Current turnaround times
The Turnaround Times (TAT) is the time (business days) taken for a document to be examined after it has been lodged. These timings include both electronic and paper lodged documents. This is updated daily.
If the document is lodged electronically and is all in order (AIO), it may be automatically registered on the same day. If the document is incomplete or incorrect, a requisition notice for further information will be sent to the lodging party which may extend the time taken for registration beyond the average TAT listed below.
If you have a document that is time sensitive, it may be able to be completed sooner than the average turnaround time. Please refer to our expedition process.
