I think it's costed too much this year, close to $5000 plus more if you have a Agent. Perhaps there have been a drop in applications thus extra spaces this year

No, I really doubt it will have gone down, cost or not. People want to be with their loved ones and a few hundred to a thousand dollars is probably not enough to make a significant difference in application rates (though it will of course make a significant difference to those struggling to afford it!). They are ending certain types of family visas this year and giving the extra spaces to partner migration, so there will be more spaces next fiscal year.

Hi guys,

Soooo today we finally heard from immi, and we have a case officer. After 14 months..... i called them last week to check in.

But she has asked for things we already submitted...maybe she has not looked through our file properly?

And she asked for proof of relationship and gave us the same wording included in the booklet...she has not specified what we need to submit?!

I am feeling disappointed and confused...all this waiting and only this? I don't know what else we can give as proof ...new photos, new lease, but this would only be doubling up what we already gave.

Any tips/advice/thought?

Thanks

Probably just boilerplate language they send to all people whose cases they are newly assessing. I would send an email that says something like "I believe we've already submitted everything you're asking for - can you clarify if you are actually missing all these items or if you have everything you need?" Something along those lines.

Maybe you can send in some new evidence, for example latest bank statements, renewed lease, recent holidays etc.

I'm thinking maybe the CO just want to check whether you are still in the same relationship after such a long time waiting. Just me guessing, it could be just as CG said, a cut and paste standard email.

I remember reading somewhere that when a PMV holder moves to a 309, it opens up a PMV spot (removing the double dipping). And similar happens with other types of visas that move from one stage to another. I don't recall all the examples given, but I would guess that when I moved from a 457 visa to a 186, it would have opened up a 457 spot.

Hi All,

I'm a long time lurker of these forums and they were extremely helpful in putting my visa application together.

I just wanted to let you know that after a little over 5 months of waiting I was granted my 820 visa today.

I am a UK citizen and my partner is Australian. We met in Canada in 2011 and had lived together for 16 months in Canada and Australia before submitting our 820 application to Perth on December 20th. We submitted a decision ready paper application that amounted to 370 pages, I included form 80, police checks and my medical receipt.

It may be entirely unrelated but I emailed immigration yesterday to ask them for advice regarding a potential overseas trip we are planning for September and they came back to me today with a decision on my visa.

Needless to say we are completely over the moon. Best of luck to everyone that is waiting in here.
