So it's been longer than two years for you? That's absolutely appalling!
Maybe you should get into contact with the Lebanese Security Agency? Or IGIS?

Do you have any criminal history? Because I've heard of a few people from Lebanon whose checks are taking a while, but that's because they have criminal histories which need to be thoroughly investigated.

Don't forget they also investigate your family's history, whoever you've put on your Form 80, they need to research. Still no excuse for taking over two years!

Hello CG,
Do I need to submit the Form 1022 -Notification of Changes in circumstances (Section 104 of the Migration Act 1958),please?

I am a PMV visa holder approved on Dec. 23, 2013, I got married on Feb. 15, 2014. As soon as I got my marriage certificate from the Registry of Marriages in Sydney, I went to Philippine Consulate and changed my passport's name. As soon as I received my renewed passport with the new name in June 2, 2014(Monday) , I went to Aus. Immigration Office in Sydney and submitted a copy of my old passport , copy of my new passport and a copy my marriage contract, these are the documents they asked when I told them to report the changes in detail of my passport. So, definitely the name in my passport when it was approved is not the same family name that I used in my application of visa 820/801, that I lodged yesterday(June 03, 2014), by post here in Parramatta addressed to Aus Immigration in Sydney as provided for by Aus Immi in Parramatta.

Thank you for your help.

Hello all the experts here,

I am wondering if there is any ENGLISH requirement for partnership visa 820?
I heard some of my friends saying the minimum score for IELTS is 4.5, but some of them saying there is no requirement for english, so I'm confused.

Could someone please clarify for me?

Also, do i need to prove my education when applying for partnership visa 820?

Stop asking the same question! We have answered you as well as Mark and told you there is no English requirements.

The only requirement for a partner visa is your relationship.

Asking it over and over again is not going to get you a different answer. There is NO English requirement for a partner visa. I'm sorry your friends seem to be confused about this, but if they tell you there IS such a requirement, they're wrong. It's possible they're talking about requirements for a spouse/ de facto partner on a SKILLED migrant visa. There ARE requirements for those. There are NONE for a partner visa.

Happy dance time!

I'm literally in shock right now!

My wife just got sent her 820 visa grant e-mail!

Totally out of the blue ... was braced for 13 months or more wait as she is "high risk" (i.e.. China)

Was a "quickie" relationship thing which had me slightly worried as didn't have a "stack" of evidence but with 5 888's from my family and knowing that we were indeed a genuine couple thought we should get the ok

Met her Feb 2013
Moved in together Mar 2013
Engaged July 2013
Setup Joint Bank Account July 2013
Married Oct 22 2013
Lodged 820 Application November 6 2013
Granted June 4 2014

Lodged at Melbourne office on paper, did it all ourselves, no contact at all from IMMI, no case officer contact, no interview, no nothing, just email straight out of the blue this morning

Still shaking my head

Best wishes to everybody else waiting

she can celebrate by going to work tonight

i'm still in shock all those hours of filling out forms & internet research all worthwhile ... have come to the definitive conclusion now there is no logic in processing times at all

Few weeks ago we updated her application with forms 1022/929 to update her name (to her new English first & surname) & new passport. Maybe that got them to look into our application and got a boost. Just theorising now ...

Anyway life is good!

Congrats & good luck!

Hi Maxpower - Such wonderful news. Great to know that there is action in the partner processing centre. Enjoy your life together in Australia and best wishes for the next stage 801, PR and then maybe citizenship. You have made me smile on this cold day in Sydney. Cheers...
