This. I used this form to say basically the same thing and got my 801 grant the next day. Supplied all documents as per the checklist from the permanent partner calculator and no contact besides grant. Status was received when I did it.

22 months? I wonder why approvals are so sporadic and aren't in order. Hopefully yours comes through any day now!

Partner and I have been together 6 years, no kids, got engaged last year, own a house together.

Ok, so I was looking through my 801 application and saw that I mistakenly put my son's employment Jun 2017 instead of Jun 2018. Is this something I would use a form to correct? I put the incorrect date in two spots, so will need to correct that, as he wasn't at Uni or working at his current job until 2018.

I would. I think there's an online form you can use in immi.

So today I had my first communication with the department of home affairs.. I almost NEVER answer private numbers but my gut told me too.. Damn near wet myself with excitement..
Applied in July 2017 and today was the first contact we've had in 15 months.

At this stage, its just a request for my police checks as a sponsor, nothing further required for my husband just yet.

We had planned to get his FBI checks, AFP and medical done but haven't had an official request for it yet..

I wonder if this is the start of something huge.

I would love to say this is a coincidence, but we applied for our second BVB so he could travel home to the states in 10 days time, so I feel that pushed our name up some kind of list.

Apologies if this is a silly question - but anyone able to point me towards the distinction between high risk / low risk countries? (I found some stuff online regarding TB and medical examinations but I'm not sure).

I always thought it was low risk = ETA eligible countries and high risk = non-ETA eligible countries. That being said, last I saw the term on the immigration website was before global processing times were rolled out. They used to have wait times for each visa based on low or high risk countries with low risk being lower wait times.

In 2015 the immigration department appeared to have had this:
  • Low risk applies to nationals from countries which issue ETA eligible passports.
  • High risk countries are those which are not ETA eligible.

I am not sure how relevant it is, as I have seen high risk countries (Philippines) getting visas faster then low risk countries (UK) at times.

You mention TB and medical, and I would assume they have a different definition for medical risk areas, based on the medical risks in that country, and in other countries you have visited.

I just saw this on a government website:
an incidence of above 40 tuberculosis cases per 100 000 people to be a high risk or high burden country.
