There must have been something unusual in your friend's case that you/she weren't aware of. 8 months for PMV to 820 is pretty much unheard of. It rarely takes more than a few months at most - usually several weeks or less.

We are at 4.5 months waiting and nothing so far, but we aren't expecting anything for a year or so. We chose not to front load medicals for the reason that we expected a long wait.
Hi Star hunter!
If I may asked you,, does DIAC required medical now for 820 applicant? Thanks

They have always been required. It is just that when you come from a PMV and then lodge a 820 you aren't required to get new medicals unless asked for them.

Hi ghielyn - thanks for sharing your journey with us all. You seem to be making steady progress, even though it is taking a long time. The decision is getting closer. Perhaps, if it takes 2 years, you might get an 801 PR visa immediately. We all have our fingers crossed for you. Keep patient and strong. I'll be watching this thread for your next post. Take care and good luck to you both.

20 months is a very long time for someone not from one of the highest-risk countries, ghielyn, but it does sound like they're actively looking at your application, which is good. In just four months you'll be eligible for permanent residency. If they take that long to approve your 820, you'll go straight to PR. If they approve it before then, you'll be able to apply for your PR as soon as you hit 24 months since your 820 application. Keep hanging in there.. you'll get there!

Thank you so much and hoping for a positive outcome..
I've been here for nearly 5 years, student visa on 2010 in Queensland, then my husband and I start chatting on April 2010, and were in a long distance relationship (his in NSW) but visit us every 3 months in QLD till we decided to live in together and move to NSW on January 2012, got a simple but solemn wedding on July 2012 then applied our visa.. We have a long history, ups and downs and our relationship going stronger each day.. Although its kinda bit frustrating coz its hard to find a job with bridging visa. Were happy and waiting all together..

Thumbs up

Hey everyone,

Firstly congrats College girl, it looks like your visa was finally accepted andyou have got married. Fantastic!

So we submitted my 820 (from PMV) on 28th March in Melbourne. I have received the email stating they have received it and I am now on the bridging visa A. Now playing the waiting game! This time it is so much better though because we are in Australia.
