All it does it waive the 12 months living together requirement. You still need to have enough evidence to show that you are in a genuine and continuing relationship.

Hi everyone,

I've been silently keeping an eye on this forum and thought I'd post an update for everyone still waiting here. I got my visa granted yesterday after slightly over 13 months.

My partner and I front-loaded everything in August 2016 (medical, police checks etc.) in the hope that it would all be processed before these documents expire and we were lucky because it was! I received a request for more information on the 7th of September, I uploaded my Australian Police check on the 12th of September and got my visa granted on the 3rd of October (3 weeks later).

I'm from France, my partner and I submitted a very thorough application, named all the files in a detailed manner and kept uploading evidence in the last few months. I'm wishing everyone good luck with the application process, it is stressful but definitely worth it!

Hi guys, please note that the processing times has been extended to 22 months for the 820 onshore, which is insane, disrespectful and inconsiderate. We all paid 8000+ for this visa. I have written to the attorney general of Australia and my visa will be processed faster due to my complaint against the department of immigration, so guys make sure to complaint complaint complaint so there is a few voices out there so this waiting times can be changed, they are currently a joke. You can also contact your local MP so they can pass the message to parliament for you.

Actually, it's 19 months for 75% of applicants, and 22 months for 90%.

Not saying that's good, but worth being accurate all the same

True, but Immigration is abusing this processing times and giving an answer right one day before 22 months, this is why my complaint was accepted by the attorney general. I do not give any credit to the department of immigration.

75% of applications get an answer in under 19 months. Some in under 1 year. It depends on many factors.
15% are done between 19 months and 22 months.
Another 10% take over 22 months.

Yep. We got ours plus 801 in 11 months. So needless to say I'm not pissed off at the immi department anymore, haha.

I'm sure it's dependent on the individual cases too, and not just because there are too many applications for too few bureaucrats to process.

I understand the frustration, don't get me wrong. I strongly suggest being proactive and emailing the processing office regularly to inform them of developments (everything uploaded, absences from Australia etc.) even though you may have already uploaded that info to your immi account. I think it helps.

But that could just be me retrospectively trying to apply logic to a process that had me baffled for nearly a year of my life. Haha!

In all honesty it doesn't really matter about the processing times for the 820 because unless you are in a long term relationship you still need to wait for the 801 anyway.

Even though the processing times are long we still need to remember some positives which is that Australia does not require the sponsor to earn a minimum amount to sponsor their partner .... imagine if this was the case and you didn't earn enough? Therefore we are lucky that we can all sponsor our partners.

You can apply for Medicare now. With a drivers license you need to check the requirement for the state you live in as some have that you need to have lived here for 6 months.
