Only about 25% are taking 22 months or more at the moment, the majority are less.And you were granted after using the enquiry form? What do you think I could say? I've uploaded pretty much everything and in the most uniform fashion possible. I've only been waiting a month or so but I can't imagine having to wait 22 or so months when others are getting it in half a year
From the grants that have been mentioned in this thread, so far in 2019,
75% took under 19 months, (slightly better than the global 21 months) BUT...
55% took 12 months or under, and 33% of the total took 9 months or under.
I am not sure exactly how they actually decide which get done in under 9 months and which wait longer, but I have seen some examples where they haven't lodged everything required, and are still waiting. (The problem may be that Immigration are still waiting for them to lodge everything correctly.)
Immigration do say: You can minimise the processing time for this application by supplying all supporting documents and responding to any requests for information promptly.
We did use the enquiry form as the IMMI account was saying they were waiting for information requested, and my enquiry was saying I hadn't had any request, and could they tell me what they were waiting for.
We didn't get the email from immigration asking us to submit the 801 updates. We were in the group that they never sent it to.
