Why and How the Visa Processing Time Got Shorter?
The Government is able to get the processing time shortened as 600 officers were recruited between 1 July 2022 and 30 June 2023. With the new recruiters, the Government is able to process all temporary and migration visa applications quickly and efficiently.
There is no specific reason other than that the Government is showing their commitment to their work program. Also, the Government acknowledged the critical role that skilled migrants played in nation building, cultural variety, social cohesion, and economic prosperity.
