Due to COVID-19, some visa processing times have been affected and applications may take longer to finalise. Processing times are not available for all visa subclasses. The Department is prioritising processing of visa applications for travellers who are exempt from our travel restrictions to help those who need urgent travel.

Home Affairs’ COVID website
Global visa processing times are updated monthly to provide you with an indicative time frame for processing applications.
Two processing times are displayed in calendar days, indicating how long it is taking to finalise 75 and 90 per cent of applications submitted globally.
