Partner visa applications

Processing times for Partner visa applications are increasing.

The Australian Government has allocated 39,799 places for partner visas in the financial year 2019-20, the same allocation as the previous financial year.

For the 2018-19 financial year, there is an identified backlog of over 80,000 partner visa applications for overseas-born people who are married to or intend to marry Australian citizens or permanent residents.

As a result of static allocations and a large backlog, processing times are expected to increase with most visa applications now taking two years or more to decide.
