Thank you. :)
I'm also not sure about applying for AFP with finger prints or just normal one?
No, you don't submit fingerprints for the AFP check.

Thanks so much.
Have you got your visa granted?
I am so stressed now. So I made a mistake in the application. I remembered wrong year I met my parents in law and wrote in I have known them for 4 instead of 2.5. Do you think it might affect the progress?
How do I change it? or I cannot change anymore? :((

No, I have only been waiting for 4 months so far; so it will probably be a while before my visa goes through. As for the error, not sure. Maybe one of our veterans on here can advise you. Or, you could talk to one of the awesome RMAs on here for advise. Wish I could help.

You would be best guided to post a new thread on it and hope one of the migration agents sees it and replys.

However you can submit a form 1023 to rectify it - found here -https://www.border.gov.au/Forms/Documents/1023.pdf

BUT I sure as hell would be taking professional advice prior to doing that so that everything you say on the 1023 is correct and written in a way that describes the problem whilst having the least detrimental effect possible on your application. Migration agents aren't as expensive as partner visa applications but they can prevent them being declined for silly reasons.

I just decided to check my emails and well it is a great way to start the week for me and my partner as our (my) 820 visa was granted at 17:17 (AEST)! Thank you to everyone that has contributed to this forum as it help our application immensely and I hope every one else doesn't have too much longer to wait.

Here is my timeline:

Applied: 29th February 2016 (Online - Sydney)
Approval: 6th February 2017

I supplied all documentation including police checks and medical within 4 or 5 weeks of the initial application. I was never contacted by a case officer once throughout the process and the grant notification came through out of the blue. I was sure I had a few more months to wait given the processing times that I've been reading about on here.

The footer of the grant notification letter seems to suggest the application was processed by the Perth Office.

I called them in end of Nov and Dec, didnt tell me much other than no case officer is allocated. ATM the immigration website for partner visa application time have extended to 12-18 month.
Will try to ring again tomorrow. Worst case scenario, we might get 820 straight away (my wishful thinking)!

Oh NO! This is so painful!
I don't know why is taking so long for an application to be processed!
This is absolutely ridiculous!!!!

copy from the website
"Average processing time
Temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) - 12 to 18 months.
Permanent Partner visa (subclass 801) - 12 to 18 months from the date of eligibility."

does it mean that the overall process for getting 801 will take 3 and a half years????

Correct it can take up to 3.5 years to get the 801 IF the processing times do not increase again.

There is a PMV to 820 fee which from memory is $1145 plus credit card surcharge.

They will grant a bridging visa that comes into effect when the PMV expires.

You are reading it correctly! A very long process! I am glad at least we are in the process.

Hi,
We have lodged our 820 online on 06 Feb, didn't get the BVA straightaway until the next day I checked my immi account and saw the BVA grant. It was granted on 06th Feb but late came in my hubby's inbox :D

And this is what I saw in my immi today:

Important reminder:
This application will be eligible for consideration for permanent residence 2 years from lodgement (commencement date).

Immi and website are not talking to each other. I don't mind if it will take that long for PR but a bit sad that it will take longer for citizenship.

Ok, so I received my Dept of Ed Australia National Police Check today in the post. It states that it is a National Police Check. Will this suffice for my ANP? It was through the Dept of Ed in WA...I am the one who initiated it. I'm going to upload it anyway, but wanted to see if I would need to do a separate National Police Check for my 820? TIA!
