Exemption for Spouse on 820 Visa (801 pending)

I think the 820 visa does not require an exemption, but the thing is other countries do not seem to get the memo.

An 820 visa holder that I know was not allowed to board in China.

My partner is also an 820 visa holder, but I want to apply for an exemption (even if Australia thinks it is not necessary), because China seems to think only PR (801 for example) and Citizens can board.

Now I do not know for sure how they would treat an exemption, but I would find it very strange if they went as far as to deny boarding for a 820 visa AND an exemption.

So am I able to do this?

Our 801 could be approved any second (with luck), but without luck we are looking at about a year possibly.

She has already been stuck for 3 months. I think compassionate ground is very easy to sell.

I think if you are a 'spouse' not 'de facto' then you can travel to Australia. You would need to provide your marriage certificate and show the Department of Home Affairs message that says immediate family members of Australian citizens can travel to Australia.
