Thank you!!! You always reply so quickly (and on a Sunday as well!!) I thought so as well, but sometimes I'm just over worried for thing that doesn't happen yet I will wait and see if they ask for it, and maybe get my hubby to call them if needed then.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

I emailed partner.temporary.qld office this morning, asking how much longer Id have to wait for my temporary application to be finalized as its been 14 months now. I was expecting to be given some detailed information about my application, such as wether or not a CO has been assigned. Instead I got a generic email and this answer:

8. How long will it take to process my application?

The Temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) is the first stage towards a Permanent Partner visa (subclass 801). You lodge one application form for both your temporary and permanent visas and pay one application charge. Your application is processed in two stages.

1. The average processing time for temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) applications is 12 to 15 months from the date your Partner visa application was lodged.

2. You will become eligible to have your permanent Partner (subclass 801) visa assessed two years after your Partner visa application was initially lodged. The current processing time for Permanent Partner (subclass 801) visas is 12 to 15 months from your eligibility date.


9. I would like an update on the progress of my application

We are unable to provide progress reports for the first stage of your partner application (temporary Partner visa (subclass 820)), if your partner visa application was lodged less than 15 months ago. If your partner visa application was lodged more than 15 months ago, we will endeavour to respond separately to your request within approximately 2 weeks of your email.




So not only has it now become 15 months before you are even allowed to ask what going on with your application (wher as it used to be between 12-15months) but now they are saying that it will be ANOTHER 15 MONTHS!! for your 801 to be processed as well!

It took nearly 16 months before my 820 came through, if you are waiting 14 months hopefully yours will come soon. I think because of longer processing times a lot of people are inquiring for their cases hence to make it easy for themselves they are sticking with generic response for everyone.

Hi guys, I was just wondering how long it took you all to get the temporary visa first? We applied on the 1st of December 2015 and our status is still application received, I was just wondering if it ever changes? It's such a stressful and depressing situation when you look at your status everyday and it's still the same. Oh no, just read a few comments and it looks like 12 to 15 months... sorry

Yo Yoli. Im 14 months in (applied Dec 2014) andso far the only thing thats changed in status is from application recieved to application in progress which happened in October. It was then I submitted my medical and police clearances. Its pretty frustrating not being able to plan anything other than work & live in the same spot until a decision gets made. Best thing to do is check just once a week. Hope it all works out for you.

Hi guys we just applied for the what I thought was 820 onshore partner visa. The bridging visa has been granted.It was an online application and when I did the medical part online the referral letter that I received says spouse visa 801.My parnter and I have been together for 4 years but have not been able to live together continuously due to my work and she has a 8 yr old son on the application also.Would this be the reason Immigration have called this an 801 and not 820 visa? Does this mean that if granted they will get PR status or will they be TR? I thought it would be an 820 TR first then into the 801 PR.

It is normal for them to have 801 on the medical. This is because 801 is the end result.

Mish you are right , it's normal to have 801 on the medical and they can issue 801 visa only if you have been with your partner for more then 5years then the co may wave 820 but in your case you and your partner haven't been together for more then 5years do you may still have to be granted TR if all document are summit with your application at once

Where do you get 5 years from? It is 3 years or 2 years with a child of a relationship.

Also remember there is a difference of together for 3 years vs defacto or married for 3 years.
