You can only apply 1 month before your eligibility date now. However, they won't even look at it until after your eligibility date. My eligibility date is 5 October 2018. I received an email from DIBP stating I could go ahead and complete my 2nd stage application on 6 September 2018. I've already uploaded almost everything needed, except for my Form 888's (waiting on these from family/friends), my husband's Stat Dec (which is printed and will be done in the next day or two) and our AFPs. I plan to have it all uploaded for a decision ready application by my eligibility date: 5 October 2018.

As for the passport, IMMI recommends that you have at least 6 months before passport expiry. So if it were me, I would just go ahead and renew the passport beforehand so that it's all completed. Either way though, you would just update the passport on your MyIMMI account.

Hope that helps.

I didn't get an email from DIBP (DHA now) about the eligibility, I just started the application & uploading files a few days before the date I was eligible, but I submitted it a couple weeks after.

That would be because there was a time period where they decided that they weren't going to remind anyone. They've recently started to again. I want to say they stopped sending them out sometime towards the end of last year and only began doing it again a few months ago.

Do I need to send this documents?

Hello Everyone I hope you all are doing well,

I applied for my 801 visa on June this year, on the recommended check list on my immiaccount some documents that I don't understand or potentially I don't need, however I'm wondering if someone can confirm if I need to send any of this documents:
1.Change of name (I never changed my name)
2.Form 956 Advice by a migration agent/exempt person (I did my first 820 visa application through a Immigration lawyer and I applied to the 801 by my self)
3.Form 956A Appointment or withdrawal of an authorised recipient.

I really appreciate any help

Regards

I have always ignored the "recommended" upload list in immi. It has always seemed generic and half of them never applied to me. I always follow the visa checklist provided on the website.

Perfect example, I've never used an agent and those options were also in my immi account. So clearly, they wouldn't apply.

That's actually reduced from the 20-26 months it was just recently

But yes, still ridiculous.

At 17 months, yours is taking longer than the average.

Of the subclass 801 Partner visas granted in August, where the processing time was shown under the 18-25 group, only 15% took between 18 and 25 months and 10% took longer than 25 months.
75% however, took under 18 months with many much less, with the average around 11 or 12 months.

The July (19-23 months) median average processing time was 11.2 months.
The first 25% were done in under 8.5 months.
The next 25% were done between 8.5 and 11.2 months.
The next 25% were done between 11.2 and 19.4 months.
The next 25% were done between 19.4 and 24 months.

The change from July to August shows the maximum time for the majority 75% has dropped from 19 to 18 months, but the time for the longest 10% has increased from a minimum of 23 months to 25 months.

The ones with nice and easy applications seem to do OK at around 6-9 months, with half of all grants taking under 12 months.

The more applications though, the longer the wait for some.
Immigration are only permitted to approve so many grants per period, the rest go into waiting or get refused.

I saw that in past years around 17% of sc801 applications were refused.

mine is easy and ive supplied more evidence than you can poke a stick at, however they haven't even looked at it. I just have the last update as November last year when they upgraded their website and everything changed to "Further Processing"
