This was about 10 months ago too, so things may have changed as far as wait times are concerned. However, be on the look out for a grant in the near future...just don't get your hopes down if it doesn't come tomorrow or next week
Thanks for the info, and for the glimmer of hope!

Hi Alice, I applied one day earlier than you on 6 February 2017, but I haven't heard anyone back yet, just wondering after being requested for medical and form 80 in June, have you been followed up? Have you got the grant already? I am just curious and stressed as it has been more than 7 months already and no contact whatsoever, many thanks.

Thank you for your info. However, I have recently submitted my new born baby's birth certificate and in reply I was encouraged to do my foreign police certificate and health check up. I am not sure if I should go ahead and act on it since its not a reply from actual case officer.

Besides, I am also concerned about the medicare card which I was issued since I got granted for BV of 820. and it is valid for 12 months. therefore, if they take 18-21 months to make decision then whats gonna happen to medicare after running of its date?

Here I have started processing for my country police certificate which I am not sure if that is too early to apply, Also I have done my medical check up before I launched my application for 820. I am not sure now which medical check up they are asking me to go for.

So if you have any idea on this please let me know.

Much appreciated.

I am moving this post from another thread:
It's now 17 months since we submitted our partner visa application online ( 5th April 2016). Since then I have not received a single contact/notice from the immigration department. I am getting worried and cannot understand how much time they need until they contact us and say something. In the website they mentioned 75% of the application proceed within 18 and 19 months of their lodgement! 90% within 21 to 24 months. I hear many people have applied after me have already received their granted visa. It means that the case officer have been in contact with them asking them to do their medical test or other supporting document much more earlier than the expected processing periods, while I still have not heard anything back from these people! Shouldn't I be worry now? I have lots of decisions to make at the time and all are depended to this visa and this waiting time without hearing any feedback is driving me crazy! Isn't it odd that they haven't contacted me yet to say or ask something?! Any help or advice from you guys?!

Unfortunately, more and more people are applying onshore which is bound to drive up processing times. There's really nothing you can do until you're outside of the current global processing times. After that you can lodge a complaint.

This has been our situation as well. We haven't been waiting quite as long as you - 4 days shy of 16 months for us - but the wait has been quite excruciating for my partner and also stressful for me. It's partly impacted by the fact that we are shelling out 7-8k / trimester to maintain my partner's student visa while we wait for the partner visa to be processed. We recently noticed (via the Immi portal) that I have been approved as a sponsor, so that is a positive. I think we will try emailing again to enquire about that status change and see if we can wrangle a bit more information, though not too hopeful about that!

I also was in Australia by student visa, my partner (my sponsor) has Australian citizenship. However, I don't understand what you mean by being approved as sponsor. I did not know that we should get approval for sponsorship. We applied online and the current status of my sponsor's application is submitted. Should we wait until my partner's sponsorship is approved?!

When I applied for partner visa, my student visa still was in effect. I decided to not extend my student visa, while still I had right to continue my study ( which I did). So after my student visa expired, my visa switched to bridging visa automatically, and now I have bridging visa.

Yeah my partner's student visa expires in about 9 months ... so we're stuck dealing with it until either then, or until 820 is approved.

Thanks for sharing your information. We have not been yet contacted to have a medical check. As such, I don't think so that a case officer has been specified to our case yet!

I am going to give them a call to check if there is an issue there!

We jumped the gun on that and got the health check done before any request was made. Basically our application has been ready for processing since we lodged it.
