Avoid Australian Visa Processing Time Delays

Three ways to avoid visa processing
delay. G’day everyone its Mark the RMA again with a weekly Visa3i video. Today I’m here at St. Kilda beach Melbourne here to talk about three ways
in which you can avoid visa processing delays. These weekly videos
are here to give you hints and tips on how to DIY your own visa application this is the second video on visa
processing time the first one was identifying reasons for delay in visa
processing times thank you for your comments in that video it’s very clear
to me that visa processing time is an important issue for most visa applicants
and today I’m going to be talking about how you can avoid visa processing delays
I think the fundamental way in which you can avoid visa processing delays is by
the first tip number one decision ready applications decision ready applications
are those that have all the documentation and all the information
required as set out by the Department of Immigration check lists and it’s ready
for lodgement at the time of lodgement it means that when a case officer
receives it or an administrative officer receives the application everything is
there and it makes it easier for the case officer to make a decision this can
avoid the dreaded request for further information which can delay your
application by over 28 days but it’s always good practice to have everything
ready when you launch your application decision ready visa applications are the
best way to avoid visa processing delays mixed tip on avoiding visa processing
delays is number two always updating your information and documents as
applicable during your processing of your visa application what does this
mean for example if you’ve changed a dress or you’ve updated your passport
details or there is some change in your circumstance that needs to be reported
to the department then it’s always best to update as soon as you can get this
information this can again avoid the need for a request for further
information or clarification always update the last tip in avoiding
visa processing delays is the sooner rather than later approach what do I
mean by that basically you should consider lodging your application sooner
rather than later there are many reasons for this but the main reason is you
never know when visa laws are going to change and what sort of impact they’re
going to have on visa applications citizenship applications is the perfect
example a couple of years ago there was announcements to citizenship laws they
didn’t end up coming into play but what it did was to cause a huge backlog of
applications so as of September 2018 this is the most recent data I have
there were almost 250,000 pending Australian citizenship applications so
lodging your application earlier in that case may have avoided a long wait in a
queue as always thank you for watching this video I hope you liked it

  1. You can find published processing times for Australian visas on the Department's website. For example, visitor visa times can be found here: https://bit.ly/2uh86tD Unfortunately these times are only a guide and the Department often doesn't process within these times.
