing offices for offshore applications, together with changes in application volumes, seasonal peaks, etc.
