      the time frame given by DIAC on the website is max 5 months, however different people get different responses, I just applied few days ago, and uploaded All the required documents, and am just waiting. Today I got my temporary Medicare Card, and they told me that when I get the visa I just have to inform them and they will change it from 1 year to 5 years as normal card.
