Granted!!!

I put in a request as Topper suggested. I was super polite, explained the situation that our case was straight forward. Woke up today to the grant!! Thanks Topper!!

820 - Granted June 2020
801 - Applied for Feb 2021
801 - Granted 70 days later
Hi
Could I please ask what we’re the reason for the form you submitted ?
We started our relationship in 2015 but only put de facto as 2017 as we were traveling around and not always being together. (He was going around Europe a lot). Got my 820 granted June 2020 and applied 801 Jan 2021 and wonder what I can say to them to fast forward my process.
Any advise from anyone would be much appreciated !

You can start filling it out. There will be a question that asks if it has been 24 months since you lodged the 820. If you say yes it will let you proceed. You can then fill everything out and then submit when the time comes. After you submit you can upload the documents.
Hi thanks i found this group. I wonder why I have not receive Any response to my application. As i look at this group everyone attached supporting ducuments and I did not because i thought I will have to wait for the reply from the immigration if they will ask since we provided everything on our 820 and It got granted.

Have you at least done the Sponsors declaration?
They may just be waiting for you to upload what is needed.

I saw one a couple of years ago, who waited about a year to be asked for everything they needed, and granted it immediately after they supplied everything.

Has anyone had to get a 2nd health exam because they’ve been waiting 12 months since being granted the 820?

I had the same thought as we're also in a same-sex relationship. But yeah I think we're overthinking it.

@milchmehr the ID is on the 820 grant letter and the number is at the top of your application in IMMI next to: "Partner visa application - information for permanent stage processing Reference Number:XXXXXXXX"

To think people who applied in 2020 are getting processed over us who applied in late 2017 is beyond infuriating. Trying to remain positive but this all feels very unfair. Hopefully, this gets sorted shortly and we all hear back with positive news pronto.
Hey Simonca, have you sent "suggestions" to the immi yet?
Also, I wanted to double-check if the client ID is the same as the application ID?

haha @Topper yes I didn't think so ;) We got our relationship registered in 2017 before same sex marriage was legal here too.

@ngrg my understanding is that if you submit it as a 'suggestion' or 'compliment' instead of a 'complaint' then the Department usually will not issue a formal response (Referring to the text that comes up when you select those options on the form) but maybe it doesn't matter. I submitted it on Saturday as a follow up to the enquiry submitted a month ago through the Processing Centre Enquiry Form which didn't get a reply. I was polite and succinct, mentioning we didn't get a reply to our previous enquiry and that we had provided everything needed upfront. I got a standard feedback acknowledgment email back today. Will give an update if I hear anything further. Hope everyone is having a great start to their week :)

Can I please ask everyone how long it took to get their grant after putting in the complaint form request?
Also @gkaur we received the same standard response as @anashin on Monday even though we sent it as the applicant (Although we both signed our names as we wrote it together) but still no grant or other feedback since. Fingers crossed it finally comes today. Hope everyone is having a good week!

I sent the feedback as the applicant under suggestions today. I didn't receive any response, not even the standard one. I hope you will get yours soon!

Hi everyone, we are experiencing something unusual with our application. We applied for 820 back in June 2018 through our lawyer. We attached a lot of evidence and didn’t hear back at all. In mid 2020 we uploaded more updated information. In Nov 2020 our lawyer asked them for an update, they replied in Dec 2020 requesting heath examination.my partner did this and again we didn’t hear back anything till now and they sent s56 saying my partner owed money to government and we settled this straightaway and sent them proof of payment. Now it has been 35 months since our application. Is receiving s56 request for more info a good sign? Did many people receive positive ourcomes after this request.
We are so confused how people who applied in 2019 already got granted but we have not heard anything! We are in a genuine relationship with alot of proof so how can we not hear from the immigration for 35 months?!? This is really worrying both me and my partner.
