Hi everyone,

Been a follower and recently decided to make my first post

Submitted 820/801: September 2015 (Married in April 2015)

Received a call from DIBP in December 2016 (Including my husband at the same time - FYI it was no caller ID)

I managed to pick up, however my husband couldn't as he was working.
Question asked was
- How many people living in this address
- What's your spouse DOB & my DOB too
- Who are your in-laws & where they lived
However, I couldn't talk on the phone for long and actually had to cut the phone call short due to being called while at work.
They have made no reattempt of calling my husband again either. This part got us extremely worried as we never heard people being called at this visa stage.

Furthermore, the time that they called us was one day before we were about to go Malaysia for a short holiday between December 2016 and Jan 2017.

820 Request for more document: December 2016 - Had 28 days, but was able to postpone due to us going overseas, so they postponed till January 2017 and had 28 days to provide from there. We sent everything in by end of Jan.

820 Granted: March 2017

801 Eligible: September 2017

801 Applied: September 2017

Currently waiting for 801.

This wait has been extremely exhausting on us. Especially the wait for 820 dragging on for 16 months! And people out there only wait between few days - 12 months for 820. Probably due to the high-risk country I'm applying under which is Vietnam.
I'm praying 801 wont be as long as our 820, but so hard when immigration every year increases the process time

Belated congrats on your grant of your 820, and best of luck for your 801. However, I haven't heard of anyone getting an 820 grant in a few days for quite some time...even in only a few months. When I got my 820 back in January 2017, the least amount of time I saw someone wait was around 9 months. Mine was granted in 15 months, and the wait times seem to be only getting higher in my 10 month absence from the forum! While people from high risk countries sometimes wait longer, we're all in the same boat for the most part.

The grants of 820's in a few days are over. Even the PMV to 820 which use to be really fast (a couple of days to a couple of months) are taking alot longer these days ... I believe that majority are a few months minimum these days.

I think a few people here and there get lucky and get their visa's granted quicker than everyone else but as you know that is very rare the majority of us are in it for the long haul.

I agree that the wait is just getting longer and longer. We just have to cross our fingers that the citizenship rules don't get changed as it seems unfair to make someone wait 15 months to get their 801 granted and then another 4 yeas for citizenship.

Cannot agree more about this wait time. It adds so much stress, especially when it comes to looking for a job, so hard to find a place that would accept TR.

Also, I am going to Vietnam for a holiday in Jan, with my husband. However, we will be returning on different date, I will be coming back earlier than him due to work as they would not allow me to leave more than 2 weeks. He will be coming back about 2 weeks later as he will be on holiday with his brother & cousins over there. Will that affect my 801?
- We do have proof of my leave form only being approved for 2 weeks.

Not if you have communication while apart to show DIBP. A friend her husband went overseas to his home country for 6 weeks while his PR was processing and it was still granted.

Yeah definitely will have communication! He will have a vietnam sim card and usually on our phone bills it shows up what country destination you have called to.

However, i'm just in this dilemma of whether to call or facetime him since I want to see his face, and facetime does not have any sort of bills except for only screenshotting the date you have called, but we will have solid evidence of communication on my phone bill during our time apart.

Furthermore, I'm just thinking, we're heading into our 3 year wedding anniversary in April 2018 and do you think the DIBP will take this into consideration?

Since you can apply for 801 straightaway if you are married for 3 years. However, we have applied for the combined 820/801 back in Sept 2015.

There is no issue screenshotting Facetime call logs etc.

The 3 years is and at 820 application time of requirement. You will find alot of people who are married will celebrate their 3rd wedding anniversary while waiting as alot get married just before lodging the 820.

I've just been procrastinating over my visa and was looking at my 801 application and just realised I've added my partner as the authorised recipient.

At the time of application I thought it meant as well as the myself who could they contact but it actually reads instead of me. Does this mean my partner will be sent my decision email? I would like it to be me but i don't want to withdraw him as a recipient incase it looks bad!

Also the question below is worded oddly it asks
"The authorised recipient does not agree to electronic communication" Yes/No

If we agree to electronic communication would we select "No" as it says "not agree" ?

Thanks in advance!

Yes if you've supplied all the required info and the first you hear from them is the grant then it'll just go to your partner. I was nominated as the recipient on my husband's visa app and I was the only one who got the grant notification email. Of course if your partner uses gmail (maybe other email providers have this as well, but I only know about gmail) you can set up a filter to automatically forward any emails from immi to yourself.

if you want electronic notification then select Yes.
