Partner 820 and 801 health checks

Hi, everyone!

My partner and I lodged our Partner 820 visa application several days ago and was granted a bridging visa.

We are still in the process of uploading all the documents, etc.

There is one part that confuses me, as while we are applying for 820, the medical referral letter indicates that it is for the 801.

Is that because the application for 820 and 801 is simultaneous?

Although we have been in a relationship for more than 3 years. I have my misgiving of doing the health checks now as it is for the 801, which means visa processing waiting period and possibly imposed 801 eligibility wait?

Will I be notified if they are directly processing the 801?

I hope i can get some clarification on this forum. Thank you everyone!

Technically, you lodge your applications for 820 and 801 simultaneously, but you will need to re-supply evidence when you become eligible for your 801 to be assessed (two years after you originally applied for your 820).

As medicals are only valid for 12 months and most 820 applications take longer than that to process, many people are now waiting until a case officer requests it to do their medical.

According to what I've read, there were also instances where some applicants with more than 3 years relationship (I assume) that submit it right away with their 820 application, and it sped up the application significantly!

I guess it's just a risk that I'll have to endure myself

From what I've read in the past, having medicals done at the time of application doesn't make much difference to the speed of a decision these days.

I think your fact around 3-year relationship may be based on the fact that couples who have been married or in defacto relationships for 3 years when they apply for their 820/801 sometimes jump right past the 820 stage and are granted 801s.
