It's increased to 16 - 22 months now :(
This week I saw a post on another forum from a migration agent who said that IMMI had just announced that they had set a deadline to process 70,000 partner visa applications by June 2021.

So, I'm not sure why the processing time has gone up. I tried to google some more information about that announcement, but I could not find anything.

Yes that's right they decided start off this financial year to up the quota to 70k ish. Before it was around 42k. So that's a big improvement. Now they just got to do it quick haha

It seems like they have started off by granting a bunch of 820's, so hopefully, they will be moving onto the 801's very soon!

Processing times might be higher as they are finalising more, with some being older applications. Consequently some of the faster 75% would have been applied for up to 16 months ago, even though others might have taken just a few months.

Her is a link https://www.titanmigration.com.au/news/the-big-changes-to-partner-visas-in-2021

I amconcerned that it might only apply to stage one, (820) of the application? It would be helpful if it was to include the 801 too Fingers crossed for all of us though.

Slightly concerning is the paragraph, "Australian citizen or permanent resident sponsor will need to lodge their sponsorship. This will need to be approved first before their partner can lodge their partner visa application. This will mean that the time taken to lodge a partner visa application will be delayed by the sponsorship process".

I guess that us, whom are awaiting news for 820/801 are sitting better than those who wish to apply and are affected by the changes.

If one wants to continue studying,Is there any acedemic fee changes after getting 820 from student visa or no?

I think it only applies to 820 and 309 visas.

The 2019-20 Migration program showed 37,118 partner visa outcomes, and only counted the subclass 309 and subclass 820.
This is based on the wording used: "Activity includes provisional (first stage) permanent migration applications only"

The 2020-21 Migration program planning level shows 72,300 partner visas from the Family total of 77,300.

Presumably the extra 40,000 will be the 309 and 820s again.

Well played again, JandE.
I always appreciate your valued input.
Have a wonderful weekend.

So it is a bad news for 801 applications right? 😞 it's been increased to 16 months now 😞
Not for all the 801 applicants.
74% of those finalised, during February 2021, were granted the 801 in under 16 months. But 26% of those finalised took 16 months or over.

That figure under 16 months includes 801 grants such as a recent one that was processed in 4 months.

Hi there,
I am just hoping you can please help out with my below queries on 801 visa.

Sponsor statutory declaration

4 - "That our relationship began in ________ and we have lived together for
-------"

1 - Is the relationship date the same as the 820 "Date applicant and sponsor
committed to a shared life together to the exclusion of all others" or the date we actually got married on?

It shows spousal relationship commenced in the side footnote (hard to find a clear definition)

2 - Secondly, we lived together ~9 months prior to committing (date we got engaged and wrote in the 820), so im assuming this date will be used.

Thank you in advance

Definitely the date before you got married, as you say you were living together before that. The date you started living together, in the same way that a married couple might, would be a good date. Some people can justify an earlier date.

We used the date we moved in together, and literally put: That our relationship began in 2014 and we have lived together for 4 years.
At that point we had been married for 2 years.

Requirement states:
4. That our relationship began in [Insert the year your spousal relationship commenced.] and we have lived together for [Insert number of months or years.]
