To ensure equity, applications for each type of family visa are assessed in order of lodgement for that type of visa.

Do I understand correctly that if the cap is reached, pending applications that have been found "appropriate"/complying get tranferred to next visa year's queue? I haven't slept much so I might have misunderstood

There's also this connected document, where it says:

Quote:
This limit, or cap, applies only for the migration program year in which it is introduced. When a cap is reached, applicants then wait in a queue for visa grant consideration in a following year, subject to places becoming available. Applications are considered for grant in order of their queue date as places become available.
However, it also says further down that:

Quote:
Partner category visas:
  • Partner (subclasses 309/100 and 820/801) visas cannot be capped.
  • Prospective Marriage (fiancÚ) (subclass 300) visas may be subject to capping.
So in theory you should be safe from this, Nelly

(Although, as we all know, there are many things 'in theory' that don't work out 'in practice' with the DIAC!)

That's what they say, but who knows whether they actually follow through! But I haven't seen any anecdotal evidence here that would indicate that it isn't the case
