I applied for a Partner Visa 820/801 yesterday (30.5.18).
Paid with Bpay, after a few hours the confirmation of payment including the grant of a BVB came to my email. BVB will kick in when my tourist visa is about to expire in around a month. Then the job search can start.
I uploaded everything required including my police certificates (AFP and one from Germany) and will do medical examination on Monday. I know that this might be a bit early but will take that risk to maybe do it again in a year.
Letīs see how long it will take to hear back..
