Can you give us your full timeline/circumstances - the above answer is contradictory to my question.

What visa did you arrive in Australia on.
How did you come to be in a position of not holding a substansitive visa when you applied for your 820 visa.

I first came on a student visa in 2014 with the standard limited work restriction (20h).

Applied for a temp skilled sponsor 457 in Sept 2015, but my sponsor was refused so we subsequently filed an appeal with the AAT in Feb 2016. I was issued w a BVA during this period but had an emergency trip home in 2016, so applied for BVB which is due to expire in March 2017.
Whilst waiting on an outcome from AAT, my partner of 2+ years accepted a job interstate (as well as I hated my sponsoring job), so we applied for de facto 820/801 in early Feb 2017.
I never heard back from the AAT, until I withdrew my application in order to apply 820. So this is how I never had a substantive visa.

I have now been issued a BVC with no work condition. Filed a 1005, financial hardship yesterday to get the condition lifted.
Does anyone know how long the gov use to process a 1005 these days?

No case officer, you will not get allocate one until they are ready to finalise your application. Different departments within the state department process different parts of the application, once everything is done, then they will hand over to the "case officer". They do do a early check to return invalid application (hopefully for people that waiting for a while means our application is valid, just a matter of time).

They also advise me to email the Victoria team to request an update, as it is outside the processing standard time (was 12-15month).

I have sent an email, will come back and update once I receive any information.

P.s. we have to redo our police check (Australia & overseas), as we have uploaded upfront.
Hey Cherrygn,

any news regarding the email you've sent?

Thank you, Mania.
I called immi this morning to try to get a faster processing time, as I have a job offer that is waiting on my response. They couldn't guarantee anything, but will try to have a look at it today. *crossing fingers*

Thank you so much.

I ended up calling them this morning at 8.30am, explained that I had been offered a job, but couldn't accept until I got results on the 1005. The immigration clerk was very helpful and said they would try (TRY!) to look at it today.
At 12 noon I got grant for lifting the working condition

Wink waiting

Hi,

I have been reading this forum for a while now.
I just want to share my timeline with you guys.

Lodged 820/801: 29/2/2016 together with AFP check online, Sydney.
Medicals: Submitted on August 2016.

Up until now still waiting for further orders.
Same as most of us here, I haven't received any emails from Immi since except of course the generic email we receive upon submitting the application.

More waiting and hopefully soon grants will come to us all.

Glad you got your BVC with work rights sorted and approved. I had to do the same. It took about 2 weeks to get it done.

A heads up though...you will need to meet Schedule 3 criteria or request a waiver of Schedule 3, since you did not hold a substantive visa when you applied for the 820. I too, had to meet the requirements. If possible, I suggest you talk a MARA agent asap, so that you are prepared when you get the request for the Schedule 3 requirements. It's not an easy thing to meet.
