Not sure how long the current processing is for family visas, but I do know there is no way of expediting it (other than doing your paperwork quickly and correctly so that doesn't add delays)

 

After all everyone has (or had) parents so your claim can't be more important or necessary than the next parent visa applicant

870 visas usually don't have a queue as it's a temporary visa.  However, if your parents are off-shore then processing is likely to be on hold due to the border closure.  Onshore parents are getting 870 visas fairly quickly.

There’s an annual limit of 15000 for 870 and given the length of times the border has been closed and the very long queues for  the parent visas a lot of people  have already applied ready for when the  borders open. I believe the 15000 limit has already been breached  for this last year
