Thanks. In that case it may not be based on an analysis of all data related to Colombo AHC similar to the stats published by DHA in 2018.

Based on 2018 stats, median of Colombo processing times for 309 is 230 days. Median is the 50th percentile point of the time distribution. That means 50% of applications have been processed in less than 230 days and 50% of applications have taken more than 230 days for that fiscal year.

NO. Unfortunately, DHA has not published detailed processing-office based stats even after lodging a request under the freedom of information act. It is blatantly obvious that DHA is trying to hide valuable stats while misleading people with global-processing-times which are less valuable.

Australian DHA appears to be the most inefficient and least productive government institution in the entire developed world. Shame

Not yet.
The DHA produced those stats for the 2017/18 year .

They take a bit of time to release the end of year data.

In 2018-19, the Department of Home Affairs received 17,725 FOI requests and decided 15,678 FOI requests. Of the requests decided, 734 were for non-personal information and 14,944 were for personal information: 56% of requests for non-personal information and 24% of requests for personal information were not decided within the required timeframe of 30 days

That's a lot of Foi requests to keep staff from doing other more important things.

Thanks very much JandE for the information.

Since the required data (i.e. processing time for each individual application) is already in a computer database, it is a trivial task to pull that data and automate an analysis of the time distribution to extract percentile points. Once automated, no significant staff-hours would be needed to publish data for every month (let alone an annual publication). Even Excel can be used to semi-automate this analysis. If Excel is used for a completely manual analysis (which is stupid), a mathematician should be able complete this analysis in less than a day unless DHA employs most inefficient mathematicians (which is highly unlikely).

It is more likely that this is a policy decision to hide actual data from the Australian public. And also may be a futile attempt to avoid an investigation by the Productivity Commission.

It is even could be a part of the alleged "Dutton's partner visa scandal". See this report. The report alleges that Dutton has created a scandalous two-year waiting period and exorbitant costs for partner visas while disregarding the migration act!

I guess that technically it can be a short time period since that period is not specified in the visa. Could be even a day. However, there could be practical problems when you reenter if the period is too short. I also would like to know the answer to this question. If anyone has experience on this, please share.

The 2017/18 data was released in December 2018.

Maybe the 2018/19 data will be available in the same time frame, December 2019.

Or it could be a conspiracy...
