The Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) aim to visa applications in the timeframe specified for the relevant visa category.
Actual processing times are dependent on a number of factors, such as:
- whether you have provided all necessary supporting documents when you lodge your application
- how well and how promptly you respond to any requests for additional information
- how long it takes to complete any required checks on information you have provided to support your application
- how long it takes to receive additional information required from areas outside the department particularly in relation to health character and national security
- how many places are available in the migration programme.
All visa processing times are now available on the Department’s website:
