Wish that was easy, but it isn't. You gotta lodge a complete new & up to date application for 801 stage, then keep you fingers as well as your toes crossed.

Been there, felt that!

I note a lot of people lodge a second application for the 801, but our paperwork seems to suggest we don't need to:

- Married in Australia October, 2015
- Applied 820/801 November 30, 2015
- Granted 820 on July 12, 2017
- Eligible for 801 from November 30, 2017 (yesterday)

On the 820 it says:



I rang an Immi officer today to ask about progress, as yesterday is the two years anniversary of our initial 820/801 application. He didn't want to look at out application whatsoever, seemed in a hurry to fob me off but said I need to make a new application for an 801. I said I thought our application already covered that, and he said no I need to apply. This runs contrary to everything I've read on *our* particular application process, as in the above quote from our 820 grant letter.

Can anyone advise me on what we need to do - ie. wait for 801 to be approved without a further application, OR lodge a further 801 application?

Appreciate any advice.
Even though they call it an application form it is not actually an application as an application is when you pay a fee (I hope that makes sense).

You will need to submit the form and supply documents for the stage 2. They will not grant it without this. If you don't do it then you risk the visa getting refused as you did not provide proof that you are still genuine and continuing.

Thanks Mish - that actually makes sense, that it's not an "application form" in the true sense of the term, but more like a providing of a few extra details. It was the semantics of "application" that confused me, especially since the grant letter for the 820 said "no more applications necessary.".

Having done a little more research I'm getting an understanding of the extra details I need to provide.... so thanks for the heads up.

BTW, is there an average time (or time range) that most people here cite from time of lodging an 801 "application" and the grant of same?

There is a spreadsheet on the first page with the grants etc. From what I have seen lately most are waiting around 14 to 16 months from eligibility date to receive the PR.

Hi Everyone. My partner submitted his 801 application on 30 June 2017. We're hoping to have an answer before 30 June 2018. Because we are also living in different states due to his work, do you think this will delay the outcome? I really don't like this waiting because now I want to work overseas, but I can't because if I do - as his sponsor - it might jeopardize his application.

Most are waiting 14 to 16 months at the moment.

I will be honest living in different states in Australia may make the processing times longer. It may be a concern to DIBP that you are living apart for a long period of time when the applicant has the visa to live with the sponsor.

yes, most of our processing estimates are listed as that. However, the time varies from applicant to applicant. The average seems to be more around 12-14 months.
