We never received any communication from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. We never were notified with a Case Officer assesment or never been requested for more info.

The last thing we did in our appication, was last week, when we uploaded a file with facebook pictures from the last year (to cover the period since we applied - December 2015 - until now - January 2017). I was thinking of writting a new joint statement with some relevant information for this year, but it wasnt necessary. We received the grant notification letter today!!!!!

One more thing: when we applied, we didnt have 12 consecutive months of living together. We only had 10. However, as we decided to start our De Facto Relationship in December 2013, and after that we had been apart from each other only temporary, we consider that we complied with the 12 month requirement but not consecutive. And it worked

We are extremelly happy and now is time to celebrate and wait for the Permanent Visa!!!!

Best of lucks to everybody!!!!!

Mariella

I am a longtime reader of this thread and it has gotten me through a ton of hard times and questions!

I applied for my 820/801 Visa Onshore on May 10th 2016. I am currently waiting for my 820 approval and have heard nothing of course. Today I got a request for a form 80 to be filled out. I'm a little nervous because I believe I filled out a form 80 with my application and wonder if they will cross reference my answers? I've lived in a few different places over the past 10 years and am worried I will make a mistake?
Any idea how strict they are about these things? (I'm talking being off by potentially a month or so when it comes to moving addresses)
Also does this mean that they are assessing my application and could potentially have an answer?
Fingers crossed!

Thank you so much
Biggest tip I can give you is: Don't over-think it! Just fill out the form 80 as asked. Chances are that the form either didn't register or upload correctly (assuming you applied online), or they lost it (if you applied by mail). Sometimes they just request a form be filled out twice. I was asked for another form 40, which freaked me out at first. Biggest point of concern was, like you, I had information that I gave a "ballpark" estimate on...and was afraid it would differ on the requested form from the original form. I simply wrote up an introduction letter for the requested form 40, and explained that one of the questions may differ from the original form as the date was an estimate on both. I also added that both dates should be around the same time frame (within a week or two). If you're that worried that an answer may differ, perhaps do the same?

Also, yes, if immigration specifically requested information from you, then they are processing your application. Some people get a grant the day after uploading a requested form, while others wait a month. However, you should know that an answer is near...so best complete that form 80 soon! Best wishes

Congrats Mariella!
I applied on the 7th of Dec, hopefully mine is not far away as well. I haven't been contacted from immi at all, and now I am getting really anxious....
May I ask which office did you apply at?

Thank you so much for your response! I filled out my form as accurately as I can remember so hopefully there won't be an issue. I also added a small note saying they may differ slightly so hopefully they will understand thank you for the tip!
Now fingers crossed I hear something soon

Hello everyone .

I've been reading through these posts for the last week or so and posted a couple of questions...So, what I was thinking about today is: the way I understand it is that when you apply, the processing center that is going to process your application is shown at the footer of the application confirmation letter. Mine gives an address in ACT (I applied from Adelaide, SA). Is there anyone else whose application is being processed in ACT and does anyone have an email address from that processing center?

What does it say in the footer of your application confirmation letter? Does it give you the address of an office?

That's ok, it is more where you have applied from, for example, I applied in Vic, assuming my application doesn't get relocated, VIc office will process my application.
I can see from your profile you have location WA, I guess that's where you have applied
Some offices take longer to process than others.

Look at the grant email, open the pdf, and look at the footer. It'll give you an address of the office.
