They only send you directly to the 801 if you've been married/de facto for three years or longer, OR two years+ if you have a child together.

A bit of a random question: a few weeks back a forum member posted word that his CO had mentioned the quota had been reached for 820 visas for the financial year. I think this was around the beginning of June. In light of the post on the main page saying DIBP has confirmed almost 61,000 places for family visas for the next year, is it reasonable to think we might see a slew of visa grants come 1 July?

Perhaps not 1st July exactly, but it is pretty typical to see a bunch of grants in early July.

Guys, Does that really matter to have parents or relatives' presence in the wedding dinner or so ?
Because my mom and my brother are in Australia but they didnt support our marriage so everything we have done is without their presence.
Please help !
If that was a big problem then what should I do ?
Also, as our budget was tight so our wedding was very small around 15 ppl

Samanthayang--I didn't even have a "real" wedding; we eloped! So no wedding dinner or guests or family for us, and our visa was approved without any issue at all. I think your 15 guests, family excluded, is probably enough evidence for your application. Just get a couple of them to write that they attended your wedding and you're a happy, committed couple, and you should be fine.

Hey All
This my first post on this forum cuz im freaking out o.O Has anyone got their visa granted after Mid June? I was finally assigned with a CO last month after 12 months since logdgement I was required for additional relationship evidence and 80 form. I have submitted everything by 13th June.It's been two weeks i haven't heard anything since. I know it usually only takes few days to make final decision after submitting the additional infos.Could this becuz of the quota for partner visa had been reached for the year?I hope i don't get a refusal visa i will go mad my anxiety is soaring-_______-

Where did you get the idea that it only takes a few days to make a final decision after submitting additional info? That may happen occasionally, but it's definitely NOT the case most times from what I've seen, ESPECIALLY if you've just submitted a Form 80. Form 80 is what they use for security checks, so if they've only just requested it, it's possible they're only just starting them... I wouldn't expect a decision very quickly, I'm afraid, and just be happy if you get lucky and it gets here early.

The waiting game

I am the sponsor - handling the application for my fiancÚ who is from Greece and has been living in Australia for 7 months.

We submitted our application online at the end of February 2014, right after arriving back in Australia from a short trip overseas. 3 months has passed since then, so the bridging visa just kicked in. Yay! Now he's allowed to look for work!

We don't mind the waiting, but the no travel restriction is a pain because I normally travel quite a lot, and don't want to travel without my darling.

We already have a trip back to Greece booked for September, so will send off the application for Bridging Visa B next week. I hope they approve it!

The trip is only 2 weeks - but we need to go for many reasons:
- his father had a heart operation last year and isn't well - it's been 7 months since he saw him (will be 9 months by the time we go in September)
- his grandmother has had a couple of small strokes in the last month and it's highly unlikely she'll live much longer
- he needs to sell some stuff back in Greece, to get some more cash - as he hasn't been able to work the whole time he's been here (tourist visa)
- the flight he came here on was a non-refundable return ticket, and the return leg of it needs to be used this year
- we plan to marry in August next year (in Greece because his father is a priest), and want to start making plans (we want to look at a couple of venues while we're there)

Will DOI likely be ok with those reasons?

My family are in NZ and we'd like to go there for Christmas - he hasn't met my family yet, and all my travel the last couple of years has been back and forth to Greece. I won't go away for Christmas without him.

I'm hoping they'll approve the BVB for our September trip - but allow us 6 months window to travel which will cover Christmas as well. I've heard of this happening....

They've gotten really lenient with the BVBs lately. I imagine you'll be fine, and getting six months likely won't be an issue.

Johnfm,

Most of these visa's are not capped so there should be no reduction.

But history shows that the estimated number of family stream will within single digits or be exactly the same as the estimate (the estimator could win Lotto each week).

I also hear the Embassy we need to use will not issue anymore visas till after June - no reason was given.

Also interesting in reports is meeting or exceeding processing target! Yep true the target is and has been meet for many years. The target is 75% ------ (of "x" (a growing X at that). But 75% is meet and that looks good in the annual reports.
