Bridging visa now 28 months and counting...
Processing times have gone up again:

75% of visas processed 30 months
90% of visas processed 31 months

I suspect they are not processing any applications at the moment and the processing times will keep going up... we have not heard any one getting their visa approved on this forum for a while? Any good news, anyone?

I'm 31 months ago and suspect you are correct. Have not heard anything that whole time

I recently tried renewing my Medicare and was told I was ineligible. Anyone had similar issues?

I’m from the UK so it’s a reciprocal country. Im currently on a bridging visa waiting on my 461.

I took in my bridging visa and was asked for anything more recent. How can I have anything more recent?!

Hi Guys

We applied last week - 18 March 2020 - for my husband's 461 - sent application to the UK embassy as we're in London.

Current processing time, 32 months. Yikes. And that's before you take COVID-19 into account. So, I suspect we are going to be waiting a while.

Anyone had their 461 approved recently? I'm worried they put all the applications into a pile and never look at them again!

I had difficulty renewing mine too recently.
I went in to the Medicare office to renew and I brought my most recent bridging A but got refused as it didn't have an end date.
I went back in with a copy of my last Bridging B - this was accepted as it had an end date, but my Medicare card is only valid for less than 6 months, that's until the end date of the Bridging B.

I've been here for 8 years, have not had a Medicare card for probably half that time.

It's been a long time - last year - since I heard of anyone getting their visa processed.
But it was definitely a lot quicker offshore last I saw!

Maybe I’ll just print off all my visas and take them in and see what sticks. I’d hate for my application to be refused because I didn’t have health cover.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question: I am currently on a Bridging visa to 461. I was previously on working holiday, so was taxed under Working Holiday Makers ATO rules. I understand I'll be taxed under the same rules on my bridging visa.

Would you happen to know if, when I have my 461 visa granted, I will be taxed under the 'normal rules' (provided in reside in Australia for 99% of the Tax Year)?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts,

Thank you,

Has anyone noticed the updated processing times?

75% of applications: Unavailable due to low volume of applications.
90% of applications: Unavailable due to low volume of applications.

Does this mean they’re processing more?
