Unfortunately for me, I am still waiting to be assigned a case officer after almost five months. I have also not received any application updates from TTService or the Australian Consulate in Auckland.

I think the processing centre I applied to in Auckland, New Zealand is backed up longer than most since it is the New Zealand partnership visa. Makes sense... but should have been disclosed on official government websites or application centre websites BEFORE applying. This would probably decrease the number of applications submitted to the Auckland Australian Consulate to a more manageable amount if people know the processing time frame is double.

For others considering applying from within New Zealand, I advise against it unless you have lots of time/no other option. Apparently it would have been processed faster if I had applied from within Australia.
Just a quick update. I got my 461 visa granted today. The processing time was 3 months and 20 days

Congrats on the approval, bet your there now!
When you got your visa granted, when was the start date? Date of entry or date of issue?

We have been living in Auz since November 2015
The visa grant date was the approval date...so we were approved and granted on the 28 October. Booked our flights for 2 weeks later.
So have your money ready to buy your tickets, it will be all go once you get your approval!
Hope it happens soon for you, waiting is horrible.

Good stuff!
There's no rush for us to be honest, we have applied plenty of time before we plan to go, just purely because of how long we have seen it take people to get their visa's issued.
Really looking forward to it though, was in Queensland in October and absolutely loved it.
