I used a lawyer to apply in 2016 and they said I had provided sufficient evidence at that time. The request for information looked a copy paste of the initial evidence for the application.- nature of relationship, financial aspect, social aspect..etc. NOTE that I had submitted all these in 2016. So this time i provided an updated and active joint bank statement, my car rego and insurance showing my current address, more recent photos, previous wedding invitations, updated whatsapp communication, I did an Australian stat Dec, partner and his mum did an Australian format stat dec, i wrote a personal statement, i submitted 2 form 888 from different people who didn't submit in the first go, our updated timeshare paid off, future travel plans..etc We gave them more information to prove that our relationship is still genuine and on going. So I would suggest you dig up all the strong evidence you have since you applied and submit to them. It has been 3 weeks since i submitted the evidence and i have now been asked to go for my medical assessment.
So just give them what they want and good luck!
That is an interesting point.

They may be asking for more recent evidence, to prove the relationship is still ongoing, but not wording the question correctly...

Maybe they need feedback on that one..

Hi Everyone!

Very excited to share that we received our 820 grant this morning!

This was our timeline:

OnShore Application from Victoria as DeFacto
Partner from Colombia - High Risk Country


18/06/2017 - Application submitted, we uploaded all of our evidence only missing medical checks and police checks

17/01/2018 - Request for Police Checks, Medical Check and Evidence of sponsors parents citizenship at birth ( this came from the Australian Embassy in Washington DC)

24/02/2018 - Notification of 820 Grant - also came from the Australian Embassy in DC

We were really lucky with a short waiting time. All the best of luck to you all

I have received my additional documents request yesterday after only applying on 2nd December 2017. So shocked with how quickly it’s starting to be processed! My CO stated in the email “please respond to me in writing within 28 days to the contact details below” .... what writing am I suppose to be responding to her with? I thought I just have to upload my requested additional documets to my immi account?
Can anyone shed some light on this for me please

Make a note to submit the 801 documents around August 2019, two years after the 820 application.

Immigration do not remind us anymore.

Hi everyone!

Onwards and Upwards... still celebrating my grant!!

It has been a very looong wait but i'm over the moon at the moment. I have been granted the 820 visa. I'm in Melbourne, partner Aussie & am African...HIGH risk country. Visa lodged onshore and migration lawyer lodged on my behalf. Below is my timeline:

26/06/2016 - Application lodged online with ALL the evidence documents in the checklist minus medical assessment.

***From then, no other documents updated to my application*** until,

20/03/2017- submitted evidence of overseas travel, plus photos of my partner and i with my family.

**No other documents submitted until...

8/01/2018 - Department requests more information indicating i need to submit evidence under the 4 main categories of the checklist i.e. nature of relationship, financial and social aspects..etc..

**Submitted within 3 weeks and then back to WAITING..... Again...

19/02/2018- Department requests for me to undergo medical assessment

*** Couldn't find an earlier date, so on...

24/02/2018 - Went for my medical assessment- (took me 45 mins to complete the 3 checks..WOW! so quick and organised)

And finally the email I have been waiting for...on

27/02/2018 - Notification of 820 Grant - came from Melbourne.

In total it's been 20 months and 1 day of WAITING and unsure of my future in Australia.Now I'm so excited, overwhelmed and thankful.

My Advice: Keep updating the department through uploading more documents (i.e. recent evidence) as soon as you get them. For my case we had evidence since lodging in 2016 but we didn't submit until we were asked in 2018. It would have saved us the hassle and stress of providing the documents on the checklist (already previously submitted in 2016) to prove that our relationship is ongoing. HOWEVER.. every case is different, this may not apply to you. I am providing THIS ADVICE as to how i think may have turned around my case. However i think it was up to the CO to decide on what documents they saw fit to proceed processing MY case!

All the best everyone who has lodged or waiting for the outcome..

Now onto the next stage 2 permanent visa 801 to apply in June 2018.

Hope this detailed timeline helps someone!

Big congrats, Qween! Thanks for sharing your story with us, I'm sure the additional evidence you uploaded and medical test was worth it I hope you enjoy your time here in Oz with your partner. Best of luck for the 801.

I wanted to share some very exciting news, we just received our 801 grant. We got the 801 immediately as we have been together for over 5 years and we were careful to detail that specifically in our statements.

Timeline below:
UK (low risk) applicant onshore (Ours came from Jakarta embassy)
Applied: Sep 19 2017 (everything incl. police checks front loaded)
Request for medical: 9th Feb 2018
801 Granted: 28th Feb 2018.

I am hoping that this means that the visa processing times are speeding up. I would recommend anyone who has waited an exceptionally long time to call, or email or get in touch with the DBIP by any means to have your story heard. We waited a bit over 5 months in the end.

Best of luck to everyone!
