Partner visa Subclass 820 Waiting

Hi, everyone

This is my timelines:
20 Aug 2018, Married.
22 Aug 2018, Lodged application online( No agent),including police certificate for my partner and no criminal record certificate from my own country. form 888 from family and friend etc.
22 Aug 2018, Bridging visa A granted later on same day.
22 Aug 2018, Health check request later on same day.
22 Aug 2018, Completed health check later on same day.
Kept uploading evidences of relationship, photos, holiday tickets, beneficiary of each other's super etc from time to time.
22 Aug 2019, computer generated letter from department saying application is being processed.
Kept uploading evidences of relationship, photos, holiday tickets, beneficiary of each other's super etc from time to time.
18 Feb 2020, Request for more information(Sponsor's police check only and evidence of relationship)Case officer assigned.
19 Mar 2020, Uploaded sponsor's police check and statements from family and friend and more photos.
31 Mar 2020, computer generated letter from department saying application is being processed.

Until now still nothing. I am very worried with the computer generated letter end of March,usually it's a reminder one year after the lodgement. but receiving this on 31 of March gave me the feeling that because of coronavirus, all visa applications are put on hold?

Another confusion is the e-mail address used to send me request for more information is sent by an email address from vitoria permanent partner processing centre, not from temperary visa processing centre.does that mean they are processing my permanent visa already?

Thank you all very much for reading and really hope for some answers

G

No one can really answer that. As a matter of fact, your super lenghty process is still within the timeframe they are giving.
Why do you worry so much? You guys are living together, just wait and enjoy being together, as opposed to offshore applicants!

Holding a bridging visa here is a big problem, can't get benefits, employers tend not to hire people on bridging visa

My husband has been waiting almost 33 months and he's been employed full time since that point.

I don't think a bridging visa is a barrier to employment at all, especially if you provide a VEVO check saying you have full working rights etc.

Your application has progressed well. We applied over a year before you and have had far less communication. As far as I know we've now uploaded all required evidence and just have to wait further.

That does depend a lot on the employer, who makes the actual decision.

Some employers are OK with people on temporary or bridging visas, but some only want permanent visa holders.

Many people have mentioned the difficulty of getting work on such visas.

If you want a job in a factory or a supermarket or a restaurant, that is easy even on bridging visa. but if you want a job of your profession and get into a good company with a good pay, bridging visa is definitely a huge barrier.

But haven't you tried to contact the department to enquire on your visa? 33 months is beyond the normal waiting time, plus you have a child, they should grant you 801 straight away.
