You will need an AFP for the 801 as the one for the 820 will be expired. The AFP usually needs to be valid at the time that the 801 is granted. They do have a small discretion but nothing huge like expired by 3 years.

According to the website for the 801, this is what it states:

Character documents
Provide an Australian police certificate if you didn't provide it for your temporary Partner visa and for any country you have lived in since you were granted the subclass 820 visa.

My friend her husband was asked to supply one when his visa was granted because the one submitted at 801 had expired. Unless they have changed things in the last 2 months.

I am surprised you can find anything on their new piece of junk website.

I know, the website is ridiculous now.

As for the AFP, I thought I'd have to do new ones. Then saw people getting grants without supplying them. Sky is the one who drew my attention to the statement on the website saying that AFPs aren't needed if you've had them done for the 820. Seems silly to me, as you have to have police checks for the 820. However, I see the logic that you shouldn't need another AFP for the 801 after being here already. I'll supply them if they ask, but will wait until then.

Might be a case by case basis. I guess there is no stopping someone to commit a crime between the 820 grant and the 801 grant.

I know with citizenship they do the AFP's for you.

The issue with that is that someone might forgot about something that happened and if they don't declare it their citizenship can get refused.

Thanks to both.

The last police check I got before this one was a UK one for PMV in early 2016. I'm going to upload the one I have as it look exactly the same as the one my husband did for the 820 and then get around to applying for one from their link at some point soon.

I'm not completely following the discussion here, partly because I don't really understand what the eligibility date is.

We've had a few steps so far. First was application and payment, then the submission of the documents and approval for the temporary visa in early 2017. But very recently we received notification that we could submit more documents, and it hasn't been entirely clear what we should be doing now. We found an old checklist of documents, and have been going through that, but a lot of it is the same as what we provided over a year ago.

Your eligibility date is referring to when you are eligible to apply for the 2nd stage of your visa (801). You are eligible to apply for it 2 years from the date that you submitted your 820 application. Though, they usually do send an email 1 month before your eligibility date, which allows you to do your application at that point.

You need to log into your MyImmi account and submit a new application, for the 2nd stage 801 visa. You'll have to do all of the information over, complete the new application. And yes, you'll have to provide more evidences. But, they want to see evidences from the grant of your 820 to the present. That's the important part. You need to prove that you are STILL in an ongoing, genuine relationship.

Application date is the day you submitted the 820/801 application.

Eligibility date is exactly two years after that date. Means you're eligible for Stage 2 assessment for PR. You basically do the online form and then supply all the same types of evidences except they only need to be since the grant date of the 820. Also need police checks if necessary, sponsor to do the sponsor stat dec, and new form 888s.

See website for instructions.

Aha! Thanks for replying so fast. I wasn't sure if it was the earlier date, or now. What's the process after we submit all those documents? And is it just me, or did they change the website drastically since last year?
