Does this mean they’re processing more?
Probably the opposite.

When they say "Unavailable due to low volume of applications.", I feel they really mean "Unavailable due to low volume of grants".

They have used the same wording for subclass 300 visa times, where they appear to have suspended grants during the COVID-19 period.

We submitted ours via the designated visa collection centre offshore Sept 2019. Only the offshore centre acknowledged the receipt but nothing from the Dept. While we understand it will be a long wait but a bit worried if it arrived safely. Could you be so kind to tell us which email address you sent your enquirers to?

That post was a while ago and I'm not sure whether any email addresses are used any more.

You're having better luck than us though - we still haven't had acknowledgement of receipt. We rang the general number today to see if the application had been uploaded into the system, the call centre person still couldn't find any record of it. She said that under normal circumstances (ie if it weren't for COVID) we should have had acknowledgement within a couple of weeks of it being received.... it's been over three months now.

The payment in the Immiaccount hasn't been claimed either. Now not sure whether to re-apply or wait. So bloody annoying !

At least u can login into your immiaccount to check whenever you want. Payment in the immiaccount can serve as some breadcrumbs tracing to your application progress. However, the receipt acknowledgement we got was from this end only. A lot could have happened from HK to arriving to the Dept. in Oz. Submission through paper form really sucks!

Ah - thank you very much. I wasn't sure out of the two which to go for but that makes sense!

So I guess at this stage everyone has just given up on ever getting an onshore renewal? Seems like it should be illegal to just stop processing this visa. How are they ever going to catch up.on the 3+ year backlog?
