Morning all:

Just thought I would pass on that a customer service representative at DIBP told me yesterday that because I have been living with my wife for 6 years, and together for 10 - I the processing time for the 801 visa could be waived. When I questioned her about this - she claimed that I still had to wait for two years after grant of the 820 visa, but the time that was waived would be the 15-20 months processing time after this initial two years.

I understand that this information is completely incorrect. It is my understanding that if you surpass the eligible de facto time frame - the two year on a temporary visa could be waived. Could someone please confirm this?


Second, I came to Australia nearly a decade ago - first on a student visa, and then on a 457 (recently expired). When applying for the student visa (offshore), I had to undergo the medicals and police check. I have not left Australia in this time. Notably, I did not need to undergo any further medicals/police checks for the 457 - but as I understand, I need to have to do more medicals and police checks now (is the UK police check really necessary seeing as I haven't been back since my original student visa?)

Thanks for your comments!

You'll still have to wait the normal wait period when you apply for the 820. Once the 820 is granted, the 801 should be simultaneous.

Applied for my wife's BVB a week before planned departure. Received the very day we applied, so quick. We attached a cover letter stating the urgency as I had to arrange and International Police Check as a sponsor.
The inittial BVB was only for 3 weeks multiple trips. I replied stating disappointment and the requirement for a longer period and they replied immediately granting 3 months. Very inmpressed.

Thanks for your comments!
When you put in your original application (stage one, usually 820) you should say that you believe to be eligible for the 801 as you've been living together for more than three years (at the time of the application). You should get the 801 at the same time as the 820. So yes, if that is what the representative told you, that's wrong. You still have the wait time for the 820 (15-20 months or something), but at least you don't have to provide evidence twice (two years apart). Does that make sense?

(In my case they 'forgot' to consider my application for 801, and I had to remind them and follow it up.... 5 weeks later (after I got the 820) they looked at it again and agreed I should have been granted the 801 straight away and gave it to me so it's worth following up if you don't get it!)

When uploading Forms, please ensure all pages are consolidated in one PDF file.

Further ImmiAccount assistance, including checking the progress of your application, Technical Support and Frequently Asked Questions can be found at: ImmiAccount


Frequently Asked Questions And Answers etc. etc.

So, not entirely sure whether this means they're close to assigning it to a CO, or whether it's an automatic thing.

Interestingly, this email came from the Queensland Temp. Visa office, while last time we got correspondence from the Perth office.

I got no idea.

I replied to this email by reiterating that we've uploaded everything in that list, and also reiterated that we are currently in Europe and that it would be awesome if they could let us know roughly when they're close to a decision so we can be back in time.

More than that I don't think I can do much else.

Seems very quiet. We are two weeks off the 12 month mark and haven't heard a thing from immi, have given up on the idea of being part of the end of financial year rush of grants that seemed to be going on earlier.

yup I agree, I have given up on the idea too. Oh well....only problem I have with it is I hope my medical doesn't expire now since I rushed to get it done in hopes of being processed by the end of financial year.

That sounds like one of the emails you receive when they are getting ready to process the application. Hopefully it's good news!! Especially with you emailing them back that you've submitted it all and it's decision ready. I'd try to call them. Couldn't hurt.
