Thanks Adeba. You mean different processing offices, not necessarily those nationalities.

As you can see, those processing times are vastly distributed, the average global processing time is misleading. I am not sure of the reason for DHA to use global processing times rather than processing stats per interested processing office. They are virtually misleading people!

Yes, depending on nationalities- they are usually done in the same offices,eg. Iran and Lebanon - in Beirut but maybe due to security checks Iranians on average get done quicker

The processing times on the home affairs is over exaggerated... so that we don't contact them, I think!

Let's just hope these statistics are true... in some way.

Or how long it takes for the information to be checked from each countries government sources etc where required.

The Australian embassy cannot always be blamed for situations not in their control.

Some of the delays are caused by the applicants themselves, with incomplete or difficult applications.

I saw a recent one that took ages because the sponsor hadn't done their side of the application. Immigration were waiting for them to complete the application. Others, from the same country, who had frontloaded a good application were granted much faster.

Some recent 300 grants:
Philippines 2.5 months and 18.5 months.
South Africa 9.4 months and 18.3 months.
UK 6.2 months and 9.1 months.
USA 5.5 months and 11.1 months.

No one can be sure of the reasons for the differences, although we might be able to assume that some countries governments and security departments respond faster to any information requests from Australia.

Rearrange the above figures and see a different way of looking at it:
Philippines 2.5 months
USA 11.1 Months

There are many different reasons for the processing times.

for those following lebanon news - the situation there is getting pretty bad! I was wondering for the offshore applicants, who pays the people working on our applications? The Australian government or lebanon goverment? reason i ask, is Lebanon is at an economic crisis, literally... there is almost NO money in the bank!
I know the embassy is 'open' but I'm loosing hope in anyone actually working on our applications! anyone able to shed some light?

Definitely they get paid by Aus Government. We paid ~$7k for each application. This is equal to the income of the one guy for 1 month full time.
