A bunch of us over on the "457 processing time" forum saw a similar change within our immi accounts yesterday or the day before.... the time jumped from 5-11 months (the same as published on the Home Affairs page) to 9-11 months for everyone.I applied for the work & holiday visa 462 as a U.S citizen on febuary 8th 2018 & got asked to submit a medical on feb 12th because I am currently living in South Korea. My medical exam info was submitted on febuary 28th and since then I have heard nothing from the department. I checked my immi account today & noticed that the processing times for my visa has been hiked up to 53 days - 4 months compared to the 33 days to 71 days (global processing times on the departments website). Anyone with a similar situation with the whv 462 ? I think its quite weird that processing would take 53 days to 4 months & Its been almost 2 months since I applied.
It looks like they re-calibrated their estimates for others visas as well.
Some people on the forum get their visa within a few weeks, others have been waiting more than a year.
