The problem with the official processing times is they are too vague.


In March 2021 they say that 75% took under 22 months.

Some actual times:
  • 309+100 Granted 28 Apr 2021 – Applied Nov 2020. Canadian. Processed in 5 months. (Defacto 2017)
  • 309 Granted 7 Apr 2021 – Applied 17 Feb 2021. Turkish. Processed in Turkey, in 1.5 months.
  • 309 Granted 4 Apr 2021 – Applied 5 Jan 2021. Swedish. Processed in Berlin, in 3 months.
It varies a lot, with 25% that took over 22 months in March.

Some people do the medicals quickly, and get a quick grant, but some might end up doing them again, if their application is not straightforward.
I'll say! Those are insanely good processing times, imo.

Yeah, I was reading some people here got theirs granted super quick lately. Hubby and I have been married for 12 years (together for 16), him and daughter have Australian Citizenship, so maybe it's not too complicated as well. Hopefully I won't have to wait too long and redo any of it... already wasted 100 bucks doing 2 police checks at different places, lol.

There have been a lot of fast grants recently, especially with the longer relationships.
From 12 subclass 309 grants that I have seen last month, four of them took under 2 months, and two more took under 6 months. (75% took under 10 months)

In 2019-20 the average processing time for a subclass 309 visa was 11 months, with 75% being under 15 months.
In 2018-19 the average processing time for a subclass 309 visa was 10.6 months, with 75% being under 13 months.

The problem with times is when you look at deeper statistics such as this:
In December 2020, the fastest 25% took an average of 7 months. The next 25% took an average of 12 months. The next 25% took an average of 19 months...

What was the RFI for?

Some processing offices take a lot longer than others, and some easy applications get finalised faster too.

RFI is for medical (applicant from China).... Checked with our migration agent and she has advised case officer is based in Australia. Not sure how long this will take. We were hoping it will be very soon as we have not seen each other for almost 2 years now due to COVID!
