We met in in person in Jan 2017.
He returned to the USA a month later...
He returned to Australia in May of 2017, I was 4 months pregnant.
We got married in June 2017.


July 2017 - Applied for 820 - No agent.
November 2017 - Request for more information - Form 40SP (Major pregnancy brain here not submitting that.
Jan 2018 - Bridging Visa for Travel to USA
August 2018 - Application in Progress
October 2018 - Bridging Visa for Travel to USA
October 2018 - Sponsor AFP Check requested
Feb 2019 - Application in progress
July 2019 - Bridging Visa for Travel to USA
September 2019 - Application in progress
Feb 2020 - Request for AFP/FBI/Health Assessments (FINALLY)

March 2020 - Medical and AFP checks completed. FBI check delayed due to Covid-19 but all communication regarding the delays have been uploaded. I have received one direct email from the VIC temp processing team after I emailed them explaining the delay.


So we are a few days away from 33 months waiting and ready to start that next chapter of our lives as my husband is desperate to apply for the police force.

The ONLY silver lining I can hope here is that in waiting 3 years we will bypass the need to apply for the 801 and just get both parts of the visa automatically. To go through the whole process and waiting game again.

Throughout the last almost 3 years, I have updated and added information including joint bank statements, evidence of trips together, etc.. Other than that, we live with family and don't have shared assets and because he's not got PR most of the bills are in my name solely for now.
Anyway i'm just about to upload what I hope will be our final round of evidence, a family trip we took in Feb before this whole COVID-19 thing went epic.

Here's hoping April could be our month!

My thoughts are with everyone playing this waiting game, but especially those 2 plus years in <img src="http://www.australiaforum.com/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />
WELL --- Following on from this I uploaded the FBI check at 2pm on Saturday and then posted this...

At 7:20am --- 801 Granted
At 7:25am --- 820 Granted

We are so beyond happy.. I am no longer thinking about how long it took just so happy that it has finally happened and we can follow up.

I urge everyone who's waiting at this time to follow up.. Make sure all your evidence is up to date and then try and make some calls/emails about the situation.

I did have some direct contact with the perm processing team in VIC.

Wishing everyone all the best!

Congratulations mate. We were still chatting about it some days back. Congrats again.

Congras. finally you got it.
Do you mind sharing your experience on how you contact the CO? did you or your husband write to the CO? my application is also being assessed in VIC. very frustrating timer during the pandemic.

Hi,

We never really had any contact directly with our case officer. I think that a few of the communications were signed directly by someone, but other than that nothing at all.

I did email them a few times, even though it says not to and they responded once or twice.

It's not a very personalised process, the thing that I had done lately was make sure that all new evidence was uploaded.

So as we applied, as we were delayed with the FBI check etc.. I uploaded that as evidence for them to review and confirm.

Once I was confident I had supplied everything that they asked for, and all our evidence, there was a button that i had to click to finalise.. which basically meant I couldn't upload anymore.

It was 2 days after that, that I got both visa's togerther.

goodluck!

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
I applied exactly the same day 22 aug 2018, with police certificates of me and my partner. and medical check done.
i only got an e-mail on 18 feb 2020 requesting for police checks for my partner(sponsor), and evidence of relationship.
I uploaded them on 19 march2020, so far nothing.
even spsonsorship shows: submitted.

Very likely you 'll get both together. There have been a few on this forum with similar timelines..a friend of mine got his 801 directly after 27 months. Good luck!

Hi, this morning my partner received this email:

Subject: Your Australian Partner (subclass 820) visa application is progressing
Automated message from the Department of Home Affairs
Application reference: xxx
Dear xxx,
We are writing to inform you that your application for a Partner visa is in progress. Your application takes time to process as we complete a number of thorough checks.
You can login to ImmiAccount to check the status of your application
More information about global processing times is available from
Do not reply.


Does this indicate that the application has been opened. Should we apply for new AFP certificates as the 12 months has now expired, and go get the medical check?

FYI the initial application was April 2019.

Any information is greatly appreciated!
