Medicals: 5 Jan 2017
Uploaded Police Check: 6 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!

I'm happy for you....yet feeling very frustrated! I also applied online...onshore...from a low risk country...also Canada even! And I have been waiting over 16 months now....getting pretty impatient

Can't believe you got it after 9 months. Do you know where it was processed?

I'm coming up to the 12 month mark (19th January) and haven't heard a peep out of them.

Is it any easier to apply for a new passport once I have my 820? I need a new passport before July because I'm planning to go to New Zealand with my husband and my family. My current passport annoyingly expires just before the trip is going to happen! Debating whether to apply for it now or wait another few weeks and see if I get my 820.

If I apply for a new passport, what do I need to do for immigration?

Reading that people who applied after me have had contact from immigration/visas granted is making me nervous!

Hi all, partner just got her email for request checklist and details today! We submitted 14 months ago. Good luck to everyone else.

Just a couple of questions seeing if anyone has seen this happen, we knew her police check was expiring hence we submitted new ones a few months ago. However it has been requested on the checklist. What does this mean? Do we need to submit it again or get a new check?

We also continuously upload pictures and evidence about our relationship however they added "Evidence of your relationship with your de facto parntner". We don't have anything recent since our trip over the new year break.

Hey,

With regards to the police check if you guys are married make sure it is in the both the maiden name and married name. My original police check was just in my maiden name and then they requested one for my married name too.

Hi thanks for this, I double checked the police check and found out that we haven't uploaded her country of origin check. As well as realised it had expired October last year...

This was a big mistake when we did the renewal of the Australian police check we totally forgot that one and getting a new one may take weeks! We will upload it regardless, do you think having it being expired will jeopardize our chances?

Anyone know if the Stat dec forms 888 can be filled out on the computer then printed and signed or do they have to be filled in by pen? The forms are in PDF format which allows electronic filling out but on the front page of the form at the top, it states to "use black pen and write neatly in english using block letters". Would this mean it has to be manually filled out by pen after printing it or does it mean just black ink colour.

Almost all of mine (4 out of the 5) were typed, then printed and signed with ink. I'm not sure that it much matters.

Ok thanks, I was just wondering if they want genuine form filling by hand by witnesses etc. Would this be the same for all other forms that require filling such as stat dec from each partner and history details etc?
Has anyone else out there had issues filling the forms or writing letters electronically then printing and signing?

Most of my documents were typed including 888 and 80 and then signed/witnessed with ink where applicable. DIBP just asked me for further information so I'm assuming the stuff they do have is no issue..
