I've emailed the DIBP to see how things were going with my application (lodged on Jan 16) and they surprisingly responded two days later with the following.

To be fair to all applicants the partner visa applications are assessed in date order from time of lodgement.

Current processing timeframe for partner visa applications is 12 to 15 months. Currently applications lodged in November 2015 are being allocated to case officers for assessment. Once your application is allocated the case officer will assess all information provided and request any documents/requirements needed which includes health and character requirements.

Most health and character requirements are valid for 12 months but some requirements may be valid for further time or be able to be extended in individual cases which will be assessed by the case officer when they assess your visa application.



So again, I guess we just need to wait and soon it will be our turns to celebrate

I haven't had any contact from immi at all! I applied early Dec 2015, online from Melbourne.
I applied online mine was November 2 2015 so maybe you will get message soon. I applied for BVB after it got approved they sent me an email for additional requirement.

Hi,

Medicals: 5 Jan 2017

Approved: 9 Jan 2017

Very happy! I had applied for a BVB for a work assignment on 30 Nov 2016 which was approved on the 21st of December which probably led to them requesting the additional information.

Good luck everyone!
Congrats!! hope mine will approve soon too....

Smile Question about 820 partner visa

Hi! I'm from the Philippines. My partner is an Australian Citizen (born and raised), he moved to the Philippines 3 years ago and we've been living together for about 2 1/2 years now. He wants us to migrate to Australia. I want to know if:

We can apply for a tourist visa, go to Australia using the tourist visa and lodge the application for the Partner Visa (subclass 820) in Australia and get a bridging visa while waiting for the Partner Visa's results.

Has anyone done this or tried to do this? Were you guys successful?

My partner had his partner subclass 820 visa granted today ))))

We applied on 5 Nov 2015, including full medicals. The first contact we had from the Dept of Immigration was on 4/1/17 (14 months later!), asking for an Australian Police Clearance and Form 80 (Character Assessment). I uploaded the Form 80 the next day and the Police Clearance this morning, and within 5 hours received notification that the visa had been granted. There were no other requests for additional information.

Good luck to everyone!

In mid December 2016 I received an e-mail from immi asking me to complete medical assessment and provide a police clearance. As I was overseas at the time, I only did my medicals a few days ago, and received and uploaded my police clearance today.

Applied online February 2016, first contact from immigration was that e-mail in December. Haven't heard anything about a case officer, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an approval soon anyway!
