Unforutnately, I come from a low-risk country, with a fully complete application and am now at 14 months, which would have been exciting 14 months ago when the processing times were 15-17 months. I did my health exam in May this year so I am hoping I do not have to redo that now that the processing times are so long. You would think my application would be one that is processed quicker, but just goes to show, you NEVER know. :) Its stressful, not knowing your future, or able to purchase things, because you may have to move outta the country within 28 days :/

So once we receive the 820 grant we wait another 2 years for them to re-assess us for 801?

Thanks!

It generally is faster. Once upon a time it could take days or weeks, now it seems like months but that's still faster than straight 820s for the most part. Sometimes I feel like WA has the faster processing times for 820 from PMV.

The 820 application was also an 801 application and eligibility for the 801 is two years from that 820/801 application date. Don't forget it in a couple years!

I wish it was still those times! I remember reading it wouldn't take so long from PMV before we started out PMV application. We still haven't been assigned an case officer either. My partner is on her BVB now.

Less than 6 Months 820 APPROVED!

We didn't expect to get approved this fast. I am so lucky. I checked my mail and immi account every single day. Just like everyone here.

And today we received the Grant. We got 2 correspondence for police check and medical and that was it. Submitted final documents 2 weeks ago.

I wish everyone here all the best. As long as you are in a genuine relationship. You should be okay. Yeayyy

1. We only lived together for 6 months when we applied - but we registered our rship

2. We dont have joint utilities. ( Saved my receipt of buying car together just in case they ask for more info, but they didnt)

3. We didnt have our names in our will nor super

4. We did it ourselves!

In my opinion. Its how you present your evidence.. And thank you so much to everyone here!!

Im so happy

Did you apply overseas from Malaysia? I know that "You must be in Australia when you lodge your application and when a decision is made on the temporary Partner visa (subclass 820)." but in other posts you state that your application is processed by the Australia High Commision in KL.... Just curious as my partner is from Malaysia

Yes. I applied onshore. When i first received an email, I noticed that the processing office is in KL. there are 2 other members from Malaysia confirmed it. We received the email around the same time.

I called the general line in kl and they said application by Malaysian will be processed im KL but decision will be by the Aus. (This is what he mentioned).

How long have u been waiting for?

Thanks and congratulations. We have been waiting for approximately 6.5 months so not that long yet. It's great to see that there are people who got their 820 grant within 6-7 months instead of the 20-25 months.
