Smile Global Visa Processing Times - 11 to 16 months for Partner Visa

Hi All
Just checked my IMMI Account and noticed a few updates. It now actually tells you the processing time which is currently 11 to 16 months for a Partner Visa. Again I am not sure what the UK and Europe processing times are but it does say to upload all the relevant documents. I am not sure if that is something to go by. I am just waiting on my wife's Police check which should come through tomorrow.

For clarity that is the SC 309 being referred to above.

First number is 75% of applications processed by (in months), second number is 90% of applications processed by (in months).


18-25 for 820
16-22 for 801

11-16 for 309
19-32 for 100

That's literally changed in the last hour, if they keep changing it at that rate nothing will ever get granted.

Like Mania said, it's 75% processed in 20 months. Meaning 75% of applications shouldn't take longer than 20 months. An app processed in 6 months is within that timeframe.

It makes a huge difference from saying apps are taking 20-25 months. Only an estimated 15% will take between 20-25 months.

I applied in April and at the time it was 75% within 16 months, 7 months later and it's increased by 4 months....probably going for a personal best here.

Few months ago I was laughing at the estimated processing time for the parent visa 103 (30 years!) but it looks like soon enough the partner visas won't be far off that

At least when it's granted it will go straight to permanent

They say that the Dept will do their best making sure you won't have to pay for a spot at Rookwood, should your application takes more than 30 years to finalize.
