Partner Visa Processing Times Released June 2020

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

The Immigration page actually says Last updated: 26 June 2020 (for month ending 1 May 2020). It normally says the last day of the month.

Offshore Prospective Marriage Visa (subclass 300) Processing Times in 2020.
May 2020: Processing times are not available.
Apr 2020: Processing times are not available.

Partner Offshore Provisional Visa (subclass 309) Processing Times in 2020.
May 2020: 12-18 = 75% took up to 12 months. 10% took over 18 months.
Apr 2020: 13-17 = 75% took up to 13 months. 10% took over 17 months.

Partner Onshore Temporary visa (subclass 820) Processing Times in 2020.
May 2020: 19-25 = 75% took up to 19 months. 10% took over 25 months.
Apr 2020: 21-28 = 75% took up to 21 months. 10% took over 28 months.

Partner Offshore Permanent visa (subclass 100) Processing Times in 2020.
May 2020: 12-24 = 75% took up to 12 months. 10% took over 24 months.
Apr 2020: 23-27 = 75% took up to 23 months. 10% took over 27 months.

Partner Onshore Permanent visa (subclass 801) Processing Times in 2020.
May 2020: 11-18 = 75% took up to 11 months. 10% took over 18 months.
Apr 2020: 10-19 = 75% took up to 10 months. 10% took over 19 months.

Some of the subclass 100s seemed to have been done very quickly in May. The rest were not that much different, other than the 300s where it appears that very few have been granted again. Maybe not enough to calculate average times.

This is great... seems like each successive month, they manage to trim a little more off those average times. I hope that keeps going! I'll need to decide between 820 and 309 a little later this year, so I hope this continues.

Thanks for the monthly updates!

I wonder if Citizenship by Conferral applications are also seeing slimmer time frames. My wife is nine months into her wait, and that needs to happen before I make my choice on 309/820. But I'm not sure how much that matters at the moment, if we can't get into Australia in the first place with all the restrictions in effect.

The next 6 months are going to be interesting, if this second wave of the virus worsens they may decide to do a hard shutdown of the border. No arrivals, no exceptions. At the moment though most of the uptick in cases is due to community transmission.
