820 Visa granted, now what?

We are so happy because my wife has been granted for the Partner Visa 820 last week. Applied on 10 Jan 2015 and got granted 1 June, so that's like 1 1/2 year wait which is all over

I know after 2 years i.e. 10 Jan 2017 will automatically go for 809 and there's 2 questions I would like to ask and is a bit confused

1) My wife wants to travel overseas so does that mean she can now travel anytime anywhere without the bridging visa anymore?

2) What does it mean between now and 10 Jan 2017 waiting period, anything she can do?

3) On 10 Jan 2017, does she need to apply the new PR form or something?

4) And finally, from 10 Jan 2017, if she wants to work in overseas, what is the minimum she needs to stay here for the eligibility of PR? I heard she needs to stay between 2 years out of 5 years, correct me if I am wrong

Your answer and help would be appreciated

1/ Yes

2/ collect evidence

3/ she will get an email approximately 2 months prior to eligibility to submit docs etc for 801

4/ the PR won't be granted on her eligibility date unless she is extremely lucky. The PR doesn't have a minimum time but to get a resident return visa if you are overseas or want to travel overseas after 5 years then you need to meet the requirements which is usually 2 years in the last 5. The travel rights expire but the PR does not.

From 820 to 801 is not 'automatic'. You need to fill in forms and provide all the supporting documents, quite similar to applying for a 820. So, make sure you still collecting evidences until you get 801 (PR).

To OP mike88.

I originally emigrated out to Australia on a PMV in 2013. After getting married in the April of 2014 I submitted all the necessary forms and paperwork on May 27th for my TR partner visa (820). It was subsequently granted 17 days later on June 13th.

I have just submitted my PR partner visa (801) application online along with additional evidence and a AFP check on the 27th May this year, but as yet I have had no acknowledgement from DIBP as to what is going on.

1) Your wife is definitely allowed to travel overseas as she is on a TR (partner) visa 820, not bridging anymore. I left the country for a holiday last year and had absolutely no issues on departure or return to Australia.

2) As Mish and GBP have said, make sure over the next two years you both collect evidence to prove your continuing relationship. For me I included wedding and social engagement invites, bills in both our names, mortgage statements in both our names, wills, travel itineraries, etc, etc.

3) In the months leading up to Jan 2017, especially before Christmas make sure she has created an online ImmiAccount login (if not done so already) and start filling in the application form online for the Stage 2 partner visa. Once Jan 10th comes you can click submit and sit back waiting like I am right now

4) I'm unsure on this point, the others may have correct information.

Kind regards, Matt
