Well stay away from those north Korean ladyboys (by the way safe choice of country to make fun off)
Though back to the original intent of the thread, getting a visa takes time and there is no way to fast track it. The embassy operates independently and your visas will be processed in due time. You can not judge when your visa will be approved/disapproved and you just need to live your life to the fullest under the circumstances. Do not make decisions or plans based on the approval of a visa or you will be disappointed

The impression I got from the manager of the partner visa processing centre is that the processing time will be a couple of weeks (which is consistent with a number of posts I found in this forum announcing the grant of a visa in some weeks rather than months).
Interesting info, this is actually in line with my experience.

I had been quoted 12-14 months as the current processing times when I lodged my onshore application recently.

Now I do realise I'm most likely the exception here, but my application ended up being approved in just a week. I also received my PR (subclass 801) straight away.

I am so happy and I feel incredibly blessed. Having that said, each case is clearly different, making it quite hard to compare time lines.

I have spent nearly a decade living and working in Australia with my husband, and I have been collecting evidence towards this visa for many, many years. It has been a long and thorough process, and at the end of it I don't believe there was much else I could've possibly provided in terms of evidence.

I fully understand the agony some of you must be going through though. Trust me, I do. (A few years back I was on a BVA for 18 months between two visas, so I am highly familiar with the stress and uncertainty involved.) I am just so happy that our efforts through the years finally paid off, and that we can now put this behind us.

Best of luck to all of you.

CONGRATULATIONS, yes you are the exception but thankyou for pointing that out . I would be shocked if a 10 year relationship was refused. I wish you well and hope that you and your partner take the time to make a special event of your success

Hey MarcusAurelius, as a fellow 2012 Sydney applicant I'd like to let you know that our 820 has just been granted. We had been waiting for 13 months. Have you been granted your visa yet?
All the best!

Quick back to "those of you who still think you'll get approved in days"...

I had a moment of weakness and decided to look up how everyone else who's applied for an 820 in 2013 has been doing - we applied onshore de facto in January 2013.



It does start to feel like we're falling behind... should I start packing?

You mean packing because you're afraid your visa might not be granted??

You're stressing too much, I remember seeing your posts regularly and you've sent in a good application.

Seeing all these "approved" posts here on forum does make you wonder "what if"; the more time passes by, the more in doubts one is...

Luckily, I was following this forum all the time and I've noticed there were/are many fellow applicants who have also been waiting onshore for a year or more, and knowing that made us stay put and patient... ... Although, my hubby (he was the applicant) was getting worried (despite all the evidence); it's normal to get worried and stressed... What if a case officer had a quarrel with her/his partner that exact day when it's your turn and decides to get some revenge?!?!

I still can't believe I've dedicated almost two years of my life to this "project" and the forum, with the visa now being granted, it feels like we're getting our life back.



Be patient and don't worry... unless you've realised there's a vital document missing, then it might be good to send it in. But otherwise, just be patient, cause you did your best and you're nothing but a number to them anyway...

All the best!

Thank you the only thing I'm really worried about is two areas - in the Netherlands there's no such thing as a "statutory declaration" like in Australia - if you sign it, it's official, period. So I'm afraid they won't regard our Dutch family and friends' declarations as valid - in that case I'd hope they'd give us a chance to ask them again and get notaries involved.

The other "issue" is the biggest one, which is that my Aussie partner has been unemployed for quite some time - but I have been employed, am doing very well (with a stat dec from my supervisor as well) and my partner's mother has a house and a very good income and has written a statement noting she is happy to sign an Assurance of Support and post any bail necessary.

My fear is that they won't even ask us for those things (better Dutch stat decs or the Assurance of Support) and just go ahead and turn us straight down... because everything is so behind closed doors I never know what to expect.

Just have to remind myself there is no point in worrying! It is just very hard to make plans and build a life together not knowing if it'll have to be broken back down the next day. I didn't expect a quick grant... I am moreso afraid of the rejection, early or late!
