Hey guys i need some help regarding my second stage partner visa 801 i hope someone can help me
i applied for 820 using an agent they charged me arm and a leg like nearly 3000$ i got my visa in june this year and my application is due for 801 in September this year i gave em a call and they want another 2000$ for the 801 lodgement so i decided me and my wife to save the money and do it ourselves
My first question is is there gonna be any problem with my lodgement because its not lodged from same account as 820 ?
2: there is a question in the application form online asking if i have family members that reside in australia i got just a brother on student visa and ive got my parents in law they are aussies should i just mention them in this question ?
3: can i do my statement and upload it ad ms word or pdf instead of filling up the boxes
4: am i too late as my eligibility was last month .
Thanks all in advance I appreciate every help for my questions

1) There's no problem doing it from a different account this time.
2) Sorry, what does the question specifically say? If it's asking for family members already residing in Australia, yes, you'd mention them.
3) Yes, you can write "Please see uploaded statement called [whatever you named the file]" in each of the boxes.
4) No, you're not too late. You're not too late until they contact you and ask for it and you don't provide it within the deadline they give you.

Hi Modokaba,

The previous reply and info from College Girl is correct. I am a Registered Migration Agent and am amazed at how people get ripped off by unscrupulous agents. You may be eligible for a refund of your fee if there is a certain document they didn't send you relating to your service fee. Also, check your contract about what the fee included. It should state somewhere that the service and contract that you paid for ENDS when the first stage visa as been decided upon. If it doesn't specify when the service ends, then there may also be redress. Finally, for anyone else out there, its always worth checking and 'shopping around' if using an Agent (and always check that they are registered by the MARA). $2,000 for the second stage is rather high! I charge $2,300 for the whole process. Cheers - Phil (Superior Migration Consultancy) Melbourne.

I would mention them all. Better to mention them to be on the safe side.

Hi madocaba your second question about family member in australia they asked immediate family member in australia. Only your spouse and children would be immediate family member according to regulation 1.12AA migration regulation 1994, not the in laws or you brother i guess.

The question doesn?t say Immediate family members it asks if the applicant have family members that reside in Australia ?. There?s a box next to it u can tick the person relationship to you and there?s father/mother in law there in that box

I am also in the process of applying for my husbands 801.

Do we need to get the documents certified by a JP or is colour copies accepted? IE: marriage certificate, passport.

color copies are okay for online application.

what relationship evidences are you providing for second stage ?:)
Thank you for confirming!

Do we have to provide an update from when the 820 was submitted or approved?

Our list of evidence is very similar to what we supplied for 820 stage, and the same with the content for 'financial commitments' 'nature of household' etc ...
- marriage certificate
- rental lease renewed
- joint car insurance
- holiday bookings
- big purchases (fridge, couch)
- bank statements
- wedding invites

Do you have evidence along the same lines?

I think it is just the luck of the draw. There was someone esrlier in the year with 2 kids waiting over 15 months.

Unfortunately waiting and having alot of evidence so they can make a quick decision is key. It also doesn't hurt to regularly update the evidence.
