Subclass 300 and 309 visas submitted at Beirut.
A Freedom of Information request has produced the following statistics for Subclass 300 and 309 visas being processed in Beirut.
The number of Subclass 300 and 309 visas submitted between 1 June 2020 and 31 March 2021 in the Beirut Office was under 147.
137 were submitted in June 2020, under 5 in December 2020 and under 5 in March 2021.
Less than 5 subclass 300 and 309 visa applications were granted at the Beirut office between October 2020 and March 2021, and they were all in December 2020.
A total of 22 subclass 300 and 309 visa applications were still onhand at the Beirut office as at 31 March 2021.
From the above numbers there must have been at least about 116 of these granted, or otherwise finalised, between June 2020 and September 2020.
Say 142 lodged between 1 June 2020 and 31 March 2021
Say 4 were granted between October 2020 and March 2021.
That leaves 138 new applications waiting.
But there were only 22 still left to be processed at 31 March 2021.
That leaves at least 116 that have disappeared? Refused or Withdrawn etc?
