Missngel that fact sheet doesnt say that they will personally "accept" your application just that u may "lodge" it in person, which could mean.... Stick it in the box next to the counter..... As seems to be the case in perth :-(

Exactly my point. I would have been happy to just stick the application in the box and leave but the mean lady was standing in front of the box waving her hand around saying no we dont accept applications in person thinking i was stupid and that i couldnt actually see the box but there was just no way around her so i just gave up and posted it.

Hi everyone,
I posted my 820 application to the Sydney processing centre via express post on Monday. The payment is not processed yet and I haven't heard anything from them. Do you know how long it takes for the processing centre to confirm that they received the application?

Thanks.

Hi Ece,
I paid with a credit card and after like 5 days it came up as a pending payment on my account but they had taken the money out the next day so my bank was late in showing it. And also i waited 2 weeks for the letter to arrive but it didnt so i called them up and they said that they sent an email to the applicant (my partner) on the 3rd day! My partner didnt even notice it so i was stressing for 2 weeks for nothing!
Did you send it Monday as in 2 days ago?

Oh how mean of her!!! We didnt get any email correspondence, only by mail. BUT we were approved really fast and so have some others i know so maybe youll get lucky. Did you apply with all your medicals and police checks done?

Yes, our application was handed in as 'Decision Ready' with medicals, police checks and form 80 sent in too. We have been together for 8 years so i am hoping we will be one of the lucky few who get approved quickly!! I have been checking the timeline but there doesnt seem to be much movement from the Sydney Office :-(

Sorry to hijack a thread but I thought it might be relevant and best to keep it under one thread...

Does anybody know if this is happening to other processing centres across Australia?

Personally I'm planning to hand mine in on 27th Dec to the Melbourne office. I'm cutting it fine giving myself only 2 working days until the price hike to 4k. I've had some bad experiences with Auspost so I dont really trust it! If they're not accepting applications I can save myself a 2.5h round-trip.

Hello Rofnac25,
Honestly i wouldnt risk it. Especially if you are leaving it days before the increase and you have to travel. I would just send it express and make sure you make a copy of your application for you to keep just incase anything happens.

Just to inform those on-shore who were thinking off lodging their application in-person.

Immi has now removed the statement saying you can lodge "in-person" off their website and now state that you can either use Post or Courier to sumbit your application.

Thanks for the update, rofnac25!

Just thinking aloud.. I am planning to post my application in using AusPost's Express Post service.. So which address of "Partner (Temporary) Processing Centre - Western Australia" should I use?

Street address:
Ground floor
Wellington Central
836 Wellington Street
West Perth WA 6005

OR

Postal address:
Locked Bag 7
Northbridge WA 6865

Especially since I may be choosing a signature on delivery feature on my application? Postal address sounds to me like a PO box, where no one is manning it.. But I am after all sending my application by post, so it also feels like I should be using the postal address..

Any ideas???
