It is also interesting to see how long it might take Immigration to request this missing information from an applicant.  Some wait 3 months (92 days) before being asked for this.  During that time, 95% of those who have made compete applications will have already received their visa grant (all granted in 94 days).

  • 25% of RFI’s were made between 63 and 75 days after application.
  • 25% of RFI’s were made between 75 and 81 days after application.
  • 25% of RFI’s were made between 81 and 92 days after application.

These figures do not include Applications that are still not granted, and some of these can exceed these timelines enormously.  The reasons can often be personal to the application, security checks etc., for some countries.  Anomalies on information received etc.  Some of these may never be granted, for various reasons.

Processing times can be affected by the numbers of applications being received each year, in each visa subclass.  More applications can often slow down the process, and the 485 subclass has had a massive increase in applications.  As shown below:
