Your comment of no contact to say nothing is happening is very true.

You also know far more about the whole process than most and know "everything required" and we both know that takes far more than the average effort.

But shyt all that know how goes in hiding when you actually are doing your own applications - talk about mental blanks!

First time told to get out of town. Second time grant. And true on that... I remember how overwhelming the process was for the first application. Much easier from this side of the fence after 3 years of daily research!

Oh yes of course! BVA it is. Thanks for the correction

hallo..
When the tourist visa is expired, the BVA will be automatically active, is that right ? We do not need to submit any form rite ?
We are now in same position. Hopefully we can hear good news soon :)

Correct. When the stay period expires and you're still onshore, the BVA will go active. You can always check VEVO to be sure.

My partner got a phone call from the department yesterday, from a private number at 2pm on a Sunday afternoon which threw us off a bit. Anyway, the case officer just wanted to confirm the dates he lived in Canada for and then told him he needed a Canadian Police Check. He got his police check ages ago and we uploaded it onto my application which he explained to her and she was able to look on my application documents and see it. Then she verbally told him he's approved to be a sponsor but she has no idea how long it will take until my visa is assessed.

He just signed into his ImmiAccount and the status still says received. I'm guessing it will take a day or two to reflect the approval??

Will this case officer be the same one that assesses my application? Anyone have experiences on how long their visa took to be approved once their partner's sponsor application was approved?

Finally we are getting somewhere!!! We applied on 13 July 2017 and attached all police checks then as well. The only thing I haven't done is the medical but I will wait until they request it.

Hello everyone! I am new to this forum.

I wanted to know if any of you applied 820 being on 600 visitor/tourist visa? Apparently one can do that if there is no "no further stay" condition is in your visitor visa. But does it affect the evaluation process? Any successful visa grant story this way? Thanks!

Yes as long as there is no NFS condition. People do it all the time.

Hey guys,

How far into the actual “assessment” of the visa are the medical checks requested.

We’ve just been contacted by the department requesting these and no other information and are hoping to gauge what this means for the visa.

It’s been 50 weeks since application.

Cheers

There's no real clear answer on this especially given how some applications have been granted in a few months while others are taken the average 12 months +. There have been people asked for medicals one or two months in to their wait who ended up waiting a whole additional year, and others who've been asked towards the end of their wait and received their grant a few weeks after getting it done.

Best thing is to get the medicals done as soon as possible, and hope for the best. That being said, don't get your hopes up for an early grant too much :)

Hi this is my first post here. Hope someone can give me some clarity on 820. apologies if the question has been asked previously as there are over 538 pages here on this thread

I am holding 189 visa and recently got married to an Indonesian lady of my dreams. we plan to file onshore application ( 820). we both right now are overseas and i havent moved to Australia yet after the grant ( 1st entry done). I have read a lot about "no Further Stay " conditions and or visa rejection for subclass 600. what is the possibility of tourist visa granted to my wife if i show myself her sponsor ( as in financial aspect) and writing a statement of purpose relating it to the fact that i am still working overseas and have not moved yet to Australia. so there is no reason for my wife to extending her stay beyond the duration mentioned in the visa application ( typical 2 weeks stay).
