I'm awared that the global processing time for this visa is between 14-21 months as indicated on the Dept's website. Just wondering if anyone could provide advice/tips for a speedy and successful outcome?

We're considering of converting it to the Offshore visa category ie 309 but concerns that it would be treated as a new application and hence would wait from scratch rather than from the 7 months already served on the existing PMV application.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

You wouldn’t go back in the queue as such. What you should be concerned about is if you can meet the much stricter requirements for a 309 visa.

My most recent PMV from a high risk country took 5 months, while another one from a low risk country took almost 12 months.

It depends on both the processing centre dealing with the application plus individual factors.
What type of individual factor can make an application go longer, have been waiting for 13 months am from an high risk country.

Thanks JandE for the invaluable information provided.

Is the ''Recent PMV's highlighting high risk-v-low risk'' timeframe outlined in your response was sourced from the Dept's website? Wouldn't mind knowing its source so that I can check for future updates. Also what's the definition/classification of 'high risk' country category? ie is it based on faked cases?

Did you lodged the PMV application or via an immigration agent? Sometimes I wonder whether having an agent representative would improve the chance of a faster grant?

Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to understand the process and learn any tips as I would have to lodge for the 820 at a later stage.

Regards
NB

It could be my lack of understanding of the definition between the 'high risk' vs 'low risk' country, but would have thought the approval process for the 'high risk' ones would be longer than those from the ' low risk' category? Nevertheless that's an amazing turn around time.

Is having an immigration agent representative lodging the application would result in a faster outcome than those individually lodged?
That’s the point I was trying to make. There seems to be no reason to it.

Having an application professionally prepared will certainly help with faster overall processing, but it is not as if a migration agent can jump the queue.

Hi Hope28

That's what I did, just came back from a Vietnam trip. I know it's beyond my control but it's the uncertainty of the unknown is killing me, making it so hard to plan for anything....

Hoping it will be our turn for the good news soon

Cheers
NB

Hi AT 8/3

I hear your pain. Our PMV was lodged in Oct 2018.

Let's hope we all get that magic grant letter soon

Cheers

Character or medical issues, security checks which can take a long time if they are done by local agencies, concerns about evidence that needs checking, verification of documents and so on...

Hi Gendee28

From the forumn, some people advised theirs were granted within 2-12 months, as such you may be able to get it in time!

Best of luck!

Regards
NB
