I know the general processing time from 15 to 27 days, but I have heard that they do process 90% of the Application within 7 days. I am just posting this question to see if anyone from our community had such experience where Sub Class 600 Application got approved/rejected within the first 7 days?

    I'm voting to close this as off-topic because it is a survey, not an objectively answerable question. – David Richerby Feb 4 '19 at 18:40

    I disagree I am just trying to know that if someone has got the response before 15 days or not, cause I am trying to plan my schedule accordingly. I respect your opinion but please do not destroy the post. – SyedZ Feb 4 '19 at 20:21

    You shouldn't leave your application until the last minute. If you're relying on "15-27 days" meaning "probably 7 days" then you're quite likely to have problems. – David Richerby Feb 4 '19 at 21:34

The official statistics regarding visa processing times can be found on the Department's Web site. This page is updated monthly.

As at 31 December 2018, the page shows that:

  • 75% of subclass 600 tourist applications are processed in 15 days
  • 90% of applications are processed in 27 days
  • Depending on demand at a particular location, applications can be processed in as little as 48 hours, to as much as more than 20 days
