Hello Guys!!

Just wanted to know what should be my next steps??

I have applied for 820 onshore on marriage grounds lodged online. It's been 7 months already and I have not been allocated a case officer yet :( my PCC and medicals are yet to be completed. Should I go ahead and get my PCC done or wait for the case officer to ask for it? My PCC will take minimum 2 months to arrive since it has to be sent from India. Please Advice!!

I am also applying for jobs here but due to my visa status (bridging visa A with full work rights) still I am rejected. There are many jobs I can't even apply cause they need PR. I get only part-time job offers.Is there anyone sailing in the same boat??

Hi Indu,

See other posts, but what I understand is you will not get a personal CO anymore. Policies have changed apparently. You just get contacted if they need anything.

It also seems like 10 months is about the earliest time for an 820 to be considered (not from PMV). You might be processed slower if India is considered a high-risk country.

So, you can perhaps go ahead now with the Police check or in a couple of months. I think they are valid for 1 year.

All the best.

Will be going for an 820 on shore at the end of the year, however I had a quick question regarding BVA and working that hopefully you lovely people can answer? Are people having trouble finding work on a BVA? Even if you are skilled?

I only ask as it may have an effect on what visa I go for....

Thanks!

Decent job is quite hard to get, but plenty on casual unskilled.

Honestly it doesn't really matter what visa you are on as the job market is not all that good these days. It all comea down to the luck of the draw.

We've seen people come here on PR and struggle to find professional jobs.

Correct. What I like to say is ... that you could apply for the same job in 2 different cities with same employer. One you may get an interview and the other not.

It all depends on how many are applying at the time you are applying and what the other applicants are like.

Honestly those with no Australian work experience may take awhile but eventually someone will give them a chance. After the first job it is alot easier because you have Australian work experience.

Sounds like I am best of worrying about it when I get there then? I assume this changes when you get your 820 through? A touch easier?

Correct worry about it when the time comes.

820 can be easier than a BVA but same issue as PR with no Australian work experience.

Unfortunately no one can predict how it will be. You never know the job market could improve ;).

We had someone on this forum get a job in Canberra and Canberra can be a tough place to get a job unless you are PR or citizen because it is majority public servants. It shows you anything is possible.

Any recent 820 grants?

16 months and still awaiting here.

Contacted Case Manager who said still awaiting security checks and advised hubby to renew his passport as it was expiring in May - very kind reminder :)

Any 820s from Pakistan?
