Maybe leave it until tomorrow and give them a call?

Hey,, I lodged my partner visa on 17 Sep 15 and I got my bridging visa A on my email the following day.
I paid through BPay though so it's not instant.

But if you paid with credit card, you should get your bridging visa straight away?
Have you got yours today?

Hey guys, on my Bridging visa A that I recently got, it said that the average processing time for a Partner (temporary) visa is currently between 9-12 months. Is this true? Because last time I read it somewhere in this forum, it said the current processing time is 12-18 months.

Thanks

a more current time frame would be 12-15 months I believe

Hi,

Waiting for 9 months and haven't heard anything yet. Have you contacted immi to follow-up yet?

Yes I did end up getting it...I think it was because I submitted late at night...I got the bridging visa the next morning around 10 am :)

Hey,

Just reading recent messages. So looks as though the average processing time is 10-15 months and looks as though most are processing in Perth or Brisbane. Just wondering when people had got emails saying where it was being processed. On immi mine says application received after 6 months. Just wondering what the earliest contact with DIBP was?

Thanks

So I submitted my 820 app a few days back and received the bridging visa, but my partner submitted his sponsorship app and for the past three days, his just says "submitted" and not "received" like mine does...is this typical?

LittleOne, yes, it is typical. Six months after submission my sponsor's still says Submitted.

Yes and yes - they just told me processing time is 15 months so it's standard wait...
Have they told you anything?

Gonna have to apply for bvb again next week...
Helene, have you received any contact from DIBP via email about your application being transferred to a different state or that it has progressed in the queue?

i didn't try to contact them yet,as my application will be only 12 months this October 19th. We didn't bother about the wait so far,but now we are planning to go overseas in November and then again planning a European holidays next May.Now the thought of applying for BVB and holding the application while away and delaying things further is annoying.Fingers crossed hoping to get it processed before November!!

May I know if there is any waiting period for lodging 820 application? If I used ETA and arrived Australia this morning, can I lodge my 820 application and received BVA this afternoon?

There is no official waiting times but if you lodge the day you arrive on your ETA DIBP could argue that you are in breach of the tourist visa conditions.

Don't forget that you can not work until the expiry of the ETA ie. 3 months, so applying sooner does not change when you can start working.
