I have a very minor update. I decided to send an email and ask for an estimate when my application is likely to be processed, as I'm planning to go overseas in May. They responded within a couple of hours, informing me that "your application may be allocated to a case officer very soon for active assessment. Therefore, you are encouraged to upload the relevant documents to your file including completing health and character checks ( if not already done) in order to facilitate quick finalisation at the time of active assessment". So basically, it doesn't say very much .... "may" be allocated "very soon".. what does that mean?

Also I asked what happens if I get the visa while I'm overseas, and they responded with "You MUST be onshore ( in Australia) when your Partner application is finalised ( unless it is unfavourable and the requirements are NOT met)."

This is a bit confusing, because earlier they told me that if I were to be overseas when they want to finalise my visa, they would let me know and I would have some time to come back to Aus. Does anyone have experience with this? I AM going overseas.... can I let them know NOT to grant it in the period I'm away?

We are now just over 9 months waiting and haven't heard a word from immi.

A question for those more knowledgeable or who have been in the same situation:

Since submitting the application, we are now expecting a baby and it looks like it will probably arrive before the application has been processed. Aside from informing immi of the pregnancy as further evidence of our relationship, will there be any formal requirement to inform immi (ie. notification of change in circumstances or correcting any answers in the application form)?

I'm guessing not, as the baby will be an Australian citizen so doesn't need to be added as a dependent or anything, but wanted to double check as its been a very long time now since I went through all the information with a fine tooth comb, and a baby wasn't really on the cards at the time so I didn't think much on the subject.


Hi

We have exactly the same situation.
We found out my partner was pregnant after applied. What I did was just upload some scan photos and put in a PDF document informing some things like due date and etc.
I got the visa approved and bubs still in her belly ;) due in june.
Im sure it didn't change anything about our application it was just another evidence of our commitment and plans for the future.

Ok ya'll. I am scheduling my medicals for myself and my sons. On the Referral Letter, it says Client visa details: BS 801 Spouse (Permanent). However, I applied for the 820 visa at this stage. So, when making the medical appointment, what do I choose for the visa subclass: 801 or 820? The letter says 801 but my visa application is 820.

Very confusing. I don't want to put the wrong thing and mess it up. Can someone help?

Thanks!

I asked the same question on this forum. The application confirmation letter should have an email address in the footer of the letter. But sometimes it doesn't (it didn't have one in my letter, only a physical address and a post box). I used the email address of the Perth office as I suspect it may be processed there (but this was a guess): [email protected]

Do you know where your application is processed?

I think because the end result of applying for 820 is that you eventually get 801, this is correct. I feel like I asked the same question. You don't redo the medical for 801

Yeah there is no email address in the acknowledgement letter or brigding visa letter only physical addresses. I think it should be victoria as applicant"s physical address is in Victoria itself.

Hi guys,

So, just received my grant letter for 820 visa.
Country of origin: Russia
Applied 24/12/15 on paper, Perth from student visa
Request for medicals, form 80 and fresh Australian police check 20/03/17
Supplied 03/04/17
Grant 05/04/17

Funny thing, only ever needed Aussie police checks, never Russian, been in Aus since 15. Now to the loooong wait for 801 :(
Good luck everyone, hope you get your visas soon!

The thing is AFP takes over 2 weeks to be done and sent to me so I can't upload it asap. I uploaded form 80 alr so just the AFP and Medical now.

Hope I can get them uploaded soon.

I had all my documents submitted so as medicals and form 80 on the first day, i had my country police checks i just waited for them to request the AFP CHECKS from me, so when the sent me that generated email, i had a strong feeling that i might get my grant though some members here had been negative telling me it might take months and months hehe... i waited 3 weeks before i even applied for my AFP Checks as i and my husband had been moving around with his job. Anyway, when i applied for it it took me 9 days before it arrived home. That Monday immigration called me asking for it and it did arrived home that afternoon, and sent it thru email. about 3 and half days i received my grant!

As soon as you get your Afp, pls provide it to them immediately and you might get your grant ASAP. I wish you luck! Cheers!

My husband and my kids are aus and we aRe making the move to aus in august. I have had my applkcation in works for awhile just different things have happened and money not being on our side so couldnt launch earlier. I was going to do it offshore but worried they may not let me enter on a visior visa plus i dong get work rigts so now considering to wait until we arrive to lodge it.so i would have to apply for a regular visitor visa correct?


I am from USA and came here on an ETA Visa, after the first 3 months, we went to Bali to satisfy the leaving the country every 3 months thing. As I was re-entering, the Immigration person told me I am obviously here to be with my partner and I should apply for a tourist visa because each 3 months I leave it will be harder and harder to get back in if at all. I said well thats the only visa I was allowed to get at the time. So I applied for the Visitor Visa and shot for 12 months, because they will give you however long they think you should be allowed to be here anyways, so I went for the big guns. I figured I'd only get 6 months, since I had just finished my 5th month here anyways. They granted me the full year ( I am guessing cause my partner can financially support me and im from low risk country)

This was long enough for me to satisfy the 12 months living together, and I was actually honest in my application for visitor that I planned on applying for the partner visa before that one was up but I wanted to not be seperate from my partner and he can care for me and he has a house and everything here, so it makes more sense for us to be in Australia. They granted it next morning, no questions asked. So I applied for the partner visa after a total of 12 months being here. :) Lots say dont say that you are living in Australia on a visitor visa but I was honest with them, because even if they had told me no, we'd of just went to the USA until.

Good Stuff,

Personally honesty is the best policy, my wife (g/f) back then were in a similar situation but the Visa was only a 3 month no further stay (High Risk Country). Anyway when she left Philippines and arrived in Sydney, both immigration staff from respective countries, said why not just get the PMV 300 Visa straight away. Well we both had the same answer which was my wife had never been to another country so it was more like a trial to see how well we live together and how she would adapt to Australia way of life and away from her family. Since them days we have been through the PMV300, married, onto 820 Visa and a few months away for 801 Visa. It is a bit of a long haul but worth it :)
