How long before departure should I apply?
The Australia visa can be applied for well before departure. After all, it is valid for one year from the moment it is issued. At the time the visa is applied for, no flight or accommodation needs to have been booked yet. It is also not necessary to have established an exact travel date. If possible, submit your visa application several weeks before departure.
Average delivery times of the Australia visa
The Australia visa is on average issued after 5 days. If you are in urgent need of the visa, you can also submit an urgent application. Urgent applications have a 95% certainty of being issued within an hour. The delivery times start once the cost of the visa has been met.

Delivery times for visas are never guaranteed
At the top of the page are the average delivery times for the Australia visa. These are expressly not maximum delivery times. This is because the maximum delivery time can never be guaranteed. Not even with urgent applications. The reason for this is that the immigration service of Australia subjects about one in twenty applications to a random background check. In that case, the application is checked more extensively and it will take longer before the visa is issued. In exceptional cases this can take more than a few days. If a random check is carried out, this obviously does not mean that the application has a high probability of being rejected. You might be asked for extra information or documents. It can also occur that a random check is performed for one traveller in a group application, while all the other travellers have already received a visa.
If you have selected the option “urgent delivery” in the application form, your application will always be processed within 24 hours after payment, usually within fifteen minutes, by a visa specialist of e-Visa.co.uk. Afterwards, it is submitted to the immigration service of Australia. As a result, you will usually, but not always, receive your visa within one hour.
