Visa 820

Hi

I'm new here.

I just wondering, I applied this one through migration agent, he applied this application online (his on holiday for 2 months).

I applied on 22 Sept 2014. My wife went back to her country to prepay our wedding on December. We arrived again in Australia on 7 January and we haven't leave country ever since.

I heard from our friends that normally this kind of Visa takes 6-8 months to process.

Received a bridging Visa the next day through email.

I have no idea which office does it go to?

Tried to ring Immigration, been waiting for almost 1 hour and decided to hang up.

Any help?

Nothing to worry about. If you read the messages just before yours they seem to be granting august visas now. Processing times are quoted 12-15mths so even if you had gone through immigration that would have told you it's standard wait time


Congrats on the new grants! Hopefully mine isn't far away

I applied Aug 23, if that helps Looks like your app was only a couple of days after mine, so fingers crossed!

I am Aussie and my wife is Chinese. My wife is 3 month pregnant and she would like to give birth in Melbourne. I would like to know if she uses ETA to come to Australia, and lodge her 820 application form online immediately, would she able to get the temporary Medicare Card in few days? Any waiting period for Medicare Card before using it?

Some off-topic questions, does Medicare Card cover prenatal checkups? is it possible to make a maternity booking at the hospital in advance (before she come to Australia)?

Thanks in advance.

Don't put my hopes too high!!
Received email late April saying my case was transferred to Brisbane... waiting waiting waiting. Oh dear




acsecret I think you should consult a migration agent to present you case in the best light possible. Tourism visa is for tourism purposes; immigration might have doubts that she is here for tourism if she is pregnant and has her partner in Australia and might refuse her the visa/refuse her entry.

Make sure you also have chances to have your partner visa granted, as you don't seem to be living together. Being married is not always enough to obtain a partner visa.

Yes; you get the temporary card as soon as you apply for 820

Applied in June 2014 and still waiting, it's bloody frustrating to see July and August grants coming through!

Sorry, got another silly question.

In the 820 online application, I have entered all the information. At the end of form, it shows it is "Ready to Submit", with a Submit button. However, I have not entered payment information or attach document. Do I make payment or attach document after the form is lodged?

Hi acsecret,

Yes. When we did the payment, the application lodgement date is shown as the same date. This makes me believe that countdown of 12-15 months starts after you have made your payment. I had updated documents slowly and steadily within the 1 week after payment, and my lodgement date didn't change.

Regards
Kathleen

Submit and pay, after that you can upload documents
