Just a quick question to those who have their 801 already. What things did they ask you to submit or what did you have to do when they contacted you before getting your 801?
Congrats. That is not unusual for a PMV. They are really just making sure you got married and living together as a married couple.

You have to apply for the 801 and they contact you usually 2 months prior to your eligibility date.

Mark has said that the 801 is requiring more and more evidence so I would be submitting as much as you can. Basically same as 820. You want joint bills, joint account, photos, social things ie. Movies, travel together etc.

Woohoo, just checked my e-mail and I got the request for more info (about two months and a week before my eligibility date). Can't wait to get started on this. So ready for this whole process to be finished (though I suppose after this it's the wait for citizenship eligibility!). Might have some questions soon. =D

Hey Inkhearted - welcome back! You should know that they've recently (according to Mark and the experiences of other forum members) cracked down on the 801 applications. Unfortunately you'll need to be ready to provide a lot more evidence than was previously necessary. You'll need to provide much of the same type of evidence you did for the 820 - evidence you've continued to live together, shared finances, nature of your comittment, etc. I know... frustrating. But there's been too much fraud, so they're requiring more now. You can, however, apply for it online at least.

Thanks for the info, CollegeGirl! Luckily I've been saving lots of evidence since lodging the 820--I feel like I've got more this time around than I did before, even. I'll make sure to post up what I've got before submitting this one and everyone can assess if they think it's enough or not and we can try to add more if needed. So frustrating the amount of fraud that goes on, making it more difficult for legitimate couples.

Hi guys!

I just lodged my application for PR, eligibility date is 23/01/15, so all that's left now is the WAIT...

(Submitted 820 23/01/13, Visa granted 14/05/13).

Have been reading a bit on this thread and am now getting a bit nervous I should have put even more work into it? I didn't really worry that much this time around since our relationship IS genuine and we've been together the whole time...

Especially worried about the "Nature of commitment" part, as we don't have any will or superannuation stuff. What did you guys include in this section?

Thanks!

Lindaa, I just got on to ask this very same question about what to put in the Nature of Commitment section! Nature of Commitment is probably my weakest section and I'd love more ideas to fill it up. Last time around I used tons of our long-distance communication, but obviously we don't have much of that now...

I'd forgotten about supers actually--we are now listed as sole beneficiaries on each other's supers. Does anyone have any idea how I might go about proving this? Can't remember if it's on some documentation I received upon joining the fund or not... I'll have to check. If not, is that sort of thing usually available on online accounts or is it a ring them up and ask sort of deal? (I have SunSuper, he has Rest Super if anyone has experience with those!)

Hi All,

Submitted my online application online to the Melbourne office for my 801 visa. Will try to upload all evidence stuff by end of this week. Any idea how long is the wait before a case officer is assigned?

Thanks
Elvira

You can get the details of the beneficiaries online ... both my husband and my super both have these options.

Hey guys,

Long time lurker, minimal poster.
Have received so much encouragement and advice from these forums so just wanted to say thank you to everyone and add my bit...

04 Oct 2012 - 820 applied for
14 Jan 2013 - 820 granted
04 Oct 2014 - 801 applied for (online)
20 Jan 2015 - 801 granted

Provided lots of evidence for 801 (not as much as 820, but still plenty): bank statements, photos, invoices from same doctor/ dentist, car hire receipts in both our names, just two 888 forms.

No contact at all from immigration - just an email to say it had been granted.
I did phone up last week and they refused to tell me if I had a case officer or not (no idea why - the guy just said that it was now standard procedure not to tell people). However, I have an idea in my head that when you ring up it might trigger something on their computer to have your case officer look at your file as the exact same thing happened last time (just my speculation but could be possible).

For all those who are still waiting - good luck!! If you think I can answer any questions for you then please feel free to ask.

Thanks!

Here's what I did for "Nature of commitment"

- We have joint travel and private health insurance so I put the certificates for both years.

- Itemised phone accounts, most companies seem to have them accessible for a year. You should be able to download them from your online account with them. It's a .csv file so make sure to add the proper bill (which should be a .pdf) so it's clear you haven't changed anything. That should show you've been in contact the whole time as it records all texts and phone calls. It's particularly helpful if one of you was away at one point as it shows you were still in close contact.

- My partner is learning french, which shows some commitment. We added the receipts from her classes.
