What exactly are you worried about? And when was your eligibility date?

I think some April and May 2019 applications have come through recently. There are a few of us from June 2019 who haven’t heard anything either.

Keep in mind that some processing centres may get more applications than others so they might be a bit slower. Some applications may also be more straight forward than others and their evidence may be easier to cross check. If you have submitted sufficient good quality evidence I wouldn’t worry too much if you are still within the global processing times &#x1f642;
I think my eligibility date was may 2019 as well... It may just be my anxiety as well as I got a panic attack earlier. I am just overly worried as we are on the process of buying a house, and I don't want to leave my fiancť paying off the house by himself in case I don't get approved...&#x1f625;
It’s definitely not an easy process to go through. I am pretty anxious myself and can’t wait for it all to be over. Hang in there! I am sure you will get the good news soon &#x1f91e;&#x1f3fb;

In 2018-19, about 9% of the 801s were refused. Many probably were where the relationship has ended. 1 in 10 relationships not lasting 3 or 4 years is not unusual.

As long as you have submitted all the requirements of reasonable proof of continuing relationship, and not submitted fake documentation, then you are probably OK.

Most of is will have worried, but most of us have genuine relationships and eventually get the visas.

Have you submitted the sponsor declaration? Some people forget that, and are delayed while they wait for it.

Dear JandE,

Thanks - I had to quickly check and it was there lol. I wonder if adding new docs, i.e. land purchase and building contract would delay it? Its just that I've been uploading them as they come just to "update" them too

Probably not more than 1 upload per month, unless something really special in joint names.

But some applications do seem to get finalised shortly after an update with something special. Maybe special enough to prove a relationship beyond doubt.

A land purchase and building contract, in joint names, would in my opinion, be something to upload immediately.

I did this last December as I thought it would be a good idea to keep them in the loop.

I suppose I can also inquire about the status of this but I am not sure if it's a good idea as it is still within the processing time. I guess patience will indeed be tested

What is your timeline? 820 application and grant dates?

I saw that you were considering the PMV in 2015. Did you do that or go to the 820 straight away?

We got the 801 last year, after 9.3 months, shortly after uploading her new Philippine passport in the married name.

We were but ended up travelling heaps because my fiancť was taking his postgraduate degree and I decided to visit as much as possible. We went from 600 to 820 on 2017, got the 820 on 2018, then got eligibility for 801 last year around May.

Hey everyone,

Just want to get some clarification around Bridging visa Bs and what effect they have on the 820/801 application if any.

My partner (applicant) has told me everytime he applies for a BVB before we go on holiday that once the BVB comes into effect our 820/801 application is put on hold while the BVB is active. Is this correct? I've always just assumed he'd understand the rules better than I because being an Australian citizen you don't have to have much interaction with the immigration department

Usually we go overseas for a few weeks at a time but the BVB has been granted for up to 3-6 months in our experience.

The reason I ask is that since our application was submitted back in Sept 2017 and the temp visa was granted while the application is processed we've applied for 3 BVBs, which have been granted for a total of 12 months.

I've noticed though that our global processing time started out around 20-27 months and last year was 22-29 months but dropped back down to 22-27 months this year.

Also now that we are past the 2 year mark for submitting our application are we able to apply for 801? even though we haven't had an 820 approval or should we just wait a little longer and hope they approve both at the same time? We provided updated health/police checks back in January so we were hoping we will finally see some progress and it would save us the trouble

There is a lot of confusing conflicting information here. The BVB doesn't put it on hold.
You say the temp Visa had been granted. But the 820 hasn't been granted.
The 820 is the temp Visa.
You can't start the 801 permanent process if the 820 hasn't been granted
