They changed it last month on 16 feb.. now they will change it again in few days..

The point is 14-23 months mean is to wait for 5 year visa in 2 years processing time.. completely shitt system..

My medical going to expire in first week of may.. seems like they will ask it again and i have to pay it again.. paid for 9 months health insurance insurance already for nothing.

Yes this is totally a shit. why did you paid for health insurance before u go there?, MY health insurance policy will start when I get the visa. and every 3 months I postponed the start date of that by sending them a mail.

My case officer requested me to do the health insurance for minimum 12 months. So i did it and paid $955 to iman health insurance.

frustrated

I am becoming incredibly impatient and frustrated with the wait time on the 461 visa.
How is it that permanent residency applications are processed between 8 and 9 months yet a TEMPORARY 5 year visa is taking 14-23 months?!?!?! It’s absolutely insane! I guess they’re favouring PR visas over temp ones?
I wonder if the changes to the 457 visa meant more people were opting for the 461 instead, hence the wait time I don’t know.
My partner is from NZ, I am from the UK. Currently on a 457 which expires in August this year. We applied for the visa in June, so it’s been 10 months so far.
I’ve seen posts in other forums where people have passed 14 months and still haven’t been assigned a case officer…
My bridging visa comes with travel limitations meaning I am unable to leave the country in August onwards. This proves to be a problem as I have family coming to visit and we plan to travel to NZ.
Praying for a good outcome but my patience is wearing severely thin now.
If anyone has recently had their visa approved recently, or have at least been assigned a case officer, please reply – I’m searching for success stories but unable to find any ☹

ALSO: will i need to apply for my Aus and UK police checks again? The immi website states the certificates must be from the issue date of the visa back 10 years? My certs were provided around this time last year...

laurenk I applied in June as well and still no word, not even a case manager. I'm applying for my 2nd 461 visa so thought the process would be quick, but unfortunately not. Super frustrating that the processing times keep changing, when I applied in June it was 90% processed within 9 months, which has now passed. If only there were a way to get onto them. I've emailed and gotten no response.

Just a heads up, if you do need to travel you can apply for Bridging visa B - which allows you to leave for up to 3 months at a time (with a good reason). I had to head back to Canada twice now, once for a wedding and once for a family emergency. It costs $140, but might be worth it. Good luck!
