Music to my ears! Thank you to you and HRose for sharing your thoughts on our situation.

Cheers!

Current Processing time

Hi All,

Thank you for sharing your visa application experiences, they are so helpful.

My eligible date was 16/12/2016
Applied 801 on 16/01/2016

Currently I am still waiting...

My question is when I was eligible for 801 application, I got an email from Immigration says the waiting period is 6 months, and soon after that Immigration extended the waiting period to 12 - 18 months. Now, when I check my application again the waiting period became 18 - 23 months...

I am wondering if I should expect my visa processing to be 18 - 23 months or 12-18 months given I submitted my application before they extended the waiting period?

Also my visa application status is "Assessment in Progress" does that mean there is an officer is currently working on my application?


Many thanks,
Chloe

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!
WOW niceeee!!! but 20 months is a long time at least better than never..... all best!!!

It is not easy to estimate how long it will take, however, the processing time ranges are given for actual processing for the month ending 31 January 2018. I assume that is based on the actual grants processed in January.

Those processing times you quote (18 - 23 months or 12-18 months) were for only 15% of the applications granted. 75% of the grants were done in under the lower figure of that range, with 10% being over the higher figure.

eg: If it is the 18 - 23 months range, then:
75% were done in 1 to 18 months
15% in 18 to 23 months
10% took over 23 months. (ie: applied for over 2 years ago)

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!!

[QUOTE=kris1;1825706]Hi,

YES

I would be including other mail as well, just to add to your evidence. I would be getting evidence of shared address from different sources, not just bank statements.

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

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

Is this the Relationship Certificate? I have been wondering about this as well. I am not sure whether we are required to submit evidence which was already submitted for the first part of the visa, but then again Certificate of Relationship is important. Perhaps someone else can help with this?

Typically you submit evidence since the grant of the last visa, but I consider that more general relationship evidence like what you've done since then together, if you still live together, etc. I would still include items such as a marriage certificate or relationship certificate regardless of if I uploaded it in previous applications. Same goes for a birth certificate of a child or something.

My relationship certificate is from 2016 and it has our first address where we lived together as well as our occupations in 2016. We have moved twice since then and changed careers. Should I still include it?

Thanks

I don't see why not. No guarantee that a CO is going to know your relationship is registered if you don't as I doubt they go through old evidence from previously closed applications.

Think about it this way, I basically consider a relationship certificate or marriage certificate (Or birth certificate of a child) to be more of an identity document and I consider it under the evidence I will definitely upload. I wouldn't consider it under the relationship evidence category as much. Those things I'll upload every time regardless of which stage I'm on.

The other evidence like where we live, that we've still been living together, social activities, holidays, major purchases, etc go in the evidence since last grant category in my mind. I wouldn't resubmit those things from prior to the last visa grant, only since then.
