Default Grant delays

Hey All,
Hoping everyone is keeping safe.
I was able to pay the visa fee for 489 in October'19. Although, I am aware that the process has gone really slow and will continue to remain slow for a few more months, but just curious to find out the information and on-ground reality on the timelines. Usually, I have read it takes 8-12 months post making the payment for them to grant. How would these timelines will be affected now?
Keep safe everyone.
Thanks.
AP

489 and 491 were being processed really fast as they were regional visas and 3 months was the unusual delay

What has happened now, is anybody’s guess

Cheers

I agree to sir NB,

They grant the visa fast, we knew that 491 is the replacement for 489, if you didn't receive yet your visa grant, we don't have the clue. In our case, we (my whole family) already received our 491 visa grant last March.

Hope you will get yours soon sir.

Cheers!
