This information is incorrect. All 820 applicants are required to do a medical there is no way around it.

Those that come from a PMV have already done their medicals offshore and only have to do a new medical if requested.

Thank you for clarification Mish! Can't have erroneous information left unchallenged.

Correct they can. I have yet to see someone onshore having to redo their medicals. This probably has to do with the fact that they are already onshore and medicals have to valid when you enter Australia.

However, I have seen some offshore applications where they had to get new medicals.

Hi Halogen, sounds like we are in a similar boat. My husband came in on a student visa and he is now on the BVA but his student visa doesn't expire until around January 2017 so i don't think the BVA will come into effect before the 820 would be granted. Hopefully not, that would be a long wait!.

It's only been 3 months but feels like we have been waiting an eternity already! Unfortunately we recently lost our baby too which has been hard.

Another quick question guys. If my husband is still on his student visa, if we need to travel to his hometown in Brazil, is he travelling on the student visa and thus we don't need any special grant for leaving the country?

Thanks so much.

Sorry to hear that pdub, my condolences during this very difficult time.

The student visa will be in effect as long as he has a course of study and satisfies the other requirements of a student visa. If this is the case, he is free to leave and return to Australia. Same goes for the working conditions, out of class, unrestricted, during class, 40 hours a fortnight (If i recall correctly).

My wife's student visa was for 2 years but through no fault of her own, her course was shortened to 1 year. It is a unique situation and Immi advised that as she has finished the highest qualification on her CoE, she is allowed to remain on her student visa despite not being actively in a course of study. This will last until March 2016, and of course, we are hoping the 820 gets granted before then!

pdub - Firstly sincere condolences to you and your husband for your loss.

What ever the existing restrictions are on student Visa remain. i.e if has multiple entries status quo, if in doubt you can contact Border.gov.au. I dont believe bridging B would be required but not 100% on that

Thanks MaryMar for the kind words.

I also thought the same as you have posted. I might give then a call as you said just to be 200% certain. Last time I called immigration there was an hour wait, thankfully they call you back which helps.

I applied for my 820/801 onshore online on 26th March 2015. I'm in Perth, I'm a UK citizen.
The wait time when I applied was 5-7 months but has since been changed to over 12 months I'm not sure if this includes me or those who applied after.

At the time of applying I uploaded the required docs, like the stat decs, form 80 etc.
Since then (and even still now) I am uploading things as I come across them.
When me and my partner started living together on March 7th 2014 we never added me to the tenancy as we already wanted to move somewhere else, we never made a joint account either until Jan 2015.
I've uploaded my bank statements from when we moved in together so IMMI can see that my grocery shopping etc was where we live, and highlighted cash I've taken out to pay to my partner. I was earning minimum wage at the time and my partner wouldn't let me pay much towards rents and utilities and this I believe has been our downfall.
I have however, 3 form 888's - 1 from a family friend, 1 from a police Sargent and the other from a police detective (All citizens and PR). also statements signed and with scan of color ID from my parents, partners parents, partners brother and about 10 of our friends all stating that I moved in with him on March 7th 2014. hopefully this helps.

I'm surprised you say waiting times were 5-7 months when you applied; I applied in August last year and was already quoted 12-15 months. I think now they are quoting 13-15. So you should be in that bracket as well, having applied months after me (and the wait times just increase).


I don't think immi is here to judge who pays what in the couple - some couples I know only the man pays; other do 50/50 even if the income is 80/20; some do prorate of income..
I was like you; I haven't paid much because I was earning 20% of the household money because I couldnt find a full time job (so I participated to barely 20% of our expenses ) as long as you explain why you have decided to do it this way and it's consistent. I wouldn't worry about it


Have you received any mail at the previous address at your name? wedding invite; or even if you had your own bank account what was the address?

I wouldn't say that it is a bad thing that your partner paid the rent I would look at it as a positive. I think it shows the genuineness because you wouldn't pay the rent for a friend.

I am guessing you lodged a tax return for both 2014 and 2015 financial year. The notice of assessment can be used to show your address. Then if you used etax you can take a printout of the page where you declare your relationship on your tax return.
