Info from DIAC
Has email from our agent today - to say that the Visa processing times are delayed at the present.
Apparently this is due to the recent terrorist activities and the changes to visa application in July and the ones expected in Sept.
We were told 5-6 months to get SIR 495 Visa applying the traditional way, (paper based). New guidlines suggest 6-9 months.
Anyway just thought Id let everyone know what our agent has told us.
That's not good news:(
Might have to phone our agent and see whether he says the same as it would almost definately mean we had to change our plans.
