Onshore De Facto Partner 820, from Netherlands
 
Hi Everyone!

I am from The Netherlands and submitted my application 3 may 2014! Logged it online, guess it will be processed in Melbourne (?) as we live here.

- Met my boyfriend in Dec 2010. After 1,5 years of long distance, he decided to come and live with me in The Netherlands for 2 years. After not being able to find a job after our studies (due to bad economy) we decided to go to Australia! As we didn't want to apply offshore and have to be separated again, I came here a year ago (19 may) on a Working Holiday Visa. So almost a year here and really loving it! We are together now for 4 years.

I really hope that the processing won't take 13 months!! Shocking long!

I just realised that I can apply for medicare and work full time! :) That sounds really good, although bit anxious on how employers in interviews will react if I am still on bridging visa A....? Anyone want to share their experiences?

Date of lodgement : 3 May 2014
Visa: Onshore 820
Office: Melbourne (?) Logged Online
Case Officer assigned: No
Visa granted: No

Will keep you posted too! So good to read all these stories here :) Will follow all updates.

Cheers,
Tess

Welcome...
 
Hi TessV - welcome to the 820 waiting room. Thanks for sharing your story so far. Remember that you BVA does not kick in until your WHV ends. But you can claim Medicare now. Best wishes and good luck to you both. Cheers... :)

Hi College Girl,

If you have an idea of how much does it cost for an onshore 820/801 visa if I lodge on June 03, 2014, I would appreciate it very much if you could write it here..

I am a PMV visa holder ,granted last 23 Dec. 2013 with 2 dependents ages 18 years and above. At one point last month, I checked online and it was 575 each for dependent while 1,125.00aud for applicant. Yesterday, I checked it again and there are two figures shown there, the 2,275 for the three of us and 2,900 for the other figure ...Do you have an idea,please?

Thank you.

Where online are you checking? The definitive information on cost can be found on Immi's Visa Pricing Table, here: Fees and charges for visas. The category you are looking for is the Partner (Subclass 820/801) visa application by Prospective Marriage (Subclass 300) visa holder (bolding mine). It states very clearly there that it is $1145 for you, and $575 for each applicant 18 or over, so that would be the $2295 figure. Where are you getting the other prices you're looking at?

Of course, these are prices now. There's no guarantee Immi won't raise the cost of this visa between now and June 3, and there's nothing I or anyone else can do to predict that for you.

CollegeGirl 05-17-2014 09:11 AM

By the way, it wouldn't have been $1125 for the applicant a month ago. It's been $1145 for quite a while now. I think you may have misrecorded that figure.

CollegeGirl 05-17-2014 09:14 AM

Actually, I think I may know where you're getting that figure. There's another category that says:

Quote:

Partner (Subclass 820/801) visa application by:
former Prospective Marriage (Subclass 300) visa holder or the equivalent which existed under the 1989 or 1993 Migration Regulations and
person who entered Australia before 19 December 1989, was engaged to an Australian citizen or permanent resident at that time and subsequently married that person.
This does NOT apply to you. This applies to people who entered Australia before 19 December 1989.

visa 820/801 cost
 
Thank you College Girl for a very clear informative way of explaining about the cost. I read it in Partner's visa (820/801) ceased PMV 300. that is the term used and the cost is 2,900 for the three of us.
Anyway, I will just use the rate you s tated as I believed they haven't increase the yet.
Again thank you so much,College Girl.

CollegeGirl 05-17-2014 01:31 PM

"Ceased" PMV 300? That would mean that was the rate for an expired PMV 300 or a visa type no longer in existence. I'd have to see it in context to tell you for sure what it was saying, but it doesn't sound like that applies to you either. "Ceased" means stopped or ended.

lois 05-19-2014 05:06 AM

Hi everyone! My visa was approved today! It only took 5 months even though they warned me of 13 month waiting times!

I applied onshore on December 11th 2013, I am from the UK and my partner is Australian.

SO happy :)
