Please note there are a high number of visitor visa applications which were unable to be finalised due to travel restrictions in November. It will take time to process these applications as well as new applications which have been received since Australia’s borders reopened to visitors.
If you lodged your application more than 3 months ago, please upload updated information to your ImmiAccount. Relevant information to upload includes your current circumstances (employment information, financial information, or invitation letters) and travel plans. This will help us to work through the backlog of applications.
We encourage you not to make any irreversible travel plans until you have received a decision on your visa application as we may not be able to finalise your application before your desired travel dates due to a high number of applications. We appreciate your patience.
