Coronavirus and processing times?

Does anyone know if recent travel restrictions due to Coronavirus is causing delays to Visa processing?

Is the Immigration department overworked with all the visa issues?

Do you think processing times will be extended?

Coronavirus

Yes, off course, currently there is a travel restriction because of Coronavirus that results in delays in Visa processing. Also in Queensland, travel ban over COVID-17 has been extended up to 7th March 2020; you can take a look at https://migration.qld.gov.au/.

Alongside, Australia immigration department might be overworked with all types of visa issues. One cannot guarantee about that. About processing times, then yes, the processing time for Australia visa will be extended due to ban over Coronavirus outbreak.

With the reduction in visa applications at the moment, due to this coronavirus, it could actually allow time for them to finalise existing applications earlier.

I was wondering why so many 801's seemed to be finalised this month so far.

It could be that reason..

I hope you are right JandE!

Hopefully this extends to long standing PMV 300 applications as well

I need some good news with everything that's happened with our application from 2 July 2018

I have just received an updated NOIM as the previous one expires 24 April after 18 months.
One less thing they can delay the decision for!
