I submitted with a migration agent so can't see (or haven't set up to see) what's going on.

I'm not even at the year mark yet, March 2016 application, medicals and police cert Sep 2016, more info requested Jan 2017, provided Jan 2017 - so now just waiting - hence my nervous tic that could go on for months yet

Current visa - 457 and made redundant in July - bridging visa won't be in effect for a couple of years (so probably never).

I actually don't think I ever put a timeline on here so this is the first time

Congratulations!! Very happy for you after last week's conversation!

Where did you send your email to? I might email if I don't hear in the next couple of weeks. It's been 13 months nearly.

Hello guys,

I have applied in March 2016, since then I have not heard anything. I have submitted almost everything, but medical check. Pretty much I will do medical checks withing a couple of months.

I will wait a couple of months ( hit 12 months waiting) and if I won't hear anything, I will try to contact the Department. Does anyone know contact number or email for De Facto visa? I just getting harder to wait.

Application Date: 12.3.2016
Police Checks Submitted: 30.01.2017
Medicals Submitted: Sometime soon

Hi,

I've also applied for the 820 visa, in a couple of days it will be 13 months since I applied. My status is still 'received' and I have had no contact from the department since my application. I'm getting impatient now, especially after reading that some people got it before the 12 month mark, and people have had contact with the Dept (requests for more information). Is there a specific email address where I can ask for an update? I have applied online from Adelaide, I don't know if that matters?

Thanks

According to the border.gov werbsite I can email them if I've been waiting 13 months. It says "We are unable to provide progress reports for applications lodged less than 13 months ago. If your application was lodged more than 13 months ago, the preferred mechanism for seeking an update on the status of that application is to email the relevant processing team as advised in the letter acknowledging your application."... however, in the letter where they acknowledge my application, they do not give me an email address so I don't know where to send my query too . Can anyone help me?

If I were you, I'd get the medical done soon. It won't expire for another 12 months, and I doubt you'll be waiting that long for your visa to be processed. It's better to do it now, than be caught out without it later on...you'll only have 28 days to submit it after it's requested by the department.

I know it's hard to wait, but a lot of us have waited 12+ months for ours. If you get your medicals done, then you can focus on making the appointment, which may distract you from waiting

Thank you very much HRose,
I will definitely do it sometime soon! very soon!

I am happy for others when they got their visa, but then, I started thinking "what about me?" Well, I have to wait like rest of us.

Thanks again and hope we will hear from the department very soon!

Hi Mish,
My application confirmation letter was signed by the office in Belconnen, ACT. It didn't provide me with an email address though... do you still think it's worth it emailing the WA office?

Also, does anyone know about getting the 801 straight away (without having the 820 first)? I read that if people have been living together for over three years they can skip the temporary stage and go straight to the 801 permanent visa. We were living together a little over three years when we applied, and I really hope I don't have go to through this again once it gets approved....
