801 partner permanent visa - waiting for 18 mths already

Hi Everyone,

I've been waiting for my 801 visa for more than 18 months already. My eligible date should be Jul 2015. I was applied using paper post and I did receive the acknowledge letter. Recently I called immi 131881 for asking the status of my visa,but they told me it's still processing.

Is here anyone incurred similar situation as me and can let me know except waiting, what else can I do?

Thanks for anyone can help.

Lena

I hope you got your Visa. We waited 2 years . The application was rejected and now we wait 1 year to appear before the Australian Administrative Tribunal at an additional application and Immigration Lawyer cost

I'm sorry to hear that. Did they say the reason why? Good luck with the tribunal.

Things just got worse with the 2nd Immigration agent giving incorrect advice that a) Cost us a lot of $$ and b) Jepourdised or AAT appeal.
That means we have changed immigration agents yet again... 3rd time lucky as this guy is proactive. Turns out that both other agents were slack and were not giving us the correct advice.

Added to that there is now a 44,000 case backlog to appeal to the AAT which means the 12 months has now blown out to 24-36 month wait. By the time we appear, it will be nearly 5-6 years of blood sweat and tears.

The documentation required for the appeal is even more stringent than the initial application with most documentation having to be redone. All our activities, financial and social have to be reported in detail on a monthly basis.
This has nearly killed me as it is very stressful and still no guarantee at the end of the day.
The cost of using the other agents is costly and legal fees will be greater than the sum we will sue for.

What really irks me is that these refugees get into the country without all these stringent requirements and get the red carpet treatment.

Hi Lena,
Are you still waiting for your 801?
I submitted mine in June 2019 and wait patiently.
The 820/801 process is two stage, wait for 2 years (probation period i call it) then submit the 801.....the 801 should ideally and fairly be processed within 1 month....have waited/done probation for 2 years....why have to wait up to another two years ....just because of insufficient immigration staff. Once the 801 is submitted, it should get priority processing!
I did all my 300/820/801 online, with the 801, when I submitted it online, it showed as "submitted" but then on the second day it showed "being processed". I do not think it's actually been processed so why the status shows that, i'm very confused.
Cheers
