It is has been noted that certain types of visa applications have seen a quicker turnaround than usual. It is expected that processing has been prioritised for Hong Kong nationals, PMSOL, and agricultural sector occupations in regional Australia.
Holders of eligible passports, specified as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China or British National (Overseas) passports are given the highest priority within the variously prioritised applications.
Holders of these eligible passports, onshore, are given first priority, and then eligible passport holders, offshore, the next highest priority.
