I feel if the medical was done and a partner visa app made onshore, the CO would be more inclined to allow the medical to still count even if it has recently expired. As opposed to an offshore application where the medical expiration can actually affect the "must enter by" date.

I noticed your application date, hence why I messaged you! This site isn't too easy to sift through and find the relevant things sometimes, do you know how I can find others who applied the same time as us, and more specifically for me finding others who applied via paper for their processing times?
I agree, it's interesting to read about other people's journeys who are in the same boat, especially because most of my friends cannot relate to this situation. I DIY'ed the application as well and had been sifting through this forum and blog posts prior to submission. Unfortunately I wouldn't know how to find others that applied at the end of last year, let alone by paper.

Are all partner visa 820 applications assessed in the one processing center? Or does it change depending on where you are located in Australia?

There is more than 1 centre. First point they will go to your local office, sometimes if they are really busy they will go to another office (usually WA or QLD).

Mish, your whole application process went very smoothly. Do you think you had a really strong application or just lucky?

Hi - I read that soon Aussie partners may need to apply for sponsorship first before a partner visa can even be applied for (just like how companies currently need to be an officially approved sponsor before an employee can apply for work visa).

When will that partner sponsorship mandate start happening? This year?

It's kind of already started as since November 2016, your partner has to be eligible in terms of needing to provide a Police Certificate. With any previous convictions, they are not permitted to be a sponsor. That's the first recent change we've seen. Then yes, I've read the same that they will also have an additiona step in the entire process which is having the Sponsor approved first. I also read that they will introduce a second payment for PR and it will not be included in the initial application cost which is currently $7000 AUD

Okay, thanks. I knew about those, so that's okay. The second payment for PR - hopefully it's after we apply in October. The police certificate will be easy with a clear background check, but I just wanted to make sure that the Aussie didn't need to apply a month or 2 before the foreign partner could launch their partner visa application for the bridging visa. As long as it can be done at the same time with the 1 submission rather than waiting around for the Aussie to be sponsor approved, we're okay :-)

You'll know about any changes are when you go to complete the application, it will be different to before. You will also be able to read it on the DIBP website, they update instantly.

If you're processing the application yourself, highly recommend reading other people's blogs online. Simply googling "820 Partner VISA blog" brings up lots of good, high detailed and informative ones! IE - Applying For An Australian Partner Visa - Girl Tweets World and We Survived Part One Of The 820/801 Australian Partner Visa | Maps And Mandalas and How to apply for defacto partner Visa 820 to Australia

Thank you
If you dont hear anything by the time you get to 24months (2years) since the date of application then you can requested to be processed as a 801 permanent rather then a 820 temporary.

It is unlikely but you may end up in that position just like we have
