Visa applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis, and actual processing times can vary due to individual circumstances including:

  • how long it takes to perform required checks on the supporting information provided
  • how long it takes to receive information from external agencies, particularly in relation to health, character, and national security requirements
  • when the application is lodged taking the current global visa processing times into account

Processing times are impacted each month by cases that are complex, changes to volume of applications and changes to Ministerial Directions.  More information can be found on the Visa Processing Times page.
