Need advice

Hi all,

I am new to this forum, I read most of threads here which are really helpful and encouraging.

I applied 820/801 combined Partner Visa application in first week of October 2013. Since then I haven't received any news or outcome from DIBP or nor department asked me any other documents. I sent few emails regarding progress of my 820 visa to DIBP in last couple of months but they just reply that my application is delayed due to security clearance, as I come from High Risk country.

As, it now has been almost 17 months waiting time for 820 visa, can any one please share there experiences, Your experience or advice will be much appreciated.

I had applied decision ready 820/801visa applications includes all required documents as well as police/character certificates overseas & Australian, Form 80 and medicals.

Your name has probably triggered a security flag on your application. Unfortunately names can do that as there is someone with the same name as you appears on someone's security list. It will usually clear itself in the end. Just be patient

Hi Jeremy

Thank you for your advice.

I have been living in Australia from last 8 years, and I had previously applied other temporary visas, there wasn't any problem arouse. And my immigration history is clean and I never breached any immi laws.

I know, I can't do anything except wait.

But, it doesn't make any sense for way too long waiting time for 820 visa, I am in 18 months waiting line now.

Thank you once again for your encouraging advice.
