  • gianca 28th June 2021 at 11:24 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing TimesI'll never understand the logic and inconsistency of Australian visa processing times. Immigration asks an impossible amount of detail, and then sits on it arbitrarily with no feedback at all. A shockingly poor treatment. What policy outcome is such treatment aimed at achieving? The liberal conservative government needs to answer.

  • John F. 29th March 2022 at 6:43 pm on Subclass 476 Processing Time January 2022DHA finally updated processing times, and it muddies the situation up even more. I don't think there is a considerable increase in processing after March 2020. I didn't hear or read any recent grants either. It also appears that the department has not been steered to expedite the process, which raises concerns about the future of 476 visa.
  • John F. 28th March 2022 at 11:50 pm on Subclass 476 Processing Time January 2022Govt websites don't provide info about individual grants. That's why I asked that question. Also they didn't update processing times this month yet. I think when they update, processing times for 476 will not be available. Have you heard of any 476 visas granted recently?

  • Kelly 20th July 2021 at 6:27 am on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Flights got cancelled this morning unfortunately! Surprised it was so far in advance to be honest. I spoke to an operator at Qatar airlines, they said they don't prioritise expensive tickets just tickets booked directly through the airline... not sure if I believe that! Have signed up to the repatriation flights.. fingers crossed!
