According to Travel and Meetings buyer, there are major delays in issuing Australian visas due to a backlog at the Australian High Commission’s South African offices.

Before the delays, the processing time was 10 working days for business visas and one month for tourist visas.

At present, the processing time is approximately one month for business visas and six weeks for tourist visas.

We strongly advise you to apply for your visa in advance to allow for extra processing time.
