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!
Hi Rezzie,


1. My friend in Melbourne is 19 months waiting now and they have an agent. Nothing heard, not even new police and health check. Only your agent can answer your question if it is being assessed or not. If the police check requested by your agent, no CO and vice versa.
2. It is surely a good idea to add more documents. But since you have an agent, ask the agent for that matter.
3. I have no idea but this is just how i think. DIBP would understand it, hes not a citizen. His contribution is an evidence.
4. I have no idea.

Goodluck

Cheers,

Hello, I'm a new member here but have been a reader for a long time. Yesterday the immigration sent me an email requesting AFP police check. May I know if I can get this one even if I have been living in Australia for 6 months. I am confused on this statement from the letter "if you are 16 years old or above and have lived in Australia for a total of 12
months or more in the last 10 years (these 12 months are calculated cumulatively and need
not have been consecutive) you need to obtain a 'Complete Disclosure' AFP National Police
Certificate by completing a National Police Check Application Form."

Also, I was given a timeframe of 28 days. Does this mean 28 working days? So I should exclude holidays and weekends from the count? How do you request for extension?

Thank you in advance.

Xoxo

Aj

been waiting 20 months

My partner is from China (high risk) we applied for our 820 last March. At this time it said 18 months, till processing. It is now almost 21 months. She has only recently done her 2nd medical. This is driving me nuts, and seems like there is nothing we can do to expedite the process.

Just starting my journey

I am a new member of the forum and I am so glad I found this. I am starting out on my journey through the dreaded partner visa application process. I am currently living in Australia with my Australian boyfriend on a 6 month Visitor 600 visa. We have just completed the dutiful exit and re-entry to the country after 6 months (Lovely holiday to Cambodia), with 6 months left on my current Visitor Visa. Now we are going to start the process of applying for the 801/820. I am hoping in good time.

I will apply for the first stages of the Partner visa and having read through this forum already, I am comfortable that we will not need an agent.

Any advice or comfort going forward will be a great help.

If I was you I would be hoping that they make the decision after 24 months as then you will be granted the 820 and 801 at the same time and don't need to wait another 12 months or so for the 801.

Thank you. Now, fingers are crossed! That would be so good.

I've seen someone else on this forum that was only in Oz for 7 months and was still requested to do the AFP.

If you were specifically asked to do it by the CO, then you should just do it even if it doesn't make sense.

28 days is 28 days, not working days. You should submit proof that you've applied for the check once you do. It might take longer than 28 days to get it but you should still submit proof that you've applied and are waiting on it.

Best of luck your visa comes soon after your upload!

Always liked to check the updates here whilst I was stressing about my visa and to see what was going on with everyone elses, so thought I'd come share my good news story.

Applied for 820 Partner Visa - 12th April 2017
820 Finalised/Approved - 9th Dec 2017.

Never received any kind of update or requests, but I uploaded a ton of information and documents, and did the police checks and medical two weeks after paying for the visa. Happy days!
