One jumped in the queue? How? At the back of my mind, something tells mee that the lenght of relatioship somehow fast track the processing time. How? This is just my technical opinion and thoughts, if they set the system that detects lenght of relationship, then "jump/priority" the application.In online application, there are several questions that gives the system the length of relatioship. I always have a wild imagination with how the system works, especially that they keep changing the processing time and because of family visa scam. The system now can detect who are just got in relationship, how long they have been together and/or married. If the system detects that they just got married and been in a relationship in a month or two, then "jump to last queue" and wait there for two years. LOL. Again, these are just my thoughts. ;)

Like I keep saying to myself, I don't worry much of the long process as long as I will get my grant and they will catch more visa scam.

On our application we put our engagement date as the day we "excluded all others" or whatever the wording is as we didn't live together before we were engaged. Got engaged in May 2014, first lived together at my parents' house (UK) in November 2014 and got our own place in Melbourne in March 2015.

We thought about applying for de facto in November 2015 but as we were only at my parents' house it was hard to prove and waiting two months for a marriage certificate seemed sensible.

Wow it's nice to have your own place :). We chose the day we decided to make the relationship work (despite the distance) as the day we 'excluded all others'. We met at the start of 2011 in Australia but I spent the end of 2011 and most of 2012 back in Europe to finish my Masters degree, so we were long distance. After graduation I moved back to Australia and we've been living together ever since. Because my work visa expires this year we figured it was time to apply for a permanent visa. We are not married though... we figured it shouldn't make a difference. We're currently also living with his parents while we're building a house.

Hi everyone

I recently logged into VEVO to check my partner's visa details but every time I try to login in it says- "cannot confirm visa, check the information again and try again". The passport number, country of origin and DOB is correct. And I put the TRN number which is on his bridging visa grant email. Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone know how I can access VEVO ?

THANK YOU
Ruchika

Length of relationship does jump the queue...a long enough relationship will jump straight to 801 bypassing people that technically have been in a longer relationship ;) not what you guys really meant but it is the only time length of relationship applies. There is no evident direct correlation to length of relationship v time of grant.

Kind of sucks for the 801 queue to be honest.

Applicant A - relationship begins - Jan 2012
Applicant B - relationship begins - Jan 2012

Applicant A - applies Jan 2015
Applicant B - applies July 2014

Applicant A - 3 year and 1 day relationship at time of application.
Applicant B - 2 year and 183 days relationship at time of application.

Applicant A - granted 801 after 18 month wait. Total relationship length 4 years 184 days.
Applicant B - granted 820 after 18 month wait, 6 month wait for eigabiity, granted 801 after a further 18 months. Total relationship 6 years in the relationship.

Queue jumped over a year and a half of waiting by waiting an additional 6 months prior to applying.

Have you checked that visa under VEVO before with no issues?

In my experience, it has meant either the bridging visa hasn't taken effect yet because the current visa has yet to expire, or another visa has been granted and it might take a day or two for you to be notified. I suppose it could also mean that visa is no longer active due to denial or beach of visa conditions, of which you'll also be notified.

Edit: Also sometimes VEVO is just down.

Today marks two weeks since I was asked for form 80. It's 10 days since I submitted it (submitted on the Thursday after requested on Monday). My husband's sponsorship has said "Approved" for most of that time.

Surely I must be getting my visa soon!!

Thanks for this Mania. When we realised we had to go through the partner visa pathway for me to get PR (as it was no longer possible through my work), we were already living together for almost three years. So we did decide to wait with applying until we were living together for over 3 years (and had evidence of this... e.g. letters to same address and joint bank account >3 years old). I hope they realise this and grant my 801 straight away :)

They should if you've proved you've been living together for that long. And if they don't, you should point out to them that you've been together that long.
