Hi Guys,

I applied for my 801/820 partner visa de-facto visa on the 23/12/2017

I just received an email from the case officer requesting for more information. On the check list the officer asks for a:-

police clearance certificate - which I can provide

Health exam - which I can provide

Birth certificate - which I can provide

Evidence of your relationship with your de facto partner

My problem is with the last one I have already uploaded a lot of evidence in regards to our relationship. Including social photos, joint lease, Joint bank account,stat decs, invitations etc.

What more could they want me to upload? If anyone could help or someone who had a similar experience could tell me what did they did it would be much appreciated.

Thank you so much!
Is your relationship registered? Did you provide those evidences over time during the length of the relationship or just proof they exist? For example, a joint bank account that shows when it was opened and that it's been used over time (groceries, bills, furniture purchases, etc) or just that you have a joint account?

See LRR's post above. Just having a lease, joint account, and photos isn't much on their own. It seems they expect to see more than that.

Yeah, I've provided bank statements from our joint account and individual accounts. I've highlighted all our transactions for the length of our relationship which shows groceries,purchases etc. Yes, my relationship is registered.

My partner applied 820 around 01/12/2017, and applied BVB around 01/07/2017. The Christmas holiday is coming, is it safe to apply BVB again? Will it has any negative impact on the application?

About three weeks ago, I posted that I had received request for additional information from Immigration. They requested my police check, sponsor police check and FBI check, and health exams. I was worried as we were about to travel overseas for two weeks that I wouldn't be able to get everything in by their requested 28 days turnover. I was able to get my police check and my health exams done and added to my Immi Account, but my partner's police check had not arrived back. I emailed Immigration and let them know that everything was posted except that police check and that I would get the police check uploaded once we got it back in the mail after we returned from overseas.

We got back from overseas on Sunday. Partner police check was in the mail. Got it certified and uploaded Monday (yesterday). Emailed Immigration to let them know that everything was up there as requested....

Lo and behold today, at around 9:30am, I get an email from Immigration, granting me my 820! I was amazed. I probably didn't get them the final document until 3pm yesterday. Was not expecting such a quick turnaround! Wow, and yay!

So my details:

Origin Country: USA
820 Applied for: May 2017
820 Granted: November 2018
Wait time: 18 months.

Have faith! It will happen it just takes time.

Congrats! For future reference for the 801, there's no need to upload certified documents. The good part about waiting so long for the 820 is that now you're eligible for the 801 in about 6 months and you only need to provide evidences of your relationship since the grant of the 820, which means Stage 2 documents for you should be pretty easy!

Hi Everyone,

I've been reading this forum for a while and thought I'd join the conversation and share my timeline so far as it's been helpful reading other people's timelines. I am the sponsor for my de facto Taiwanese partner.

Applied onshore (820/801) on the 27/11/17
Request for more information and medical checks on 6/8/18
Supplied requested information on 30/8/18
Received auto-generated "we are writing to inform you that your application for a Partner visa is in progress" email 27/11/18

Also to note is that our application is being processed in Manila, Philippines.

Only 12 months down ;)

Hi Nicoski,

Thank you for sharing your timeline.

My visa is also being processed in Manila Philippines. I was wondering what other information did they ask from you other than the medical check?

Your response would be much appreciated.
Thank you!

They requested identity documents for my partner such as household registration and national identity card. The other requested documents were in relation to my online sponsorship application (form 40SP) as I hadn't finalised and submitted this. They included relationship history statements, evidence of the length of de facto relationship and proof that I'm an Australian citizen.

We also uploaded more evidence such as photos/texts at the time to her application.

How do you all know where the visa is being processed?
Hi Bishjm78,

I know ours is being processed in Manila because the correspondence with the case officer was sent from there. If you haven't had any correspondence yet then I'd imagine it would be impossible to know.

You can submit a complaint once you've passed the waiting times listed on the site. Give them two weeks to respond and if you get nothing, then you can contact the Ombudsman. That sometimes helps to get it moving. 29 months is a LONG time. You should get both the 820 and the 801. Have you provided more evidence since lodgement? You may want to, as that could help too.

Hi everyone,

Just joined the forum and want to ask something. I submitted most of the documents for the partner visa on May. They asked for my partners police check like a month ago, the only one I haven't submitted yet is the medical exam because everyone recommends waiting until the officer asks for them. I am planning to travel overseas for a period of 5 weeks. Already applied for the BVB visa. Just would like to know if there are chances they will ask for these exams while I'm overseas. Should I submit them before?

Thanks a lot!

Hi guys, I’m pretty new here, here is my story. I’m currently on a student BVA, I applied for my partner visa 820 on 29/11 through my lawyer. Have only received Acknowledgement of Application from my lawyer. When am I suppose to receive BVC? or is it that I’m not eligible for BVC because I’m on BVA and have got a pending case at the Tribunal? Have tried getting in touch with my lawyer, but I always called at the wrong time when he’s at the court house.
Please guys I need your help with info about these.

Hi guys, I am a new member here. I have been reading the forum for a while. I have been visited Australia on tourist visa since 2011. I am marrying my husband in September 2018 after 9 months of dating.
Finally DIBP granted my daughter an Australian citizenship by descent after provide a DNA from my ex partner.
Lucky I don't have to bring her outside Australia.

I have applied a partner visa 820/801 in Australia in August this year. Since my tourist visa still active until September 2019 and I never stay in Australia more than 3 months. Hopefully my BVA will start after Christmas.
Btw is it the statement of relationship very important to upload ? Is it only me as the applicant or my sponsor has to write as well?
Is the visa process depending on the CO assigned?


Thank you

Hi everyone, silent reader here, I would like to share my experience.

I've lodged my application on 3rd of May 2018, then got a request for AFP check, birth certificate for my child and medical check on 6th of November 2018 by CO. I did the medical check the next day and also submitted my AFP check (I've got the check already). And after around month time on 8th of December I got both 820 and 801 granted! Best Christmas present ever.

Hope for the best for everyone!

That's great news! Congratulations! May I ask which country you are from? Also any idea why both were granted at the same time?

Thank you!
