DHPL Travels is not responsible for any financial losses incurred due to delayed visa processing or unsuccessful applications.
Embracing Digital Transformation: Online Visa Applications
In line with the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Strategy, the Department of Home Affairs is continuously improving its services by transitioning to digital platforms. Starting from 30 September 2021, all applicants outside Australia applying for a Visitor visa (subclass 600) must lodge their applications online via ImmiAccount.
Applying online offers numerous advantages, including faster processing times, greater flexibility, and the ability to attach additional documentation or make corrections as required. Please note that paper applications will only be accepted if applicants have received special written notice from the Department.

- Paper applications for this visa will no longer be accepted once the online form is introduced.
- A new Transit visa online application form, accessible through ImmiAccount, will include additional questions.
Timely Updates on Processing Times
At DHPL Travels, we pride ourselves on transparency. You can find current processing times for your specific visa or citizenship type on our website. To avoid delays, we urge you not to contact us for status updates unless your application exceeds the global processing timeframes.
Understanding Processing Times
Please note that processing times may vary due to individual circumstances, including the completeness of your application, prompt responses to requests for additional information, and the time required for checks and external parties’ involvement. Additionally, demand fluctuations and peak periods can impact processing times.
To ensure your application falls within the published processing times, we strongly recommend submitting a complete application. Checklists available on ImmiAccount will help ensure you have included all the required documents.
