Hi All,
Long time lurker, first time posting.

We just received 801 grant today!!! Hurray!! We were so eagerly waiting for this day and it's finally here.
My timeline:
The relationship started: Late 2016 (2years dating - not defacto and 2+ years married)
820/801 Application submitted: February 2019
820 granted: June 2020
801 application submitted: February 2021


On 8 June 2021, I submitted an enquiry via the immi website Partner (Permanent) Processing Centres Enquiry Form, received the standard automatic response email including the option to request priority processing.
Request for priority processing submitted to [email protected] on 22 June 2021. Reasons cited were my relationship for 4+ years , buy a new home and seeking to want to work with the federal government.
Never received a response to this, but 801 granted: 9 July 2021 !!
Not sure if this is a coincidence or application was processed due to my email.

We didn't use a lawyer, but submitted every single document we could - sponsor stat dec, 2 x 888 form, photos from our holidays, records of joint travel etc.

Please let me know if there are any questions...

Hello everyone
I do not post as I had nothing and know nothing about partner visa .Now I can talk about my application .My wife and I have been together for 11 years in Thailand .I am an Australian and lived in Melbourne (the greatest city in the world ..hehe) before coming to Thailand .We got a Lawyer in Sydney to do all our paperwork cost was very reasonable less than $3000 .On Friday 9/07/ 2021 he summited our application .On the 11/07/2021, he send an email to me telling us the application has started and needed some new pictures as we had to wait 6 months to pay the fee as I needed 3 operastions to pay for. He said he never seen this quick response before.The Australian immigration sent all the forms to us and where to go to get health checks .The topic we cannot understand they want my wife's children to get police checks and health checks as well. We are NOT taking them to Australia. Is this normal? We will have to pay for the police reports and health checks done at a authorized hospital in Bangkok (long way from their home )I , we cannot understand this .
Can anyone help ...
So now I can help others in the coming months and will upgreade our application when we hear .The lawyer is saying it might be done it 6 months!!!
Thanks Everyone

The 801 medical is done during the original 820 application. The 2nd stage 801, does not require another.
