This application has been received by the department but has not been assigned for assessment. The department may contact the applicant once assessment of your application begins if further information is required.

Did that message above change for everyone or did some people get their grants without that changing?
For one person I have spoken to, that status changed to "Assessment in Progress" but literally for only an hour before her grant. Had she not happened to login during that hour, she might not have seen it. So... it may change when they start assessing it and you may see it and it may stay that way for a while, or it may never change, or it may change but for such a short time you don't see it. No way to tell, unfortunately.

what if i got my application of 801 approved during i am away from australia? any implication or would it be delayed if the case officer knew i am away?

thanks!
Hi keano - You actually don't need to even be in Australia when your PR is granted. You can be anywhere in the world. It's not a problem to take a holiday at all.

Thanks CollegeGirl, that's reassuring to know. I keep impulsively checking mine but it's probably time to stop and accept that the grant will come when it comes, fingers crossed its not too much longer though

Hi folks, just registered on the forum to give some hope to those still nervously waiting for their 801! My wife is from the UK and we applied all the way back in 2013 (I'm Australian by birth) - only got the Permanent grant on the 29th March 17. It took 12 months for the 820 to be granted and almost 16 months for the 801 to be granted. No contact during that time, total silence.

We did it all ourselves as we couldn't afford an agent and wow it was one of the most stressful things we've ever done BUT it was 100% worth it. She is the love of my life and knowing we can now start our lives together properly is AMAZING! We did stage 1 on paper and stage 2 online via immi account.

The CO called on the 29th and we missed the call, so they sent an email asking us to call back asap. My stomach dropped. You have no idea lol. So I rushed to call back and then had them just ask a few questions, no worries at all. All documents and proof provided. Said she was close to making a decision and I asked if it was gonna be a positive decision...."Yes your wifes case will be finalised soon". Excitment. No less than an hour later the grant appeared in our inbox after a total of 4 years since the initial application date....ZOMG! BEST day of our lives! Finally.

For everyone still waiting, hang in there! I know its stressful but the grant will come! If you have any questions about anything, just ask me I am so grateful that God blessed us with this.

Brilliant news and happy for you both.

My husband is nervously awaiting his 801 and is from Cardiff Wales. Our application date was June 2016 and this whole shebang started when the PMV was granted in January 2014. Let's hope it's over for us soon too.

Once again great news and now you can have a celebration tonight (and for the next few days).

Thanks heaps! It was such a relief! Just knowing our life together isn't going to suddenly be taken away from us....Its almost euphoric! Certainly makes you appreciate each other, that's for sure.

Your hub will get his, try not to worry

Talking Awesome news!

Congrats from the bottom of my heart. Oz deserves and needs you, and we'll be a better place now you're here to stay. Best wishes to you and hubby for a wonderful long life together down under. Can I hear the champagne popping? Enjoy the feeling! Exhilarating relief that's almost hard to believe. But it's true!
