Partner Visa Processing Times Released May 2020

These are the official times quoted by Australian Immigration, for the visas finalised in April and March 2020.

Last updated: 20 May 2020 (for month ending 30 April 2020)

Offshore Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: Unavailable due to low volume of applications.
Mar 2020: 13-17 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 17 months.

Partner Offshore Provisional Visa (subclass 309) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 13-17 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 17 months.
Mar 2020: 13-21 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 21 months.

Partner Onshore Temporary visa (subclass 820) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 21-28 = 75% took up to 21 months. 10% took over 28 months.
Mar 2020: 24-29 = 75% took up to 24 months. 10% took over 29 months.

Partner Offshore Permanent visa (subclass 100) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 23-27 = 75% took up to 23 months. 10% took over 27 months.
Mar 2020: 21-34 = 75% took up to 21 months. 10% took over 34 months.

Partner Onshore Permanent visa (subclass 801) Processing Times in 2020.
Apr 2020: 10-19 = 75% took up to 10 months. 10% took over 19 months.
Mar 2020: 13-21 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 21 months.

I wonder if any PMV's were granted in April?

I also wonder how any reduction in visa grant numbers might affect the processing times. Speeding up some of the easier ones, but not granting any of the more complex ones until after the travel bans are cleared?

Hi thunderland, did you applied pmv or 309? as I believe pmv is not eligible for travel exemption?

Thanks

A PMV holder is allowed to apply for an exemption if and when the visa is issued, and the answer will be determined based on relationship status. Not everyone will be granted.

A Partner visa holder does not need to apply for an exemption, it is automatic.

I would not be surprised if a lot of grants are held back at the moment.

I think we have been forgotten! Have been waiting for about 28 months now for our 820 onshore. Applied in Jan-2018, coming from PMV. No news, application still saying 'Received'. All emails to homeaffairs have been unanswered.

@Zouzou i believe 300 holder can apply for exempt if he is immediate family member.

@Jande they say clearly in the email that they are prioritizing temporary visas for those who are in the exempt categories,and although PMV is a temporary visa,and we provided evidence of immediate family, they still would'nt want to finalise it.
our case was just waiting for the final decision at cairo just before all this mess started but they were very slow and not cooperative.

The latest processing times, for April 2020, show insufficient grants to give any times for the PMVs in that month.

That shows, no matter what they say, that few, if any, PMV's were granted worldwide in April 2020.

Their wording: "Unavailable due to low volume of applications", appears wrong anyway. I feel sure there are plenty of applications, just no grants...

309s are in the exempt categories, but the PMV is not.

this particular member @Jande will always give you negativity and will do hard effort to show you no hope and no travel if possible. @jande assumes things without any legal backup and keep injecting the hopeless thoughts into the desperate members who at this time need hope more than anything else.

sorry for the harsh comment. but i observed @Jande comments on all the threads and it is frustrating.

Hi Thunderland,

I also applied from cairo, and they told me same thing " all partner visa applications have been transferred to Australia based team for an onshore processing".

It's weird. Ny case officer is Y E, how about you

I would suggest asking your local MP to get involved if Immigration haven't been responding to your requests.
