Don't worry about the Sponsor status, mine still says submitted, but the 820 visa was granted in 2016. We have the 801 now. Not sure if my status is still submitted, haven't looked recently.

If you have supplied everything they need, you may not hear from them until you get the grant. Sometimes an email is sent after 12 months to say it is still being looked at.

Not everyone gets interviewed.

I've seen some people wait a year before being reminded to submit some things.
Others get asked faster.


The last three UK submitted 820's, that I have seen on forums, took 15/17 months to be finalised.

Applied May 18, RFI May 19, (after 12 months). Grant Sept 19. Total 16 months
Applied July 18, RFI May 19, (after 10 months). Grant Dec 19. Total 17 months
Applied Sep 18, RFI Dec 19, (after 15 months). Grant Dec 19. Total 15 months

Things are changing for sponsors, but I am not certain on the current status.
It used to be that sponsors were required to provide police checks only where a minor was included in the application
Then there was talk about all sponsors needing this, but I feel this hasn't been finalised yet.

I'm also Australian, my wife from HK. I agree with your conclusion on the HK police check - we can't get it unless we have a letter from a govt department with the person's name on it saying that a police certificate is needed.

For Australia I requested my own police check before we submitted the application just in case there is something on there from my distant past that I didn't know about or didn't remember! (Perhaps I'm over-cautious. It came back completely clean, as expected.)

On the Home Affairs website page about getting 820 visas (the forum won't let me post a link, sorry), if you click the toggle for sponsors rather than applicants, then go to the "Eligibility" tab, then expand the section "Provide information on relevant offences" it seems to be saying sponsors need police certificates too:

Have you been updating with more recent relationship proofs?
That can sometimes help.

Hi everyone.
I have a few questions and that will be great if someone who have been through this process can share experience.

I read someone post here saying that if you are not married at the time of applying 820 and after applying 820 visa say after 6-9months of visa submission of 820 you get married and here you get married there your submitted application have high chances of cancellation. It's super confusing. If someone can answer please.

My 2nd Main question is.
I applied my 820 visa at the end of 2019 but I married in mid 2019 after staying together around 2 months(had to marry due to relegion). We met in mid 2018 first time which I mentioned in application and also provided phone calls history but as I am the person who doesn't take much photos so I am wondering that not providing photos before of marriage as I didnt have can sabotage my visa?
3rd question.
My partner took a stand for me and we got married in mid of 2019 after living together for 2months and her family doesn't know about our marriage and even she doesn't want to tell her friends that includes her those friends who filled 888forms for her but Her family and friends know that we are living together as partners but unmarried.But the reality is we actually got married since we living together 2019,She didn't tell to her family and friends because of there culture rituals they do when get married which we didn't do and got married in my religious way on which she is happy but I have concern about the Visa which is
Do u think it can effect my visa any sort for example immi approach her friends who filled 888 forms for us to know our current marital status,or her family.
Thanks for help if someone can answer

Don't fully take my word for it, I am NOT a migration agent nor have I filed my app yet or have the visa. But when we did my husband's PR back in Canada, we had to show that our wedding was public knowledge and that there were friends and family there.

And here in Aus, it's my understanding that your relationship needs to be socially accepted, dunno if wedding needs to be socially accepted but if people writing their 888 contradict stuff that you say, it might not be good. Not saying it wouldn't be accepted or anything but it could raise some red flags in my un-professional opinion and experience.

I would consult a migration agent in your situation to be sure.

You need professional help.
One of the best things you can do is to look at your application as an outsider. After all that is what the application is, you are proving to a stranger that your relationship is genuine.
When did you become a serious exclusive couple outside of dating?
