Check under processing times for all visas which was last updated 18jul2019. They no longer talk about 13-16 months but 75% in so many months and 90% in so many!!!!
You won't get any email address of the processing centre until they contact you. Or did you find out something different? If the timeframe of 75% is past, I would call Global Service Centre and ask them what can be done. In the end and after a few calls they might chase up your case in Pretoria.It is a puzzle to me why you have not heard in 16 months, it is the kind of treatment you get in a dictatorship.But it is probably more neglect, ignorance and bureaucracy in Australa and the complacancy of Australian Sponsors not to get together and have things changed in a democratic way (provided Australia's democracy is so far advanced to take influence. ). I think that Australians (and visa sponsors) are already used to being abused by government and that is a dangerous situation to any democracy. ).

Are you seriously blaming sponsors? Lol ive fought tooth and nail for my fiances visa. Do you think we have magic powers because we live in australia?
Unfortunately most countries are becoming anti immigrations and thats due to voting not your sponsors. Do you think your sponsors want to wait this long for their other half?

As a sponsor, I just made sure the application was as complete as I could possibly get it, and that I did everything that was required, and as front loaded as possible.

Most applications get done in a reasonable time, considering the numbers..

Maybe it is time to try to cut down on the excess numbers of applications that are not up to standard, rather than blame sponsors.

Australia is cutting down on the numbers of grants to be issued, the way to beat that, is for the applicant to submit one of the best applications.

With more applicants than available grants, why would any sponsor want to help someone else, and maybe lose their own partners place in the line?

But many do anyway...

Ok J & E i know u love to believe its only about front loading an application. It is not. I provided medicals and everything at the very beggining everything they have requested are not usually requested. I have waited 20 months. It is a lot about where you are from. 😃
It sucks but due to politics and job cuts this is the result. Like they are closing services in austria slowly and i am assuming other countries.

It is not only about Front Loading, there are many aspects. I do believe that a perfect application with everything front loaded, would be granted faster than one that is not front loaded.

However, an application, even when front loaded, that is questionable for any reason would probably take longer than others.

The reduction in numbers of grants available, and high numbers of applications, is of course contributing to some increases in processing times.

I assume that security checks in some countries might also delay things.
