Question 820/801 Visa After All Documents Recieved?

Hi there, I went absolutely nuts with the 820/801 Visa Application and with the advice given on this forum provided 100s of pages of comprehensive independently verifiable evidence which proves without any doubt a long term relationship in every category they requested.

I received a call from the the Dept. of Home Affairs, Visa officer processing my case who has just asked for one more document (AFP police check with an additional name), they said that all other documents have been checked and are good and we'll be approved to get the 801 visa if we can supply this document. Everything else has been completed including health check etc. The online status is still "Initial Assessment'"

My question is, does anyone know from this point how long it will take to get the visa once I submit that document or if there is anyway to speed the process up?

I'd like to apply for a CSP (Domestic - Commonwealth Supported Place) at University and the cut off is in 5 weeks time and so I'm getting stressed I might not make it in time. (International Student Fees are 39,000 vs 3,700 for domestic students).

Might be same, day, same week or same month. It's at their discretion. When did you submit your application?

17th April 2020 - However it was very comprehensive and was only missing the police checks as it was recommended that you get them only after being requested as they have a 6 month validity.

If they can be processed in a single day after receiving all the documents that's reassuring as they said they've already checked and approved the other documents and tentatively approved the 801.

You don't know really as it is entirely up to your case officer. I can only tell you our experience. Got a request for more docs on 15/10/2019 (health check and police check). Was able to have Australian police check done a few days later, and had medical check on 21/10/19. If you applied online, after uploading police cert and other docs if needed/requested, you have the option in immi account to click a button to finalise uploading, basically it meant I have done everything I can and provide all docs/evidence requested, CO please check and finalise my application. Our visa was granted on 30/10/2019, so about 8 days after.

It’s good to know that it is possible for them to do i this period of time so at least I’ll have a chance of making the Dec 1 deadline. I suppose if it gets close I can ring and plead but I read somewhere that CSP is not a valid reason for expediting a visa application.

You can include a letter to the CO explaining your situation and upload it on immi account under "other documents". It might help
