Are there any significant negatives to applying later than the eligibility date and does the time still count from September 2017, even if we only apply now?
The negative is that they can look at your case at any time and if you've provided nothing, then that's no bueno. Especially if they send you an email requesting tge information within a certain timeframe and that email never gets to you. They can then make a decision which, if no information was provided and again not provided after requested, will result in a refusal of the visa.

Missed emails happen. Sometimes it's your email and things get sent to spam and permanently deleted after so many days so you never see it, and sometimes, like with me, the email never gets to you at all because of a typo in the email address by the CO (they put ".cm" instead of ".com"). We were incredibly fortunate a different CO picked up our file after we failed to respond in 28 days and forwarded us the email, noticing that we never received it in the first place. That could have ended completely differently if that wasn't picked up on.

Basically, get your stuff in as soon as possible and avoid any unfortunate mishaps or plain bad luck. If you've done your part, the rest is easy.

It looks the time may be from the eligibility date. This post 5 Months for a sc100 had someone get the 100 visa 5 months after submission, but they submitted 6 months after eligibility date, making it 11 months from eligibility to grant.

But of course, no guarantees..

I personally think that your late application will be no problem but I believe that they will count the time from the day you logged in. Anyway, your baby is Aussie already WELL DONE!!

They will assess you after your eligibility date whether you logged in and submitted the info or not. Someone posted here recently saying they never submitted and were worried because they got a request and didn't think they could get everything in within the short time frame they were told.

I would never take such a risk when immigration holds your life in their hands, essentially. Just upload your info and be done with it. Why take the chance of doing nothing and hoping everything will be fine?

Oh dear, that's certainly got me worried a bit! I applied for my police certificate a week ago and am in the process of compiling all my info. I'm hoping to be able to submit a complete application in a couple of weeks.

Hello,
I am hoping some of you can help me with this question

I applied for my 820 in late 2016 and it was granted after a few months.
When we first applied for my 820, my partner (the sponsor) was working and so he had been since he was 18 years old. In July 2017 he decided to follow his dream and go back to school (he had started uni a few years back before he met me and he had dropped out for financial reasons), and I have been fully supportive of him going back to school. He is receiving financial help from his father as his father has offered to help and my partner doesn't want to put all the "burden" on me. We still have our joint account and we equally contribute towards rent, bills and other expenses, but since my partner started school and stopped working, he does not have many transactions in his individual bank account as he he pays for most of his own things in cash and only transfers to our joint account for bills, rent, groceries etc.

When we provide supporting evidence for my 801, do we need to provide individual bank account statements or is that not essential and the joint account together with joint bills should be enough as financial evidence?

Also, is it a problem for DIBP that the sponsor is not employed while he is studying?

I would appreciate it if you can offer your thoughts on the above.

Thanks

The joint bank account details and statements are sufficient.

There is no employment requirements for the 801 (or 820 for that matter), it is a "partner" visa not a "work" visa after all!

Best of luck!

As HRose said above, it will not be an issue for your situation.

The Department of immigration is not concerned with your income/employment for partner visas, they are concerned with the genuineness of the relationship.

Hi Everyone

After a very long wait I got my Grant Notice today! I thought I will share my journey

My visa journey:
03/06/14 Applied 820
12/05/15 820 Visa Granted
24/06/16 Applied 801
28/02/18 801 Visa Granted
(Online and complete application)

After 20 months of waiting I finally got my visa.There was no contact from Immigration during this time. Yesterday I was reading threads in this forum and I thought I will send an email to Immigration. This morning I got generic email saying that visas processing times have been changed etc... And I thought great.. I have to wait another 4 months, but then this afternoon I got GRANT NOTICE
I'm from high risk country. During this 20 months I only updated twice: new passport information and marriage certificate. I'm surprised they didn't ask me to send updated Police Check(I guess it's valid only 12 months?!)

Anyway I'm super happy and excited. I hope you guys don't have to wait that long!

Hi,

Could anyone help clear up the following for me:

1. Is it necessary to complete form 80 again for 801 application?

2. Is another AFP check required? I have lived in Australia for the past two years and a bit.

3. Is it necessary to include "other mail" (addressed individually) when this is already covered in other pieces of evidence? For example, our individual bank statements (which I have uploaded) are addressed to me and my partner individually.

This is what I've uploaded so far, I would be very happy if anyone could see if it's enough or not

Household:
- Joint car rego
- Joint utilities bills since 820 grant
- Applicant added to car insurance

Registered relationship:
- Civil partnership certificate from 2016 (from before 820 grant, was also uploaded to 820 application)

Financial:
- Joint account statements since 820 grant
- Applicant bank statement
- Sponsor bank statement
- Both of these highlighting transfers between us, travel bookings, and other things that tie us together (sponsor paid for ultrasound for our unborn baby, purchase of engagement ring)

Couple are living together:
- Joint lease agreement since 820 grant

Commitment:
- Ultrasound receipts
- Messenger excerpts from periods apart

Stat decs:
- Two from mutual friends and one from sponsor's sister
- Sponsor

Social:
- Flight confirmations with both our names on them
- Hotel bookings (all in sponsor's name but for two ppl and the dates match up with highlighted items in bank statements)
- Pictures together overseas, with friends in Australia, two baby ultrasound


Again, any help is much appreciated!!
