We did a bit of both and maybe did about 20 uploads.

Sometimes you need to upload something to explain why you can't provide some evidences.

Shared finances is a topic that is often talked about, and some people worry when only one is earning. But as long as that one can show they share theirs with the other, then that covers sharing.

You need something to show you are sharing as a couple.

Thank you!

As for me, I'm from Malaysia and I applied for 820 in Sydney in early October. Mine is a decision-ready application as well. I did not go through 300. So far I have only received an email from the department acknowledging that my application is valid, together with the grant of Bridging Visa A, etc.

I'm not worried about anything, really. Soon after my BVA kicked in, I applied for a Tax File Number, and enrolled into Medicare. Currently I'm looking for a job. In terms of visa, there is nothing I can do now except waiting patiently for my 820 because you really don't know how long it will take. When things are beyond my control, I will just let it be.

Here's wishing all of us a smooth journey to 820/801. :-)

Hi Just a question did you come to Australia on a tourist visa before filling in 820?

Hi! I have some queries regarding the health assessment.

I Lodged my Onshore Partner Visa application 25th February all done except for my Police Clearance from Philippines which is already in process and the Health Assessment for me and fir my daughter (dependant).
I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and scheduled to give birth really soon.

Me and my 11 year old daughter are both required to do the Health Assessment. Upon clicking on it, it leads to the Emedical page where its asking for medical history. Last questions there asked if the applicant is pregnant or not and the due date.

Questions:

1. Should I answer the Emedical questions now? Or wait until I give birth?

2. After answering the Emedical medical history questions, what will happen? Is that when they will send the Referral Letter for Health Assessment?

3. How long does the emedical Referral letter lasts? Does it have expiration date?

4. How much does the Health Assessment usually cost? What tests were you asked to do?

5. There's a question there: Have you ever been admitted to hospital and/or received medical treatment for an extended period for any reason (including for a major operation or treatment of a psychiatric illness)?
- I had cesarean delivery with my first child and appendectomy several years back. Should I put that on this particular question?

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't bother doing the health assessment until you're ready to do the medical. Prices vary. Best to contact the center you plan to attend and ask.

Hi Guys! I just wanted to give an update on my fiancťe and my timeline.

Iím Australian he is from USA; he came to australia on a WHV in Dec 2016

Submitted Onshore 820 Spousal: 11 Oct 2017

Request For More Information: 10 Feb 2018 from Australian Embassy in Washington
Required:
-AFP Checks for us both
-FBI clearance for him
-Medical

Submitted all remaining docs: 8th March 2018

Fingers crossed we get an answer soon as itís been really quick!

Just FYI for all USA applicants; you can now submit the FBI check and pay online through their website and send the fingerprint card in the mail. We did it online, express posted the card and got the clearance within 1 week of posting it. We also went to officeworks and purchased a stamp pad and did the fingerprints ourselves as the NsW police wanted to charge us $50 to take them. We watched a short tutorial on YouTube and sent 3 sets away and it worked fine!!

Good luck to everyone waiting

I'm assuming all these quick turn arounds and grants are due to offshore embassies taking over some of the load. Congrats and good luck guys!

You applied 1 week before us and we got approved 2 business days after we submitted the requested Health/AFP Checks. Partner is from USA as well and our case officer's letters were from Washington DC embassy we noticed. Approval came thru around 7am Sydney time, which is 4pm Washington DC time. Took 4.5 months total from application date to 820 approval - we were amazed and so excited. Good luck! :-)

Hi everyone
Just update everyone of our visa progress. We were asked yesterday for more information to provide -only AFP on the list. Guess They donít need other evidence otherwise They would have asked. The email came from the Processing center in Victoria. I live in Victoria and was a surprise to Find out that My visa is processed in Victoria. There was no case officer number just signed as Temporary Partner Processing Center Victoria.
History of application
Applied: 20 th February 2017
Type of application: marriage
Applied onshore
Medicals done upfront
Other police checks included upfront (They are expired now But didnít leave Australia since applied and wasnít requested other)
December 2017 sponsor asked for AFP because We put a normal national police Check and They wanted the federal police one
March 2018 asked more information -applicantís AFP only
Total 12 months and one week So far
Quick question did u mention in your AFP application all your previous adresses you lived at abroad? I havenít lived at different addresses in Australia just one?
Thank you

Fingers crossed and good Luck to everyone ?

Hi guys , I have a question please. I had filled in my health assessment form more than a year ago but havenít done the test yet but I have the HAP ID, been waiting 19 months now. Was wondering if I should do my test or wait. And which test do I have to check in to do on the BUPA form? . Canít find appointments around me but checked in other states and there are openings am in NSW can I do it in another state ?
Thank you

tarzieb27 03-08-2018 12:13 AM

Congratulations!!!! Seems like we were in the same boat for sure!! I hope I get an answer by tomorrow that will just be the absolute best weekend present!! 4.5 months is pretty amazing; glad they are sourcing the straight forward apps offshore to get them out of the way quicker.
