Yeah, I was thinking that too in my paranoid state yesterday.

The problem is, some of the people telling me on this forum I may have made a grave error are migrant agents. So I take the criticism seriously.

This morning I'm not as worked up over it, as I've slept off the jetlag and stress of it all. I think we'll be fine. Yes we have a kid together and will have another one in Jan, our commitment to each other is clear.

A work visa for my wife just wasn't applicable in our situation. Not much work for pregnant, Italian lawyers in Australia...

I have said a few times that DIBP would be crazy not to monitor this forum, there have been a number of posters that clearly are looking to find a way to get any permanent visa including fake marriages. Information given like country, age, gender and months and years is very easy for DIBP to match to a application.

I think MarcelluuS will probably be ok due children, but I would not recommend to others. Yes the door was left open, but no need to kick it down - walk in slowly, so it does not get slammed shut on others is my suggestion.

I am sure the rules are flexible based on the situation.

Quite some years ago in my last marriage, i had to come into Australia on a visitor visa and immediately applied for permanent stay to be able to stay with my Australian wife and child.
I used the ETA to avoid the offshore options but immigration accepted it.

Many people on a PMV application, including us, are able to apply for a Visitor visa to stay in Australia before getting the PMV and then applying for the onshore 820.
We specified our reason as being able to stay in Australia while we sort out permanency.

I am sure they look at the available information and decide accordingly.

They do not appear to enforce the "tourism only" rule blindly.

I noticed your time line shows you can get 801 2 yrs after lodgement of the 820? So thats how it works, after you submit it, not from the time accepted? Thats awesome if so!

Thats how I read it. I think i got it right.

About two years after you lodged your application for this visa, you will be assessed for a permanent Partner visa (subclass 801).

Just some questions regarding our application.
Applied on the 21st feb 2016 and Bridging visa granted same day.Still no case officer yet,is this normal ?

My mother was a witness on the already uploaded form 888 and has since passed away,should I amend this now or wait till I get a case officer, or can her statement still be used even though deceased?

Many have said not to do medicals or police checks until a case officer is assigned as they expire,is this still the status quo or should we be doing this now as we have already been waiting for 8 months ?

Lastly my partner was unwittingly an overstay in China for 18 months.Long story, she is Filipina and her work agent and employer held her passport from her whilst telling her she had all correct visas.She did not, and was subsequently voluntary detained for 21 days then asked to leave China when her contract ended.Her detention was all done with the assistance of the Philippines Consulate in Guangzhou.No charges or blacklists of China were recorded against her.Our problem is, as she was never a temporary residence of China they wont issue a Police Clearance and this is a requirement for our application.Can we ask a waiver for this and if so are they usually successful ?

P.S I am the Australian sponsor/partner.

Regards Ron

Hi Ron

As for the CO, that's pretty normal, I've applied 12 months 17 days ago on 30-Sept-2015 and I haven't heard anything except a general email 12 weeks ago. Nothing else, unfortunately, as the processing times are 12-15 months...

Hey renekara - I applied early November, and I've not had a generic email yet. October applicants seem to be the latest that I've seen on these forums who have received a generic email a few weeks ago, so hopefully it's just they haven't done this for later applicants yet (unless you've seen otherwise?)

Anyone on this forum that has applied for 820 in November/December 2015 and got the generic email asking to provide more info?

I did my medical and police check at the beginning, but I am bit concern that I haven't been contacted at all from immigration. (Except the acknowledgement letter and bridging visa when I first applied)

I am freaking out now...

Thanks
