820 granted today - not a surprise since I've been asked to return for the grant of my visa (and I flew in this morning) but still really cool :) Applied June 2014 so a year and a month.

Question - when applying online - and adding the passport photos of the sponsor and applicant - how are you meant to print the name on the back of the photo and scan it???

This such a silly request from DIBP, this is what they told me to do:

1. Get 2 passport sized photos.
2. Write your name on the back of one photo.
3. Scan both photos on the same page: one with picture side down and the other name side down.

I hope that makes sense. lol

Haven't heard anything
 
I applied on 26th April 2015 for Partner 820. Apart from the bridging visa grant I haven't heard anything. Should I be worried? Have I missed something? Should I call DIBP? Or is this normal? I know the wait can be a day to a year and a half. Looks like mine may end up being a longer wait.

Hi.
My one lodged oct 2014. Only bVa granted, nothing else. I think you should take it easy. Nothing worried now, breathing normally and collect more papers and ready when they ask. Waiting until a year and call, as someone told me they can give visa without any more paper work.

Don't be worried about it, It's unlikely you'll hear anything until they need police checks or medicals/more info etc (if those haven't been supplied already). Best just to try and put it out of your mind for a bit! I applied in September 2014 and have yet to hear anything other than the grant of my bva and bvb :)

820 granted
 
Hi everyone, I applied partner visa (de facto) on online in NSW on 23/06/2014, and granted today (17/07). I'm from Japan (low risk country) but took it quite a while. Anyway, I've been reading heaps of stuff on this forum and really appreciate all the information which you share. Couldn't have dome without this! Thanks heaps! Now sit back and wait another year till apply for PR!
