Have you been assigned with a case officer? It is more effective to contact the case officer via email instead of calling the immigration hotline. I called them earlier to clarify on the visa status and the hotline guy gave me wrong info and advised me to do nothing but wait. They stated there is no way you can communicate with the case officer. I did not believe the hotline staff and try my luck emailing the case officer instead. BINGO - The case officer did reply and shed some lights regarding my application.

I got my visa faster than expected - only took me 15 months. I have applied my 820 onshore on Oct 17 and was granted 820 on Feb 19. Immigration first started reviewing my application in Apr 2018, requested for more information on Aug 2018 such as form 888 and medicare check and also AFP police check. I have submitted everything in Nov 2018 and they clarified some information with me on Feb 2019 and I was granted 820 the day straight after. From what I have understood, the social aspects of the relationship is probably the key in getting the visa approved. We are lucky to have friends who can certify our relationships and make our case strong. That's probably why I can get my 820 visa quicker than expected.

Btw they process 820 and 801 together - if you satisfy the 801 requirements at the time of application ( i.e. married >3 years when you lodge the application), case office might grant you straight with the 801 without the 2 years wait after getting 820. However, if you have been granted with 820, you can't do anything but wait for 2 years until you can submit 801 application and provide all the documents again.

We applied online April 2017 ( see timeline on signiture ) and uploaded everything we possibly could in regards to evidence and still not been granted the 820 temp visa.
It is frustrating because we cannot go any further to begin the second stage 801 until we have been granted the temp visa and it has now been 23 months.
I called Immigration and asked if I should submit the 4 categories of evidence applicable for stage 2 now and if that would grant the 820 or both the 820 & 802 PR, but he said NO because if it is being looking at and stating it is processing then they have everything they need.

Unsure what to do as it has been a very long process.

Hi Breadlyco,
Thank you for sharing your time line and experience. Sadly, NO we weren't given a CO which is why it has been difficult process for us. We have most likey had our application shared with the case load and have no idea who is taking care of it. When you were given a CO, did she/he email you directly with their email details. I am unsure how CO communicate. We were asked for AFP check back in January 2018 for myself but it was a generic request with no other details. I am interested to know what details CO give.

Hello all,

It's been interesting reading all your replies!

I also have a quick question.

I applied onshore for my Stage 1 - Partner or Prospective Marriage Visa (300,309/100,820/801) in August 2017.

Since the we had a request for my partners AFP in November 18, so we applied and sent that in within a week or so. Heard nothing since except the email at 18 months (February) saying it's still being processed. By the way I am fully aware I'm not within the global processing times yet.

My question is, I uploaded all the evidence for couple of years evidence up until the date I submitted the application, and nothing since (except my change of address).

Have you guys been uploading evidence as you have been waiting? I haven't and I'm starting to think maybe I should start uploading more from the time I submitted the application up until now.

What do you think? Have I held my visa up in this case? I was under the impression that I wouldn't have to upload anything else until I got to the next part of the visa process.

Thanks in advance,

Shaun

It might be best to upload some things at intervals. We did.

Hey guys, so my partner was granted his today. We actually were able to get a home loan even though he was on bridging visa e. So it is possible, I guess just try to find a bank that will do it. It took us 22 months, and we didn’t add much extra stuff on. When we got married we added that evidence and that’s was about it

Fingers crossed we get the 820 soon as we received an email after me emailing a complaint a few days ago asking for hubby's AFP check.
Applied online and onshore through migration agent (Mark Northam) on 25 April 2016 and got 820 on 1 May 2017.
Now I applied 801 by myself in May2018 and waiting for decision. We’ve been together for 5 years.
Hopefully you guys will get 820,801 together.

Fingers crossed. We received an email last Friday requesting AFP check. We have sent away for it. I am uploading updated stat decs and utility bills,
updated financial evidence and more form 888's and hammer them with all the new updated info and hopefully it is enough to process it all at once.

It was such a relief
I am crossing my fingers, toes, legs, arms lol that we get both processed together, but not sure if that will happen. Just lucky to finally hear back asking for the AFP. x
