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.
Cheers thanks you two, wasn't privy to the 2015 info

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.

All you can do is follow their instructions and requests.
Upload the new form 80, try not to stress and think positive.

Hi, is this for the second stage of your visa?
When you did submit?
Can I ask which section of the form they asked you for?
We are also at this stage, our case officer asked us back in September for my police check which I have now uploaded it, but nothing about sponsors police check or any forms - I have my fingers crossed for you!

Anna 🙂

If I weren't married, I would probably just put "partner's (sponsor) mother/brother". I don't know about the in-law thing you asked earlier when de facto. Sorry!

Hi everyone,

We applied for the 820/801 my wife (then-partner) on 9 June 2015 when I was a PR (now citizen), through a migration agent. She was granted the 820 on 12 December 2016. We subsequently lodged the 801 on 13 July 2017 and it has been 17 months since date of eligibility for the 801. Realistically can we expect it to arrive any time now, given the timeframe provided by DIBP? We have not been asked to provide any additional documents.

Understand that it has been discussed a few times on this forum, but can I confirm if DIBP has a practice of discriminating on the basis of country of origin in place when processing partner visa applications, which can affect their processing time? For this purpose, my wife is Vietnamese and I hold dual Australian-Vietnamese citizenships.

What other factors in respect of the applicant/sponsor can also affect visa processing time? Further note that my wife is employed full-time by an established, well-known boutique accounting practice and completed both her undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in Australia. As for myself, I am working for one of the Big 4 consulting firms.

Therefore, on top of our genuine relationship and apart from our country of origin, overall I can say our profiles are pretty 'low-risk', but not sure how the Department will view our application from their perspective.

Any feedback/comments will be much appreciated.

My thoughts are that I've seen people from low risk countries wait just as long or longer.
