Any tips would be helpful
Personally, I wouldn't.

Hey guys, figured now's a good time to start researching on the forums again as I'm eligible to apply for my 801 Visa next month (Mid Feb 2019) - I applied for my 820/801 With my Aus Partner back in Feb 2017, and it took around a year to be granted, FYI.


I have a few questions regarding the 801 application and the general state of things at present -



Generally speaking, as it says 75% of applications processed within 19 months, what is a realistic waiting time for the average application? I know some people here have unfortunately been waiting a lot longer than the estimated wait times listed, but is it likely to be processed within 12 months as my 820 was?



Assuming I upload plenty documents, photos, bills, statements etc for the time spent since the 820 grant until the date of eligibility for 801 application, do I need to continue uploading documents indefinitely? or do people just stop uploading once they apply for 801?




Do they look at your documents from the 820 application (such as your statements) to see if your plans together are in line with what you intended initially, or is everything from the 820 basically in the past and they just look at what youre submitting in the 801 application box?


Thanks!

What day exactly did you apply for the 820/801? You can expect the email exactly one month prior to your eligibility date. You can do it from that date on regardless whether you get the reminder email or not. So yes, you can go and do the Stage 2 form online and upload documents up to one month prior, but don't expect it to get looked at before you're eligible.

It seems on here, which is a very, very small number of the total people in queue, that PR is granted anywhere from just under a year, to about 16-19 months, and others that wait longer. A few have been lucky to get it within weeks or months of applying, usually by submitting everything when eligible and using the enquiry form. Basically, no idea really how long to expect as it is so across the board here.

No, you don't need to continue to upload documents once you've done it initially.

Plans change. No one expects life to go exactly as planned. Just give them what evidences you have since the grant of the 820 to prove your relationship has continued since then and is continuing.

Thanks for your response
Yeah I checked the date and ill start trying to get my documents ready to submit for a month early -

as im from the UK (A low risk country) does this often mean the process will be faster than higher risk countries?

Also, when I applied for my 820, right before it was granted i got an email requesting for additional information from my Case Officer (s56 form i believe it was called), and it said it was from the immigration dept in Kuala Lumpur. This worried me immensely as id uploaded everything and the kitchen sink for the 820 application, i was worried that as the CO was based in a foreign country, it might not be handled the same way as it would be a 'westerner'... I emailed them promptly asking what they needed as I felt I had uploaded everything, and i never got a response back, but was granted my 820 visa within a few days after this.
My question here is, are COs Australian based for the 801? Im sure i read somewhere that all COs for PR applications are Australian based but cant remember.

thanks for the answer. Firstly, I am very worried, and secondly, I still speak English poorly and probably did not correctly explain .1 I received visa grant 820 on September 5, 2016. 2. I called the department. I was told that I have the right to the second step of the partner visa, when I filled out the form we got to page number 4 and on the top page in the red square is entry THERE IS SUCH entry with my given name and surname (prerequisite visa). I cannot continue to fill out the form. What does this mean, I probably have problems with a visa? thanks again

I don't think the low or high risk country thing matters much anymore in regards to wait times, with the exception of some taking much longer than others to get background/security checks verified. Especially at Stage 2, low risk countries can wait just as long as everyone else.

In regards to where your 820 was processed, while the majority seem to get processed near their location of residence, they call them global processing times for a reason. With all applications being online now, an application can be processed anywhere in the world.

I applied from the U.S. and my offshore application was processed there. I applied in Australia and my TR was processed in my state. I applied for PR and it was processed in " Processing Office: Permanent Partner Processing Centre - Victoria".

Yes, you better do it. Lack of documents may delay the processing time.
