Processing Time Required For Visa Subclass 836


Carer Visa Subclass 836 Processing Time

There is no fixed Australian 836 Visa processing time. The department deals with these visas as and when they come subject to capping and queuing.

Capping of Visas

Specific visas have an annual migration cap. It entails that the department will process these visas until the number of applicants reaches the cap level or ceiling level. On attaining the cap, the department stops issuing these visas for the particular Migration Program year and subjects it to queuing for the next migration year.


All parent and family visas face capping and queuing. These visas have high demand. Both the carer visas Subclasses 116 and 836 are subject to caps and queues. The department accepts all eligible applications that meet the criteria and place it in a queue until a slot becomes available. As the places fall vacant, the department finalizes the application from the queue. It is a fixed queue where no application will get priority over the others.
