Didn't someone say that Immi is now quoting 15-18 months? It keeps going, and they'll just have to issue 801s at the same time as the 820. Guess that's not such a bad thing, if you're trying to look on the bright side of things.

Yeah I thought I read that too. So crazy! But hopefully less paperwork?

I'd hope so! It will be the reason I will slowly add a few things over the next year or so, to show continuing relationship. For instance, we are engaged and plan to marry at some point in the next year, so we'll show all of those things. And anything else that pops up.

What do you have to do for the 801? Are there more forms or is it just more evidence?

Back in July, I got asked to provide form 80, medicals etc - just a routine email, not a case officer request. I submitted the form 80 and medicals(as everything else they requested had already been submitted) - and I have heard nothing since. Hopefully some good news will arrive soon!
Same here... I applied in September last year and the first thing I do upon waking is checking my emails to see whether something has come in! It's like high school when you're waiting for your crush to call haha! I'm also from a low risk country and was asked in July to provide any information that might still be missing, nothing since! Finger's crossed we get something soon, the wait is annoying!

I've got a health insurance related question, I'm on a 457 visa and waiting for my 820 to hopefully come any day now (we applied in Sep 2015, low risk country, have since gotten married, lots of evidence, etc). I'm still on my very expensive private health insurance which was required for my 457 visa, I also have the interim (blue) medicare card. I wanted to change my PHI to a lower cover but have been told that I need to remain on a "457 approved cover" until I get my 820. Does anyone know if this is correct? The guy from my health fund said if I changed cover I would be in breach of my visa conditions. I'm just not sure if that is correct or if her was just keen for me to stay on an expensive cover instead of switching to a much cheaper one.

From what I understand, we do have some things to complete (on our myimmi account) and yes, more evidence. Maybe one of the folks who've already applied for their 801 can elaborate more for us.

Health insurance​

You must have adequate health insurance unless you are covered by Medicare.


Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457)

Thanks for your reply, that's what I thought too! I thought maybe there is a difference if I only have an interim medicare card as opposed to a full (green) card.

The only difference is the colour.

Other than for maybe tax reasons you don't need any private health cover.

In fact here in Darwin it is best not to have private cover, most medical is done in the public hospital so you actually only get a private bed in the Private Hospital (unless cosmetic).

I had 2 stays in Darwin Public Hospital, very bad burns (face, neck, arms and legs) and was treated by the best burns doctor in Australia (possibly World) she also treated many from the Bali Bombings - The other was Melioidosis (Nightcliff Gardeners Disease) that had (still does in many countries) a mortality rate of about 20%, again treated by one of the best infections disease doctors in the World.

My plug for the great work done by staff at the Public Hospital in Darwin that saved my life twice, thanks again.
