I think that the waiting period depends more on the office where you are submitting your application more than being a high/low risk country.

I am from Mexico (high risk country) and submitted my paperwork to Washington USA. It took 6 weeks to approve my application - Which is extraordinarily fast because they had told us it would take 4 to 10 months. That's why I think it may have to do more with how much workload the office has.

But those are just my assumptions. Hopefully all of you get some good news soon!

I think someone once told me that if you can get an ETA, your country is considered low risk.

I am not sure how up to date this article is, but it lists all of the low risk countries... It is worth a look, but obviously, do more research just in case something has changed.

High risk or low risk country? Which are you? - Getting Down Under
