Health examination
 
Hi Guys,

So after deciding to lodge our police checks and book my health exam myself after hearing nothing for 8 months, spookily the next day my migration agents forwards an email from Immigration requesting the following:


AFP Police checks for both you and Luke.
UK Police Checks for you.
Current colour passport photos for you and Luke


You are required to complete medicals. They have provided a new Medical Referral (attached) but the HAP ID is the same (see attached) so your current booking will work.
We have until 1st Feb to complete these but the sooner the better.

The email came from the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, so they must be finally getting some help in procesisng our applications. Wanted to share the good news as it may give you hope if you are still waiitng :)

Applied for 820: 3rd May 2017 (British)
Immi requested Medical & Police checks: 4th Jan 2018

Just received my first New Year's surprise~~
My 820 Visa was granted yesterday after 10.5 months waiting~!!

Application submitted on 22nd Feb 2017
AFP & Medical check on 12th Dec 2017

During the 10.5 months, no emails requiring for further info. We just kept uploading the evidence that we think useful.

Just want to update my status here.
I received the visa granted email last Friday after 11.5 months.
I saw a lot of people getting their visa granted lately. Big congrats! The department is trying to speed up the process I guess. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

Just thought I'd add my status to this forum. Applied in Melbourne about 6 months ago, not heard anything yet. Mine should be a relatively straight forward case so hopefully it won't be 20 months!

From: United Kingdom, Applied: 18 Jul 2017, Visa Sub: 820 Partner Temporary Onshore, Application: Online, Agent: No, Medicals: 16 Aug 2017, Police Checks: 31 Aug 2017

I am from the USA and applied 15 months ago. I haven't heard a thing, I have everything done and am still waiting. When I applied wait time was 15-17 months, so was hoping to hear something by now, but now its 20-25 months, so im screwed lol

Did anyone request your police checks/medical? If so, it could mean a CO is looking at your case, but it doesn't mean your application will be processed anytime soon either.

The average wait times from what we see on the forum is around 14-16 months. The "estimations" that DIBP give out are more so "maximum estimations". It DOES NOT mean your application will take 20-25 months, but that most applications are processed in that time, whether it be a month month or 15 month or 22 month wait.

HELP

So I applied on 19 November 2016. we haven't heard from immi besides police check for my partner. I don't know it's because whether I am from a high risk country (Turkey) or I took a while to upload documents, or I left the country to visit my parents and went for a holiday with my husband.

Now it has been 13 months, since I lodged. What do you recommend? should I go to a solicitor, or should I not panic and keep waiting until it's 20 to 25 months :)

Thanks

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum and very pleased to be here. I applied Onshore Partner Visa 820/801 since April/2016 and I haven't heard anything from the Immigration. I submitted all of my documents and did my Medical test in October 2017. I am so worried if I did anything wrong in the application .

I am from Vietnam (24 yo), married to an Aussie (28) in 2015 . We were together for 1 year before married , I applied for Partner visa 4 months later . My Student Visa is still VALID even though I have stopped studying for over a year ( pretty sure the school already cancelled my COE) .

* My question is : Should I go back school now in case they find out I am holding no COE while going through my application ? or I just leave it alone since I am saving for a home loan , I don't really want to spend on anything else. ( the processing time is now changed from 20-25months )

I even submitted form 1221, Form 80 and everything I could.


I believe my application is strong and relationship is genuine as we met at work and we share a lot of mutual friends .My in laws went Vietnam to meet my family before the Wedding ( photography evidence) and my family came over here a few times to visit us after the wedding. We are on Lease Contract , bills , holidays receipts together. However, it has been 20 months and hear NOTHING from them.. I am stressing out ..It has become depression these days . I checked Vevo, Mail, Immiaccount at least 3 times a day, my heart skips a beat every time someone mentions about my application / paperwork .

I'm sorry for a long post and thank you for reading this .
