190 Visa Processing

Up to 31/03/2021 DHA had the following 190s Lodged but not yet granted
– Onshore 7,356
– Offshore 5,586
Visa grants for this financial year up to 31/03/2021 are
– Onshore 6,430
– Offshore 1,232

Visas are not always granted in date lodged order even within the same occupations. This is usually because applications are processed by different case officers in different processing centres around Australia.

This is frustrating , but with DHA having other priorities with COVID related visa issues, there is little applicants can do but wait until your case officer is able to finalise your application.
