Ok last thing I need help on (before submitting, anyway) -

Give details of the nature of the commitment the applicant and the sponsor have to each other

I'm not sure what to put here, just because I feel it hasn't changed much since what I initially wrote for the 820 application.
I won't copy and paste this over, but to summarise I say how we are both committed to each other, talk about how our forming wasn't rushed and how we decided over a period of time that we wanted to live together in perth, mention superannuation, getting to know her family, how we intend to stay together, how we eventually want to have children and a house etc (though putting these worries me as I often feel like immigration could use it against me like "well, why havent you yet?" if the visa takes FOREVER to be granted), mentioned what our upcoming plans together were, etc etc.

In a couple of the other categories I found myself referencing the old one and then just rewriting the same stuff as before. Is this typical or could this be problematic?

Will it be ok if my partner (the sponsor) does that, although we are waiting a decision on my 801?
Sorry for doubling up on my inquiry, I am not sure if my post made sense? I was just wondering if its ok for the sponsor to fill out a 888 witness form for another couple whilst we are waiting on a decision for my 801 application?

About this form 888
This form must be completed by a person who:
• knows the visa applicant and their partner or fiancé(e) and the
history of their relationship;
• is at least 18 years of age; and
• is an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident.

That is from the form 888 itself.

If that applies, then there should be no issue.

Thank you, yes we do know the couple very well.

Hey all,

We submitted documents for my 801 in May 2018 and I was thinking of getting my AFP police check sorted just so that it is there and ready whenever a CO looks at our file.

I have recently heard of people being granted their 801 without submitting an updated police check though. My last police check was for the 820 in 2017 so is out of date now.

Has anyone been granted their 801 without submitting a recent police check? Curious to hear before I spend an extra $100...

Here's what the website states:

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. We only accept complete disclosure National Police Certificates issued by the Australian Federal Police. We do not accept standard disclosure certificates or national police certificates issued by Australian state or territory police. For immigration purposes, Australian police certificates are valid for 12 months from the date of issue.

I haven't supplied new AFPs. They may ask for them; but, I've seen a few people get grants without new ones.

Thank you for helping me.
Yes, I did the application online.
And the eligibility date is from the day they sent me the email letting me know that I can continue with the 2nd stage process (801)

So after 24 months of waiting for a decision on our 801.
My hubby and I decided to submit an enquiry form to the department, last month.
And yesterday we received an email requesting our presence for an interview.
Personally I'm really excited about it because we won't be waiting an further and if they'll be asking personal questions about our relationship then we are good to go. Has anyone ever had this experience or any idea what other questions will be asked?

I didn't think they did many interviews for the 801. What country are you from?

We just submitted an enquiry too, although not been waiting as long as you.
