  • Rain 13th August 2020 at 6:54 pm on Partner Visa Application and Grant Numbers 2018-19Hi Thank you very much for the updates. They are as always very useful.

Yet the Government is deliberately slowing partner visa processing. Over 90,000 Australian families are suffering, separated for years.

  • Surbhi 29th September 2020 at 2:54 am on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi Admin, The visa that usually IT companies apply for long term work is 482. Since I already work for Australian client, I have either 309 or company visa as my options to travel to Australia. Company sponsored work visa will reduce my expenditures but I do not wish to risk 309 grant, as it gets granted only when applicant...

  • Surbhi 27th September 2020 at 3:12 am on subclass 309 Visa Processing Times in 2020Thanks for the response Admin, Sorry I did not mention in previous message but I also wanted to get your opinion on whether work visa can be applied if 309 is already in process and not yet granted. What can be possible pros and cons? After waiting for 9 months, we are very conscious of each step now.

  • Nora B 15th September 2020 at 12:30 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Hi guys, I currently have been waiting for just over 14 monts from the date of eligibility (lodged the 820 in 2017 July and was granted the 801 in May 2019). I just saw today that the global processing time for the 801 has increased from 10-17 months to 13-25. Freaking out a bit as the potential of waiting another...
  • Guest 21st July 2020 at 8:34 am on subclass 801 Visa Processing Times in 2020Some fast times for the 801. I guess that while the overseas processing is on hold, probably as much as possible to purely to reduce the numbers that can enter Australia and therefore avoid increasing quarantine numbers, there is more time to spend on the onshore processing that doesn't have the "entry to Australia" issue.
  • Nelson 9th June 2020 at 11:38 am on Partner Visa and PMV grants April and May 2020Hi Admin, Forgive me, what I meant to say was 1 309 grant globally in the month of May.

  • Nelson 9th June 2020 at 11:27 am on Partner Visa and PMV grants April and May 2020Hi Admin, Thanks for the response. Out of curiosity, is the information that you obtain regarding the granted cases from immigration or is it via the information given to you from users of this website. I do feel that it is rather concerning that if it were information plucked from immigration (probably meaning it has access to all grants and...
