I think this would also be your case.. If you've applied in person to the immigration office, you should be given an acknowledgement letter along with your receipt. However, if you've applied by post, you should wait for it to arrive for 2 weeks or so..

To answer your question though, the guy from the immigration office told me that it would take 12 months max.
Thanks Xeelah ! You're right I checked the Immig. email again and I have read all the attached files and found out that they gave me the same thing as you got a bridging visa A and told me processing may take 9 to 12 months. So bridging visa is the temporary visa before we get our permanent residence? I hope thats the case LOL fingers crossed as I have 2 trips outside Australia this year.... Well thanks a lot and good luck, I hope we hear from them soon!!!!

The problem is that I thought all the hard work was behind us but when I rang immigration I was told that now we need to apply for a Partner Visa: Subclasses 820 pay $965 and provide them with all the document's ie wage slips, police checks, stat decs, health checks ect that we have already submitted when obtaining the fiance' visa.
Have I been given the wrong information or is it part of the process to submit the same information twice?
First i wanna say congrats...
where is your gf from?what subclass of fiance u were applied on the first?where do u lodge the papers offshore(outside australia) or onshore(inside australia)?

Hi jdm,
Bridging visa A is not the Temporary partner visa. Its a visa that gives you the same right as your current visa. It will remain valid until they made a decision regarding your spouse visa. If granted Temp. Partner visa, they will assess you again after 2 years for permanent one. They can give you a permanent without the waiting period if your in a relationship with your partner for 3 years.

Cheers,

Thanks much Xeelah! I am not sure if you got my first reply. Anyway I have read the email from Immigration again and found out I got a bridging visa too. hahaha They issued it the day they received my application cos I had lodged it tru mail. I think nothing much different lodging tru mail or in person. They have done quite fast because the day after I sent my mail they acknowledged my application. Thanks much again....

Cheers,
jdm

Hello! I just want to add though that bridging visa A is only valid to stay lawfully in Australia while waiting for a decision for your visa application. If you plan to travel outside Australia while the bridging visa A is in effect, you should go to an immigration office to have them grant you a bridging visa B which will enable you to travel overseas while waiting for a decision. The guy in the immigration told me that if I plan to travel outside of Australia, that I should go to their office 2 weeks before the scheduled travel to arrange a bridging visa B.

Please take note of this information as going out of the country while you're in a bridging visa A would prevent you from entering Australia again and would nullify the grant of your spousal visa assuming you were granted the visa while overseas.

Yes. You have to submit those checks otherwise they can't process the application.

As for receipts, they must show some evidence of being for the houswhold or relationship so only submit them if they are necessary and can't be shown on a bank statement or something similar.

Hang on!

'dianmarie007', currently has a PMV subclass 300. Medicals checks do not apply as He/She has already submitted those.

As per the 820-801-checklist.pdf:

Quote:
If you hold a Prospective Marriage (subclass 300) visa, you are not required to undergo medical examinations unless you are asked to do so.
As for the police checks...Not sure. You might need to get this clarified from immi. I've read on here that, like with the medicals, holders of the subclass 300 do not need to be submit this again...
