It has been over 12 months since we applied for the 820/801 and an AFP check is now required. We processed the AFP check request online yesterday. Hopefully it should not be long before we can submit this to DIBP. We have 28 days to supply this according to our email.

Relieved that there is positive confirmation that a case officer has been assigned and is processing our application.
If you're worried about the time limit, you can just show them evidence that you've applied for your AFP check and that you're waiting to receive it.

Just another question to the group. I rang immigration yesterday to advise that we need to travel outside the country and was told that I need to contact the WA office as our application is in WA. Is there anything that we know about process times for different states? Thank you!

We have settled down for the long wait.
Hi pdub,

Spoke with our migration agent in detail about this low and high risk scenario, she advised the following in laments terms: "yes, such a list does exist, although it states that any country NOT on the ETA list is considered high risk. IMMI cannot write on the website that there are exclusions and on case by case basis in order not to cause confusion. Brazil in no way is a high risk country and the only reason some countries are not actually listed on the ETA list is purely down to the commonwealth relations those countries listed have with Australia. If a country had a significant amount of overstayers in Australia, civilian or political unrest then FURTHER checks would be carried out."
At this stage for whatever reason almost every application in December 2014 is taking 14-15 months minimum.
Our agent is in contact with other migration agents who have confirmed the timeframe to be accurate.

Hope that helps

You need to fill out a BVB form and post it to the WA office.
Attn: Temp Partner Visa, Locked Bag 7, Northbridge, WA, 6865 is the address.

My 820 visa was just approved via the WA office, it took 14 months.

Sorry further more, yes on the IMMI website is pretty black and white in terms of language but I do believe what our migration has explained to me today considering she has always been very professional in the way she has dealt with our application. Never once has she ever made any promise of an approval nor has she given us any hints/answers or suggestions on how we should apply. She told us exactly what she needed from us for a decision ready application and she was only there to help guide us to ensure we had provided it all.

The conversation we had was all based on actual situations she personally handled.

Hi Meia81 - Glad you got it sorted with your agent! It's a rollercoaster ride! I expect 14 - 15 months approx either way but it doesn't stop me checking the status in our immi account every week.
