Thank you It was processed in Victoria.
With regards to the enquiry, I know people don't seem to like sharing exactly what they put, but I'm not going to be like that, this is word for word what I wrote -

Good Morning,
My partner and I are looking into purchasing a house here in Perth WA, and simultaneously tying up some ends in the UK, understanding that will really only be possible once my 801 visa has been granted, I was hoping that somebody may be able to take a look at my application? I believe it is decision ready with my uploaded documents, I have also recently uploaded a current AFP report.
Thank you

Also, I never filled out a form 80, nor did I for the 820 stage

Congratulations buttersnips!! That is amazing news! Time to celebrate!

I recently sent the 3rd enquiry now, stating that we've included the information they requested, along with stating we are looking to purchase a house here in WA, my son's Uni semester coming up as well as my advancement being on hold at work until the grant of the 801. I stated that at this stage, we have a decision ready application and politely asked if there was anything else they needed to finish processing our visa. Sent that 2 days ago. Hopefully I'll have good news soon, too. My son leaves tomorrow to return to the US, since we don't have our grant yet. He's planning one more semester over there, then transferring to Uni up in Perth if we have our grant by then. Fingers crossed!

This was a few minutes ago. It hasn't sunken in yet, but my visa has been granted today, finally. No contact from immigration, no phonecall to partner. I only waited 4 months and a few weeks (minus a month if you consider eligibily date) - I am convinced that British passport holders who use the enquiry form will generally get their grants faster, all being well.

To the people who haven't used the enquiry form yet, please consider doing so, there is no way I wouldn't have this by now otherwise.
That's good to hear. Congratulations.

Thanks for replying everyone. I updated docs in may and gonna do it in day or two again. I applied for new AFP. I called immi today and asked the lady on the phone if she can have a look why its taking so long and if i am missing anything. She said she is not allowed to look at full application. Therefore, she cant tell if anything is missing. I mean what a BS. Then she was like its 25 months for %90. It will come soon just wait. Like it was nothin. I tried to import my application on my immi account as i applied through agent. Can somone help me how can i get my app on my immi account as well.
Cheers!

Hi all,

My husband received his 801 grant today without any contact from case officer. We sent an enquiry twice (last month and a week ago) & just received an auto-response.

Sample of enquiry sent:
"Just kindly following up on my 801 visa application. I've used up my max. no. of attachments (100) so I've added under my wife's attachments all my additional supporting documents including my AFP police clearance and latest travel photos. Kindly let me know if you need further information. "

All the best and God bless to everyone who's waiting for 801 grant!!!

Timeline:
11 May 2016 – Arrived in Australia on tourist visa.
29 June 2016 – Applied for partner visa subclass 820 (first stage, temporary).
10 Aug. 2016 – Bridging visa in effect as tourist visa expired.
8 June 2017 – Partner visa subclass 820 granted.
11 July 2018 – Applied for partner visa subclass 801 (second stage, permanent).
7 June 2019 – Partner visa subclass 801 (permanent residency) granted.

Btw, my husband's from Philippines (high risk).

It was a story of yesterday, but still making me happy so far, Also a bit calm down to write. I got my PR yesterday after 15 months. I got requested for the Statement, a proper one as the one we submitted was just a handwritten one. I submitted it in less than 2 hours, and put my hope up to get the PR in another month (max). I didn’t get any response after one month passed, I emailed them with the officer number I got from the request form. They didn’t reply. Last couple weeks, our wedding preparation has rolled a bit more, I submitted contracts and bookings. And on Monday (after 3 months passed), I was kind of super frustrated as seeing many people got their PR after a shorter wait. I sent another email (didn’t use the form) and told them I have more evidence, also it’s been 15 months and 3 months since they requested, please be in touch if they need anything else. 2 days later...I got my PR. Was really panic seeing the email but I read it carefully. It’s been 35 months in total of all the wait, 20 months for 820 and 15 months for 801. It was long but finally over. 🙂

It does annoy me a bit that you're still waiting, but don't give up. Press them again, they can't punish you for that.
I'm sure that you'll have it in the next few weeks... fingers crossed for you

Well, I think that's the last enquiry I'll send, as I don't want to hassle them needlessly. I included the reference number they gave me when they sent me the most recent email asking for my husband's stat dec (which was already there). I've since re-uploaded his stat dec under my name/documents. I am hoping to get a grant by the end of the month since it's the end of the fiscal year...but we'll see. It's been 8 months since eligibility, 9 months since doing the application. So, we haven't been waiting as long as other folks have. We just have to try to be patient. It would be ironic if we end up getting the grant next week, with my son leaving today. But I'll take it and won't complain!! LOL

Not sure if CV and work contract really relevant.
Don't forget joint travel, photos, household bills, police check and sponsor's stat dec as well.
Hi, thanks for your reply. So 801 means uploading everything again? I thought just main documents showing your progress (my career + Master degree = I'm sure they like to see that the future resident is full-time working at university and still educating themselves); mortgage, pictures and travels.
Do we need to write statements as well? Another police check for 801? We just upload new ones (police checks) in December, so I uploaded those.
Congrats everyone who got their PR granted and congrats to others who are still waiting for it. Patience is a virtue!!!
I find dates for 801 very confusing: PR submitted 27.04.2019, and when you click on 'View details' it says 'Application submitted 27.05.2017.' So from when do you then calculate 19-25 months for PR?!
And another enquiry: where do Europeans send enquiry form? The London Departmental office, which is responsible for Europeans, is not on the list. Any suggestions?
Thanks heaps everyone!

The working or education is not really relevant. They do like to see you are still in the relationship, that is the prime importance.

You career, degree, work etc., has little bearing on how strong your relationship is. In fact, on its own it could even be detrimental, if it is considered more important than the relationship.

Joint mortgage, joint pictures, joint travel will all be valuable.

Your PR application date is the date you submitted the combined 820/801.
If yours was 27/5/17, then your final stage documents could be looked at from 27/5/19 (The 801 eligibility date, which is 24 months after the 820 application).

When you say 19-25 months, that refers to the previous months grants where 75% were done in under 19 months from your 801 eligibility date (ie: 27/5/19 as above), and 10% took over 25 months.
Some recent 801 grants have taken 20.3, 3.4, 16.4, 11.1, 12.1, 10.7, 14.7, 4.1 and 11.3 months from the 801 eligibility date.
