Awh man, I was considering doing that and then I started worrying "maybe they'll think I tried to cross it out or something!" I'm not neurotic at all.

It says what I applied for, when I applied for it, application ID and file number and all the personal data for the applicant (including passport number) as well as the basic details of the sponsor.

I am so confused by what they send who
Hi,

yes I didn't get a VEVO password, I had to call Immigration, confirm some details like dob, passport number etc. and got a password. Unfortunately, it doesn't work and I can't reach Immi now til Tuesday.

Weird, you got something completely different from them than I did! All I got was the Acknowledgement letter, stating my application was valid and that I got a Bridging Visa A granted and things that I should send in if I haven't already done so. No passport number in it!
The other 2 documents they sent me was the invoice for the application charge and something called "820 Road Map" with general info about the Visa, how long it will gonna take to approve it, and whom to call for infos.

Ah well... I'll call them Tuesday and find out what went wrong. But why would they send different things to different people? That is so inefficient

I just found something on the Immi Website that might explain my difficulties...

"This information is for German citizens checking the progress of their online visa application.

German applicants may experience issues checking the progress of their online application through the department's query application status facility. To access this facility, you must enter the 10 digit number shown in the machine readable zone on the bottom left hand side of the personal information page of your passport. This facility will not accept nine digit passport numbers."

oO What? Why? Seriously? I mean, did you just decide that? 'Germans have 9 digit passport numbers? Hahaha, I don't think we'll let that count.'
Someone in this organisation has the most awesome job of making up random useless regulations.

Naww silly DIAC! I called them as soon as they opened and they confirmed all information there is about me on God's green earth (I like that, it feels very safe actually) and then confirmed that their system does say "0" (zero) and not O.

The man I had on the phone was very helpful and double checked and compared several times, and confirmed that the system definitely has the passport number with a zero, not an O. So basically that "mistake" is only on my Visa Application Summary, not in their systems. Phew.

I also got my VEVO password finally and I have to say VEVO is already freaking me out. At first it looked like a random row of info which I wasn't sure referred to what and why and how. My VEVO is still set to my Working Holiday Visa, which makes sense as the WHV only expires on Thursday 31 January so after that I presume it will say "Bridging Visa A" or something. It just freaked me out for a second, I was like THIS SHOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE $4000+ I JUST SPENT ON SOMETHING ELSE but it only shows the current visa in effect, right?

Yes don't panic, mine was on WHV until my 820 was granted and the BVA only kicks in when your old visa expires

Mine showed up on there before they sent out my letter, I didn't actually get an email. It was very exciting, I hope yours doesn't take too long

Meh, they're waiting for my Form 80 so I'm pretty sure by not sending it along right away I've already cast myself onto the "take your time" pile as it wasn't decision ready after all - last checklist I printed (a week or so before applying) Form 80 was only on request, but within a matter of days around my actual applying it had turned into "MUST ADD FORM 80"... which made my application not decision ready.

I'm counting on about 13 months. After that I'm pretty sure I'll be having conversations with the mailbox and sleeping on the laptop!
