Partner Visa 820/801 requirements

Hi All,

This is my first time on this forum here and by the looks of it, I'm very confident that you'll have some great answers for me.

Earlier this year, I got married to my lovely wife, lodged the combined partner application (820/801) and was granted the temporary Partner Visa (820) after only about a week (!). According to the visa requirements, me and my partner have to prove that we're still in a genuine and ongoing relationship after two years of lodgement of the initial application.

I was wondering, what the immigration department needs in order to make this decision? Also, it has been said that home visits may be conducted - after how long can we expect such visits?

I'd be happy if you could get me any information on this topic.

Thanks,
Danny

I'm not sure about home visits but your evidence is pretty much the same stuff you supplied for the temp visa. They just want to see that you are still in the relationship and it will continue to be ongoing. I suggest you keep everything from now on like evidence of travel together, joint bank accounts, leases in both names, photos from social events and family gatherings. When they request the additional information you can get stay decs from from friends and family confirming your relationship.

Seeing as you got your temp visa amazing fast can I ask a couple of questions??

How long were you with your partner before getting married?

Where did you lodge your application?

What country did the applicant come from?

These answers would be helpful for those of us that have been told we have to wait 9-12 months for our visas to be granted.

Thanks

To answer your question. We got married mid February, and sent off the application mid May. I've previously been to the Immigration Department to get an estimate on how long it would take and been told that it could take anywhere from 6 to 10 months; there were however cases where applications have been approved within a few days when they were complete (every single thing listed on the check-list).

I was very skeptical, but took the advice to follow the check list 100%. Furthermore, I've attached some other documents, which I still had from my application for a skilled visa, (I had my application pretty much ready, only to find out that my job wasn't on the jobs on demand list) which included IELTS test results, copies of studies I've completed in Australia, etc.

I'm not sure whether this actually made a difference, the only thing I know is, that it got processed within a week. Which I thought was quite amazing.

The only other question I've got - I've heard there might be some interviews, if that's the case, what would we have to expect?

Once again, thanks for your answers!

Hi RooGee,
did you send your application by post or did you apply in person? Where did you apply?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

Here in Sydney you can't drop off the application in person anymore. I booked a courier service to deliver it to the processing office.
