Still waiting..
Anyone on same boat??? Was eligible for 801 on 15 march 2017 but my agent was careless and didnt had any clue whats going on. So i applied myself on 05/11/17.
Application shows further assesment
Had a contact with immigration call centre and was advised that 801 processing time counts when you submit the application/documents and NOT ON ELIGIBLE DATE.
Currently you're still within the average wait times, and despite some people noting early grants on here, I'd wager that most people are in the same boat. CO's usually don't contact applicants unless there is missing documentation or they need updated information OR until your application has finished processing. I wouldn't go by your application status either, most of the time they don't mean much unless the status is "incomplete", "information requested", or "finalised".

Also, as what Sky said, to my knowledge processing goes by eligibility date not by upload date. If that was the case, then you'd only be waiting 5 months which is much less than the average wait times which are around a year.

Well official processing times are 18-23 months, on the immigration website.

My application for 801 went in on 19th May 2017.
I submitted stacks of evidence, etc, then sat and waited.
Last week I logged in to see my status had changed from 'submitted' to 'further assessment' - which made me think at least something was happening.
Got an email yesterday, expected it to be a request for more information (or yet another police check, as they have a habit of expiring before processing by immigration) - but no, it was my 801 grant... So 11 months 3 weeks and 4 days.


From getting my initial 457 to having my full PR was 4 years, 11 months, 1 week.

Only an estimated 15% take between 18-23 months. 75% processed in 18 months means anyone that takes anywhere from 1 day to 18 months falls into that 75%.

Congrats on the grant. Always nice to see the ones that take less than a year.

Guys just letting everyone know that regarding to 801 processing time its from eligibility date not submission date after spending nearly 2 hrs on the phone to clarify this i was lucky to be answered by an officer that works in partner processing centre he was very nice and helpful .
He told me that once application is eligible for 801 regardless if applicant updated his evidence or not it sits in the queue to be processed so be careful there is a chance to be rejected if picked up but no evidence updated.
Secondly i asked him about immi account status he insisted and confirmed that statuses of immiaccounts are right they give an idea of where the application is now
And about the length processing time he said theres only around 100 case officer national wide processing Thousands of partner applications

Talked with 2 different immigration lawyers and I called again to immigration this morning about 801 processing times and they talked exactly same thing what immigration said to me that processing time starts when you actually submit the documents or application for 801 and NOT ON ELIGIBLE DATE.

So there’s something not right here and we need to clarify this thing with as much people as we can.

When you say “My application went in on 19th may 2017”. Do you mean you were eligible on this date or you submitted your documents?? If you submitted documents then what was your eligible date??

Immigration website clearly states it's based on eligibility and from experiences of people on this forum, that is it as well. Now the 801 APPLICATION is made at stage 1, so yes that wait time is based on when you apply. The eligibility stage is not.

Believe what you want to believe, but either way people should be submitting docs when they are eligible or risk refusal if your file gets picked up and there's nothing there.

And yes it will eventually get picked up because you're in the queue from eligiblity date. Otherwise by not doing anything after the 820, it would be an indefinite visa which we all know doesn't happen.

there's people who have had their 309/820 cancelled and had to leave the country as they didn't perform any action.
so if they didn't do the next stage stuff how was their visa looked at?

I totally agree with you what’s mentioned in immigration website and as per that the wait time should start as soon as you are eligible. It just does not make sense to start counting time when you submit the documents.
Till this point of time not sure what to believe untill I get my grant or any requests.
820 is not indefinate visa. It’s valid untill a decision is made on 801. So at one point of time decision has to come for 801.

I know that. That was an example of why 801 wait can't possibly be from time documents are submitted. Otherwise people whose relationships have broken down in the process could simply not notify immigration and never send docs for the 801, thus staying on the 820 indefinitely. Since we know this isn't a possibility, it just shows that regardless of docs submitted or not, the file will go into queue and a decision will be made eventually.
