If one can compute the processing times for the 75th & 90th percentile of applications submitted globally in a month, then one can certainly compute the median processing times for applications per month.
It's just a different representation of the same data.

Based on that, we may not see the same table for the FY19 fiscal year.
Thanks Excellent find. Hopefully we will see performance indicators for visa processing times for 18/19 in the near future.

I wonder why the Department need to be pushed by the FOI act to obtain their performance. They are by default a monopoly funded by the tax payer without any competition. Therefore, they are obliged to release performance indicators on a regular basis to their principals (i.e. Australian public).

They are probably forgetting that the public is superior to them and they are servants of the public.

It's just a different representation of the same data.
75th and 90th percentiles are just two points of the time distribution. The median can't be reverse computed just from those two points without knowing the complete distribution. If the 25th percentile point was known, it is possible to roughly estimate the median. Still very rough since the distribution can be skewed.

The Department should release the complete time distribution (rather than just percentile points) to their principals (Australian public). Otherwise, how could the principals know of their performance (especially when there is no competition).

Since you paid visa fee means it you requested for visa they will count from that day

If anyone can share any informatiom
-Applied through Srilanka office over 25 months ago. Yea 25 months!! #Visa 309
-No further contact over 12 months.
In reply to the follow up mail" still work in progress and they do thorough check etc..."
-sponsor's 2nd sponsor well over 5 years difference.
-Marriage didnt have any ceremony, no pic with the guest and relatives.

-Applicant was granted short visit visa two times during this period.
-Again just by chasing its not working and dont want to make things complicated either.



Question : if no contact from the office over 12 months-Is it a sign of rejection?

What elses can be done as it is well above the global processing time?

I think SLBee’s question is valid and your negative response is not the response we are looking for.

I applied in April and haven’t heard anything yet but hoping to hear soon!

Stay optimistic everybody 😁

Hi, which office did u apply through

No,delay does not mean refusal. However, it appears that the case is complicated. Complications involving children could cause delays.

Has the sponsor visited the applicant's country to be with the applicant for a duration of time? if so, if any social photos are available with friends and relatives that would be very useful. And also shared accounts and any documents to show financial commitments would be useful. If photos with friends in Australia (during applicant's visits) are available that would be helpful. Statutory declarations from friends and relatives confirming the relationship and commitment that could be useful as well.

Regards SLB

I expect the date of lodgement is the date that you initially lodge the application. If the application does not have minimum required information there could be a risk of rejection. I am not 100% sure about this.

Kind regards, SLB

Sponsor didnt visit applicant since DOL.
But have attached few pic since she visited australia -mainly with kids of diffrent families and friends. Statement of parents overseas : relatives and friends in australia (around 5/6 of them) provided. Joint australian bank account , super nominee , money transfer everything provided. Had an agent( not registerrd though) who said applicant visited austrlia twice and some pic were attached which is enough to proof as a genuine relationship and he apparently not willing to attach anything.
Not sure what else we could do but 25 months waiting! We had our whole world stopped for this.Not sure about other ppl but its giving a sort of depression now a days.
