NSW Regional Area Orana Subclass 489 Processing Times Update

Regional Development Area Orana has been overflowed with applications for Australia Skilled Regional Visa Subclass 489 since the middle of June 2018.

The immigration department of Orana to speed up the process has brought in more people to help in application process. The ceiling has been fixed for the number of applications to be submitted on weekly basis. The estimates of application processing time for nomination by the state of NSW are given below:

  • The applications submitted to NSW in beginning of July till mid-late October will be processed by the end of December
  • The applications submitted to NSW in August till the end of December will be processed by the end of March 2019
  • There will be no prioritization of assessments due to expiration of visas because the region is flocked with the requests for priority assessment for those with expiring visas.

The immigration department has earlier accepted the requests to prioritize about to expire visas but from now onwards, no such requests will be entertained.

If the visa is due to expire, the immigration department expects the applicants to make other prior arrangements.

If still no alternative is foreseen, you may reply to the immigration department of Orana for refund of application and the refunds will be arranged in the second half of October 2018.
