Great news! The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the Department) has announced a fast-track approach for onshore partner visa applications. The Department will give priority to applications that are “low risk” and “decision ready”. The Department usually processes onshore partner visa applications according to the date of lodgment, with a horrendous waiting period of 1.5 years. The change in approach was made to help the Department reach its annual visa processing target by 30 June 2017.

 

What does this mean for me?

 

If you are considering lodging an onshore partner visa application, you should get in quick! It is unclear whether the Department will continue this fast-track approach after 30 June 2017. Partner visas could be granted within months, which is much, much quicker than the usual 1.5 years.

 

If you have already lodged your onshore partner visa application but have not completed medicals and/or character checks, you should get these done as soon as possible so that your application is “decision ready”.

 

How can we help?

 

Proxy Migration specialises in partner visas and offers fixed fee services. We offer a fully managed visa application service, or a cost-effective “Check My Application” service, where an expert checks over your application prior to lodgement.

Hi Proxyimmigration,

 

Does this applies to the people who are here on 820(on shore) for almost a year. As explained when you lodge 820 online it says this application will be eligible for PR 2 years from the date of lodgement of 820. So does this fast track means 820 holder can apply well in advance instead of waiting for 2 years to apply 801 or 100?
