I believe that more information for permanent residency (801) will be requested two years from the time you applied for your 820. (For instance, I applied at the end of March this year... so regardless of when my 820 is granted, I believe I'd be up for 801 consideration in March 2015. Someone correct me if I'm wrong about this!)

Re: frontloading health checks/police checks... part of me wishes I had done that, just because I've been stressing so much about both of them the last eight months. I think if I'd frontloaded I wouldn't have started stressing about getting them done again until closer to the 1-year mark. But who knows! No good way to go about it, really.

In regards to that, just made my medical appointment for Monday. Fingers crossed once it's in my visa will start moving along! I wonder if hoping for a visa by the new year is too much of a stretch... probably.

Hey, I thought the time starts counting from the day one you get your 820 visa? I applied in August this year, I got a case officer around two weeks ago asking me to send additional documents and I did it aournd a week ago. It all happens fast but the only problem for me is I am going to be away from australia for 3 months!!! I thought it was going to take a long long time for my visa so I applied for BVB to go back home first. Now I am so worried that they are going to put my case off. Does anyone know how soon you normally get the visa approved after being assigned with a case officer?

Thanks for your response InkHearted, 2 years sounds about right. I wonder how prespective employers view TR against PR, I've been told by my HR Manager that TR and PR is viewed as the same, Does everyone agree with this view ?? I

I just did a quick google to double-check I wasn't leading anyone astray. This quote, from activemigration.com, says what I found on a few different sites:

"If you meet all the legal criteria for the grant of the visa, you may be granted a temporary Partner visa (subclass 820). This visa remains valid until a decision is made on your permanent visa, which is usually two years after you initially applied for your visa."

So it is two years after the application date, not the grant date.

Daniel--I'm not sure if everyone does, but I know I'll be much more confident in applying for jobs when I can say I have temporary residency, rather than just being in Bridging Visa limbo. I feel like there's much more certainty with the 820 than BVA, and I'd guess that many employers probably feel the same way.

Thanks heaps Ink Hearted you seem to very well versed on all aspects. Absolutely I would agree with recruiters, The HR manager essentially said that TR and PR will be viewed as the same thing, BVA's bascially meant that unless your hiring manager can prove that a PR/AC can't do the job as good as you , you can't hire them.

Inkhearted is correct. It is two years from when you APPLY for the 820.

Chillytree, no one can tell you how soon your visa will or won't be approved. Generally the wait is 13-18 months for an 820. There are a few people who get theirs faster, but they are the exception rather than the rule. They're not just going to stop processing your visa because you're going abroad. If for some reason you're one of those lucky people whose are ready faster, they'll get it all set to go and then grant it when you've informed them you're back in the country and gotten your BVA reinstated. Quit worrying.

Waiting waiting waiting..... at least we are together.

We applied 13 march 2013 with everything complete, and so far have no news except that our app has been transferred from Perth to Sydney. Hubby is from Brasil and on bva like most. We moved from Darwin to Melbourne about 4 months ago.

Job search is extremely frustrating, have been applying for an average of 20 jobs per week .... honestly. Bva is not good to be on for a job seeker. So I understand your hardship and frustration here, but keep your heads up and keep smiling cos tomorrow is a new day, and a new year is almost here and I'm sure we will all receive the wonderful news eventually

P.s...... So happy to know we are not alone
