My partner is still waiting for the 820. It's been 16.5 months.
Our case officer is the assistant manager and informs me regularly that they are actively processing the visa.

They recently askes for my husband to renew his passport as it was due to expire. Do you think that's what they are waiting for?

Don't stress as I applied for combined 820/801 in oct 2012 n they gave me 820 July 2014.

801 still awaiting hence the avg time for 820 is atleast 20 months of not more

Wow. Thanks for your reply! That gives me an estimation of how things are going in Pakistan.

I'm expecting the visa in the next couple of months.

Was your visa straight forward?
Was there an interview?
The case manager asked hubby to renew his passport so that helps.
Either way looks like we are on the home stretch.

Does anyone know if they are granting without interviews and without submission of form 888 (haven't done it and they haven't asked ).

HI Amandy,
820 grant was without any interview,
nor I knew my case officer, neither there was one specific one who had kept in touch with me since the application, I personally have no clue how it works. All I know is that often automated response comes from visa processing department.

cheers

I was never fornally allocated a case officer however when I emailed the partner processing generic email, I received a reply from the assistant manager and I've been emailing her personally now.

The 801 should not take that long, you should call them. Shouldn't take more than 2-3 months tops. I've been through the process before, the second stage only took a couple of months ut because I enquired about it and the case officer that was handling it was sick in hospital and no one had been allocated her case load yet. I asked to be reallocated and next day had the visa.

I applied for a 820 visa in July 14.Me and my partner have just recently purchased some land, and the home loan is in joint names.
We have approval to build a house from the bank but are conscious whether we should go ahead just incase the my visa is rejected.

If we were to build and get a loan in both our names would that improve our chances, or would you think its to much of a risk?

The bank is fine that im on a bridging visa A as im working full time and proved that I have the funds...would immi look at that as the same?
Thanks in advanced.

Not an expert, but I did see they ask us if we have taken loans together as proof of long-term commitment. So, it sounds like it is a positive thing in DIBP perspective that you two are taking a loan out together...
