NSW. But I will not be surprised if other states esp Victoria have something similar. If it's something important to you, do a quick search on the net, there should be plenty of information.

Think rules are one thing and they are very clearly stated... but sometimes the enforcement of certain rules may vary depending on the person at the counter. And eventually, it's up to (well-informed) individual how much they want to push it.

ps, this is 801 waiting thread. let's take it somewhere else.

Hi Everyone,
this is my first post and I would like to share my information.
My eligible date was 29 May 2013 and I applied on 5 May 2015 by Paper.
I am from low risk country.
I finally received my PR yesterday. the waiting period was a bit more than 11months.
I am female and not married.
If anyone can update the spreadsheet would be great!

if you want to be very very sure so you can sleep well, you can always "Manage Application Alerts" under ImmiAccount settings. Whenever the status changes, you'll get an ImmiAccount email alert. This is in addition to whatever email your case officer may send you. So you'll receive 2 emails for important stuff. For example, if case officer wants more documents, status will change to "Information Requested", and you'll receive a immiaccount machine generated email informing of the status change. You will also receive another email from your case officer about what documents to provide. So you'll have 2 emails. It's difficult to go wrong, esp if you have the gmail filter on.

If you're submitting via paper, then you need to be slightly more proactive.

There is always a rare chance that both your emails might get lost in cyberspace in some submarine cable underneath the Pacific Ocean. But don't sweat the small stuff.

Meanwhile enjoy the journey and you'll find in the end..., alas all your anxieties are in vain, when you finally get the grant letter.

Two weeks after you get your PR, after the euphoria wears off, you may find nothing much has really changed, unless you need the PR urgently for studies, to get a job, to access centerlink... etc. Of course, the feeling of being no longer dependent on your partner/sponsor for your livelihood in Australia, is perhaps the most important thing .
Thanks for your advise.
I guess have the PR can help you find more jobs, but most jobs only require you are eligible to work in Australia (pretty good).
I tried to apply few stable and secured jobs, but no luck yet.
But honestly, as you mentioned I dont expect there is a big change.
We bought a house, and applied mortgage already.
I am having a quite stable causal job.
Perhaps, the best thing is I can do a PhD in whatever I want.

My advise, get your Australian driver license ASAP. Its very useful in Australia. You dont wanna carry your passport everyday.

Looks like the May 2015 folks are finally getting some love - just got my grant this morning! I had just put on a jumper to go outside when I opened my gmail, then I got all hot with disbelief and had to take it off and sit down haha. No other contact from immi until the grant.

Anyway, I dare say the grant letter will also arrive by post but for the record, if you put email as your preferred method of communication, you WILL receive the grant via email even if you apply by post.

Things I should mention: I was offered a job as a tour leader (something I used to do and how I met my partner) last year and decided to go for it. I was overseas without my partner for 3 months, and then we travelled together afterwards in Europe (visited my family in the UK and my partners brother in Spain over Xmas) for another 2 months. Once I was back in Aus, I provided evidence of all the ways we kept in touch, photos of us with family and travelling together, evidence of a job offer in Aus on my return, and a stat dec from each of us stating the reasons I decided to work overseas short-term and how we were both fine with the decision. I did this without being prompted by immi.

I also sent off for another Aus police check, again without prompting, since my original one expired in mid-Jan. It hasn't arrived back yet so the grant was given with an expired police check, which I believe is fairly common for low-risk.

BLOODY YEY!

hello
looking for some help. I have my prospective marriage visa and just recently married. Im now needing to file for my partners visa. after spending 90mins on hold with immi. I got no answers. I was told to redo the 820 with 888 forms all of which I did when filling out the 300. This doesnt sound right since when I filled out the 300 it shows that it is also the 820 app. What do I next? I logged in on to my immiacct and it show first stage complete (300/820) second stage perm. partner. Am I doing the perm partner visa or am I really having to redo the 300/820?

Interestingly, whereas the TR grant notice page didn't mention the partner's details at all, the PR grant notice now does.

I'm not sure I like it - since that would be a page someone would need to show to a potential employer. Gay couples will have that kind of private and irrelevant info on display and, while I would like to think we're past that, there will be employers out there who refuse to employ someone based on sexual orientation. And you'd have no way to prove it. Hmm.

Edit: I suppose VEVO means you don't need to show your actual grant notice.

Totally I agree. I'm also peeved by the fact that the sponsor's date of birth is on the notice.

Some employers and recruitment companies still insist on grant notice as evidence of PR when they can and should use VEVO, which they are legally required to, to check on employee's residency status.
