Thanks in advance.
We didn't for the 801 application, and that was granted OK.

It would be interesting to see if these were processed in Australia or outsourced. All 3 agents I have spoken with tell me it is impossible to get an 820 visa in under 2 years. Unless there are extenuating circumstances.

What was happening was people were applying for the partner visa and then months after submission claiming there was domestic violence and in these cases, the visa was granted immediately. This was regularly used and after the visa was granted everything would be back to normal with the sponsor, It was a system rort.
I'm told this is why the male sponsor has to make an application to be a sponsor so he can be checked out for any history of domestic violence.

Realistically whats the earliest a person waiting 801 approval from a low risk country should put an enquiry in? I ask because as mentioned previously, my friend from the same country had her 801 granted after 5/6 months after using the enquiry form a few weeks prior to the grant...

I know for a fact that I've uploaded at least twice as much information as her, quality and quantity wise.

Do you know the dates for that one, the Eligibility date and application date too.

I have seen a few at 5 or 6 months between application date and grant. Ours was about that too, also granted in February. But still 9 months after eligibility date.

This was an 801 Visa, not an 820. That sounds like a really strange thing for an agent to say, also - My 820 was granted in 11 months and there have been several people on this forum who have had it granted in under 6. A lot of people getting 801s in under 10 months so far this year, also.

I couldn't tell you the exact dates, but I'm sure she applied in late August (a month early) and it was granted in Feb.

This is what makes me suspicious and I have asked the agent to investigate and see if there is an underlying reason why we are being subjected to all this expense and stress. There must be some "Other Reason" that we are not being told about. If someone is screwing us around I want blood.

Immigration say that 75% of 801 application are done in under 19 months, from eligibility, and will respond with a standard reply if asked about the processing time before that.

If we have a genuine reason to make an enquiry, then it might be worth it.

What was in their enquiry ?

This doesn't sound consistent, considering a LOT of people who have used the enquiry form on here hadn't been waiting 19 months, and soon after were granted their 801. When considering how short my friend had been waiting, I was genuinely surprised that she got a grant just weeks after submitting an enquiry.

After I told her about the enquiry form, and how she should give it a go (partly for my own curiosity as I was in the process of applying myself) she basically said that she had a property in the UK that she would like to sell but would like to get her PR first before doing that, understandably. She wasn't intending on selling, I think it's just the first thing that came to her mind, really. I believe a few days before the visa was granted, they contacted her partner via phone call asking if they were still together, he said yes, and then asked when she would get her visa, and they told him that they were processing it today.

My understanding is there are 3 things:[*]The nature of the household[*]The social aspects of the relationship[*]nature of the commitment to each other

The original submitting agent had indicated that form the documents submitted on these 3 issues he could see no issues.
