I applied for my NZ Citizen Family member visa in the beginning of June 2017 from Australia. When I applied the processing time for 90% of applicants was 8 months. Now, this processing time has jumped to 11 months. Does anybody know if I will be in the former bracket (8 months, when I applied) or now the latter? I tried emailing the visa centre in Sydney almost 2 weeks ago but I did not get a reply. Apart from the application acknowledgement I have not received any other correspondence. I would love to know where I am in the queue as I am unable to work while on my bridging visa and I am beyond bored (as I also found out I am not allowed to volunteer while on a bridging visa). Has anybody who applied for the 461 in May/June heard anything back?...searching for a glimmer of hope...

Hi Mate, Did you lodge the application yourself or through an agent? My wife has recently applied for 461 with AHC New Delhi. We went through an agent with a decision ready aplication. Few days after the lodgement she was asked to provide the medical report. SHe will be doing this, this week and then our wait begins. Hoping things work out fast and we get the visa asap.

 

Are you based in India or Aus?

 

Cheers!

I applied for a 461 visa in April in Australia (while on a working holiday) and have yet to hear any response. At that time, the processing time was listed at 3-5 months. Keen to hear if anyone has been granted one recently as I see it has now jumped to 14-27 months. Imagine having to wait 2 years for a 5 year visa! They really need to start removing 6 month restrictions if this is the case. Hard enough to find work without it.

Nothing yet, but we have only applied end of November.

If you don't mind me asking, is yours a straight forward case?

 

Thanks
