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.

Hi I have a question about 888form. Can we use the same 888form when I applied 820 for 801 application? Or need to write again? Thanks

It has to be current, to confirm the relationship is still ongoing at the date of the 2nd stage.

If we went through an agent the first time (and are no longer using them since we have the 820), do we need to reapply for a 801 in a new VEVO account? Do I start applying 1 month before the 24 month date from when we first applied? Sorry just wanted to make sure and this was what popped up first in the search.

I just applied for my 801 visa at 23 months since 820 application. Currently on my 820 and hoping for speedy grant! We have been defacto for 7 years next month!

Some 801s get done quickly, 25% taking under 4 months in November 2021, but 25% took over 12 months.

When was your 820 granted?

I saw an earlier post of yours where you said you moved in together in Oct 2017, just over 4 years ago.

It seems you were about 8 months short of the time to get a double grant.

I might be in the 10% because I lodge my application for a partner visa 2 and a half years ago, they send me a mail two months ago to ask for more informations.

If you mean you applied for the 820, 2 and a half years ago, then you are only at 6 months waiting so far.

The processing time for the 801 started 24 months after the 820 application.

When was your 820 granted? And what nationality?

Hi guys,

Just seeking some advice/clarification.

Here's my timeline:

Applied for 820 and bridging granted: 29 June 2019
Request for more info: 30 Jan 2021
All documents uploaded and clicked 'I confirm I have provided information as requested': 15 Feburary 2021
820 Granted: 17 Mar 2021
801 Application completed and submitted: 29 June 2021

In my portal under 'attach documents' the only categories listed are the following:
Font Rectangle Screenshot Number Software


This is significantly less than the 820 and some of these categories are not applicable to my situation, those that are, I have already completed during the 820 application process.

The advice I seek is do I have to refill out the forms which are applicable to me? And how much longer should I expect to wait on a 820 (since it's been granted on March 2021) before being granted my 801?

Thank you in advance

If you have already been granted your 820 (which I assume you have if you’ve submitted your application for 801) then you do not need to apply for a bridging visa B.

The 820 allows you to leave and return without having to apply for a separate bridging. I just recently left for the UK over Christmas and returned without any problems and I’m currently on an 820

A lot of the forms of the application are generic. The immi website has all the details you are after.

With the categories, just use 'financial' or 'Social aspects of the relationship, Evidence of' and then clearly label the file you are uploading, as either financial, social, cohabitating, or commitment and what the document is.

I personally think when you are actively uploading docs, then someone at immigration would look at it and make a decision sooner.

If you leave the 801 application for a while or only upload a small handful, it may look incomplete.

-received 820 temporary residency August 2018
-received 801 permanent residency Sept 2021 (almost exactly to the date that initial was lodged)

Hi all,

Wasn't sure of the right place to ask this question as I know most people here are waiting on their 801s but thought maybe there'd be someone who could answer. I was granted permanent residency about 4 months ago and now I'm curious, do I need to update immigration to address changes if moving house? Do I need to update them on anything? I'll be applying for citizenship when it's available to me, but for now, any insight?

Cheers,
Nic
