Wow congrats Catlady!! I am also Singapore Citizen and my Husband is Australian Citizen. We are legally married and our traditional wedding will be end August. I am planning to apply for the partner visa onshore in Australia in Sept 2019. What visa should I be on prior to applying for the 820-801 Partner visa? I will be moving from Singapore to Australia and have been reading how I should not be on tourist visa etc. Any feedback on this would be much appreciated. Thanks a ton😊🙏🏻

Thanks! Any chance that I have the visa granted during one of my entries into Australia?. Do you think is a good idea to update my address every time I Enter de country? Or more likely than they wait until my BVB expires to grant the 820? It’s a 7 months length BVB, already upload medical assessment and police checks. Appreciate your help.

You can provide it when you get back ..

The sooner the better. I reckon book a date for your medicals as the date of the medical varies depending which state you are in.

Hi everyone,

Quick question: my partner and I have been together for 6 years of which 2.5 years was in Australia. Since Jan 2017 we've been living together in Australia and applied for partner visa Oct 2017. We're in 23rd month but had 0 communication from immigration. No requests at all. Our agent uploads stuff regularly with medicals and police checks and proofs; but there has been no response. Is this a good thing?

The 3 subclass 820 visa applications that I have seen applied for in Oct 2017 were all granted in 2018, March, September and December. Between 4.5 and 14.1 months processing time.

I saw another, applied for in June 2017 and granted in May 2019. That one is similar to yours, in time frame, so far.

However, I would have thought that being together for 6 years would be faster. What country is the applicant from?

Thank you so much for this.
We are both from Turkey; same sex couple here. It seemed strange with no communication and we were starting to get worried. He's on BVE currently and can't travel outside AU.

I applied in December 2017 and have heard very little from immigration also. Just requests for medical and police check. Not sure what is going on. I am from Ireland and my partner is Australian. We have been together for 4 years, lived together since January 2017.

Hi Everyone,

We just submitted and paid for our PMV 820 application and we are now on the process of submitting documents and evidences, my question is do they have time limit for this?

Thanks for your answers.

There is no time limit.
If you have all the documents upload them as this will be in your favour.

Hi all,

My wife will be coming to Australia on a visitor visa (600) soon and we are planning to apply for 820. Can someone please answer to my following questions?

1) Does she need to have her own immi account and apply for it herself? if yes, does she need to select the "Stage 1 - Partner or prospective Marriage visa (300, 309/100, 820, 801)" under the "Family" new application and proceed?

2) On immi account, when starting a new application, I also see an option under Family "Sponsorship for a partner to Migrate to Australia (300, 309/100, 820, 801)". Does that mean I also need to do something on my part? If yes, what is this process and when do I need to do it?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Yeah we pretty much sent everything required when we lodged the application in 2017. I have more up to date evidence gathered If they request it. We are using an immigration agent and she has looked over everyyhing and thinks we have a good solid case. I got the request for police checks about 6 months ago, and got the request for my medical just over a week ago. I have booked my medical for next week.
