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
Paper application

Still waiting for 820 visa to be granted

Which office are you emailing? I applied 2 months after you and I'm getting the same replies about security checks. I'm receiving replies from an assistant manager, not a case worker, which comforts me a little as it means someone with higher experience and power is in charge of our application.

I understand the wait. It is not DIBP's fault, it is between ASIO and intel in Pak. What area in Pak are you from?

I'm satisfied with the replies I get. The last email, the assistant manager said don't forget to renew your passport! So that was good.

Hang in there. Keep me updated on your case.

Hi everyone,

Great news, visa grant today! So happy! Took 10,5 months.

Been together since: July 2010
Applied online: 3 may 2014 from Melbourne
Status: Ready, all health checks, police checks etc.

Heard nothing in these 10,5 months. No email, no reminder, nothing.

No news, is good news!

Good luck to everyone, it's worth waiting for!

Congratulations TessV!

Great news everyone, I got the email this evening to say that my application has been approved!

What a monumental feeling it is seeing the first sentence stating the good news. I've never been so happy and my partner is elated too, of course.

I want to thank everyone on this forum I've interacted with for their words and support. We wouldn't be here without you all. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts.

To those still waiting, stay strong and it will come.

James.
