 CLIENT SERVICES INFORMATION

If you are planning to travel to Australia over the Christmas / New Year period, the deadline for all Visitor (subclass 600) and Temporary Work (subclass 400) visa applications is Friday 21 November 2014.
 

For applications lodged after 21 November 2014, the Visa Office is unable to guarantee a decision before Christmas.

Processing times for Visitor and Temporary Work visas

Applications for Visitor (subclass 600) and Temporary Work (subclass 400) visas should be lodged at the Australian Embassy in Belgrade at least 4 weeks ahead of your travel date. This is in keeping with the Australian Government’s global service standard of 4 weeks for these visa classes.
 

Processing times, however, may vary depending on a range of factors and personal circumstances, therefore, some applications take longer than 4 weeks to process. Please note that applications will be assessed and a decision made based on documentation provided at time of lodgement (for all electronically and paper lodged applications).
 

You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.
