Well the request from SAU for my overseas and AFP check was in March. I had issues getting the overseas one because of being here in Oz. So there was a delay and I had to finally go overseas in May to get everything sorted. Did my wife's overseas police check while we were there.
Late June we received an email requesting the AFP police check and health assessment for my wife. That's been completed and submitted early July along with other documents they requested such as Form 80, history of relationship etc.
A CO hasn't been assigned. It's been 8 months since we applied so I'm not sure where we stand. Wife was granted 3 months BVB which expires in a week and we need to go overseas again to sort out personal things and visit her family. So what do you think? Seems a bit unfair to have to apply for another BVB again when having the TR wold make things less stressful.
That's great that you had your answer 2 days after supplying your documents. Your circumstance must have been different, you were probably well into the waiting queue.

Hi Hotdog, mate it is still luck of the draw but you are deep into that now, so hang in there mate - it is just a process with planning levels that dictate when visas can be issued.

I am pretty sure your application is fine - you worked hard on that.

Actually, I fully believe my grant came so fast because I called them to let them know that I'd uploaded it all. That being said, my case was different in that I had to meet Schedule 3 requirements. Therefore, they looked at my application a lot sooner than most. It couldn't hurt for you to give them a call to let them know everything has been submitted and that you may have to take another overseas trip. Might move them along. If they asked for all of that, it means they are planning to approve. So, give them a ring and see what happens. Could end up getting your approval right after. Either way, at least they are looking at everything. :) Best of luck! Hope you get that grant soon.

I as the sponsor was requested to provide an overseas and Australian police check back a few months ago. Then a couple of months ago my wife was requested to provide an overseas and Australian police check as well as her medical. Does this mean that DIBP are close to granting the 820? As these things are valid 1 year is it likely they would request these documents back then and then wait close to a year to grant the 820? We applied for the onshore, online in December 2016. We have already submitted just about everything.

I applied in December 2016 also, but in VIC via paper application. In January 2017 they requested my Aussie partners Police documents. But we have not heard from them since.

I haven't submitted the online application yet. I see the 47sp "Submit" button, but haven't pressed it. I don't want to press it, because we want to wait another month for our de facto anniversary. We haven't paid yet.

When will we pay? After the submit button or do we have to launch the 40sp? When we pay, does the bridging visa get launched? And only after we pay is when the uploading process happens?

Yeah I sent an email to DIBP stating all the specifics, so far just the generic email with all the usual info and answers to general questions. It states:
Due to large volumes of enquiries, we will not respond to your email if your query is answered by the information below.
I will call them anyhow and see what response I get.

When you pay, you will automatically receive a receipt for payment and shortly after confirmation of your partner's bridging visa a. Obviously, pressing submit will take you to the payment page.

You can upload more evidence as soon as you've paid and can continue doing so for the duration of your wait (up to a limit or 60 documents) which could be many many months

Thanks :-) So the applicant submits the 47sp, submits/pays, then the 40sp gets done by the sponsor after the payment/bridging visa? Again, we don't apply until October, but want to understand due to timing of our current visa expiring vs the bridge visa going into effect :-)

Correct. The sponsor can do the application after payment. Bridging visa depends on when payment is processed so if you do BPAY, expect for it to take several days, especially over a weekend. Credit card is instant.
