I did send an enquiry after about 3 months, but got the standard reply email. The reason I sent one so soon after lodgement is because I was going for a higher position at work, but need my 801 perm resident for the position. That's since come and gone; I didn't get the position due to my status. At this stage, I'm just waiting on my oldest son's FBI check (should be done any day now); he's been at University in the USA for over 12 months now while we're waiting for our perm visa, so we're supplying his police check before they ask. Once we get it, I'll send another enquiry. I've also been updating with pictures, utlity bills, etc every few months to show our ongoing relationship.

Thats interesting. A shame you didn't get a response as I've said before my friend got hers granted recently after using the form just 5 months after submitting.

I'm considering using the enquiry form myself (ive been waiting 3 months). Do you recommend against this? Not really sure what the safest thing would be to say within the enquiry also

I really wasn't going to do an enquiry only 3 months in...but as I was trying for a higher position at work, I had a valid reason for asking them. It didn't do a bit of good. I honestly think 3 months is too soon to send an enquiry. As I said, I'm waiting on my son's FBI check, and then I'll send an enquiry asking if they need any additional information, etc. We (like most others) are stuck until we get PR: waiting to buy a house, I can't advance in my career, my son is waiting on PR to come back to Australia for Uni, etc. I'm not overly concerned right now, but am really hoping I'll get the 801 in about the same amount of time it took for the 820 (7 months). I'd be completely thrilled with that outcome.

I understand how frustrating it all can be and really hope that you get the visa granted as soon as possible.
I haven't personally looked into buying a house yet, as I'm not PR, but to my understanding it's pretty much impossible to get a mortgage without PR, is this correct?

There are some lenders that will do that.

Not true. Myself and my partner have a mortgage and I’m not a permanent resident yet. I believe as long as one of you has the means to stay here and pay it, you’ll be ok

It is very much lender dependant.

My bank won't do it with my wife non PR, even though I am.

And I wasn't going to change banks just for that purpose,

Oh, you can find a lender to do a mortgage without PR. However, my husband and I are first time home buyers (we wouldn't be able to utilise the benefits of this), and I don't want to have to pay the foreign taxes on buying a house. Additionally, our bank won't do it without PR. There are a few reasons why we have to wait until I have PR before we buy a house.

Hi guys, just a quick information for people want to buy a house while waiting for 801. We bought our place while my wife is on 820, we are still waiting for our 801 approval.
Our lender: CBA
Title: only in my name (Australian citizen)

Our lawyer advised us to put the title in my name for now, until my wife's 801 is approved (to avoid the extra stamp duty & access the first home buyer stamp duty reduction - 3 yrs ago). Once we receive wife's PR approval, transfer half of the title to her (special condition - no further stamp duty VIC), but it will incur solicitor fees.

If you really want to buy a place together while the market is low, get a good advice and you should be able to do it (please note stamp duty is different between states).

I just want this part of my life over with. I started my PMV application in 2014 and it's been sooooo long.
I feel you, it’s totally a mess with this system. NOT FAIR

You certainly can get mortgages without PR, ours approved with amount over 1 mil. By saying that it is depending on Banks - some do some don't. We are with CBA.

However, you won't get benefits of first home buyers and may be subjected to pay more stamp duties in some states. As far as I know it is exempted for 820 visa holders in NSW but you will have to pay 8% surcharge on your share of property in QLD and 3% in TAS which is totally a pain.

I feel so bad for people who missed a lot of opportunities because of the visa situation especially those in education industry or public sector. They should accept visa 820 as obviously we want to stay but what can you do
