Partner Visa - Processing times seem to have changed on the website

Hi everyone,

With the launch of the online applications for the de-facto visas they seem to have also posted new processing times on the website.

The processing times for lodging onshore are 6 months for low risk and 8 months for high risk countries. I can't remember whether it has always said that on the website or whether it has recently changed as I know that the realistic waiting time is/ used to be 13 months.


Can anyone advise before I get too excited? :-)

Thanks

Unfortunately it has always said that . Said that for onshore applications when I looked in April for the offshore times.

My knowledge is that it hasn't been updated and you get the processing times in the acknowledgement letter.

I lodged online yesterday, acknowledgement letter just says check processing times on the website, the website says 6-8 months. It was different a month ago when I last checked though.

Interesting.

Well...don't believe what the website said as I believe it rarely update. Believe it or not, when I lodged my onshore application , the acknowledgement letter also mentioned "processing time requires 9-12 months" .....The truth is my application has passed 13 months already........I only received a letter from the IMMI in Sept 2013 which mentioned my application will be processed in the next few months. OMG !!!!!!

Who knows, but it's interesting that you applied and you got 9-12 months. I applied last month and my acknowledgement letter stated 13 months so maybe a step in the right direction? Fingers crossed

I heard that office in NSW states processing time is 15 months. I also heard someone got her partnership visa in 18months. Yet only granted TR (not straight to PR) .
