I wasn't sure if they would ask for more evidence or not, but I figured if they happened to look at my case soon and saw recent evidence, maybe they would just grant it on the spot. I'm not sure if that's what happened though.

Hi,

I have a question about the AFP check my husband and I have to complete. We would like to apply online.

My husband and I don't have access to a printer because we don't have one in our home. Is it possible to save the consent form generated during the application, save it to our computer, print it in a few days from now when we have printer access, go back and start a new application and upload the consent form we downloaded and signed earlier. Or does the consent form have to be printed, signed and the application finished immediately?

Thanks,

Should be fine if you do it in NSW.

last time when I did it in NSW State Library, I dont need to print, just need to put in all the details, and paid online, and I have got the police clearance within a day with en email (in my Australia Post account), then posted to my place after a few days.

Hey guys a quick question if i may...

My wife was granted her 820 visa back in 2015. My wife and I have been together since 2013.

I applied for the 801 visa April 1 2017. It has now been almost 1 year and 1 month waiting for the 801 and i have heard nothing

My wife and i have a 2.5 year old child as well.

Any ideas what i can do and why it's taking so long? I was under the impression since we had a child that was 1 and a half when applying and had been together 3 years we would get the 801. I can't get any answers.

Help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

If you had the child when you applied and proof of your relationship for 2 years or more, you would have been eligible to waive thr 2 year waiting period between the 820/801 application and 801 eligibility, essentially getting the 801 at the same time as the 820.

Unfortunately, that didn't happen so you had to wait until eligibility for the 801 and now you're just in the same queue as everyone else who is eligible. Having a child doesn't speed that process up. A lot of people have a child of the relationship by the 801 stage so it's not unique circumstances. As for the long term relationship thing you're referencing, that would have had to been brought to their attention when the 820 was granted.

Hopefully the wait is almost over.

Any ideas why they didnt even inform me of this when i applied? we were together 4 years already with a child. We have been screwed at every point. nearly 2 years to even get an 820. then 2 years on the 820 now over one year after applying for 801. Other people get it so easy but we have been screwed hardcore. So i am guessing nothing i can do now apart from wait another year 18-22 months processing time for 801.

should i call them? Today i flooded them with photo's of proof lol

Current processing times for the 801 are that 75% are done in under 18 months, with 25% taking longer.

Processing time for subclass 801 Partner (permanent) visa is from date of eligibility (2 years after the 820/801 application is lodged) to finalisation.

Effectively 75% are finalised within three and a half years after submitting the 820/801 application.

To get the 801 at the same time as the 820, the following must have applied when you submitted the 820 application, presumably sometime before 2015.
You had been with your partner for two years or more and you and your partner have a dependent child of your relationship.

What date did you apply for the 820/801 originally, and how long had you been together at that time?

The long term relationship was an at time of application requirement and you needed to supply de facto/spouse evidence of that whole time as well for it to count. It has always been listed on the partner visa website and in the partner migration handbook. Immigration is not going to go out of their way to explain every option or detail to every applicant. Even if you felt you qualified, the CO determines if you do or not. If they feel the evidence isn't there or part of that time was dating, they probably won't grant straight PR.

Yes some people get grants faster, but you aren't being screwed. In fact, your timeline is pretty average for most people. It's a long process. Some people get lucky and get through it quickly but that doesn't mean that's normal. Normal is where you are. Some people wait a lot longer than you likely will.

Also, dependent child of the relationship means a child that has been born, not still in the womb. So it comes down to the day the 820/801 app was made. Was the child already born and did you supply proof of a de facto/spouse relationship for a minimum of 2 years prior to the date of application?

Either way, it's a moot point now. You would have had to address that at the time the 820 was granted and they may have relooked at your evidence and granted the 801.
