Work and Holiday Visa Subclass 462 Processing Time
As a thumb rule, the department decides on
- 75% of cases in 44 days
- 90% of cases within 80 days
These visa Subclass 462 processing times apply to both categories. However, there can be delays in your Australia Visa 462 processing times due to various factors.
- Incorrect filling of data in your application form can cause undue delays
- Supplying incomplete information can result in the department seeking additional data and clarifications. It can also delay the decision-making process.
- The department needs time to verify the information submitted by you.
Seeking the services of immigration consultants is the best way to avoid delays due to incorrect or incomplete furnishing of information. Our professionals ensure that you do not exclude any relevant information while submitting your application.
Annual Visa Limit
- Other than the US, every country in the eligible country list has an annual visa limit for the First Work and Holiday visa applicants. The financial year is from 1 July to 30 June. On reaching the threshold, the department does not process any further applications.
- Applicants should contact the local immigration offices in their respective countries if the applicants belong to China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam to check out the annual cap for their respective countries.
- Applicants belonging to Argentina and Uruguay should contact the immigration office in Argentina.
- Similarly, Chilean and Peru residents should contact the Chile immigration office.
- Applicants from the rest of the countries in the eligible country list such as Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, and Spain should contact the Australian immigration office in Germany.
