Skip 820 Partner Visa and go to 801?

Hi everyone. I have just applied for the Temporary and Permanent Partner Visa subclass 820. I have read online that if a relationship de facto has lasted for 3 or more years at the time of the application, a permanent visa can directly be granted (instead of going through the initial temporary visa phase and wait 2 years). Does anyone confirm this? I have sent a letter by post to the Immigration to request the consideration of the grant of the permanent visa , since me and my fiancče are together from over 6 years now. I also spoke to an immigration agent who told me this would be a possible situation in some instances but not all. Anyway, there is a lot of confusion and not enough information online, this is why I’m writing on this forum. . . Has anyone been able to skip the temporary partner visa and automatically have the permanent granted? If so, how long did it take you to receive the notification of permanent grant from the day that you applied?

Some people do get the 801 grant on the same day as the 820.

It is normally an automatic process, based on your relationship proof information in your application.

It often takes longer than the average 820 processing time, although a few are faster.

The immigration site does specify the conditions for this, which basically includes those living as a couple for three years at time of application. Or two years if you have children.

Some exceptions seem to occur.

This visa is meant for a married or de facto partner of an Australian citizen, or an Australian permanent resident, or an eligible New Zealand citizen to enter and remain in Australia. The visa once approved will be granted for an initial two (2) years and if after two (2) years the relationship is deemed genuine, a permanent visa will be granted to the applicant. There are several eligibility requirements that the applicant should meet. For instance, for married applicants, the partner and his/her spouse must be committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of others. Further, the marriage must be valid under Australian law. As for de facto applicants, it is important to note that their de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before they apply for the visa. The common question that is posed is this— Will the time spent dating each other or chatting online count as being in a de facto relationship and the answer is that, it may not. Further requirements for both married and de facto partners include: having a sponsor who applies for the visa when the application is lodged and while on this visa. The sponsor must be acceptable to the Australian Department for Home Affairs and must be the same person who would sponsor your visa after two (2) years from the date of first granted visa. Age wise, all applicants must be 18 or older when they apply. In addition, the partner must meet Australia’s health and character requirements and further the applicants including family members who don’t apply the visa with the applicant to pay their debt to the Australian Government.
