Processing time

The processing time for applications is normally up to 15 calendar days after the embassy or consulate has received the application. In some cases, applications are sent to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI), and the processing time in these cases may be up to 45 calendar days.

In Australia, you will in most cases get the result of your application within 2 weeks after the embassy In Canberra has received the application and all required supporting documents. However, in peak seasons (April-July and November-December), the processing time may be up to 30 business days.

Some applications are subject to prior consultation. The automated consultation process may add up to 21 days to the processing time.
