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?
Today marks 12 months since I submitted my application (paid via BPAY so it was only officially accepted on 19th).

Any advice on the passport thing?

Are they still saying waiting times are 12-15 months?

You can renew your passport and inform DIBP of it. There is a form. Or, wait another a few months. If you've hit the 12 month mark already, you could end up with your visa soon. But, it's DIBP...who really knows? It really depends on how long it takes to renew your passport.

Would I still need to inform DIBP when I get a new passport even if my 820 has come through?

I imagine it will take a few weeks for my new passport to come through but not really sure. Just want to make sure I give myself enough time really. And want to avoid applying for a BVB - really hope I get my visa before July! (This week would be nice )

Yes, you will need to inform them. You have to in order to keep your visa updated. Hopefully, you get your visa soon!

Hi all!
It's been a bit more than 10 months since I first submitted my application but I have got nothing from them yet. I had to applied for BVB 3 times to return home due to some family issues (I wasn't in the country for about 10 weeks in total). Just wondering if that will delay the processing time?
Also, since I am closer to the 12-15 months waiting time, should I start gathering my health check and police check or should I wait until I have a CO (didn't do it in the first place because I heard the documents will expire before I even get assigned a CO)

Thank you so much and good luck to everyone who's playing the waiting game

Passport: Hong Kong
Applied: Online, Onshore (Adelaide)
Applied: 6 March 2016

We applied within days of each other. My agent had me do medical and police clearances At the end of November. I was asked for more info about a week ago. Personally I would do them now and hope it doesn't take another 12 months for them to process your visa..

Paper 40SP?

Hi guys, long time lurker here. After almost 15 months, I've finally received an email (aside from confirmation) from immigration which was a request for more information.
There was only one form requested, and while reading the email I assumed it was the 80SP, as I've seen other applicants from low risk countries having to fill it out. However, I was a bit surprised to see it was actually the 40SP sponsorship form! I'm a bit worried now because I distinctly remember my partner filling out the form online, and us commenting on how repetitive it was! In fact, on my immi account under applications, it has my partner's name with a "sponsorship form", and "submitted" next to it! We've been uploading his documents directly to his application submissions page....I thought you weren't allowed to do this unless you filled out the equivalent to the 40SP online??
Sorry, but I'm a bit confused and worried now. Does this mean for the last 15 months we didn't have a 40SP or sponsorship form (online or otherwise) attached? Did we have to fill out the 40SP in addition to filling out the form online all along?

EDIT: To make matters more odd, I just logged into immi, and now my partner's sponsorship application says "approved" (knock on wood)

Just lodged my application online today. Here's the long wait.
When should I do the police check and health check? Maybe after 6 months? Or do I wait for the case office to tell me to do that?

Welcome! I submitted my 820 visa application in the beginning of October 2016. It is really up to your discretion for medical and police checks. Some people do them right away, others wait about 6 months, while others wait to hear from the CO. I just did my FBI background check and am in the process of doing my ANP check. I needed to do them for my teaching registration anyway, so killed two birds with one stone. I plan to do medicals in the next couple of months. That way, it's all done before they ask.

Best of luck! We're all in limbo now.
