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?
Sounds just like a generic automated email unfortunately.

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.

I have lodged 820 on Feb last year, haven't get any news from them. Hope it can be faster. But I just heard last night about someone else got the 801 recently, his lodge time similar to mine. Hope mine granted ASAP.

Hi all,

Good news finally got my 820 and 801 granted today. So happy. After years of waiting it finally happened

Its been a long tortuous journey for me, with an initial rejected partner visa, rejection at the AAT and the reprieve via ministerial intervention and now 25 months later I have PR :)

Thanks to this forum for putting me in touch with knowledgeable migration agents as well as providing me with answers via all the posts that others have made

So to everyone still waiting, keep at it have faith and it will come.

Thanks

Great news for you
What was the reason they refused your visa initially?

My wife received her 820 grant today. A bit over 6 months. Processed in Suva
Interesting though, she never had to do a medical. We uploaded everything apart from her medical as she was in the early stages of her pregnancy when we applied.
We did supply a medical for her PMV300 but that expired in Sep 2018 so they gave her a fair bit of leeway

PMV300 Lodged 26 Sep 2017 in the Philippines
Medical requested 14 Nov 2017
PMV300 granted 20 Dec 2017 processed in Manila

820/801 Lodged 2 July 2018
820 Granted 16 Jan 2019 processed in Suva, Fiji

Great news! Do you have an Australian dependant ( aside your partner) when your visa was refused? Also, if you don’t mind me asking, what was your schedule 3 about?. Because with my situation I think I will have to go through the schedule 3 stage, I just recently submitted my application tho.

Yes, I had my child when it was refused. Schedule 3 was due to not holding a substantive visa at the time

All the best with your application. If you haven't engaged a RMA, I suggest you do so especially one who is familiar with the schedule 3.
Schedule 3 waiver can be a very difficult thing to get

Thanks for the response, I heard the schedule 3 can be difficult but it's a bit less difficult if you've got an Australian dependant. Yes I already engaged a RMA, fingers crossed, hoping for a good news.

I guess I can finally add my name to this list! Submitted yesterday (accepted today following payment), which got me in JUST under my 12 months for my Health Exam. Spending my weekend uploading, and getting the last bits and pieces together.

Hey there,
we have been married 7 years, and lived the last 3 years in Auz, prior to that in NZ.
We mentioned in our covering letter that we would like to be considered for an 801 and the reasons why. Both approvals came through in separate emails but at the same time.
Thank you for the information. That is awesome news and congrats

I have just received the same email and have also just reached the 1 year mark. Sounds like it is generic unfortunately. Wondering whether it is time to apply for and submit my partner's (the Applicant) police clearances and medicals..... everything else is there.

Just noticed today that the 801 processing time has increased again to 20 - 26 months.

I'm wondering if anyone out here with a similar timeline as mine still waiting for theirs? This has been dragging on for too long and today is one of the days that this is really getting to me.....

820 Applied: 07 Aug 2015
820 Granted 07 Dec 2016
801 Applied: 19 Jun 2017
19months since 801 application and counting....

Also, I've supplied the Police Check as the applicant, does my husband also need a police check as the sponsor?

Thanks!

Hi there, was meant to post this in the 801 waiting group but accidentally posted it here. ops..

I've submitted a lot of evidence in 2017, but only some in 2018 in relation to wedding related evidence such as photos, certificate etc... We have quite a few evidence already uploaded such as bills, rental contracts, photos, travel tickets etc but I haven't been submitting them frequently... Do you think that would've helped? What is your timeline like?

My eligibility was march 2017.
You should continue to upload evidence i guess that fills the gap. Would you share what exactly did you provide for social evidence i am not sure how much is enough for this section.
