Better to wait until 3 years to apply for 801/820?

We are currently in the process of trying to bring my Austrian girlfriend down under.

I have read that if applying after the relationship has reached 3 years, both the temp 820 and permanent 801 will be issued simultaneously. Is this a guarantee, or a possibility?

Our relationship will enter the 3 year mark in 8 months. Is it wiser for us to wait until then to apply, since this may shave 16 months (2 years - 8 months) off the process?

Edit: I actually meant to ask about the 309/100 offshore (always getting them confused) but I believe the conditions are the same

It is not a given and depends on your evidence being more than 3 years - often in all catagories.

Many things can change in 8 months.

If it were a few weeks away, maybe even a month or two, I'd give it a shot and wait (It's not a guarantee). 8 months? No way. That's a long time to wait for something that might not happen, not to mention any changes that could occur in the process in such a long time.

Also, you'd need to upload de facto evidence of your relationship of at least 3 years prior to applying.

Thanks for the advice - we will proceed with the application as soon as possible in that case!
