Long time lurker but first time poster

Has anyone had much luck with complaining to DIBP?

On Aug 16th I will be waiting a year for my 801 despite all the documentation they sent me stating 6-8 months.

I have emailed Immi and just gotten a standard copy/paste reply that wait times are now up to 12-18 months (at time of email) and now I see the wait time has grown again!

I have been with my partner for 10 years this year, so we have plenty of supporting documentation.

We have just purchased a plot of land which has had to go into my partner's name as we were told that despite me also working FT in a permanent role, I couldn't go on the mortgage due to not having PR. When we initially put our deposit down we thought I would have my visa by now and mortgage wouldn't be a problem.

Has anyone else been in this situation?

Plenty of people have complained, but it doesnt seem to speed things up much.
We just have to wait. I too couldnt go on the mortgage because of my visa status, we'll just add me on when I'm at PR

Not sure if this had anything to do with it, but my eligibility date was July 8, 2016 and I was quoted 8-12 months when I applied and I sent them a complaint message using the link provided in this thread a few days after 12 months passed (July 8, 2017). I told them that I was disappointed in the increased processing time and that I hadn't been given any updates or communication from them at all. Didn't even get a reply to my complaint but about three weeks after that I received an email that my PR was granted! I don't know if it helped but it certainly didn't hurt.

If you have been with your partner for 10 years why didn't you get your 801 when the 820 waa granted?

Many of people have complained very few have hotten their visa not long after complaining.

I have no idea. We have supplied so much evidence it almost seemed like overkill. We gave them stat decs from Australian friends and family. We have travelled extensively with each other, have joint bank accounts, on leases etc. so we have plenty of evidence. I have never actually spoken to a human about my visa, only received copy/paste answers in response to emails so I don't know.

I just filled everything out online, paid the money and have been waiting ever since...

You do not have a 820 visa? If you are waiting on the spouse visa you need the 820 waiting thread as this thread is for those that already have a 820 visa.

Also the 820 thread you may get more relevant information ie. Waiting times/standard requests etc.

Ahh okay I was not sure as you did not specifically say you have a 820 visa. It is very odd you were never granted 820 & 801 at the same time if you have a 10 year relationship.

Unfortunately it is just luck of the draw.

Yes, I originally applied for 820 in 2014 and was eligible for 801 last year

Hopefully the wait won't be too much longer!

My partner and I are already talking about flights and visits for that 6 month period but we don't know if this will affect DIBP's decision.

thanks
