OMG guys!!! I was in my class and received a miss call from my lawyer. Then an email. I GOT MY 820!!!!!!!!!!! I literally was jumping up and down and then had a little cry because even though there's still a long way to go till the 801, it's still another hurdle jumped. This is such a relief.

Now to continue collecting receipts :rolleyes:

Good luck to everyone else!

Fiontong, 2 days after my application, I hope you're next too!!

The wait is over!

Well, the officer called my name.

In his office, he said the result is positive.

The 801 was granted today. 11 months after application date.

Thanks to everyone on this forum for your input.

Wishing you all a speedy grant.

(The office was an email, in case you're wondering :))

Huge congratulations! I think we're around the same application date (14th July '15) so I'm hoping for good news soon! Have a great weekend to celebrate, and try not to think too much about the 801, enjoy this for now ;)

docs for immi

I have been reading through everyone's questions and responses (new here) Question - once the 820 has been granted are there different docs to upload for the 801? Does the immi log in site change what it requires? I keep seeing people talking about docs and adding more and more etc etc. I did my app once - answered as much as I could and assumed there would be no more docs to upload unless requested by my CO - which there was - 3 that's it - am I wrong?

Also I still have heaps of space left for uploading yet I keep hearing everyone saying they don't have enough space... It seems excessive to need 120 files - am I being naive?

Thanks anyone for the clarification.

If you have your evidence well organised that number (I think) is excessive.

You will need to upload more evidence to prove the relationship is still ongoing when you're due for your 801.

Thank-you so much for your quick reply Arabella! I was feeling fine with everything even though it has been taking so long and then found this site yesterday. I have been panicking ever since second guessing everything. After applying for 820/801 in Feb of 2015 my CO finally got ahold of me and asked for 3 docs. None of which was the aus police check which I hadn't done. I have initiated it now based on reading everyone elses posts. A bit concerned too because it appears they are only looking at 820 but my husband and I have been married for 2 years and together for 5 so I thought both would be done at once.... sigh... it may be a long wait still...

Well if you can prove that you've been in a de facto relationship for 5 years, then you should be granted 801 straight away and if you're not you should say something.

It depends what you put on your application around how long you'd been in a de facto relationship.

Because we weren't living together, we couldn't put any dates before we got engaged which was a little frustrating because it meant we had to wait until we had our marriage cert to apply.

What are the documents they requested CJaus? IS that your first correspondence from them?

Yes this was the first from a CO (I had the hurry up auto Apr doc that everyone else was talking about)- the CO asked for - 40sp , 2x 888, and some evidence of relationship with spouse.

I don't have docs like utilities or rent ect as my hubby pays all of those and they are in his name - I just provided a word document outlining how our house is run from day to day and future goals such as buying a house etc.

I also applied on Feb 2015, and they requested for a medical and AFP a month ago and still no news.. What evidence did they request is it for evidence before the application or if the relationship is still on going?

The medical was done and requested months ago and was flagged in a generic email or online through the immi acct - cant remember now. Then there has been nothing since until now - they didn't specify timeframe of the info - It covers both really - the 888s in short - say yes we have known they are married and hold themselves out to be and are still in a committed relationship...

The request was clear that this was pertaining to an 820 request though and did not mention 801 at all which worries me ...

Yes I think I got lucky. My 820 got approved short of 12 months of waiting. Of course now it's the long trek towards the 801. I believe the backlog is still on and it might be 12 months from eligibility date so that's another 2 years of waiting. Oh well, keep on trekking!! :)

Always good to check out forums and everything else to find out what you need. This forum is rather informative and I found people to be quite helpful as well!

Hi guys,

Thanks for providing me with remote support over the past couple of months while I waited impatiently for the results of my 820/801 visa application.

I applied for the 820 visa in January 2015, 17++ months later, and with much pain and trepidation, I have just been granted the 801 visa, bypassing the 820.

As a same sex couple, this has came as nothing short of a surprise.

Hang in there guys, I am sure positive news would find the rest of you soon.

cheers.
