Sounds just like a generic automated email unfortunately.Hi all,
Applied for 820/801 from a PMV 300 visa early last year. Still waiting after a year. Recently received this automated email from immi on the anniversary of the application date of 820/801
"Subject: Your Australian Partner (subclass 820) visa application is progressing
Automated message from the Department of Home Affairs
We are writing to inform you that your application for a Partner visa is in progress. Your application takes time to process as we complete a number of thorough checks."
Does this mean the grant will be coming soon or is it just a generic email sent on the anniversary of applications?
Im sure you will be due for a grant soon. 1 year coming from a PMV is quite a long time, so I would imagine hopefully not too much longer.
On the plus side, it means you wont have to provide as much evidence when you are eligible to apply for the 801, as generally all evidence to give them is since the grant of the 820.
