I've just emailed the visa people again.

Three weeks since they told me I would have it within a month.

I pointed out to them that official waiting times when I applied were 9-12 months and here we are getting people from Brazil having their visas processed in 7 months (didn't say that bit!).

We have been living together since the start of January 2013... also got the 820, not the 801. We were disappointed because we wanted to apply around 6 months earlier, but decided to wait a bit longer so we would meet the criteria to go straight to the 801 .

I emailed them last week to see if we can get the 801 anyway, but no response yet.

Yeah, well at least you've emailed them. It probably got overlooked, provided you gave them enough evidence to prove it.

I just sent the WA office an email now:

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this email in the full knowledge that it may not affect the outcome or timeframe of my application for migration as a partner (subclass 820/801).

That being said, and hopefully without sounding presumptuous, I would like to inform you that:

a) My husband M******* and I feel we have uploaded all relevant documentation and evidence for consideration, and that we are decision ready. I have uploaded Form 80, Form 1221 and a National Police Certificate from Italy and the Australian Federal Police. I have also completed my mandatory health assessment, which you have received from Bupa. I have also uploaded all the evidentiary particulars at our disposal that prove that our relationship is genuine and ongoing. I have also included the birth certificates of our biological children who are both Australian citizens.

b) I am a good candidate for passage directly to the 801 Permanent Residency, as our commitment to each other is obvious, and we have been living as partners since May 2014 and have been married since January 2015. Our first child was born in October 2015 and our second in December 2016.

Of course my husband and I would be happy to provide any further evidence the DIBP deems fit, and would not object to attending an interview should the need present itself.

Thank you for considering this email.

Yours sincerely,
C******

Worth a crack, I guess. I'm not expecting anything to come of it though.

That sounds really good, MarcellusF! Hopefully that lights a fire under them to grant your 801 straight away. With them trying to clear the backlog, I'd think that email might do the trick to get them to grant yours. I know that as soon as I get our AFP checks (hopefully in the post tomorrow), I'm going to upload them, hit that submitted button AND email them. My CO gave me her number to call her...so I might even do that just to let her know that I've submitted what she asked for. Couldn't hurt, right?? Hopefully we'll all get good news soon! :fingerscrossed:

Which form is it that you have to do for a new passport? Apparently mine is arriving on Friday. Hoping uploading it will kick them up the bum!

Hi,
we have applied my wife's visa through online on 27th Feb 2017 and now she's on her bridging visa. We have uploaded most of the relevant attachments except Health check and Police check as we've seen a comments and threads saying it will be good to do those upon the request.
My question is, it's already been two months and we know we should be more patient but is it still better to wait until for them to request those files? or should we get it done and submit it? roughly what would be the time frame for them to ask us to submit those files? Has anyone else waited until they requested?

Much appreciated your kind reply in advance.

Thank you.

This is what the website says for updating your passport:

If you need to make any changes to your address or passport details you can notify us by one of the following methods:
-Online through your ImmiAccount (for some applications only).
-Complete and submit Form 929 Change of address and/or passport details (251KB PDF).
-Advise us in writing of your new address, making sure you include the following details:
-your full name as set out in the application
-your date of birth
-if the application was made outside Australia, the name of the office
where you lodged the application and one of the following:
-your client number
-the immigration file number for your current application
-the number of the receipt we issued when the application was
made.
Return the completed Form 929 or the written notice by post to a departmental office.


Hope that helps!

In my case I did the medical check 4.5 months after I applied, and I wish I had waited longer. I got my visa 11 months after the medical, so they didn't ask me to do it again, but I was stressing about it a bit... that it would expire before my grant. I actually did my police checks a couple of weeks after my application and ended up doing it again a year later because they expired. Based on my experience I would say: just wait until you hear something... unless you don't mind to do them twice if necessary.

By the time my 820 was granted my medical was 14 months old, but I wasn't asked to do it again. I waited a few more months to do the AFP check though, so that was still in date. With the long wait times there doesnt seem to be any advatage to doing these checks early, so I'd say it's up to you.
