Subclass 476 visa processing time

How long Visa 476 Applications take to Process?

In March 2020, Australian Immigration stated that

75% of subclass 476 applications took 13 months or less to process while 10% took over 17 months.

Currently, Immigration is unable to provide any average Processing times due to COVID-19.

All visa processing times change every month, as they are the actual times for visa finalisations in the previous month.

Why do some Visas take longer than others?

Some applications do not have all the correct information and therefore may take longer, and others can be done in 6 or 9 months.

However, we have seen a number that are still waiting after 20 months because of their mistakes in their visa application.
