Please don't think I am heartless, this is just a general question!

I saw that Australia is supposed to be taking in 10,000+ Syrian refugees because of the horrific events going on currently.

PMV visa is already saying 12-15 months for an average wait from a low risk country. People on this board are averaging 10 months. Will this delay spousal visas if it truly happens?

I might be wrong, but don't see how it would be related.

Hopefully not. Not to sound selfish, but the wait is already long enough. I just am curious since I would assume the same workers would be processing their information just like all visas coming through. Hope you are right!

Everything needs processing, so the staff may have less time to do our visas.

However...

Quote:
Prime Minister Tony Abbott says Australia will take more refugees from Syria in response to the growing international crisis but it will not increase the total number of asylum seekers it accepts
Therefore the workload should stay the same, but less refugees from other countries will be accepted, to keep the total numbers level.

But if it all happens RIGHT NOW, then the immigration staff might get busy with them right now.

It is interesting to see the numbers of refugees taken in worldwide.

According to the UNHCR Global Trends 2014 report, there were 105,200 refugees re-settled last year and the United States admitted the largest number (73,000), followed by Canada (12,300), and Australia (11,600).
Sweden (2,000), Norway (1,300) and Finland (1,100) then followed.

Of course there will be delays..
If lets say 5000 or 10000 will need to be screened, there is a lot of work involved. .

The Swedish migration office is drowning in applications. .. thereof my wiew..

There's no hurry in processing refugees...they'll most likely be placed in 'camps' like the others for a number of years before they set foot in Australian society.

Don't begrudge them of the little compassion that is reluctantly shown to them. They're coming to a place that doesn't even want them in the first place and had to be shamed into taking them...

There won't be any welcome tributes (referencing Germany) in the hearts of many much less in the streets ...

Yes the USA is massively overpopulated and we are so incredibly high in debt! Not sure how were taking that many refugees + our president trying to make 12+ million illegal immigrants here legal after breaking the law. Just a very bad situation all together. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Thank you for the statistics and informing us!

But there were only 105,200 refugees re-settled in total in 2014.

These are the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees figures for refugees re-settled, copied direct from the UN Report.

There are different numbers for temporary refugees and asylum seekers, and all countries have received higher numbers of temporary refugees compared to permanent resettlement.

By rights logic says, offshore processing at Australian Embassies, shouldn't be affected. There should be no further workload for the Manila embassy processing 309 and 300 visa applications.

Can't see why Australian embassy in any other country would be any different.

Maybe a backlog in 820's and 801's, but hey, your partners are in the country already!!!!!
