820/801 applied Oct 15

We applied October 21 2015 online. Received an email on July 26 2016 (generic) asking for us to upload all information. We uploaded all police clearances (Australia, FBI, New York State and Argentina) in August and received the medical clearance this week.
Waiting patiently!

I hope my application won't take ages to get approved!
At least you guys have received the generic email to upload more info.
I still haven't received it. I was wondering maybe it's because I have everything uploaded, but it doesn't look like that is the case..... This visa process is so exhausting and nerve-racking...

Both of your applications shouldn't be far of getting approved! Hopefully, there will be progress with them all!

Lodged 13th Oct

Finally I can legitimately post to this group!

My Italian wife and I flew into Perth from Europe the other day with our daughter (already an Aussie citizen by descent thanks to moi!) and the following morning through the haze of shocking jet-lag I lodged and paid (ouch!) for the 820.

I basically did a bare-bones application to get to the payment page, then did my sponsorship thang that arvo, and now I'm attaching all the files, photos and bits and piece we accumulated over the months.

Got the BVA immediately, which is nice and promptly marched down to Medicare with BVA confirmation in hand and sorted the wife out with a medicare number. This is important since she's 6 months pregnant and obviously needs medical attention over next few months. Thankfully we're in the King Edward catchment area, so it's a good result.

Sure, I should be licking my wounds after spending A$7K, but I'm just relieved now that my wife has medical coverage and doesn't have to worry about getting kicked out of the country at 9 months pregnant when her eVisitor visa runs out, haha!

Feeling confident. I'm sure in the months ahead doubts and paranoia will creep up on me, but right now i'm enjoying this moment. Cheers.

That's good to hear. What visa did she enter in on if you don't mind me asking? I'm here now with wife on 600 visa and she's prego without NFS. You applied for 820 as soon as landing, whereas others have suggested waiting at least a couple of months. Maybe it depends on what visa one enters on.

It is a eVisitor, when to lodge application will depend on a few things like length of relationship, children and what evidence you have.

If that is all good then a application soon after arrival is fine, if not it is a race to get evidence before visa expires and lodge the 820.

But with pregnancy it might need a trade off on how long to gather evidence before requiring Medicare.

If a lot of evidence already compiled then shouldn't be so bad right?
As long as application is made and paid for then should be able to register with medicare soon after that.

But with pregnancy it might need a trade off on how long to gather evidence before requiring Medicare.

Could you elaborate please? Generally you can keep uploading documents after lodging application so registration with medicare is still possible whilst gathering further evidence and documents to upload, that's correct isn't it?

Yes as soon as paid and get the reply back from IMMI (normally within 24 hrs) you can apply Medicare.

Depending on how your wife is going with pregnancy will determine your urgency to get Medicare cover. I would probably spend the next week or so getting joint bank accounts, name on lease and other things. I would also take a screen shot of your offshore application you started.

Then decide to lodge an onshore soon, I would not wait till end of current Visitor Visa. You always intended to lodge a Partner Visa application, but now just doing it onshore.

Yes keep uploading after.

Lodging as soon aa you land on a tourist visa can seen as a breach of the tourist visa conditions.

Well, in the conditions it doesn't say anything about a "no further stay" condition.


Visa Conditions:

8115 - BUSINESS VISITOR ACTIVITY
8201 - MAXIMUM 3 MONTHS STUDY
8527 - TUBERCULOSIS FREE
8528 - NO CRIM CONVICTIONS

I understand it mightn't be in the "spirit" of the eVisitor Visa, but it's certainly not a breach. By applying for the 820 we've communicated our change of circumstances. And I'm sure we're not the first European couple to use the simple tourist visa to gain access to Oz in order to then apply for partner visa.

Had a mate who were concerned about a randomly generated no further stay clause for his Brazilian wife when they too were planning to make the move back home. Their migrant agent told them to roll the dice anyway and apply for the tourist visa. In the end she didn't cop the no further stay clause and they applied for her 820 a couple weeks after landing.

Also, as regards Medicare. As my wife is an Italian citizen she would have been entitled to 6 months Medicare coverage due to the reciprocal arrangement the government has with Italy. All I've done really is extend that period by another 6 months and also removed any need for her to leave the country to renew her tourist visa before the 3 months are up.

A tourist visa is designed to do tourist items. DIBP if they want can cancel the tourist visa as that clearly was not your intention.

Most wait atleast 1 to 2 months so it appears they changed their minds. Applying within days is a clear breach of not coming for tourist items and having no intention to return home.
