I can't seem to find the old discussion thread. Hope it's ok to start a new one here. I am currently waiting to lodge my 801 visa. It would be nice to see timelines for those who has been granted 801 visa recently.
My partner and I are planning to move to Queensland (from Tas) but I won't have received my 801 visa yet. I currently have 820 and am about to apply for 801 but current wait time for decision is 13 months.
Will moving to QLD affect our application? Do they view it unfavourably to move...
I have a question to ask, as I am very confused. When do you apply for the 801 subclass?
We Lodged the 820/801 visa back in 17th August 2018.
The temporary partner visa 820 was granted back in September 2019.
Now on 17th July 2020 we got an email from immigration saying we can begin to...
I just received a letter from immigration requesting for more information to further process my 801 visa, but I find this request really weird because my case officer asks me to provide:

I lodged my 820 application on 6/6/2019 and am currently still waiting for it to be processed. I'm currently holding a Malaysian passport while my husband is a PR (from Singapore). We have also lodged the "Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia (300,309/100,820/801)" online...
I have a quick question in regards to my PR - Subclass 801.

From my understanding there is a "Must Entry Date", but I can't find anywhere the actual length from when the...
My partner and I are currently preparing to upload documentation for the second stage of his partner visa.

Just a 'heads up', the government has indicated that it will be making significant changes to the partner visa programme later this year.
The upcoming changes are brewing in the context of political pressure to close partner visa loopholes, following the conviction of a couple...
I am hoping to get some advice on how to approach the situation my partner and I are in. I moved to Australia in May 2011 and have been with my partner since. We didn't live together straight away but timeline is:
Feb 2014: Applied for de facto 820
Dec 2014: Granted 820
In May of 2016...
I've noticed a lot of confusion on forums regarding the 'living-together' aspect for de-facto couples wanting to apply for a partner visa.
I decided to write a blog post to clarify this aspect. The blog post goes through the law and policy.
Hello - I'm new to this forum and hoping that someone can help. Basically my partner and I moved back to my home country (UK) 6 months after my temporary partner visa (onshore, 820) was granted in Australia.

I'm an Australian citizen and I applied for a 820 spousal visa with my now fiancé in June 2015. We have just been denied the 820 due to lack of "proof of relationship" which is rather frustrating. We are trying to decide if it is worth appealing the AAT and have consulted with a lawyer...

Hi guys I was just wondering if many of you have had to do another health check for the 2nd stage permanent partner visa? I successfully passed my health checks when I applied for my provisional 820 visa in 2012 and was just wondering if Immi usually requires another health check? I will soon be...
