Applied May 2018 and have received application received email and nothing else. I have called a few times just to double check but there is no one to ask in the nz family dept.
I've also just applied for work rights on my bridging visa & was told it would take 4 weeks - 6 months for this. Does anyone know if this sounds like a legit waiting time or just a staff member at immi being unhelpful/caring?

I have stressed how much the anxiety of not being able to work for increased time (processing was down to 11 months when i applied and is currently 21 months) is having a negative effect on my life. I hope someone super compassionate picks up my application. 😣😣

I believe Michelle is either mistaken or trolling us

Hi guys!

My husband and I have applied for a 461 Visa in December so we'll definitely be on the bottom of the pile.

I'm reading a lot of extremely long wait times, wow! We've done everything via an agent in Germany, she mentioned the quickest 461 she's ever had granted was within 8 weeks. If that's true, michelle_27 might not be trolling us!

Hope you guys are getting your Visa's soon!

They've upped the wait time from 18-21 months to 18-23 months. Very frustrating as i was close to the 21 month mark, where i'd be able to obtain info from immigration. But no, they just keep pushing and pushing it!

Some good news for once, I arrived in Melbourne today, sailed through customs without even showing proof of health insurance and the city is just as amazing as it looks online.

Hello guys!

I have a couple of questions for those who applied ONSHORE:
1) Did you guys get work restrictions or full work rights?
2) What was your previous visa when you applied for the 461 visa?

I’ll apply by the end of April and I currently hold a Visitor Visa Subclass 600. As my current visa has work restrictions I’m concerned that my Bridging Visa will also come with work restrictions. As the processing times have been so long I’m worried about not being able to work for a long time.

Thanks for those who reply! 🙂

My first 461 visa was granted within two weeks.
I have not heard of any other rapid processing times in the last two or three years...
Good luck everyone!
