Hi there. I just received my 801 visa today, came through directly no 820 visa and no contact from case officer (we are together 4yrs and have a baby). I applied at the end of July 2014. My medical had expired in May but wasn't requested to renew this. Thanks so much to all that post such helpful info on here and I hope everyone else gets a grant letter soon! Its a great feeling and a real relief! I was checking this almost daily to see what was happening!

Congratulations! Did you apply for the permanent visa straight up, or did they calculate it that you had lived together long enough? I have put that we have been in a de facto relationship on the form since 19th December 2013, which is coming up for 2 years, however I believe we have evidence to show that we may have been considered de facto for longer than that.. It depends what they accept as evidence I suppose! It's been hard for us as he is in the army, and he goes away a lot, and I have been travelling back to the UK for short periods of time to see family/work.

Going straight to permanent rather than temporary for 2 years - permanent would be sooo much easier for us, but again - it's up to the department isn't it!

Congratulations, bmb24! We told them specifically that we wanted them to consider us directly for 801 (together 8 years, married for 4), but they do this automatically if you fit the criteria and have substantiating evidence.

LivNaomi, if you indicated December 2013 as the beginning, then my understanding is that DIBP would take it as at the time of application you did not fit the requirement to go straight to PR/801. In the 1127 Partner Migration booklet, page 37, it says:
"In most cases, permanent residence cannot be granted less than 2 years from when you lodge your application. You may, however, be granted a permanent visa without having to fulfil the usual two-year waiting period if:
• at the time you apply, you have been in a partner relationship with your partner for 3 years or more, or 2 years or more if you and your partner have a dependent child of your relationship; or
• your partner holds or held a permanent humanitarian visa and you were in the relationship before the visa was granted and this relationship was declared to the department at the time (applies to subclass 100 visas only).
"

It has been said on the forum that for de facto relationships DIBP often considers the date when you started living together as the beginning of the de facto relationship. It might be a bit tricky to go back and revise this date, but if you have solid evidence from that earlier date going forward and if you really want them to consider you to go straight to 801, then it wouldn't hurt to look into it (i.e. consult Mark or others on the forum about whether revising this kind of information is risky or beneficial). At the very worst, if you leave things as is, you'll receive TR/820 and have PM/801 soon thereafter.

Cheers, Misha

To be considered for 801 you need to either be de facto for 2 years (with a child) or 3 years (without a child).

It is an at time of lodgement requirement so even if you had a child together at time of lodging you would not be considered for PR straight up as your 2 years isn't until December.

Congrats! Probably just before they went home (most public servants can work anywhere between 7am and 7pm) unless it was from Perth.

They must be on a roll today ... this is the 2nd PMV to 820 granted today.

11months later I got my 820 granted!!! Applied 7th July 14 and got it yesterday 10th June 15. So so happy as I was a bit nervous we hadnt enough evidence because we spent three years long distance. We didn't do statemenys just filled yhe boxes on yhe actual application form. My AFP Check expired in May and I haven't had time to redo it but that was fine.

I'm so so happy!! Just a year now until we can apply for Permanant Residency.

I applied online from Melbourne but my application was sent to Perth (I got an auto generated email in May).

Good luck everyone still waiting. This forum has been a goldmine of information!!
