Thank you Mish for reply. I think what you said about processing time makes sense to me. Just wanted to clarify one thing from you about processing time

Have you seen anyone applied or submitted their 801 docs few months or may be a year late and still processed within eligibility time frame?

I have seen someone submitted their docs about 12 months late and they got their PR about 1 or 2 months after submitting the docs. This is because it is based on eligibility date.

They are able to process them faster. For example, in the 2014–15 programme year, 205,383 permanent migration visas were granted.
However, they seem to be limited to only 190,000 now, and that number maybe reducing.

As the number of applications is also increasing, they need to slow down the processing time, to ensure only the required number are processed each year.
I think that they had hoped increasing the fees might reduce the numbers of applications, but maybe it didn't.

The more people that apply, the longer the processing time might take.

Hope that helps.
Yes this is very helpful thank you. So my understanding is that this is the only form filled out by the sponsor and nothing else?

Thank you but as i know when they putting the fees higher we should expect more faster with the processing that all my point was.

So if they want to approve 50,000 in the year and 80,000 apply then of course the processing times are going to go up.
I do Agree with you Mish but they should look into those people paying alot they should hire more staff to get this done faster even if there is alot of people applying and the issue is they putting the fees more higher

You assume that money goes to the COs and hiring of them. That's not how government works.

People applying for visas to Australia all too often seem a bit too entitled to me.

That money goes to the department of home affairs and that’s why the budget of the government is decided. First thing is there is no annual cap for partner visas. So there’s no point of blaming the number of people applying because that has nothing to do with blown out processing time.
Second, they have mentioned clearly for the reason of their backlogs and why the processing time has blown out and the main reason is STAFF CUT, NOT ENOUGH RESOURCES.
So what does that mean is they have cut down on staff because of their budget that they can’t afford to hire extras or more people.
Let me tell you one thing that fees for partner visas in Australia is the most expensive one and after that also they can’t afford to hire extra people. Government should have allocated more money to this department when they can clearly see they’re charging $7k from each application.
It seems that government doesn’t want to allocate more funds because they’re running out too just because thy have to keep feeding Centrelink people who can fork their money on drugs and crime and have a bottle of wine in the night for free

Ronnie, not entirely true.
the increased to get the prices to this point was done by Abbott because he couldn't get his budget to pass, and this was an easy way to bring in a lot of extra money without going through the senate. it doesn't all go back into DHA.
and of course no government would let go of a cash cow and reduce these costs.
and while there may technically be no offical caps, planning levels for partner visa's for the current financial year, same as last year is 47825, so may not be an offical cap but clearly they are planning for less applications then they are recieving and that creates a backlog.
