I submitted at the Brisbane office--what about you? Were you able to find a new job after you lost the old one?

Just a small vent - I know I shouldn't 'cause I'm lucky to be with my partner, I just don't understand why international couples seem to be the b*tthole of society in terms of rights and administration.

My homecountry has an obligation for people to be "registered at a residing address" in The Netherlands, and everyone must be registered somewhere, and everyone who is registered must have Dutch health insurance. Citizens who are not registered at a Dutch addresss can't take out health insurance.

However according to the "rules" everyone who is abroad for 8 months or more is officially a migrant and HAS to unregister from any address - meaning no more health insurance. The only way to reset the 8 months is to go back to the Netherlands, which I'm not allowed to while awaiting my 820.

At the same time, my BVA awaiting my 820 will not get me any medical care here, and ironically, the Netherlands and Australia have a reciprocal health care agreement, meaning I AM automatically covered under Medicare because I am Dutch... IF I am insured in The Netherlands. Which I'm not allowed to be anymore.

Why is it that we always fall between the cracks, with absolutely everything? We don't belong here and we don't belong where we came from anymore - we pretty much just get punished and 10 times the amount of complications and paperwork everywhere just because we dared fall in love with someone from another country.

Sorry I had to vent. This is getting really tiresome. The waiting, the paperwork from both countries. They both seem to be free to put a claim on our money but neither seems to be obligated to take care of us without us jumping through numerous hoops.

You can get medicare as soon as you apply for your 820 visa. You just need to take the acknowledgement letter to medicare.

Nelly, that sounds very frustrating! However, Mish is right, you are allowed to register for Medicare here. I've done it, and the US doesn't have any health insurance itself, let alone a reciprocal agreement with Australia!

If you've been told you can't register by a medicare official, they're wrong, and you should ask to speak to management. All you need is your passport, acknowledgement letter, and (to be safe, though it isn't wholly necessary) marriage license. They'll give you a temporary receipt and your card will get to you in a week or so. The card is only "temporary" and you'll have to renew it once your visa is granted. Mine expires one year after the date on my acknowledgement letter. (I'm sure if visa processing time goes over one year they make concessions!)

Still, there are an awful lot of hoops to jump through, and not really enough information on some things. I only applied for Medicare a little while ago after finding information about it on this forum. There is a tiny little section in the acknowledgement letter that talks about it, but it's easy to miss. I hear you--paperwork, paperwork, waiting, complications, three million hoops... it's a mess. BUT we'll all get through it and be stronger for it, right?

Unhappy

Hi all, I lodged my onshore application in late Sept 2012 in person and so far I only received an email from the IMMI saying that my application will be processed in the next few months and IF any additional documents / Police Check/ Medical Check which not yet submit is required to send now (remind you this email was received in Sept 2013). I tend to suspect that maybe their practice is application which lodged in Sept 2012 is used to pick up in Sept 2013. That's why the acknowledgement letter mentions processing time is 9-12 months
I've no idea what is going on and how many months do I need to wait more. Kinda frustrating.

Row Row Row a boat ~~~~~

Ahbee -- what a long wait you've had!! Hopefully they start processing your visa soon. Did that request for more information come from your case officer, or was it just an automated message? Fingers crossed you don't have too much time left before your visa is granted.

Amandy -- I'm so curious about the online system! Keep us updated on your application.

Yeh I'm curious and excited about it too - It seems I'm the only one on this forum that's done the 820 online so far. Anyone else?

Inkhearted, No they didn't request any information. Yes, It was just an automated message. In fact I've heard someone who got their 801 visa in 18 month..!!!! Hope I won't be one of them
