485 subsequent entrant processing time
 
Hi all,

I have applied on my partner's 485 visa as subsequent entrant from offshore through a lawyer on the 02/09/2016 and yet to receive an acknowledge letter.

My application was decision ready (lawyer advised that medical will have to be done upon DIBP request)

Please advise current processing time for 485 subsequent entrant visa. Her 485 will finish on 29th December, 2016 and we do not have much time.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Did you get any information about your application. I lodged my application on 2/9/2016. And I got acknowledge letter today. My agent said that it will take about 3 months to get the decision.
How about you?

Hi CD277,

Sorry, I missed your post.

I have also received my acknowledgement letter within a week of lodging the application.

My lawyer advised that an outcome of the application might take 3-4 months.

Do you know if there is any way to track progress of the application?

When did you lodge your application? It seem that you lodged earlier than me. I receive acknowledge letter on 9th Sep. And didn't hear anything about that until now

My partners' 485 will expire on 29/12/2016, really worried about processing time as we don't have much time.

If a sc485 application is decision ready, then it can be granted as soon as it been allocated to a case officer.

Currently around 40 days, for a subsequent entrant, to be allocated.

Have one lodged on 23/08, granted this morning.

No upfront clearances (medicals and character), will take a bit longer.

The medicals can be done before allocation.

If the time is a matter, then you may to get it done as soon as an acknowledgment letter is received.

Do not know if there is a reason there, which prevents you in doing so.

That's such relief, thank you!

My lawyer advised not to do medical until CO ask for it :(

By character, do you mean form 80?
