At this time of the year the quotas are usually full. On the new financial year (1st July) they are reset and processing resumes.

It'll be within 90 days of getting invited.  If you don't get invited, the clock doesn't start ticking.

@MarisawrightI already got invited and did the visa submission. I'm just waiting for their decision. They are saying 90 days after visa submission and I submitted on December 6th.

It's a guide at best. If you dig deep somewhere it will say you'll get your decision in 90 days, except when you don't (or words like that).

Generally the figure they quite is how quickly 75% of applicants get dealt with, with those not in that grouping (i.e. the easy ones - although no idea what makes something easy or hard) taking longer

This is a retrospective processing time of past applications. It isn't an indication of the future.

I applied for an 887. The processing time was 4 months, it took me 2 years....

Still waiting

We got our 189 EOI in December and have submitted just waiting on medicals on the 19th. I don’t expect an invite for at least 7 months from what I have read but could be longer. Fortunately for us we have no intention of moving until June/July 2025.
