One of the most common question and concern for visa applicants is the time it takes for them to find out whether there are any updates on their visa application and when they will find out the results of their application.

It is often difficult to gauge the timing of visa outcomes as many factors come into play including the number of applications received by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP), the completeness of the application and whether there are still documents required to finalise the assessment.

For the first time, the DIBP now publishes their processing times. This timeframe can give an applicant an indication on whether their visa application is being assessed and when to expect the release of visa outcomes.
