I'm also playing the waiting game. I'm Canadian, living with my Aussie partner. I lodged my application in November 2018 and uploaded all required supporting documentation within a month except my medical and police certificate. Just uploaded my police certificate last week. I am waiting for a CO to be assigned before doing medical.

I have only been with my partner for a year and a half so I think that could be why it's taking so long. But we have a lease together, utilities bills, record of contact while apart, joint credit card, joint travel etc so I feel like my application is pretty solid.

I was just informed at work though that although my manager wants to make me permanent, HR has advised her that I can only be offered contract. Super frustrating given that my BVB has zero work restrictions. Anyone else have this problem?
If I had to make a guess why the process's been taking so long for many of us this past year, I'd put a pin on this news:

"Between 1 July 2018 and 31 May 2019, more than 132,000 citizenship by conferral applications have been approved, up from 70,000 in the same period last year. This represents an increase of 88 per cent."

I personally believe that a lot of the Immi officers had to spend a lot of time to work on getting these citizenship applications approved.

I've been waiting since August 2018! I'm not sure who really knows why it's taking long. We've been living together for nearly 5 years now and I believe our application is solid too.

No CO contact yet.
Only received a email on 1 year since application date saying ‘we have not forgot about your application’

Terrible wait time.

My wife applied on 1st October 2018 and when we got an email on 1st October 2019 we got very excited, only to see that it was just a reminder that the application is still pending... as if we needed reminding.

Hi All
Just an update of my journey with spouse visa application. Iam currently on a student visa.

Applied for 820: 22 August 2018
Did medicals : 7th Sept 2018

Assigned and Contacted by CO:10th October 2019.

CO asked for one of my daughter to do her medicals, since she did not do her medicals with us at that time. It seems the other medicals are still valid though its slightly over 1 year since we did them

Sponsor application on IMMI: Indicated "approved"

My IMMI application on my account Indicated " Initial assessment"

Hope good news to come soon

At least, the immi still sending you a reminder. I applied 820/801 since 10 August 2018 but no news or reminder. Documents all uploaded, even I have no space left. I'm pregnant 6 months and my daughter is 6yo an Australian citizen. Probably I'll just wait until the decision comes up. Finger crossed

Hi All

Very comforting scrolling through this page as so many are in the same boat and this can be so very stressful!

A couple of questions i'm hoping people might have the answers for...

My partner and I have just applied for 820/801 in Sep (obviously still waiting to be assigned a CO). He is currently on a student visa active until Nov 2020; however, he will finish his study in Dec of this year. I understand that the BVA that he has been granted and that is currently not active, will come into effect in Nov 2020 once his Student Visa expires naturally... However, my question is: as he will have finished his study in Dec of this year will he then be granted full work rights/Medicare prior to Nov 2020? Is anyone aware of how we go about investigating/any application process for this?

I know we are in a better position applying for 820/801 when we did rather than waiting until Nov next year as that would have put us however many months further behind but it will be highly frustrating if his work/medicare rights do not change until such time.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Hi Justine88, it probably depends on exact terms of the student visa but I'm pretty sure most student visas will no longer be valid once full-time course is completed. That is the position I am in at least. Once your partner finishes course, if the student visa is dependant on being enrolled, then that visa will end and will automatically go onto BVA. I was advised this after speaking with someone on the phone at DIBP, as I was having to take compassionate leave from studies while my Aussie partner was sick, and I was concerned about my visa status. If you are concerned then speak to a migration agent or your partner might have access to visa advice through their education institution.
The BVA conditions are all set out in the paperwork sent to you and also details available on the IMMI website. Hope that's of some help! I applied for 820 on 25 Oct 2018 and my student visa expires 22 Nov 2019. Still waiting to be assigned a CO and haven't done medical yet as can't afford to do it twice!

Good news, finally my parents got the CO assigned and she requested for AFP clearance and health check. Hopefully my dad will get the 801 straight away after 820 being approved as they have married for more than 40 years.

820 Applied: 07 Jun 2018
AFP clearance 1st time: 07 Jun 2018
CO assigned: 14 Oct 2019
AFP clearance 2nd time: 21 Oct 2019
Medical check: 22 Oct 2019
820/801 Approval: waiting patiently :-)

Can I just as a quick question, by the way, when we do the application: would you use two separate Immi accounts for applicant and sponsor? Thanks

I think you can create one immi account and lodge for both applicant and sponsor. I created 1 account and use it to lodge for my parents with no problem, both partner and citizenship etc.

Think of immi account as one big bag, where u store anything u want in there
In other words, u just need one account for any visa type you apply for yourself or someone , whether in the present or in the future.

It makes it even easier to login and keep track of all visa processes for future references
