I'm aware that people who apply for visa 820/801 are entitled to enrol in Medicare. Does it mean that I can apply for Medicare right away or do I have to wait until my current visa expires in 2019?

Also, we applied online and I've read from different forums/threads saying differently about form 40SP. I've submitted our application using my personal immi account and I've attached a few documents about my partner's identity (passport/drivers license) but extremely confused about form 40SP. Does he have to fill in this form if we applied online?!

Hope to hear back from you guys soon. Any answer is greatly appreciated!

Thanks
While some people who apply online compete the sponsor form by hand and upload as a document, this is not the preferred method by DIBP and they are in the process of changing it so no one that applies online can even do that anymore.

Paper forms are intended for paper applications.

If applying online, your partner can either create their own immi account or log in using yours, create a new application, and choose the sponsorship for a partner visa option. Then s/he fills it out online, very similar to the applicant application.

And yes, once an 820/801 has been applied for, you are eligible to apply for Medicare.

My question is, I just paid 15 minutes ago and have not gotten a bridging visa, so how long should I expect to hear about this said bridging visa? My working holiday visa expires on December 2, 2017. I just want to make sure that comes through before then? Also, my boyfriend cannot access his 40sp application online even though I have lodged and paid. Has this happened to anyone? Any info would be great. Thanks guys!
Some people get the grant straight away, others in a few hours, others in a few days. If you paid BPAY, don't expect it to go through straight away.

Just to let you all know, in case anyone out there in similar circumstances, worrying and stressing about the waiting time for 820s to be processed (as i was until yesterday) - I just got my 820 granted, within just 7 months of submitting!
I only got the request for health check last thursday, went for the medical the following wednesday (ie two days ago), and within 24 hours, I got an email saying visa granted... So happy and relieved!
best of luck to everyone waiting

New processing times

It's absolutely ridiculous ... I thought they would never go over 24 months of processing time for the 820 visa...

​820 - Temporary visa:
75 per cent of applications processed - 20 months
90 per cent of applications processed - 25 months (!!)

Wow congrats! That must be such a relief... I applied in July so only a few months after you. I can only dream that mine will be approved that quickly.

On a positive note if it takes 25 months you would get 820 and 801 at the same time. That is not a bad thing considering the waiting time for the second stage. Therefore someone who waited 25 months would get their 801 before someone who got their 820 in say 15 months.

Sometimes we just need to try to find a positive.

Perfect example of how it works... 75% processed in 20 months and you clearly fall into that category. It's a bit annoying to see people keep saying it's a 20-25 month wait according to the website and that's just not true.

Congrats on your visa.

I appreciate that getting the 801/820 at the same time when it goes over the said 24 month period may seem a positive thing for some but in our case and others who applied onshore, it is actually not so much beneficial.
We would rather have the 820 processed pretty quickly so at least we can travel overseas freely without the need to keep applying for exit visa's (bridging visa B)
I have done it twice this year already for my wife and she is getting frustrated not being able to go back to visit her family often let alone the process and costs to do it.
At least with the 820 approved, we can go every month if we wanted to and then just wait for the 801 to be approved.

Have you heard anything from DIBP if not i suggest try contacting them just for a follow up like how i did.

I was in a similar situation as you were as i applied in the same month March 2016 waited for almost 18 months then i contacted my agent he advised that ill need to wait. However i contacted the immigration office in the 1st week of October and on the 2nd week i was granted the 820 visa.

Hope this helps
