There are various reports of DIBP where the 'quota' is mentioned (60,885 visas).

We can always hope they process a few more cases above that though.

Submitted May 2015

FINALLY we have paid and sent off the application on the 5th May (online application).

I'm now in the process of attaching all the relevant documentation.. I'm kind of wishing that I had done a paper application now though, as I find the subheadings for the documents that they recommend don't include everything I want to attach and it feels bitty and unorganised to me! Anyone else had this problem at all??

I'm also worried about the time apart my partner and I have spent away from each other. He's in the defence force so obviously he spends a lot of time 'out field' on training exercises... I have also had to go back and forward to the UK because of visas and having to save up more money so that I can come back on tourist visas - I used up my WHV last year!

Also - where do people recommend attaching photographs to the application? I'm not sure which heading to go under. There's a 'photograph - other' but I got the impression (from the little question-mark help thing!) that it was for a photo of me, just not passport style! I want to attach ones of us at weddings together/with his family/with my family/on holidays etc.

Also - any ideas on how long an onshore visa takes to be granted after applying? Or are they literally all different? I've got my bridging visa come through - it came through immediately once I'd paid so I'm guessing that is standard procedure! I'm from the UK, so a low risk country and we have applied onshore.

My 820 visa took 11 months

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll keep that in mind. I'm hoping they'll allow me to travel back to the UK when my bridging visa A kicks in as my brother and his fiancée are expecting a baby! I'll obviously have to apply for a BVB though. Just hoping they're not too strict on it!

I'm also going on a cruise which my bf's Dad booked for us, around NZ in December - do you think I'll have to get a BVB for that too?

You will need Bvb for both but they are very lenient on it. There is no reason why they would reject it.

Oh that's brilliant - do they usually give a time restriction though? How long do you think I'll be able to be back in the UK with my family for? It will be the last time I get to spend time with them for quite a while :/

You tell them how long you are planning to go and they give you the BVB accordingly. I don't think there are rules; but as long as it's not ridiculous like 6 months it should be fine. Most BVBs are granted for a couple of months

Hello good folks,

Just after yesterday I was saying they might always give out a few more visas, it seems they decided to do that.

I just got my grant of an 801 a few hours ago! I am already planning a massive celebration and have called all my loved ones. It feels incredible!

For now just wanted to say thank you to all the people on the forum. The wait has been made so much easier and the information I picked up here helped me immensely.

My partner and I have been together for more like 9 years, but didn't know whether we had enough proof to claim we had been more than 3 yrs as a de facto. So, I will come back with a more detailed post about our list of documentation later... when done celebrating and jumping around...

Keep positive everyone! They are working on our applications!

Note: Mine was transferred from Brissie to Perth in March & I had all the police checks and medicals from the application time. No interview or contact.

La Vie,
Congratulations! That's fantastic news. This makes me think we should start focusing some of our energy and sharing on the forum on how to celebrate visa grants! I'd love to hear what you have planned for your party.
All the best,
Misha
