Same thing happened to a couple we know. After waiting 2+ years for the 820, they granted both on the same day...

Congratulations on reaching PR.

Was your 801 application date really 2019? A year after eligibility?

Where is your husband from?

I got green card in mail without contacting anybody, the medicare card printed 1 day after visa grant as what i can see on the letter, even though my current card expires in Oct 2019

What happens now that I got my 801 visa granted? Does that amount to Permanent Residency?

When I do a VEVO check for myself it says Visa Class BS / 801 but there is no mention of permanent residency, how will employers know I am a permanent resident when there is no mention of that on VEVO?

Also, do I need to keep collecting proof of our ongoing relationship? I have sooo much printed paperwork dating back from when we first started collecting for 820 and I wanna get rid of it because it was solely for the purpose of the visa and its taking up space in my drawers, do I still need to keep it?

Yes, that's permanent residency. In VEVO there's a section that says "Visa Description: Resident".

You no longer have to do anything with partner visas. Only thing you need to remember now is your travel facility period and to apply for an RRV if you plan on traveling after 5 years (unless you have citizenship by then).

Thank you. So I guess this Visa is valid for 5 years then, and afterwards I need to apply for RRV if I want to travel?

When am I eligible to apply for citizenship?

The visa is valid indefinitely unless you accidentally replace it with another visa. Only the travel facility expires. The idea is to stop people from getting PR and then not actually residing here or having ties to the country.

You can leave Australia freely regardless of the travel facility, but it's getting back in that would be the problem. If you want to reenter, you need to either be within that initial five year period after the grant of the 801 or be within the travel period of the RRV.

You'll have to use the citizenship calculator: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...nce-calculator

Thanks. Yes it was just over 11 months after eligibility. I hadn't looked on the forum for a while and when I last looked, very few seemed to be getting PR in less than a year, so we didn't step on the gas for a long time. But mainly the problem was trying to do anything with a small child who gets upset if anyone uses an electronic device. And she won't sleep unless I go to bed at the same time. There's only one day a week when she's at childcare but I'm at home and that's the day I try to get every type of chore done. So it kept getting put off.. maybe also because we were so sick of the whole visa process after the PMV and the 820. Now that I see how quick some of the 801 grants have been lately, I wish we had got it in earlier. But still,12.5 months after eligibility is pretty reasonable compared to what some people have had to wait.

My husband is from Germany. Both our previous grants took 9 months processing but I thought this one would be longer. It's encouraging to see some people get their grants in under 9 months. I do hope citizenship processing gets a bit quicker, for when we reach that milestone.

We are waiting too. People who lodged 801 between Jan 2018 - Nov 2018 are getting visa grants atm.

Our timeline:

Applied 820: 6 May 2016
Granted 820: 5 Dec 2017
Applied 801 : 27 April 2018
Granted 801: 13+ months waiting ...
Sent 3 emails to them last month about priority processing due to employer asking for PR status, no response yet. They don't care I guess...

How many waiting who lodged 801 between Jan 2018 - June 2018 ?
