Hi All
Just checked my IMMI Account and noticed a few updates. It now actually tells you the processing time which is currently 11 to 16 months for a Partner Visa. Again I am not sure what the UK and Europe processing times are but it does say to upload all the relevant documents. I am not sure if that is something to go by. I am just waiting on my wife's Police check which should come through tomorrow.

For clarity that is the SC 309 being referred to above.

First number is 75% of applications processed by (in months), second number is 90% of applications processed by (in months).


18-25 for 820
16-22 for 801

11-16 for 309
19-32 for 100

Estimated processing time for 820 in ImmiAccount now shows 20 - 25 months :(

That's literally changed in the last hour, if they keep changing it at that rate nothing will ever get granted.
You can say that again. Ilodged in March its been 8 months ?

Like Mania said, it's 75% processed in 20 months. Meaning 75% of applications shouldn't take longer than 20 months. An app processed in 6 months is within that timeframe.

It makes a huge difference from saying apps are taking 20-25 months. Only an estimated 15% will take between 20-25 months.

I applied in April and at the time it was 75% within 16 months, 7 months later and it's increased by 4 months....probably going for a personal best here.

Few months ago I was laughing at the estimated processing time for the parent visa 103 (30 years!) but it looks like soon enough the partner visas won't be far off that :D

At least when it's granted it will go straight to permanent :D

I lodged mine in March 2016 and was granted the 820 visa at the end of October 2017 which makes it to 19 months.

Hope that helps

My account actually lists a precise date in a number of months and days. Instead of simply stating 16-20 months, it says that my application will most likely be processed in 16 months and 22 days. Which I thought was kind of random as that isn't even an even number of months from when I put in my 801 (ie it would be 17 Months and 11 days from the date I put my application in).

Is this the same for anyone else?

It varies so much that there's no way to really tell. The same country can have an applicant in the waiting game for a year and a half and also have someone apply after that person and get the visa within a few months. It really feels like luck of the draw. A US applicant applied for the 300 visa two days before I did and we both got the grant around the same time. But when we both applied for the 820 around the same time, mine was granted within a month and last I heard from her she had been waiting 4 months and still no 820 grant. Didn't speak to her again after that so no idea how long she ended up waiting but it's a perfect example of two people from the same country applying for the same visas at the same time and having two completely different wait times.

It sounds like the recent changes to the process are intended to speed things up, so hopefully that's the case.
