We sent my husband's 461 to the London Embassy on 18 March. So now to play the waiting game.

We started to think about applying at the start of the year but didn't pull our finger out.

Since then the processing times have increased again and again. Now says 90% of applications processed within 32 months (I'm sure it was 31 months at the start of this week <img src="http://www.australiaforum.com/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" />)

Will post an update if/when anything happens....
Hello! We applied for the 461 in London during August 2020 and haven’t yet received an acknowledgment letter. I called the general enquiries line in Aus (from my mobile... which cost me 42 for the call...) and they said that our application wasn’t yet on the system. I’m worried, as we haven’t received any acknowledgement. Is anyone else in the same boat? I’m assuming that Covid has slowed things down too... Thank you &#x1f642;

Don't know about for a UK citizen specifically, but global times have been..

Processing Times for subclass 461 Applications finalised in January 2021.

75% of applications took 32 months or less.
10% of applications took over 34 months.

Processing Times for subclass 461 Applications finalised in December 2020.

75% of applications took 34 months or less.
10% of applications took over 39 months.

Processing Times for subclass 461 Applications finalised in November 2020.

75% of applications took 32 months or less.
10% of applications took over 34 months.

Processing Times for subclass 461 Applications finalised between April 2020 to October 2020.

Not available, due to insufficient number of this visa group being finalised in those months, due to COVID restrictions.

Pre COVID..

Processing Times for subclass 461 Applications finalised in May 2020.

75% of applications took 25 months or less.
10% of applications took over 33 months.

That sounds about right, a work companion who is a NZ citizen told me that it took nearly 3 years to get his girlfriends 461 visa issued.

I'd love to know this too. But as 461's are temporary visas I can't see offshore applications being processed anytime soon - unless the application was lodged in NZ.

Borders are shut as it's permanent residents and citizens only... unless you're coming from NZ and you can use the travel bubble.
