Hi there,

Happy New Year 2019, I know it has been a lot of thread about PV 820 waiting Subject. I wonder if anyone who applied the PV 820/801 onshore during year 2018 process waiting list to update.

Let me start :

Lodged PV 820/801 : 10 Aug 2018
Acknowledgement received : 10 Aug 2018
Medical Result Finalised : 17 Oct 2018
BVA active with unlimited work/study and still waiting for CO Assign

Finger crossed 😁

Hi Blythium,

I spoke to immi today. Asked about CO not being assigned however I had lodged in Feb 2018, and Med checks were done late in April last year.
She told me the expected processing time for 820 is 21 - 26 months, so I should not worry that no CO has been assigned yet.

The expected processing time has been revised only on 19 Dec last year, guess we have a long wait.

Good Luck!!

Hi Blythium
My wife applied for 820/801 onshore on 6 August 2018. So we are likely on a very similar timeframe for our wait!
She has a tourist visa (600) which is valid until 2020 - so i assume that means her BVA will only be active from then. Good luck with the process, and we'd be happy to share information as the process progresses.

We are not far ahead then. Thank you for sharing cause it'll give us a hope to find out the progress.
The BVA will active by the time her visitor 600 visa expired or the substantive visa expired. Example she stayed in Australia for 3 months or more, her BVA already in effect after 3 months She live in Australia . She can work and study even applied a Medicare card by the time she applied the 820/801. I'm waiting on my TFN 😊🤞

Hi All,
I lodged my partner visa on 22nd August 2018, so far no any communication.
I plan to attach few more evidence of our relationship for the three months after lodging e.g family Chris-mass photos, our holiday in November, current joint account statement, and keep updating quarterly until I get CO attached. Hope this is a good idea.
Wish all the best as we wait.

I have a question some of you guys might be able to help with.

My partner and I have applied for her 820 visa onshore. She is currently on a tourist visa and entered Australia on December 15th. So will her bridging visa will start on March 15th? (since that will be 3 months in the country).

The visitor visa says it's valid until September 2019, although she can only stay in Aus for 3 months at a time. It doesn't say that it expires after 3 months, just that she has to leave. Which is where my confusion comes from.

Thanks.

If she arrived Dec 15th in Australia on tourist visa and it said the expired date March 15th, as long she stay in Australia more than 3 months meaning her BVA will come into effect on March 16th. She is eligible for apply interim Medicare card but the TFN only available after March 15th

820 Partner visa

Hi Guys

I logged my visa 820, 24th Feb 2018 onshore and haven't heard back from them since then.
I have got 3 bridging B visas to travel.
I was wondering if anyone got email requested to do the medical assessment?
I havent got any email regarding doing that.
Do I need to just go and do it myself or I need to be told to do it?

The medical assessment requirement in your immiaccount. It's said health assessment and you have to make an appointment for it, I think cost around $340

Hello all,
My partner and I recently wanted to apply for 820/801 visa and would like to know what do we expect after lodging an application? Should we be expecting calls for interviewing or questioning or should i be informing my form 888 witnesses that they would expect a call as well etc?

Thanks very much!

Hi everyone,

I applied for the 820/801 on 19 December 2018, and unsurprisingly have yet to hear anything from Home Affairs (except for an automated message on Immi that I need to submit my health assessment-- but I'm going to wait if the processing time is actually 21-26mo, I don't want to do it twice).

While I'm waiting, should I be updating our application with new evidence that the relationship is ongoing (e.g. recent photos, travel, etc)??

Thanks in advance!
Brooke

Yes, you probably should update frequently, especially as many 820 grants are done in under 16 months recently. The easiest ones may be processed faster than others.

Only about 15% of grants take between 21 and 26 months.
75% are taking under 21 months at the moment.

Hello Everyone,
I am gonna apply this Visa in June
I have applied for police checked, standard Marriage cerfiticate already.
I have a few questions, I think some of you have done this already. So maybe I can have the answers.
1. standard Marriage cerfiticate, I have applied and paid already. I recived an email to confirm they received my application. So do I have to go there to show my ID or I just need to wait till the certificate ready to collect?
2. Only I or it has to be both me and my husband to go there to collect standard Marriage cerfiticate?
3. Where did you guys do Health checks?
4. Can I submit for Visa 820 before I recived my standard Marriage cerfiticate, and upload standard Marriage cerfiticate later once I have it? Or I have to wait till standard Marriage cerfiticate arrivel?
Regarding translation. do you know any authorithy people charge good price to translate for some non-English papers work?
