Hi I applied for my Partner Visa 820 June 10, 2017. Done the Medical same month. Jan. 8, 2018 my Case Officer requested for AFP and Form 1229 Consent Form from my son's dad. I have submitted all additional documents on Jan. 15, 2018. My ImmiAccount says Assessment in Progress. How long do we usually have to wait for the decision after submitting the additional documents?

Hello, do you mean that they would just reject it while you are away, if they are planning to reject it? Or that they would wait until you return before they reject it?

I'm asking because I was overseas when they emailed me and told me they wanted to finalise my application. I asked if I needed to come back ASAP or if I could keep my flights the same, and they said I could keep my flights the same.

I haven't heard anything back and I've been back for 10 days now - emailed them to inform them I'm back, but no change in status... just wondering whether their behaviour indicates a rejection since they did not ask me to return.

I dont think They will reject your application. I can feel that you are stressing . Just wait and hope they will get back to you soon ..It's Australian Day this week so your CO might have taken some time off .i guess...

GOOD LUCK

It is normal to stress. Just wait. Maybe your case officer has taken some time off work - it is still school holidays in some states and Australia Day long weekend too.

Maybe the case officer has been away sick too. You could think of alot of reasons. Try to relax if you can.

Thank you! I managed all this time without stressing but then they said they were close to finalising and I haven't been able to think about anything else since!

This is how it looks for me.
I have submitted for 11 months now and it's still shown as received and there isn't any status written beside the sponsor's name.

Can anyone pls tell me what can I do?
Thanks



Mine looks the same, thats what it looks like when you submit your partners application on your account. Mine has looked like that since October 2016 :( and im front loaded from a low risk country lol

Hi guys. I've applied 26th feb 2017. Got an email in dec asking for my partners police check - gave us 28 to reply, which we did. Thought that was the case officer, turns out it wasn't as the case is still standby. Why give us 28 days then? Think we got fairy strong case as well. I'm currently on 457, and need to leave my employer in few months time. Just hoping it will come through meanwhile, if not I'm going to have to cancel it (got 90 to look new sponsor, which I don't want to do). So I'm guessing I'd be given a bridging visa, that won't allow me to work- which is fine, although it would be great to work. Do you think my case is progressing at all? Have I got any hope getting working rights in case I cancel my other visa? Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm an absolute nervous wreck and it's stressing me out so much. Thank you

While applicants often receive generic e-mails asking for information, specific information indicates that someone is looking at your case and the request was from a CO. What do you mean by "the case is still standby"? If you're talking about your visa status, it pretty much stays the same until your visa is processed. I wouldn't go by that.

28 days is standard time to upload requested information

You can work on a bridging visa A while your partner visa is being processed; it gives you unlimited work rights :) I'm not sure how that effects your current employer, perhaps someone else can help with that.

Hi, and thanks for your reply.
I received and reply from the person I send my email to regarding the police check and they replied back (that was weeks ago)
"I have checked and a copy of the AFP check has been saved to the Departmentís record of this application. It was actioned accordingly.


No further contact is required from the Partner Sponsorship Assessment Unit. However please note, that his does not mean the application is finalised. When your case is allocated to a visa processing officer for a decision, they may require further documentation from you.

So that does tell me it wasn't a case officer asking that info and noting else has been asked since. Nor has the visa status changed to "in process".
I'm not currently on bridging visa but on 457, if I cancel that, it also cancels my bridging visa that came with 820, hence I'd need to apply for basic bridging visa that has no work or travel rights. It says on immigration page that applications are being processed by their date yet there's so many people here who've only waited 6 months and they've got it? How does that make sense? :(
