I'm in Perth.
Your application will be processed in Perth then. I had ACT in my BVA grant letter and the application letter... but mine also got processed in Perth.

Hmm, well, not sure how to take that. Looks like we've got another 9 months to wait then, judging by how long they took to resolve yours...

But I hear they're pretty slow in WA... mine took >15 months. But if it's complete they might make it a priority!

So how about my mate who married a Brazilian lass 2 years ago and applied for the 820/801 early September last year and to whom I referred to in a post on the 15th of October last year:
"My mate with the Brazilian wife was told by their migrant agent that if they're asked the purpose of their trip she was to respond that it was to apply for the onshore visa. Why would they suggest that if it's a breach of the conditions of her visitor visa (not the 650 but another one for Brazilians Etc.)? I called him now to confirm that, so he's not making it up."

Well they just got approved for the 820 last week, so that's a little over 7 months!

She's from a higher risk country, and he's a prior recipient of the partner visa as he's originally from Yorkshire and had applied years ago (more than 5 I'm sure) with his previous de facto partner. He's been a citizen for a while now though.

They weren't together long enough to skip straight to the 801, but that's an awesome result.

Something has changed, that's for sure.

As soon as I get the AFP report for my partner in the post, I'll be hitting their inbox to tell them that we're "decision ready". We've been living together since May 2014, got married in Jan 2015 and just had our second child in Dec. Surely we're good candidates to go straight to 801? Let's get this done!

Hmm that was kind of a garbled post from me.

What I mean is:

1) Another example of someone getting approved for the 820 in way less than the 12 -15 months they're saying current processing times are at.

2) I hope we'll be fast-tracked to the 801. Especially considering the proposed changes to citizenship timelines.

I think there is some confusion on these waiting times.

Your example shows that they are in the 75% group. 7 months is in the 75% group of within 18 months.

eg:
Subclass 820 visa processing times
75 per cent of applications are processed within ​​18 months of application date.
A further 15 per cent of applications are processed between 18 and 20 months of application date.
About 10 per cent of applications take over 20 months.
(March 2017)

April times have changed to 75% being done in under 17 months so far.

I'm not confused at all.

That stat doesn't tell you how many are approved in 3 months, or 6 months or 12 months. It just says that 75% are processed within a 17 month time-frame, and that 90% are settled in 20 months.

A lot of people, at least from what I've gathered from trawling this site for over a year, wait more than 10 months for that approval, while others, like our dutch friend above, have had to wait in excess of 15 months.

Seeing a few people pop up of late getting their response generated in 6 or 7 months, when they expected to wait at least 3 months more, seems quite the departure from recent trends.

But then again, I only see what people post here. I'm not privy to any hard data on this.

Either way, I choose to find this encouraging.

Jesus, I'm not reading correctly.

Yes, the quoted time-frame I wrote was wrong. For some reason I chose to identify that as you disagreeing with my overall premise.

Sorry, JandE. Of course you're correct.

75% of apps processed within 18 months does not mean the wait time is 18 months. It does not surprise me that some people get their grants faster than that, as it happens all the time.

Since it seems so confusing to people, they should make it more simple and say 75% of applications are processed within 1-18 months.
