Offshore Visas for Australia, during the Covid coronavirus.
Assuming the question about if Australia is still issuing Offshore Visas, is being asked while Australia has basically closed its borders due to COVID-19, the answer is that it depends on which offshore visa you are applying for, and what country you are applying from.
Visitor and Temporary working visas probably won’t be issued as you can’t use them anyway, except in certain conditions.
Partner visas might be issued, as special travel permission can be granted to partners of Australians, but not if the local embassy staff in your country are unable to work.
My view is that many offshore visas will not be issued until Australia fully opens its borders again.
I have specifically mentioned ‘offshore’ visas.
Onshore visas are still being issued, and possibly faster than before.
Thank you to those who have sent me a coffee, it is very much appreciated.
Some Visa Applicants might find an Experienced Australian Migration Agent of great assistance. - ai16
