How many Form 888 did you hand in this time around?
We just did two this time.

That sounds heavenly hahahha.. Chasing up people to fill in the forms are a pain..

Me and my partner are also not as sociable as most (we both work within the service industry and on our days off we tend to stay home and chill instead of go out and socialize with MORE people) so I'm abit worried about the "social" aspect of our relationship in terms of proof


On another note, Mish, are you still keeping the excel spreadsheet going? If so, could you please pop the linky up again? Thanks!

Hello Guys, after searching on google for some time, I think that I have finally found a good forum to find answers to questions regarding 820 visa for my wife. I am a Permanent resident here (189 visa) and got married after I got PR. My wife has been with me in Australia on Visitor's visa for nearly 4 months.

Since most of you guys have already gone through 820 visa stage, I think you might be the right people to answer my following questions:
1. Are there separate waiting queues for people from different nationalities for 820 visa?
2. Does DIBP waive off waiting period for 820 visa for any special case if we explain them?

801 questions

Hi everyone,
I am currently trying to get everything started to apply for my French partner's 801 visa from here in Sydney. I'm finding it very hard to find out what we need.
I have a couple of questions.
We are in a same-sex relationship so although we are married in France, our marriage isn't recognised here and we are considered de facto. I know at in nsw we can register our relationship but it costs $250 so I am wondering if anyone knows, does it matter if we have done that or not? Are we more garaunteed to have the visa or have it quicker? And does the registered relationship certificate replace having to prove your relationship is ongoing or do you just include it as part of the proof?
The other problem is that we are living for free with my parents and have done since we arrived in Sydney six months ago (we travelled for a few months on the way over). We therefore have no joint bills. The phone is in my name only, and we have no rent, electricity etc. We have grocery payment proof on our seperate bank account statements but not from our joint account. We have a joint account but as we're saving money we have no big purchase from it.
How do we go about proving our relationship and that we're living together etc without all those things?
Thanks for this forum! I found lots of helpful advice while applying for the first part of this process!

This thread is in relation to 801 visa only. Any posts that are non-related to this topic will either be moved or deleted.

Don't think they separate waiting queues in regards of the nationalities.
If I am not wrong, I think DIBP website mentioned some thing about waive off 820 visa, get 801 directly. You can give them a call.

1. No, there are not different waiting queues. That said, people from low risk countries sometimes have less of a wait than people from high risk countries simply because being from a high-risk country typically means DIBP will be doing more external security checks.

2. Not really. When you can apply, you can try giving DIBP information on "compelling and compassionate circumstances" as to why they should consider processing your visa more quickly, but this is unlikely to be successful unless your circumstances are REALLY exceptional. Having to be away from your partner or your children, having difficulty getting a job and supporting your family, or having one partner with an illness have all been circumstances we've seen people notify Immi about and Immi has not speeded up their processing time at all.

Regarding what the person above me said about the waiver of the 820 and going to the 801 directly - even if you DID qualify for this, you'd still be waiting the same period as someone waiting on an 820. However, from what you've said you might not qualify (I can't tell for sure how long you've been married from your post, but it doesn't sound like very long?). In order to have your wife skip the 820 and go straight to the 801, you would have to have been married or in a de facto relationship to the exclusion of all others for 3 years or more, or 2 years or more and have a child together (and that child must already have been born when you apply. Pregnancy is not enough).

Hi! Does your partner already hold the 820 visa? That's what this thread is for - people who already hold the 820 and are waiting on the second-stage 801. It sounds like you'll be applying for the 820? I'd suggest starting your own thread - you have a lot of questions here and more people might see it if it's in your own thread or at least one that reflects the visa you'll actually be applying for, like one of the 820 threads.

Hello lovely people
I will be ready to apply for 801 in 6 or so months... is the process quite as intense as the first one? As much information or a cover of a lot of the basics from the previous?

My main question really if someone could please help... Granted Partner Visa 820 and we submitted as de facto partners, we are since engaged but don't plan to be married until a later date next year.. it's not really a change in circumstances as we're still defacto.. and we aren't getting married this year ... we're engaged :-) but we've made no wedding plans and don't have a date or anything wed just like it to be at a later date. But we're still defacto

Is this something that requires notification of change in circumstances?! or not because it's the same visa that you'd apply for. And. we're still defacto and we're not married or anything like that sort of change

Thanks everyone in advance ��

X

Simply being engaged with no actual marriage date, certainly doesn't seem like a change of circumstance. Read their definition, but from memory it's the substantial changes they ask about, ie change of address, change of circumstances, work etc..

Applying for 801

Hi, thanks for your reply.
My partner had the temporary resident 309 de facto visa. We applied for it and got it in France and then arrived in Australia to activate it in August and are now getting everything ready to apply for the 801 per ant resident visa in a couple of months.
I just really wanted to know if we should or shouldn't register our relationship. All the govt website says is that we need fryer proof that we are a couple still, it doesn't say how or what we needn't to do that.
Any advice would be great!
