      189 likely timescales vs 'visa processing times' ??


      Can anyone help clarify likely timescales for a 189 visa. I've read in a few places, including immi website, that processing times are 12 months from the application date. However looking at some of the posts on here things seem to move a lot quicker.

      What is the likely time from lodging an EOI to getting invited to apply?
      What is the likely time from applying for your visa to getting final approval?

      I understand there's no certainty on timescales but it would be really useful to hear how other people have got on.

      Thanks in advance

      Definitely not 12 months as of now... It does not take more than 2 months to be assigned a case officer for a 189 Visa. This is how it has been till last month I can say. Could change from July 1 2013 as there will be a lot of other Visa Classes being Invited and they would fall in a upper priority class than the 189 Visas. So it could increase 189 processing times but I am just speculating here. I would not know for sure.!

      Or get your background checks referred.... we`ve been waiting since August 2012 for that, everything else was finalized in July ( CO was assigned to us in about a month).

      If you`ve never traveled/lived in a "high risk" country, yours should get processed much faster than that.
