Does someone know what happens to those people who have been invited and applied but not yet granted, considering the closure of temporary skilled visas? My estimated processing time keeps extending every time I reach the range. It’s an emotional rollercoaster but I’m starting to see the funny side of it especially as it’s taken two years to get to this point.
I also think realistically March to June 2021 will be a realistic expectations for borders, ie post vaccinations. Australia seems hyper paranoid about Coronavirus and obviously aiming for elimination rather than control. It has been scary to watch how reactive they have been about their state borders because it makes the concept of opening international borders unimaginable. On the plus side, for the next pandemic, I can only hope that I will be in Australia as they have done a solid job with this one .
