QLD did as of a couple of years ago because I knew someone on a WHV who worked for QLD government. Not sure if it has changed as jobs have gotten harder.

I am still a firm believer that it all comes down to luck, cover letter and resume. I have heard that if you don't mention the visa they throw the application aside because they don't want to waste their time.

I agree. I worked really hard to get this job, I had three rounds of interviews and put so much effort and research into cover letters etc. at the end of the day I was lucky that no citizens/PR applied who were better suited than I was. If they had in sure they would have hired them.

I think it's unusual for someone to work for NT government on a visa though, I do get asked questions a lot and the whole bridging visa was so hard to explain they'd not come across it much!

From 820 to 801

Hi everybody,

My partner was granted her 820 visa in Jun 2015 and applied for visa 801 straight away. Our migration agent told us that normally it'd take about 6-8 months to process the application, as most people here have mentioned in this thread. But instead of waiting endlessly, we got a surprise call from Immigration.

On 7th Dec my partner received a call from our C.O. After asking many questions regarding every aspect of our relationship, the officer was not too pleased with the fact that we do not have a joint SAVINGS account (although we do have a joint account for our common daily expenses). And now I am very worried that her visa will be refused based on this fact alone.

Our agent said in the past, the stage 2 of the application (i.e. 801 visa) is quite simple, but recently they are trying to make it harder and are more likely to refuse applicants during the second stage. I am so worried now.

Is it true about what the agent said?

Has anyone had any similar experience to share?

What your agent said is correct. Before the 801 was essentially a tick and flick to make sure you are still together. Now because of all the fraudulent applications it is getting harder and processing times are taking longer. They also ask for more information and evidence now.

Which country is the applicant originally from?

There is a link to a spreadsheet on the first page. We have a rejection tab but I think it may only have 1. From memory there have been 4 this year. Even the migration agrents have said they are seeing more rejections now

Hello Mr/Ms God,

Please help us all and be just to all so that we get our visa grants. Our career & life is in limbo currently. We are unable to do anything and we feel low and depressed as a result. Please help all of us and help the folks at DIBP be just in granting visas based on the eliginility dates.

Dear Melb, please continue to pray. May God be with you and all of us.

Regards
Bamborabi

NSW government require PR, even though in my job (which is NSW state gov) is having trouble filling roles. My boss has already asked if my husband wanted to work with me and as soon as he has PR he has a job. This situation is totally ridiculous as they can't fill the roles why can't TR's take the jobs?

But really putting the boot in, my husband's professional qualifications are back on the skilled list, but he can't get any of the jobs because of his residency status BUT they will offer working visas!!!

Until the other day I would have said yes it is fine to do and extra evidence is good. However, I read the other day that extra evidence pushes the date back.

I would check with Mark to confirm. I don't know if we should believe or not what the DIBP call centre operator told them, as you know they are known to give incorrect advice.
