How long does student visa takes?


I applied for student visa recently and I wonder how long it actually takes for applications from low risk countries?
My application status is still received
Anyone applied this month (july)?

Please note I'm aware of the standard visa time and it's depends on many factors,

Can I send an email or something to bring to their attention my application is urgent because my university starting soon?

The course commencement date won't have any impact, as they will still only process applications based on the date they were submitted. Many students have to defer their course start dates if their visa isn't granted by the commencement date. DIBP generally recommends students apply 3 months ahead of their course start date, although still some applicants end up waiting 4+ months for a visa.

If you reach the standard processing time and still haven't heard anything, you could perhaps contact DIBP to see if they need anything else to finalise your application.
