"You can be in OR OUTSIDE Australia when a decision is made on the permanent Partner visa (subclass 801)."

It's not a gray area. You can be anywhere in the world for the grant of the 801. You only need to be onshore for the grant of the 820.

Hi all, my eligibility date is 31-May-2018 which is in a few days time. I wanted to apply today since today is a weekend and 31st is a Thursday.

However I got to the question: Has it been a total of 24 months since the date the applicant lodged their temporary partner visa application? I selected "no" and it wouldn't let me proceed.

I thought I was allowed to submit my documents a month before my eligibility date. This is so annoying.

I have a feeling that that wording for submitting documents early comes from the days of paper applications. So you could send by post to ensure it gets there in time for your eligibility date but they wouldn't assess until after.

No point in applying early if you're doing it online imo. If you prep everything before hand, it shouldn't take more than an hour or so to get it all in when the time comes.

It's getting close! Almost time to lodge the 801 (5 October 2018). So of course, I'm starting to put together evidence. So exciting to see 801s being granted. Congrats to all who've gotten theirs already! Here's what I have thus far for evidence for ours:

820 Granted May 2017:

-Joint car loan (May 2017)
-Our wedding in Australia (16 Dec 2017) with marriage certificate
-Travel to USA (18 Dec 2017-17 Jan 2018)
-2nd wedding in USA (23 Dec 2017) with decorative certificate (official wedding was in Australia)
-Joint lease agreement
-Wills
-Joint bills
-Separate bank statements (highlighted to show bills/groceries, etc)
-Supers with spouse as beneficiary
-Facebook pages linked (May 2017- ongoing)
-Family medical insurance (Aug 2017-ongoing)
-Family pics at events
-Stat decs from husband and myself about our ongoing relationship, household, etc.

Will start getting 888s in the next few months. We will be opening a joint account; but I'm the primary earner in our family, so we just hadn't gotten around to it. Husband just had first eye surgery on right eye and will have surgery on left eye in Sep/Oct. Should we include information about this? I only ask as we had to meet S3 requirements for 820 and this was one of the main reasons for meeting S3 (husband's eye deterioration/partial blindness). I think I've seen before where once S3 is met, we don't have to meet it again for 801, but I want to be certain.

Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance!

We are on the same page as I had my 820 granted in May 2017 and I am eligible to apply for 801 at the end of October 2018 (except that we are not married but on a De facto relationship since 2014), so I would love to see your progress with this.

I think the evidence you mention here will cover all four different relationship aspects (nature of household, financial aspects, nature of commitment and social aspects).

What is an S3 requirement?

Hi Ejona,

S3 is referring to Schedule 3. I had some issues and ended up on a BVA when I applied for my 820 visa. There were solid reasons for it and it couldn't be avoided at the time. We knew that we would have to face Schedule 3 criteria and were ready for it. But it was a very scary time. I do NOT ever recommend anyone facing S3 unless it is absolutely necessary, because it is extremely difficult to meet the requirements.

Yes, I'm pretty confident in my evidence for the 801. Just putting it out there to see if I missed anything. I tend to over analyse everything...but better that than not be prepared.

It was the Schedule 3 requirement - LadyR had a few issues along the way.

Hi,
I just thought I would post our experience as my girlfriend from The Netherlands was just granted her 801.

We submitted the original 820 defacto visa in July 2016 and then all of the paperwork for the 801 on the 1st August 2017 and received the 801 visa grant notice on the 25th May 2018 so we waited about 9 months after we did all the 801 paperwork.

We basically treated it like a new application in that we submitted all of the evidence we could find to prove that the relationship was ongoing. We were never contacted by the department at all for any information or interviews. The grant notice just came out of the blue.

Pretty happy at this point. We can just get on with life now with some security. We hired Trublue migration for our application and feel they did a good job.

Hi everyone.

Just wanna ask do I need to call immigration to ask my status of my application?
Coz I did paper submission I don't know what is my visa status.
I can't update them like giving them new photos or new doc coz I did submit it paper not online.
When I check immigration calculation online it says I'm overdue.

March 16, 2015 : submitted 820/801
May 27, 2016 :Got 820 granted
Last week of Feb 2017 I submitted my doc for 801 application.
March 6, 2017: Immigration acknowledged they received all my paper documents for my 801 application.
