How long before departure should I apply for the visa?
The Australia visa can be applied for well before departure. After all, it is valid for one year from the moment of approval. When the visa is applied for, no flight or accommodation needs to have been booked yet. It is also not necessary to have set an exact travel date. If possible, submit your visa application several weeks before departure.
Average delivery times of the Australia visa
On average, the visa is approved in 5 days. If you need the visa urgently, you can also submit an urgent application. Urgent applications are approved within 60 minutes in 95% of cases. The delivery times start as soon as the visa fee has been paid.

Visa delivery times are never guaranteed
At the top of this page, you can find the average delivery times for the Australia visa. These are explicitly not maximum delivery times. The maximum delivery time can never be guaranteed, not even for urgent applications. This is because Australiaʼs immigration service subjects about one in twenty applications to a random manual check. In those cases, an application is checked more extensively, and it takes longer before the visa is granted. In exceptional cases, it may even take more than a few days. If a random check is made, this does not mean that the application is likely to be rejected. However, sometimes additional information or documents are requested. It is also possible that a random check is made for one traveller in a group application, while all other travellers have already received a visa.
If you select the option ‘urgent deliveryʼ in the application form, your application will be processed by a visa specialist of e-Visa.co.uk within 24 hours after payment of the application fee, but usually within ten minutes, and afterwards submitted to the Australian immigration service. You will therefore usually receive your visa within 60 minutes, though this can never be guaranteed.
