820 and 801 help please

Hi all.

We are working on the 820/801 application now and would like to ask a few questions for those who have 'been there, done that'.

1) Since having our PMV 300 approved we have heard nothing at all from immigration about transferring case officers or how to go about applying for the 820/801. Should we have?

2) It asks for us to provide statements each stating how we met etc. Do we need to do all that again or can our statements just be about what we have done since the PMV was approved etc?

3) Our medical and criminal certs will not be 12 months old at the time of applying for the 820/801... will the checks we submitted with our original PMV300 application still be on their file and does this mean we do not have to redo them?

4) We provided immigration with Original translations of birth certificates etc... can we just send them through a certified copy instead of paying for ANOTHER original translation?

5) My fiance's PMV300 visa only allows her here until September, what happens if the 820 / 801 is not granted before this time? Do they just extend the PMV?

Hi golliwog,

In short,
1. DIAC is not gonna contact you about the issue of 820/801 application. All you need to do is after getting married, start the application.
2. Fill the forms, can keep the same relationship statements and update some more details after coming Au, wedding photos, etc.
3. Everything is already on DIAC system, you don't need to redo again those.
4. Not sure about that, call and check with DIAC.
6. Once your 820/801 is lodged, your fiance will be granted bridging visa A allow him/her to remain in Au to work and study as normal till the result come out. So don't worry.

Hi golliwog,

The Department will generally accepted certified copies for all supporting documents. The only original documents that they generally only need is police clearances

Thanks to both of you.

Just a follow up question. Do I (the sponsor) need to fill in a form 80?

No, you don't. Only applicant need to fill in a form 80 and get police clearance.
Unless there is a child under ages in your application and you are NZ citizen, so you will need a police clearance.

U may get this information from booklet 1, you can download it from immigration website. I found it really helpful.
