I love all these grant posts, good on you guys. Also the two recent 10 month grants give me more encouragement, we just hit the 8 month mark today. If I get lucky as well my visa might be granted as soon as yours, and that's only 2 months away!

Hello everyone!

My partner and I were recently granted the PMV visa for him (yippee!) and I'm now trying to completely understand our next steps. I don't know if I've just spent too long sifting through info or if I'm just an idiot, because I still don't really understand how the PMV > Partner Visa process goes. My eyes currently feel like pickled onions, hence why I am asking on here even though I feel a bit silly because it's probably so straightforward.

My understanding is that it works like this:

1. Granted for PMV visa and arrive to Australia
2. Get married in Australia
3. Submit 820/801 application (do they require much additional info?)
4. Stay on 820 visa until 801 is granted. Anywhere from 3-15 months from what I've seen on here and on the immi site.
5. Stay on 801 for two years, relationship is assessed again, and then move to permanent residency.

My understanding is that the 820 is a temporary visa (like a bridging visa?) and that the 801 is permanent.

Do I have this right? I feel so confused!

Thank you everyone! I apologise to anyone who is kind enough to spell this out for me!

Congrats!

You do seem a little confused. The 820 is a temporary visa not like a bridging visa - employers don't like the bridging visa (some do but alot don't).

Here are the steps:
1/ arrive in Australia before must enter date (do not get married before entry)
2/ get married within 9 months of grant
3/ apply for 820 (you don't need as much evidence as a straight 820)
4/ 820 usually approved within a few weeks but we do have a few that have taken a few months or so (reasons unknown)
5/ you will get a letter a few months before you are eligible for the 801 (eligible 2 years after application date of 820)
6/ you will need to gather all your evidence and submit it for 801.
7/ PR is then grant and you can enjoy the life of not collecting evidence!

With the 801 Mark said recently he is seeing more rejections so make sure you keep that evidence. Mark has said to submit the same amount as you would for an 820 (not a PMV to 820 as that doesn't require alot of evidence).

Good luck any questions feel free to ask.

Hello all,

Long time no speak - in saying that I have been lurking and seeing how others have been getting on with their 820/801 visas. Congratulations to everyone on their recent grants!

We are still in the 'waiting room' with regards to our 820 application, which we submitted back in April 2014. After seeing a spate of applications approved after 10 months or so we are quietly optimistic yet extremely nervous! All I can say is when (and if) the 820 visa is granted there will be a massive sigh of relief and a few beers had.

I'll keep you all informed as much as I can, best wishes to those in the same position as ourselves or are about to apply!

James.

Hi James... we know how you're feeling. Ours was over 14 months. If they haven't contacted you, apart from the usual automated email, you have some reason to be optimistic. Keep that beer cold...

I will Dinkum!

Yes, no email aside from the usual automated ones. We did get one informing us our application would be transferred from the Melbourne office to the Perth office mid-January (similar to 'kdc') so we'll see!

Hi Jamesy,

Glad to know you were informed about that! I think It is a good sign

I hope Perth office is not overloaded with applications and we all can get the Grants soon!

We applied april 2014 online in Vic too but never got an email apart from the acknowledgement and bridging visa. Is that a good or bad sign?
