Is it something that is normal...or does it mean that the a co is gonna be assigned as soon as I submit my medicals and police checks...


Hi! I received the same e-mail around the 8-month mark, was in communication with my CO after my medicals were turned in, and my visa was approved just a few hours after I turned my police checks in. :) You could be on your way to approval!

As Inkhearted has said, it sounds like good news. Which office did you apply at?

There doesn't seem to be anyway to tell how long things take with Immi, we got medical request 2 weeks after we lodged onshore. That was back in November 2013 and we are doing medical tomorrow. We took our time as they only remain valid for 12 moths and can't see the point in doing them twice.

Seems to me to be a real hit and miss bit like winning loto
Good luck to those currently sitting in here

Hello,everyone,

Greetings from me here in Ballina,New South Wales,Australia.

I was granted a PMV sub class 300 visa last Dec. 23, 2013 with my 2 dependents; one is 22 and the other is 19 years old. My visa's effectivity is 23 Dec. 2013 until 22 September 2014.The condition of course is I must get married within the valid period of my visa grant. We were married last 15 February 2014 and a week after ,have requested a copy of the marriage certificate from the registry of Marriages here in Australia. Once I get it, I plan to report our marriage to the Consulate of the Philippines and change my passport's name to my new married name and report this changes to DIAC. From this, I will file my partner's visa subclass 820/801 using my husband's name.

Here is my question. Can my 22 year old boy(who is dependent on me) but, has just finished his university degree from the Philippines,apply for job now ,holding a PMV subclass 300 visa? Also, can he apply for Tax number so he could look for job. This is the same case to other dependent who is 19 years old and she was on her 3rd year college in accountancy in the Phils but stopped in the second semester of 2013 because we were waiting for our visa anytime those period. True enough, the visa was approved within the second semester of 2013-2014. The three of us, my 2 dependents and I, left our country(Phils) last Jan 17, 2014.

I am now looking for job here in our locality, because my husband is not earning much, with the 3 of us depending on him, my children wanted to help to unload some burden in the household expenses that my husband is providing us by applying any job ,but, job here in Aus requires Tax number. I apply for myself but, can my children apply?

It is highly appreciated if you could shade light on this and if anyone experienced the same is also welcome to share her experience.

Thank you

Hi Gretz57, you might want to start a new thread and ask this question there. From what I can remember, a lot of the people on this thread don't have dependents and many of them weren't on PMVs first, so I don't know if we can give you a proper answer. Other people on the forum probably have more experience with this but won't necessarily check this thread. Wish I could help more... good luck!! :)

Finally!
 
Hello everyone,

I finally applied for my 820/801 visa last week and received my acknowledgement letter for a valid visa application yesterday so my official date of application is the 10.03.2014.
I've been in Australia for nearly 3.5 years, 1 year Work and travel, the rest student visa and been with my partner a little over 3 years now but couldn't apply before as he was just granted his PR a few months back.

I'm originally from Germany, my partner is from Bangladesh. I submitted a decision ready application with all medicals and police checks done. Within the BVA grant notice I received, it states the waiting time is currently 9-13 months but hoping it won't take that long, but you never know :)
My previous visa was a student visa and I'm just glad that I'm now finally allowed to work full time without having to lodge another request to do so as I was afraid I might stay on the 20hr restriction.

My only concern is that my partner couldn't really show much of a work history as he was self employed the last 3 years without much income and just signed a full time contract (thank god!) just in time before we applied. He also had a massive operation 2 years back which made him unable to work properly for quite a long time so I was the one supporting him^^... Finally, it's all going back to normal and I'm so happy that we've passed those last quite rough years and looking forward to settle properly in OZ...

I couldn't figure out how to add a timeline to my posts, anyone knows how to do it?


Cheers and good luck everyone :)

You can relax now the large task is done. I kept a record of the dates of each police clearance and medical check. They all expire after 12 months and we decided to keep them current with new clearances and checks until the decision was made. A bit more expensive, but hopefully worth it. Good luck now you have joined the patient finger-crossers.

Hi Inkhearted,
Thank you for your suggestion . Will you please teach me how to start a new thread in titled "PMV 300 to Partner's Onshore 820/801"
Thank you.

Hi,

Is your student visa finished? Just wondering as it is important to remember your BVA visa doesn't come into effect until your current visa runs out. As far as I know you can't cancel your current visa and go onto a BVA, you have to wait for the expiry date so if you are on a student visa you will still only be allowed to work 20 hours.
