Hi All

My husband got his 801 PR granted this afternoon after waiting just under 12 months from eligibility date.

A bit of background - I lodged a complaint with immigration the end of April 2017 and then got a standard response in early May 2017 (it was the same response as others had received). I lodged an ombudsman complaint afterwards and was advised on Monday that immigration had 21 days to reply. Immigration request today that I withdraw the ombudsman complaint as they already had a case officer working on the case. It sounded like they were working on it from the immigration complaint that I lodged. They said that it required additional departmental resources to deal with 2 complaints. I told them I would withdraw the complaint and they said that it would be finalised today or tomorrow. She would not advise on the phone if it was an approval but said I can tell by her voice lol.

The entire process from the first application took 4 years and 1 month and 1 week (approximately).

Talking Awesome News!

Warmest congratulations to you both. Your extraordinary patience and ultimate calm and commonsense have been rewarded at last. Thank you for all you have done for so many here over such a long time. Time to celebrate a little and relax into a long happy and successful life together in Oz. It's the best news I've had today... by far! :

You should wait 2 weeks before you lodge with the ombudsman to give them a chance to look at it. When you lodge with the ombudsman it won't matter who lodges it.

Interesting enough when I withdraw the ombudsman complaint they emailed back and asked if my husband agreed because I lodged it on his behalf bahahaha.

Lol thats funny , but also why did they ask you to withdraw the complain before the grant?
Just to clear up i did not lodge a complain , i just emailed them asking for an update and clarification as last January they advised me the visa should be processed within 12 Month Maximum

Sorry wanna ask a quick question. I am an Aussie citizen, my wife is now at the second stage partner visa i.e. 801
Obviously, she is not PR or resident yet
Will intend to go to holiday with her in the next few months for a week to NZ or Fiji.

Will be purchasing travel/medical insurance. Obviously, this is not an issue for me since I am a citizen here,

However, an issue for my wife so I wanna ask, which company that covers for travel/medical insurance for NON Aus resident ?

And is it that we purchase 2 diff insurance company given i am an Aussie citizen and she is not?

Thanks in advance

They asked me to withdraw it as they were about to finalise it and if I don't withdraw it then they need to respond to the ombudsman and that takes extra departmental resources. I am actually happy I was told to do this because then they can spend that time processing visa's.

You will need to lodge a complaint with immigration first and then wait 2 weeks and then lodge one with the ombudsman. This is because the ombudsman will not look at it unless you have made a complaint with immigration.

I would lodge a complaint with immigration if I was you.

She is a resident as she lives in Australia, so you would need to see if it says resident or permanent resident.

We got ours with the commonwealth bank complimentary insurance, I think it is Zurich.
