The wait
 
Hi Expatin
I went through much the same frustration/annoyance late last year as you are now. So I really understand. There was an 820 grant today that took about six months - but this seems to be rare, in this forum anyway. I think DIBP should properly review and update their advertised processing standards if they are not being met in reasonable numbers. We are not the only ones who have had our hopes raised, only to have them smashed when reality hits. Cheers and best wishes. :)

Congratulations!
 
Hi Ghielyn - Wonderful news. I can see from your earlier posts that you have waited a long time. Best wishes to you both as you enjoy your life together in Oz. Cheers. :)

PS - When you have time (after celebrating) it would help others waiting here if you shared the timing and processing details of your application. Thanks. :)

Hi, just sent my application in yesterday!
I'm from Sweden and I sent in a decision ready application hoping for a quick procession time. But reading on this forum is really dragging my expectations down. I have been thinking the processing time is 6 months from reading on the page the immi website always refer to, but I, realising now I might be stuck for more than a year!

I'm on a visitor visa and I'm already dying, after 3 months with out work, and I can't imagine how one more year will be like!

The long wait begins...
 
Hi Moa05 - Welcome to the 820 waiting room. When does your visitor visa expire? Your Bridging Visa A will kick in when your visitor visa expires and you will have full working rights. Remember, you can already apply for Medicare, so that may help a bit. The average processing time is currently showing as from 12-15 months. Cheers and best wishes... :)

For those who still waiting, I would like to share all the ups and downs of my visa application. I arrive in Australia on February 2010 with my daughter (single parent) as a student visa, sponsored by my mom in Queensland. Then I met my husband thru chat and personally met him March 2011 (his from NSW) then we got married July 2012 before my visa expired.

August 20, 2012 Applied partner visa in Sydney, same day my visa expires
August 21, 2012 Received my bridging visa a

Then haven't heard from immigration in 2013

November 2013 email immigration regarding medical hap ID (we haven't submitted medical as immi agent said that wait till they said to do so)

End of January 2014 they informed me that they transfered my application to Melbourne, and Melbourne contacted me regarding the medical and AFP check of my husband.

February 14 2014 we submitted all documents and medical before the 28th day.

End of March 2014 they didn't inform i had a case officer I just knew coz its not team4 but instead a case officer name and asking for additional documents regarding my relationship and custody issues of my daughter

15th of April 2014 submitted the documents that I believe could help to support my daughter's application.

Today.. after 1 year and 9 months.. Granted.. Received an envelope with our photo and other original documents.
With the documents we don't submitted much coz we only live together for 6 months and pretty much we had a long distance relationship. But as long as your genuine in relationship everything will follow.

I had no idea I would be aloud to work on a bridging visa! If I would have known that when I applied for my tourist visa I would just have got 3 months but now got a 12 months visitor visa. But I read earlier in this thread that you can cancel your visa and jump straight on your bridging visa? Is that correct? :) I've already got my Medicare so that's all sorted! All I want now is a job, I really want to do something with my days and not just wall around like a living dead! Haha!
