Hi everyone,

My original partner visa was granted after 11 months (the 820). I have a couple questions and was hoping someone could shed some light:

1. How many months from when you're granted temporary residence do you have to wait before applying for permanent residency (visa 801)

2. How long is the general processing time from lodgement of 801 to grant?

3. What are the rules about being in the country during this processing time? I remember we had to get exit visas and all sorts of things when I was on the bridging visa waiting to get my temporary residency? Do I have to be in the country from when I lodge for 801 to when its granted?

4. Is there a cost to lodge the 801?

Thanks in advance.

They have a huge backlog at the moment so maybe by the time you are eligible it may have cleared. Some people have been waiting more than 10 months for their 801.
