    1. Those figures are not released yet, as far as I can tell. It is often some time before more detailed information becomes available.

  3. Dear Admin,

    I’m really sorry. It looks like I made a mistake when submitting our visa processing times. We submitted 26 May 2019, not 2018. Still a long time though!

    Grace

    1. Thanks for that. I was wondering. It is still a long time, compared to some recent applications. Although you have gone direct to the 100 (the PR stage), which normally we can’t even apply for until 24 months after the 309 application date.

      I am wondering why some of the more recent applications seem to be jumping past the older applications, with some very fast times.

      1. Hi Admin,

        I guess we went straight to 100 because of how long we have been together (6 years at time of application and nearly 8 years at the time of grant). We could prove we have lived together over that 8 year period too.

        I have some suspicions why the more recent applications are jumping past the old ones. When we applied, I think the online application system had just been renovated. And when I say “just” it must have been only days into the new launch. When we submitted, it just asked for all our documents to be uploaded in a big unorganised bunch. But then a few weeks or months later, we logged back in and there was all these organised sections (upload financial info here, citizenship stuff there). I fell like in in the new system, it is a lot of more organised in terms of the document uploads and links to the forms required for the stat declaration etc.; meaning when the case officer comes in, it’s a lot easier for them to assess the different sections.

        I think a nice analysis would be the number of “requests for further information” for grant applications before and after the website upgrade. For example, we had two requests for further info. If we had submitted using the new system we wouldn’t have needed these prompts because we would have known what the mandatory info that we needed to upload was (if that makes sense?). I don’t think the mandatory documents were obvious in the old version.

        Thanks again for your help Admin, and stay strong everyone still waiting.
