Has anyone been granted a Visitor Visa (600)?

Hey all,
Title pretty much says it all!
I submitted for a Subclass 600 Visitor Visa back in May, and the last two months they've only pushed the processing time forward a month.
Husband and I are hoping to have it by the new year (early Jan) to return to his family, but were curious to know if anyone has been granted one thus far?
Also any advice if we don't have it by mid December? I understand the pandemic is widely impacting these things, but is there anyway I can contact them to know if I will even be granted a visa?
Thanks much!

Yes they are being granted to applicants who can get a travel exemption ... this depends on your individual circumstances.

Did you list your visa number and apply for an exemption via the exemption portal at https://travel-exemptions.homeaffairs.gov.au/tep?
I applied for a Visitor (600) visa about two weeks ago and applied for an exemption the day after. My visa took 3 days to come through when I was expecting it to take 5 months.

Hi, my wife applied for visitor visa 600 from New Zealand on 19th Oct 2020, but no visa yet. New Zealand is in exempt category.

Thanks for your response!
I am an immediate relative (spouse) of an Australian citizen, and it states on the home affairs website that I do not have to file for an exemption, so I'm unsure what else can impact my circumstances.
Can you tell me if I need to do something differently?
Thanks again.

You still need to apply to travel, providing evidence of your relationship. Once this is granted, that should free up the visa:

If you hold a temporary visa or do not yet hold a valid visa for Australia, you must provide proof of your relationship (such as your marriage certificate, evidence of your de-facto relationship such as shared finances or property, your birth certificate or birth certificate for your children) to the Department before you travel to Australia. Do not travel until we advise that you can. You can find out more about how to provide this information here.
