So quick background.

We applied April 2014 - moved in to our own place together March 2013 (lived at her parents together from January 2013 - March 2013).

I was asked to provide evidence of rent payments from April 2013 - May 2013 as I did not provide this. In June I changed banks and lost the bank statements from my old account. I actually found the old bank statements showing rent payments in April and May 2013, I also provided my landlords bank statements attached to a statutory declaration to show I had made payments.

I was asked to show proof of day-to-day household expenses from both myself and my partner. I submitted bills, receipts, bank statements and statutory declaration (one each from both of us) highlighting where we had done this. We also meticulously went through the bank statements and highlighted where we had shopped at Coles for food, or at the pet store for our two cats, or paid for vet bills which we also provided, as well as local restaurants.

I was asked to provide a bank statement for our joint savings account dated up to April 2014, which I did. I also highlighted where we had deposited money into our joint savings account from our own accounts.

I was asked to provide letters and/or documents addressed to ourselves at our residential address, either individually or together, dated between April 2013 and April 2014 which we did with letters we found for a range of items such as concert tickets, hotel bookings, parcels for gifts, car insurance, internet account statements.

I was asked to provide proof of furnishing our unit, so I provided statements showing we shopped at a range of furniture stores. I will need to upload receipts for our new bed and mattress.

I also uploaded our new joint everyday account statement which we now share and use together for all our expenses along with a statutory declaration.



I uploaded a few other things around these topics too. I guess more can never hurt.

Wow that a detailed amount. I'm assuming they will ask for more from us. Looks like I better get a highlighter to highlight stuff that comes out of our joint account.

Just a question for those that have done super beneficiaries for their partners and vice versa. How long does the whole process take? Is it done solely over the phone, or is there more hassle to it?

It depends whether you want it to be binding or not, my partner had to fill out a form and have it witnessed so his would be binding, I changed mine online but as it isn't binding someone could potentially contest my wishes. Both show long term commitment though :)

After being given 28 days to give further evidence on Monday, I have submitted all extra evidence that was required and in great detail.

I emailed my CO on Wednesday listing what I submitted and asked whether it was sufficient or more evidence was required. How long should I wait for a response? The automated reply says 7 working days but when time is of the essence I'd like to know sooner if I need to provide more information to support my visa.

Any help/experience on this would be appreciated.

Sorry to bump this, does anyone have any support with this?

Edit: also, we have supplied all that the CO requested from us (see one or two previous posts), can they still reject us even though they have everything they requested? Heard from a family friend that they can still be difficult and reject us. I'm very concerned as is my partner.

CAN they still reject you? Sure. Will they? Probably not! In all honesty, what they asked you for are things that many people here submit with their application. So I'm not surprised at all that they asked you for all that. If you were able to provide them with the information they requested, they have no reason at all to reject you. Rejections typically only happen when people don't have evidence that they meet the requirement to be living together/sharing finances for 12 months (if an unregistered defacto couple) or when they have reason to believe the couple is not genuine. If you're a genuine couple, and you've provided 12+ months of evidence of living together/sharing finances (again, assuming you're applying as de facto) then you've really got nothing to worry about. Try to take a deep breath and relax - I know it's hard! Nothing to do but wait now. :)

Thank you CollegeGirl, we have been sharing finances and living together 13 months prior to applying for de facto visa and we have submitted a lot of evidence to support this (I've uploaded 160 pages of info in that last 3 days) and we are of course genuine. :) It's actually two years living together on the 28th March, hopefully we can celebrate with a few drinks and an approved application! Thanks for your support.

820 visa waiting long
 
Hi,

I applied 820/801 combined Partner Visa application in first week of October 2013. Since then I haven't received any news or outcome from DIBP or nor department asked me any other documents. I sent few emails regarding progress of my 820 visa to DIBP in last couple of months but they just reply that my application is delayed due to security clearance, as I come from High Risk country (Pakistan)

As, it now has been almost 18 months waiting time for 820 visa, ca you please advice me that how long will it take more to finalise my 820 visa. Your advice will be much appreciated.

I sent few emails to DIBP in last couple of months about the progress of my 820 application, but last month they replied me on their letter head IMMI delays my visa processing saying it may be because of security/national checks , but they are seeking to finalise my application asap. I sent another email but got same reply after a month.

I had cancelled my student visa 573, and am on BVE visa now. But I cancelled my student visa six months later when I applied 820/801 visas.

I had applied decision ready 820/801visa applications includes all required documents as well as police/character certificates overseas & Australian, Form 80 and medicals.

I have been living in Australia for seven years, and previously I had applied few other temporary visas, but I never ever had such long waiting problem. My immigration history is clean and I never breached any conditions.


Thank you

Ali

Applied 820/801 visa applications 8th October 2013
