Have been following this thread for a while - we applied for my temporary 820 on the 7th of November! We have been together for 7 years (since I was 16) and lived together for two.

I'm currently on a working holiday visa, and have already been granted my bridging visa A for when the WHV expires. On my WHV i can only be employed by someone for 6 months, but I will have full rights on the BVA, does anyone know if this means I can start a new job 5/6 months before my BVA comes into affect, and then I can let it roll over and continue the employment? (if this makes sense).

Only other thing i'm curious about is this I saw on the AU GOV website;


''Long term relationship

If, at the time you apply, you have been in a long term relationship with your partner, your permanent Partner visa (subclass 801) visa may be granted immediately after the temporary Partner visa (subclass 820) visa.''

So, if I get granted my 801, will I automatically get my 820, due to the length of our relationship? Do I have to state this or will they figure it out themselves?

Thanks so much

Megan

If you provided de facto evidence for the three years prior to applying, the CO may decide to grant you the 801 immediately after the 820 allowing you to skip the two year waiting period for the 801. You still wait the normal 820 wait time though. You can mention it in your application that you'd like to be considered for it but there's never a guarantee as it's up to the discretion of the case officer.

Hi Jim, did you apply by online/paper?

Hi everyone,

I applied for my Bridging Visa B. I noted when I recieved it, the correspondence I noted on the bottom of the email states a position number.

Every time I have heard from Immigration, the position number has changed.

Does anyone know whether this relates to the position you are in the queue? Or is it a reference number for the representative contacting you?

Each DIBP employee has a position number.

Hi I notice in your timeline you haven't done your medical yet. It will be a good idea to get it done now. :D Good luck.

Hello all,

New to the forum, but with some questions - our agent is hopeless at giving responses :/
We applied Jan 2017 for the 820. My partner is Brazilian. Since the application we had a request for me to provide sponsor police check in October, and nothing more. My questions are:
1) Is there any meaning to the request - i.e. do we have a CO, or being assessed?
2) Is it possible to add documents to the application after? We are planning our wedding so have heaps of new evidence :)
3) We also just bought our house, but were advised to put it solely in my name as he's not a citizen. However, he's still contributing equally to the cost of it. Is anyone else in this boat? I'm a bit concerned as to how this could be interpreted by DIBP, but we can't be the only ones. We had a dual lease agreement prior to this.
4) Is it possible to get an extension to the BVB? His expires April 25 and our honeymoon has us overseas until May 1...

Thanks!

Sorry, I can only really help you with the first two questions

1) If immigration didn't give you a timeline to upload your police check (ie within 28 days) then the request may have been a generic e-mail sent out to all 820 applicants who applied around the time you did. However, I would recommend that your partner get his police check done as soon as he can. If it's an Aussie police check, he'll only have to wait 2 weeks for the results. However, if an overseas police check is required he may have to wait for a month+. You don't want to be caught out if immigration decides to process your visa without the police check OR formally requests the police check be uploaded within a short time period.
2) Yes, many people upload new evidence as their application is being processed.

when i logged in to my immi account today it says my sponsor is approved, i am keeping my fingers crossed that it might mean that things are speeding up a bit for us 820 onshore applicants :)

Hi, May i know what proof you attached on your visa 820?.We are gathering evidence now to prove our relationship is genuine because we will lodge our soon as well. I hope everything goes will. Thanks xx
