Hi All,

Just wanted to share my visa process:

Applied for 820: 17/11/2012
Granted: 28/10/2013

Submitted 801: 20/11/2014

Still waiting for it to be granted. Can't wait to have all this visa stress behind me. It has been such a long process. Happy that I am in the final stage..until next year and dual citizenship

Hey I am in the same boat as you and i applied for 820 on 23/11/2012 but didn't have it granted till Feb 2014! A few day difference in applying seems to make a big difference....

Keep me updated if you hear anything. Did u apply your 801 online or post?

Good luck to both of us

Thanks for update

Thanks for sharing your visa process dates. We can't apply till July, so will be very interested in your updates as they occur. Agreed that it will be great to end this stress and move on to dual citizenship. Was hoping that it might be in time to vote at the next election, but it seems unlikely.

Hi All -

Thought I would just jump in here with an observation - we're seeing an increasing number of 801 refusals based on insufficient relationship evidence. This appears to be a relatively new trend (over the last 6 months or so), and often can be remedied by an MRT review, but that's time and $$. Would strongly recommend submitting plenty of relationship evidence with second stage 801 applications - you may even want to treat it like a new partner visa application and load it up with evidence in the 4 categories (see partner relationship evidence threads elsewhere on the forum for more on this).

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you Mark for the update! Horrible to get a refusal at this stage. It took me 2 days to upload all evidence. Not that I had that many documents. it was more making sure it was the right documents.

No actually I had a lot of documents sorry baby brain playing pranks. I did pretty much treat it as a 820 application. Since the grant of the 820 my partner and I have had our first child and bought a house together. I still wanted to make sure that there are no doubts about the genuinity of our relationship.

Thanks Mark . I had a feeling this would start to happen.

What kind of evidence could one use where they own a house but was before marriage therefore is only in 1 person's name? We have some joint bills, joint accounts. Mail in his name to same address ie. Super etc.

Also is joint bills essential when house is in one person's name and there is joint account only? I have a friend who I tried to convince to get joint bills and she said she wouldn't worry about it they would be fine with photos and statements. Thoughts?

When to apply

Hi Mark

Thanks very much for this key observation.

I just discovered, when checking the Partner (Permanent) Visa Calculator, that it now appears to allow you to apply for the 801 about 6 months before 2 years after the initial 820/801 application was lodged.

It shows (did you lodge prior to) Today's Lodgement Date as 3 August 2013. Since we applied in July 2013 it says we can now apply for our 801.

Should we apply this early, or leave it a while?

Hope you're enjoying your well-deserved break on the high seas.
