Panic has really set in for me. I got a call on Monday afternoon Brisbane time by someone asking if I had gotten an email back in March asking for more information. It was almost a year after I had initially applied for the 820/801 visa. I had completely spaced and it wasn't prominent in the email's attachments that it was urgent to get back, and now almost eight months later they call me up asking for the same information and giving me a seven day deadline. I am really bad with anxiety and I haven't slept properly nor eaten properly since Monday. I hadn't brought my birth certificate with me originally and I know it's my error and I could have asked for an extension but she intimated that given the email that was sent and my lack of reply it would be unlikely to get one. I am not too worried about any of the other documents, but the birth certificate which I have asked my parents to express to me so I can certify it here. My father was told it should arrive here by Friday but the online tracking says it estimates delivery by end of day Tuesday! Sincerely hoping they are saying that to cover their tracks. Everybody has been telling me not to panic or stress as much as I have been but I am fearing the worst and it is making me feel physically ill.

Oh dear! I'm so sorry to hear this but I wish your document will arrive on time!

I haven't realised that the fees increased so much! Good luck

To be honest, if they've been waiting since March I wouldn't have thought an extra few days would make much difference now. Take a screenshot of the tracking info and send it to your c/o as proof it's on the way.
Also, try Rescue Remedy drops for your anxiety!

You probably won't hear anything from the immigration office until next June. But it's always good if you can do your medical checks now. Waiting for their requests is nothing wrong but if they asking for more info, it will make the waiting longer.

Also given that I haven't yet done any medicals or police checks, and the time frame for FBI checks is listed as 16-18 weeks, if i sent off for those and they arrived in that time frame it would be pretty much square on the 2nd anniversary of applying for the 820/801 and three years of de facto, it would be great if I could just get the 801 directly as that's how long they seem to require for de facto to get PR. One can dream even though I know we are all different.

Also should I be including evidence since I applied as well or are they just looking for stuff from the year before I applied?

Someone was saying the other day that if your 820 is processed near your eligibility date for 801, they sometimes grant PR straight away, so it might not be out of the question!

This is of course assuming they accept the evidence we submit. Still annoyed they've placed this seven day deadline on me with no communication since March. I really would have thought they'd have tried to get in touch sooner! just anxious mainly hoping my birth certificate arrives in time. I have a scanned copy my dad sent by email I wish I could print out and get certified...the one he is sending me is the one they have had I think since I was born. It is labelled as a Certificate of Birth Registration (it certifies that a certificate of birth has been filed under my name) and that the original is stored in the state capital or the locality I was born and that you can request a copy of that, panicking that immigration wants a copy of the original and not the one my parents are sending.

Did you apply online? If so, you should just be able to upload the scan without getting it certified as long as it's in colour and high quality.
