One of the biggest questions South Africans looking to immigrate to Australia ask is, ‘How long does it take to process the visa application and move to Australia?’
It’s a difficult question to answer exactly because each Australian visa application is unique, and the time it takes to process all depends on what kind of Australian visa you are applying for and how many points you have to qualify for a visa through your Australian skilled visa assessment.
For example, a 189 or 190 visa can take as little as 4 months to finalise, but typically it takes a few months longer.
In terms of the total time it takes from when you decide to apply for your Australian visa, and the day you touch down in Australia – this is totally dependent on your visa type, your occupation, if you qualify for a visa, and how quickly you are able to move. Some Migrate 2 Oz clients who have successfully immigrated to Australia have done so within a matter of months, however for most South Africans, it’s a lengthy immigration application process that can take up to 2 to 3 years.
What is important to remember, and it’s something that so many Migrate 2 Oz clients have said, is that it is worth the wait!
