All about 190 Visa Processing Time 2023
What is a Subclass 190 Skilled Migration Visa?
Visa 190 is a skilled migration visa to Australia. It allows applicants of a 190 visa who are nominated by an Australian state or capital territory to live, work and study in Australia along with their partners and children.

- 75% visa applications are processed in 18 Months.
- 90% visa applications are processed in 36 Months.
190 Visa Processing time may be different for each individual case. This variance of processing time could be due to a range of factors discussed below:
- Whether the applicant of subclass 190 Skilled Nominated Visa has lodged a complete application or not with all required documents. A Visa application that is submitted without documentation will have delayed processing time.
- When an application for a 190 Visa is lodged with incomplete information or documents, a delegate of the Australian Department of Home Affairs may request these documents or information. The processing time of visa will depend upon how much time the Visa applicant takes to respond to the delegate’s request.
- A visa 190 application is accompanied by a plethora of information and documents. So, an Australian government delegate who accesses a Visa application needs to thoroughly check all the information and documents.
This sometimes takes more time. The more dependants in a 190 Visa application, the more time will it generally take and thus increase the processing time of Visa file.
- There is certain information that is required to fulfill the 190 Visa criterion. This includes health assessments, character assessments, and national security requirements. The more time these external agencies take the more chances are that Visa processing time will increase.
- Processing time is also affected by the number of places available for 190 Visa in the Australian Migration program approved by the Australian government.
- The number of 190 visa applications in the queue also affects the processing time .
- The ministerial directions also affect the processing time. From time to time the Minister of Home Affairs representing the Australian government policy may prioritize certain visas. This may affect processing time.
