Hi all, we have received a request for my husband to leave Australia so a decision can be made on his 309 visa. Skyblewbrewer may know but I haven’t seen a case where that request has come in and the applicant hasn’t then been issued the visa on leaving the country so we are excited. For reference we applied July 2017, received the auto your application is progressing email July 2018, had an RFI in October 2018, got all the info to them early November 2018 and have just gotten the leave for a decision notification. It’s been a very long road, longer than I ever thought it would be, but I also know others applied before us and haven’t heard after responding to RFIs (Aztec, SpaceDog etc) so fingers crossed you hear something more soon and fingers crossed for the others still in process that additional resources are added to the DC office. I’ll confirm once the decision has been made and hopefully the visa has actually been issued.

I wonder if the aussie government see having two visa applications at the same time as an act of desperation, and therefore, negatively?

My biggest worry is, that my partner comes to Aus on a ETA tourist visa, applies for the 820, but is unable to work. I still hear conflicting information on work rights while waiting for a decision on 820 and having entered on a ETA.
I've never seen anything stating you can't have multiple applications in the system at one time, but I'm no professional. Best to create a new thread asking the question and hopefully an RMA would respond.

If you meet the requirements for the visa, you meet the requirements. Not sure how it would be seen negatively, if anything I would think it shows more commitment to your partner and could be extra evidence.

There are plenty of people on here that applied from tourist visas and the BVA came with work rights. That information was listed on the old version of the website as well but not anymore. Maybe they don't want people applying onshore so they don't broadcast that information.

Here's a link to read it in the migration regulations, that 820/801 applicants awaiting a decision will have a BVA with nil visa conditions and unlimited work. As far as I understand this, it's still in effect. Of course, one should always read their grant letter and verify the conditions specified to them.

Congrats. Hope to hear something soon too. Starting to push the max end of the processing time. I did upload some additional documents to see if that would spur anything.

Hi all! We received first contact this morning!!! Request for new police checks (ours expired in August) and a birth certificate for my sponsor. SO EXCITING!!!! We weren't expecting to hear anything until January. Fingers crossed for fast turnaround and grant! Definitely looks like things are moving.

Congrats MzSkeptica, that's great news. We have just submitted a letter from our celebrant, listing the location and date of our wedding (which we hadn't set due to the rapidly changing processing times). Hoping for a fast turnaround ourselves. My partner's medical has run out already but a new one wasn't requested on the RFI. I'm wondering if there will likely be another RFI for that. We applied 9th November, the medical was 12 months old on the 1st, and we received the RFI on the 8th.
Has anyone had multiple requests for info?

No agent

We did all the checks around May. We gave it a 5 month buffer.

No request for further info was made

We kinda stumbled our way through the process. We thought it was loaded decision ready but kept finding things we hadn't included like the form 80. that was the last thing we uploaded and that was done only a couple of months ago.
