How long is a piece of string haha who knows how long they will take but if they have made the s52 requests then you should be very close to a decision, maybe a few days. Once we had the police check and health check in, it was less than a week till approval of 820.

Hi guys i have applied for 801/820 in October back in 2019 and then i had CO assigned exactly 12 months after in October 2020. Now few months ago they have requested me to provide them my Police Clearance Certificate from my home country whichever i have already provided and they also requested for medical assessment that i have just done few days ago on 6th of may. Just wondering do you reckon they will issue it now and how long does it takes more after medical assessment as its already been 19 months since i have applied.
Thanks in advance 😇

got the grant after 3 days. I did medical monday then received a grant friday. 😊

Wow that's good stuff, we're a bit over 2 weeks since all the stuff was sent in as far as I know.

Some amazing news at 7.30am this morning. I received my grant for the 820 after what feels like forever (20 months).

After receiving the s56 and supplying what they asked for 3 months ago, it has been an especially frustrating wait. I figured it wouldn't hurt to send some sort of document to maybe ping a notification for the CO I was never explicitly assigned, and it looks like it worked?! I supplied a relationship update yesterday afternoon, and BAM...visa!

My timeline is as follows:
Nationality: Indian
Partner: Australian Citizen

Met my partner: May 2017
Moved in together: April 2019 (De facto starts here)
Application submitted: September 2019 - Front loaded, including police clearances for Aus and abroad (and uploaded when validity expires)
12 month notification - September 2020
Relationship update uploaded - September 2020
s56 RFI/Initial Assessment - For Medicals - February 2021
Status Final Assessment - February 2021
Final nerve-racking wait - February 2021 to May 2021
Supplied one last relationship update doc - 07/05/21
820 Grant - 08/05/21 (Woo!)

Thanks to this forum, you've all been great for many reasons. Will definitely hang around and give pointers wherever I can.
All the best everyone!
