Hello.

Has anyone here applied for this visa (600) for family to visit as tourists. If so, how long did it take for your visa to be granted?

Online it shows 6 weeks... or has it been sooner than that?

I lodged my brother and nephew's application yesterday (online via ImmiAccount)) but have already bought air tickets as they were on sale. Now I'm a tiny bit worried that their visas won't be out by departure date of 30 Apr.

Please advise...

Thanks.

Depends on what country they are applying from as to how long it will take.
April 30 is only around 5 weeks so you will be cutting it fine.
On the website they usually warn you not to make any travel arrangements until the visa is granted.

Thanks, Steve. Got used to the "easy" application for family members who previously applied for visas (but non-sponsored). Hopefully it is granted before 30 Apr.

Hi.
How was your visa application? I lodge my husband Tourist visa under sponsored family stream last March 17, and I haven't heard anything from the immig as of today. I did submit the application online.

Hello. I'm in Melbourne and my bro and nephew are from the Philippines.
Hi husband is from Philippines, and Im from Perth, I think the processing time depends on sponsor location, I submit an online application 17 of March and still no news yet. This is the 5th week now. I call immig and told me it was process in Brisbane office.

Kamusta? :)

Is it Tourist Visa - Family Sponsored or a different type of visa? Mine was processed in Sydney.

If it's the same visa type, it could be per sponsor's location. But if it's a different visa, it could be based on visa type.

As mentioned above, mine was processed in a week.

Good luck!
