It’s very unfair. I’ve been waiting 12 weeks today for my 801. Seeing two 801 grants on Facebook this morning gave me some hope, both granted in 3 months.

Hoping that yours come soon for you. It really seems to be dragging on and is sometimes very concerning.

My situation is that we started dating in 2013, applied 820/801 Sept 2018, granted 820 June 2020, applied for 801 August 2020, and yes we are still waiting for the 801 to be granted 7 months later. We have been married for 5 years now.

Wishing you well and try not to stress too much. I go for cycle rides along the river when this waiting gets me down.

I think like the 820’s it really depends on when you apply. The applications that were lodged in 2018 seemed to process very slow.

now the 801’s lodged in 2021 seem to beprocessed fast.

I don’t think I’ll ever understand the process.

Yes it did start then. We spent almost a year together in Australia, then I returned to UK in 2014. We visited each others home and holidayed together abroad twice, each time for 3 months. It is just a case of waiting. Patience is a virtue, they say. :)

There have been a few like you, who have reminded Immigration about their long relationship, and had the 801 PR granted a few days later.
It is worth a request to them. But don't use the word dating. They appear not to class dating as a serious relationship.

Thanks again J&E.
I did actually write to them late last year to explain that not yet having my PR was a hindrance when applying for some employment. I get ever so slightly concerned that our ages, (58 & 71) might count against us?
