Exclamation Global Processing Time Frame

Dear Seniors and members,

Hope everyone is doing well.
I have come across the information that the global processing time frame has increased from 12 to 15 months

Quite a few applicants from the partner visa thread (from India) on another immigration forum have posted this question after they spoke to AHC and the operators informed them of the global processing time being increased to 15 months.
But no such change has not been reflected on the DIBP or AHC New Delhi's website. I've been trying to find any information on this increase ever since but there is no update anywhere which makes me think that the operators are just saying anything to get the applicants to get off the phone and to stop calling them.

Does the global processing time frame differ from country to country or is the same for all the high risk countries? I thought it was the same, as to what name suggests "global" processing time frame
Also I thought DIBP makes the changes to these global time frames not the individual high commissions. The individual high commission do have the indicative time frames but should have the same global processing time frame for the countries that are in high risk list and the same for those in the low risk list.

Kindly please advice. Look forward to your suggestions. Thanks a lot for your help

Kind Regards,
Becky

Becky,
Thanks for the concerned research you are making.

The global service standard for partner visas is 12 months as indicated in almost all AHCs websites.

According to my understanding, the 12 months is the average processing time of all high risk and low risk countries.
But when it comes to an individual AHC, they have their own approximate processing time like 5-9, 8-10, 8-12, 12-18 and so on so forth.


I stand to be corrected if I am wrong.
Hassan

Global is for the entire world. Where we applied we were told the global as well as the average for the embassy. It is their way of saying a minimum and maximum time.

Thanks a lot for your reply Hassan.That's exactly what I thought the global processing time frame was.
People are freaking out with this new information that the applicants shared on the thread. I'm sure DIBP would update their website if they WERE to change the processing time frame.

Yes, the global processing time frame is 12 months and the indicative time frame from AHC New Delhi is 8-11 months.
But they have been telling all the applicants that the global time frame has increased to 15 months which I think is BS.
I just wanted to double check with the seniors on this forum

Thanks for your help again

Kind Regards,
Becky

Hi Becky
If I remember correctly their processing timeframe is a goal only, not binding on them in any way!!
The blow out in the time frame is due to the cut backs in staffing levels, unfortunately with the current climate of financial restraint we will only see time frames lengthen.

I guess we'll have to wait and see if there has been any change/increase in the high commission's processing time as they are claiming.
Thanks again.

Kind Regards,
Becky
