Hey Guys,
I just got my PR too.

June 2017 applied for 820
May 2018 - 820 grant
July 2019 applied for 801
February 2020 - 801 grant

EU citizen.

I also lodged a complaint on Friday and emailed processing center too. I feel like this is the way to make it happen faster as long as you have submitted all docs including police check. Good luck guys!

Congratulations and thanks for sharing with us.
Please can you tell me what you wrote on the complaint? I mean, in the feedback part.
Thanks
I said not having PR puts on hold my life plans and that I want to study but now I will have to pay full fees but having PR makes it more affordable and that I kindly ask to look into my case as soon as possible.

8am this morning and my grant letter arrived.

Hi everyone

I was a PR from 1996 through 2001 and became an Australian citizen in 2002. I am from the UK.

My partner from the Philippines applied for the 820/802 8/Feb 2018 still waiting.

We have been together since June 2012, began living together June 2014, married in March 2016, we bought a house together in August 2019, Lots of monthly updates provided to Immi, Police and Health Check all completed no issues, joint finances etc etc. We think it may be time to contact the dept using the online complaints form...

What is the link to the form used? There have a couple of links posted but both appear to the broken

Hope someone can help

One option is this: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...-forms/complaints-compliments-and-suggestions

It seems the 820 hasn't been issued yet? So you can't use the Partner (Permanent) Processing Centres Enquiry Form
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/hel...ner-permanent-processing-centres-enquiry-form

Visas for Philippine Citizens are taking a longer time than normal these days.

Good luck.

All we see is the processing times ballooning out from what the 2018 numbers of

820 75% within 20months and 90% within 24months
to
820 75% within 24months and 90% within 31months

May be the Dept is waiting for our 4 year wedding anniversary in March 2020.

But in those 75% under 20 or 24 months, you get these 820 grant examples, from Sept/Oct 2018 applications.
Sept 2019 820 Finalised after 11.2 months, from Philippines
Oct 2019 820 Finalised after 14.8 months, from Philippines

Could be worth sending an enquiry, or a request to check, due to your long relationship and the fact that others have been granted faster.

We applied June 2019 and haven't heard anything... and from a low risk country. We're hoping it's soon (fingers crossed)

Same here. Applied in June 2019 and status has been further assessment ever since. No contact at all so far. Also from low risk country.

Hi all,

I am one of the many May 2019 folks who has received an 801 grant recently. My partner and I were in a de facto relationship when we applied for the 820, and married when we applied for the 801. We're a same-sex couple and I'm from the United States.

My timeline was:

May 17, 2017: apply for the 820 visa
April 2018: more information requested and given
August 28, 2018: 820 visa grant
May 17, 2019: apply for the 801 visa
Feb 22, 2020: 801 visa grant

We didn't receive any contact from a CO before the 801 grant.

I hope this is helpful and that those with similar application dates hear back from immigration soon.

Hi guys!
Here is my timeline
applied for 309 in October 2016
granted 309 February 2017
Applied for 100/801 in October 2018
Contacted department in October 2019 - was asked to send further information. (most of which was already there like police checks and statuary declarations by witnesses)
attached further information.
application went from "received" to "further assessment"

Still waiting for the grant :(

It's been 16 months now.
New time frame estimates on Immi says 17 months to 31 months.

In my case we bought a house under my husband's name only, It's our first home, and we saved on stamp duty.
We are ready to buy our second home and we wanted to do it under my name, to save on stamp duty again, but no broker wants to do our loan application even though we have 20% saved, because I am still on a temporary visa.
