Happy news - our 820 visa approval was emailed to us this week! Took just short of a year. Low risk country, very strong application. We applied in February 2015 with all pieces submitted except for the medical. IMMI emailed in early January saying to schedule the medical so I did it. About 5 weeks after the initial January email, the approval came. No other communications from the department.

I followed up with thanks and a question about being considered for the 801 directly as we had applied after our third anniversary. I was told (only 1 business day later, wow) that we'd be eligible in December this year and that they'd be in touch a few months prior.

Here's hoping the timelines speed up so it's less than 12-15 months wait for approvals.

Best of luck, everyone and thanks for your support!

Hi everyone,

Been living in Australia since 11 Feb 2014 for university. Met my partner here in May 2014, and moved in July 2014. On 14 July 2015, we applied for residency. I see that some people from Apr-June 2015 are starting to get processed so hopefully mine will start soon as well. But just curious if they look at look at the fact I've been living here for 2 years now as a positive for my application? Or does it not really have any bearing on it?

The 2 years living together only helps form the genuineness of the relationship it doesn't have a bearing on how long it will take to grant.

Hi! I am finally applying onshore tomorrow. Have all the initial docs ready to go to apply online. Thanks all for your help so far, its taken a year or so to get here!

I have a couple of final questions if possible? Question 21.-24 - Country of current residence? Should I put UK as where I am from as currently on a tourist visa, however we have an apartment we are staying in. Residential address UK? And then should I put my address in Aus for correspondence?


Part G - Question 55. What is your current relationship with your sponsor. Should I put engaged (as we are) or defacto as that is the visa we are applying for (not PMV). We are not getting married for another year or so.

Finally, I have my original birth certificates and all other docs, can I just scan and upload in colour instead of photocopying and getting them certified?

Thanks!!

Danny

Country of residence is where you live not where you are on holiday.
Re question 55 have you lived together for 12 months consecutively? Then you can apply for defacto.
If you apply online scanned colour uploads are fine.
If paper then you need to certify

Awesome, thanks very much!

Yeah we have lived together since 2014 so all good on that front. We would be applying for defacto, however it still asks what our relationship status is, we are engaged though, so should we put that or just defacto?

Thanks again!

Sorry changed my tack halfway through, sorry for the confusion.
I bent put down defacto then in future commitment mention you are engaged. We mentioned that we see keen to start a family but due to factors at holding off until visa is granted as I want to be part of the whole process
