Processing time

Applications for a residence permit are processed by UDI. You will find information about the processing time on UDI’s website

The embassy is not able to reply to application status enquiries for cases processed by UDI.

Applications for working holiday permits and residence permits for skilled workers may be processed by the embassy in Canberra. If your application is processed locally, you will in most cases get the result of your application within 4 weeks after the embassy has received the application and all required supporting documents.
