I think processing time will accelerate starting form July as the sponsorship approval kicks in this month. There will be no visa applications starting from Apr-19 and this will reduce the number of cases assigned to processing offices.

Hopefully they do reduce the processing times and grant so many visas
Wishing everyone happy news in the upcoming weeks

I think it might be June 2019 it fully comes into effect. But it sounds good for us. So if from June there are no new Applications until sponsors are approved first it will put less strain on the Case Officers. Unless the new changes causes chaos, were Case officers need to attend meetings and new courses regarding the sponsor approval, the other question is where is the Sponsor approval going to be done? It could be on the same case officers workload. If its done in Australia totally then its good for 309 applicants currently.
But regardless there will be a slowdown for 3 months or so which will have our Case Officers working on current cases prior to changes.

Very little chance of that happening.

They are cutting down the total numbers of visas to be granted.

Migration numbers were at 190,000 per year, but that is being cut to about 160,000 per year. With about a 15 per cent cut in family visas.

That means fewer visa grants each month, and more to add to the waiting list.

Looks like all the Visa Changes are happening from 17th of April as per all the news articles online. There is a message on the Immi account page before you log in about working Visa changes, its very specific for the 17th. I would say get your applications in for 309 ASAP.

Hi,

I found this on Nigeria.embassy.gov.au
Visa applications from Nigeria

All visa applications to Australia from Nigeria are processed through the Australian High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa. For more detailed information on the visa application process, please visit Pretoria’s Visa and Migration website.

(Please Google this to confirm since I could be wrong about it. Hope it helps.)

I posted a pdf document, found on a berlin thread for 309/100. It has median for all processing places. Nairobi has an 8 month time and it's evident for some on a Kenyan active thread labeled nairobi 309/100 but sadly pretoria seems to go beyond the timelines, this from the conversations going on in the pretoria 309/100 thread(I could be wrong about this, maybe it's the guys on the end spectrum of 20 months who post on the Pretoria thread?). I hope yours get processed in Nairobi.
All the best Godswill
