Extremely long wait so far for 417 Working holiday visa


My boyfriend and I both applied for working holiday visas on 20th August. Mine came through immediately, but my boyfriend is still waiting for his.

He has no criminal convictions, and has not been asked for any further information such as health checks.

We have rung the European Service centre several times, they are not able to give us any update on his application. We have also emailed the working holiday visa team at their suggestion and get no reply.

The time we've waited does seem excessive, and we are now concerned about our flights that go on 17th October - when we booked we felt there would be plenty of time - and in my case all was fine!

Has anyone had a similar experience or can anyone offer any advice?
