Hi all,

We applied for our 820 in June 2019 and was granted in May 2020. We've just received the email that we can begin uploading documents for our 801 application. How do we go about this? We begin the application but hit a wall at the "Has it been 24 months since you applied for the 820 visa?" question because we select "no" (as its only been 23) and it tells us to come back later. Are we meant to select yes even though it hasn't been 24 months?
I think everyone just says yes, on the basis that by the time immigration look at it, it will be 24 months. I feel they won't look at it until the 24 months is up.

Pity they don't explain it though.

Just wanna share our experience:

Feb 2019 - Arrived in Australia
May 2019 - Got married to the love of my life. Same Sex marriage.
May 14, 2019 - applied onshore partner visa 820/801
Dec 2019 - Notified to do medical and submitted same month.
Jan 2021 - yes, 20 months after received email to updated AFP and foreign police checks and renewed passport(mine got expired).
June 8 2021 - Submitted new passport. Due to covid took a long time to travel interstate to renew my passport.
June 14, 2021 - Received DUAL grants 820/801. I was surprised because we didn’t even upload new photos or whatsoever nor started the 801 application. Only uploaded new lease agreement.

Our was processed in Ho Chih Min, Vietnam. Finally have PR now. Did everything my own no agent. Our hardwork finally paid off. All I can say, If your relationship is genuine you have nothing to worry about but don’t be too relax still do your own research and comply to all requirements. Thank you to this forum and people sharing their experiences and knowledge.
