What JandE has suggested (making an enquiry through the Partner Processing Centre) makes sense.

Whether you should apply online again? I don't know the answer to that question.

Send an enquiry before thinking about that.

I assume you don't have access to your immi account online.

My husband is from a high risk country.
Just to compare your application to others who applied for the 820 at the same time.

Three 801 grants from 820's submitted when you did yours:

820 Applied: September 2015 (Paper application from Vietnam)
820 Granted: March 2017
801 Eligible: September 2017
801 Applied: September 2017 (6 months after 820 granted, but 24 months after 820 applied)
801 Granted: March 2018

820 applied: 07/09/15.
820 granted: 05/10/16.
801 Eligible: 07/09/17.
801 applied: 07/09/17, (11 months after 820 granted, but 24 months after 820 applied).
801 Granted: 14/05/19

820 applied: 14/09/15.
820 granted: 28/03/17.
801 Eligible:14/09/17.
801 applied: 18/09/17, (6 months after 820 granted, but 24 months after 820 application).
801 Granted: 24/05/19


Our own application:
820 applied: 14/05/16.
820 Granted: 18/08/16.
801 Eligible: 14/05/18.
801 applied: 04/08/18 (3 months after eligible to apply, 24 months after 820 granted, but 27 months after 820 applied)
801 Granted: 20/02/19.

You applied for your 801, 2 months before we did.

Is your agent a MARA registered agent?

You say from a high risk country. What country is that? (the above examples include Vietnam and Philippines)

I would suggest contacting immigration and maybe mentioning that your agent seems to have given you incorrect information, and that you are worried about how well your application has been submitted, especially as others, who applied in the same month, were finalised between 5 and 19 months before today.
Ask if anything is missing from your application, so you can submit anything required.

Partner (Permanent) Processing Centres Enquiry Form
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...s-enquiry-form

Thank you! He's from Cambodia. And Yes she is MARA Registered.
I've become a bit worried and I ended up contacting the agent briefly. She was quite abrupt and said that it was '2-3 years from when we applied ..' I proceeded to tell her it was '17-24 months since eligibility date on immi website ' and she said that ' whatever the site says, but it was 2-3 years...and that wasn't her problem as she doesn't control the processing time.'

I'm really having doubts about our agent. I'm definitely going to contact via the enquiry form and maybe look into a second opinion from a migration lawyer?

And no we don't. We haven't done anything online. No real substantial confirmation from the migration agent either about whether immi received our documents (such as client number or ID). Purely verbal confirmation from her.

Maybe her own experiences have been 2 to 3 years, especially if she delays submitting applications?

In my view an agent can help in controlling processing times. They get paid to submit the best application they can, based on their experience and knowledge. I would guess that the best applications would be processed faster than the poor quality ones.

She's been a bit vague about the times. She said, when we applied that it was 12-18 months. But now she says it's even longer because of the government , which I understand. But her words don't correlate with other people's circumstances or the immi processing time on their website. She also said our documents are good and complete and there's nothing more to add.

I personally don't feel it is just the government's fault, when most 801's are still processed at about the same speed as they were in the past.
  • In June 2018, when you applied, 75% of 801 applications were processed in under 16 Months.
  • In August 2019, it had changed to 75% of 801 applications were processed in under 17 Months.
When more visas are applied for, it seems logical that there will be some delays, due to the increase in application numbers.

Also, when more applications are not fully completed, and immigration have to chase the applicants, or the agents, for more information, it might be the faut of the application, rather than the government.

She seems to be deflecting blame.

I do believe she's giving a long ballpark time frame to stop us from asking further. I have contacted a migration lawyer and they said it's according to immi website so 17-24 months is correct (not 2-3 years). They also told me it's actually from the date of lodgement (so it's 17 months for us). But as you said 75% gets processed within the 17 month timeframe so it's already quite long, and we will need to contact immi.
