The Australian government has managed to reduce the processing time for various categories of Australian visas. The applicants can now receive approval in less period of time as compared to earlier.

The DHA also highlighted its commitment to supporting Australia's international tourism industry.

This boost not only helps the tourism sector but also helps employment opportunities, investments, and overall growth in communities across Australia.
