Hi everyone, I keep coming back to this forum hoping there is an update.
Anyone got processed 801 recenlty?
It is been 7 months for me since submission and apart from a General Purpose Advice letter in August (a reminder, if I did not apply yet, I should...) nothing happened.
Any experience of progress lately?
Thank you for sharing.
Hey, it’s been 6 months for me and no updates neither. I also noticed on the Facebook groups that a very low amount of people are getting their 801 approved at the moment.

They seem to be focusing on the 820 from what I see. Also last year, they did grant heaps of 801 in December/Jan, hopefully it’s going to happen again this year.

Applied for 801 in November last year, no updates as of yet.
The median average processing time, in the last reported grants, was 12 months after eligibility, which means 36 months after applying for the 820.

However, some took under 8 months and some took over 27 months.

My current partner visa timeline.

Applied for 820- Jan. 2020
Recieved 820 - Mar. 2021
Applied 801- Jan. 2022
Still waiting (further assessment)... Nov 2022

I have been uploading update docs every 6 months, which have photos and leases/bank statements etc. A few friends applied for their 801 only a few months before me and were approved back in April. Hopefully some day soon!

My timeline is very similar to yours. Got 820 in April 2021 and applied for 801 in November 2021(one month before the date of eligibility). Still waiting too... further assessment.

Thanks for sharing your timelines, the worst part for me is not knowing if I am the rule or the exception.

My timeline:
Applied for 820 April 2020
Granted 820 August 2021
Applied for 801 April 2022
Further assessment ever since. Uploading things every month or two, we are together more than 5.5 years.

Have a close friend, she was eligible and applied for 801 in December 2021, got grant in Jan 2022. And I got my hopes up :(

Wishing you all patience.

I know exactly how you feel. I have been waiting since July 2021 when I submitted my 801. Its so hard to be patient when other people who applied after you get theirs granted before you. Its disheartening. But hopefully we will get there in the end!!

820 processing time was updated over the weekend to 18/11/2022 whereas 801 processing time was still back in August. Not many processed so not enough data… fingers crossed they can start to ‘bulk assess them like these oversea applications’ prior to Christmas
