Streamlined student visa process time

Hello guys

I'm going to apply for my streamlined student 573 visa in November. I read on the DIAC webpage that the processing is 14 days but I would like to know what is your experience with the streamlined student visa process time.

Could you share your process time until that you grandet the visa?

THANK YOU!!!

I have learnt from my other friend experience that under the condition of complete documentation, the streamlined visa processing time might be faster than 14 days. However, some of the friends have reported to delay the visa for one to two months if it goes to commonwealth for medical. I am too preparing for 573 visa , best of luck mate

Ok, in my case it will be a bit special. I don't need a medical examination but my wife need it because she is from a high level country. So I'm just wondering if it would cause a delay in my visa process. I'll apply on the 13th of November and my wife has already an appointment on the 15th of November. I hope to get the visa within a month....

When you will apply for your visa?

I am planning to go for medical examination in last week of Oct and lodge the visa application in second week of Jan. I have my course in session from March 3. My timeline is tight and extremely worried if my visa won't be issued on time.

We're seeing 3 to 6 weeks on streamlined visas, depending on the post it is lodged at.

Best,

Hi Mark,

I'll apply online for my streamlined visa. Do you think I have to wait more than a month?

Thank you!

Best regards,
depende

Hi Depende -

Hard to say - another factor that can slow these down is waiting for the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth to review medical checks - this happened on a recent streamlined app we processed and it extended the wait to 6 weeks. We suggest to our clients that streamlined and Assessment Level 1 student visa applications be lodged 2 months in advance, and higher assessment level apps be lodged 2-3 months in advance.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Dear Mark,

Does undertaking medical tests before lodging visa (student 573 streamlined) following My Health Declaration, fastens the visa processing time as we do not have to wait for the request of departmental officer to take medicals?
