I've been seeing a lot of applications that were submitted after mine have already been approved, so I'm starting to get a bit antsy.

I was thinking of maybe doing my medical exams and attaching them even though I didn't get a request to do so. Do you guys think that would be a good idea or not?
Definitely get it done yeh if it's a year since application

820 Victoria Processing Time

Hi, I am sponsoring my husband for his 820/801 Visa.
We lodged the visa in January, 2017 - BVC granted
Have completed all required police checks, health checks etc and submitted documents via an immigration lawyer as a paper application, as my husband was unlawful from overstaying his holiday visa.
We have been married for 3 years with 2 children and have been waiting almost 17 months now.
Has anyone got an idea of processing time from the Victoria/Melbourne office.
It is really effecting us as we cannot apply for a BVB to return back to the USA to visit his family. His parents have been here a few times, however his siblings and close family have not yet met our children.
He is from a low risk country and has 2 children, i would think it would be closer to a priority application.
Interested to hear from anyone in a similar position with application wait times.
Thanks

There isn't really such a thing as "priority applications", and while low risk countries do seem to be processed quicker than many high risk countries (often due to additional security checks required), the fact your husband over stayed obviously complicates things.

You've just reached the 75% processing time for an 820 (17 months) with 90% being completed in 24 months, so as frustrating as it is, I think you just need to hold tight. If you get passed the 24 month mark then you may consider getting in touch with the department.

Hi kthomp13,

I'm in a similar situation, my husband is my sponsor. I'm from the UK (low risk country) and we submitted in January 2017 via an agent. Submitted all police clearances and health checks last month. We have been together for 3 years, married when we applied so very low risk application. Still nothing from the department and on top of that processing times have increased to 17-24 months. Dreadful, really! I've applied and been granted 2 BVBs to travel with, the first one with a 3 month travel period and the second with just 4 weeks (hopefully this means my visa processing is imminent). Unfortunately there's really nothing we can do except wait! Fingers crossed this means faster processing for the 801...!

Cheers

We had our lawyers apply for us via the NSW office but I've been made aware that since lodgement, my case has been shuffled between NSW, QLD and is currently with WA. My husband's FBI clearance was requested for in November last year but with all the US red tape the clearance only came back before Easter. We submitted his FBI and AFP clearance and within a day they CO requested my health checks, UK, AFP and Indian police clearances. I submitted all the requested documentation within a week of receiving the request. It's now been 6 weeks since we submitted the documents and we haven't heard anything back. I've applied for a Bridging B Visa since then in hopes that it would speed up my application but it didn't work. It really is ridiculous and unfair we've had to wait so long considering my application is so extremely low risk (no dependents, no criminal convictions, no health problems) and my husband has been an Australian citizen for more than 10 years.

Very frustrating indeed.

Yes, we are not eligible for a BVB so it is extremely frustrating that we cannot go back to visit my husbands family, as majority have them have not even met our children yet.
