Indeed it would be more fair if old applications stuck with the old standard processing times. However, there has been a lack of staffs allocated to assess applications over the year, so it's hard to say we might be in that 6 - 8 months frame. (You'll have to be extremely lucky to be granted this quick) Perhaps it's even tough for dibp as well with the high inflow of work pressure they be getting. We'll just never know

You and I applied at the same year. But I have 2 friends who applied on February & April same year like us they already granted their PR, but they both are 309/100 Visa.

I just wondering the 820/801 visa takes more longer to be process. Is it right?

Hi Guys,

I have been following the forum for quite a bit now, but never posted anything, I was always reading the good experiences of some people and the not so good experiences from some people as well, and always wondering what if, I didn't do it that way, oh I missed doing that, I should have done that as well and so on...anyway always happy to see posts of people being approved it gave me a little bit of relief, finally it's my turn to say my 801 has been approved, I was absolutely shocked because I wasn't expecting to be this soon, as per the immigration website states that the processing times are from 16 to 22 months and here the majority of people has been waiting around that time to get approved, I applied for the 820 on Nov 2014 it was approved on March 2016 and my eligibility date to apply for the 801 was on Nov 2016, I applied for the 801 on the 22 Nov 2016 so it took less than 12 months, didn't use an agent at all, never was contacted by immigration, only uploaded the documentation requested by immi when they sent the email to apply for the 801, never uploaded more docs until last month that I added the tax return declaration showing my partners name and my new NSW id card and my partner's new drive licence (both with the samw address) and that's it I guess... all this process has been a roller coaster, it's not easy but it's worth it, I have a mix of feelings at the moment but I think it is totally normal when you finally take off that height out of your shoulders, for the people that still waiting don't give up and don't get over stress and try to keep going without thinking too much about it, I really hope that all get approved soon...

Congratulation! I hope you enjoy your permanent stay in Aus! It's always good to hear people getting grants.

Which country are you from?

Just wanted to thank everyone on this forum, I don't think we would have been able to do it without the help from everyone on here, not only from answering my questions but we also learnt so much from just reading other posts/threads. My visa was granted on Friday morning.
I didn't expect anything until early next year and I also thought we would have to send in more evidence.

Been a long 3 year process, so glad this is over!


These are my dates:
Online - No agent
Applied 26th Nov 2014
820 Granted 12th Feb 2016
801 Applied 11th Dec 2016
801 Granted 10th Nov 2017

Been wanting some advice regarding with what we have provided to DIBP. I was wondering if anyone thinks this is a strong/good case for our 801?

General Evidence
- Police check for myself
- Two form 888s from two of our friends, with information about our relationship (prior to 801, for 820 we had families doing the 888s)

Financial Evidence
- Joint bank statement
- Individual bank statements (to show our incomes as that's where we get paid)
- Payslips from both of us (from the 820 grant period to submission period - our addresses our printed on it too)

Household Evidence (we actually live in my husband's sister's home - she owns it and we don't pay rent)
- Our phone bills are separate but same address as well
- Copies of our drivers license with same address
- Mails and letters addressed to me (to prove I live at the address) - blood donation, subscription mails, parcels etc... (have a lot of junk mails with my name and address on it)
- Mails and letters addressed to my husband (same as above) - centrelink, his uni paperwork, reward programs, blood donation, ads, letters from councils etc..
- Joint purchases of household products - receipt included joint names too (fridge, washing machine, air conditioners)
- Costco memberships

Commitment Evidence
- Statement with our written goals
- Pictures and receipts of valentines day surprise my husband did for me
- Husband placed me as his person of contact on his car insurance
Unable to provide beneficiaries for wills/superannuation as we saw no use of it due to superannuation barely have any value and no assets as we don't have the income to afford a house or any major asset, husband owns a car, but it is under his name only as I didn't want to be on it since I didn't have license when he first bought the vehicle

Social Evidence
- Photos of us attending charity events together
- Photos of us attending birthday parties with friends
- Photos of us at family gatherings
- Photos of our Adelaide trip and meeting up with friends
- Photos of our Japan trip and meeting up with my aunty and friends
- Itinerary and passport stamps of our Japan trip
- Itinerary & boarding passes of our Adelaide trip
- Hotel receipt for our Japan trip
- Hotel receipt for our Adelaide trip
- Sports club memberships
- Notified DIBP about our upcoming trip to Vietnam next year as well by providing itineraries and hotels

Also, we both are quite young (22 and 24), my husband is still studying full time + working, I am just working full time. Hoping I land PR soon so I can studying without paying too much! Anyway, we are very worried about lacking in financial evidence and commitment because we just don't have the income to afford anything major and all our savings pretty much has invested into this application and the agent we hired Do you think DIBP will consider our low income and circumstances when assessing our 801?
