Ive just read these posts to see that the processing time is now upto 8 months
This is horrible for everyone! My heart sunk.
We are just about to submit our application to the London office, and was hoping my fiance can come to Aus at X-mas time on tourist visa while application in process then granted in End of Feb/ March (being 5 months processing time).....Looks like change of plans.
Please keep us posted on process. Good Luck
