Just over the 1 year mark, and such a relief.

Good luck to everyone else still waiting and hang in there!

My wife lodged June 2017. No answer yet, not even medical request.

seems like the majority got 820 approved 12 months mark.

If I was you I would get the Medical going now. It might speed the process up. Is everything else done?

For what it’s worth, I have a friend who applied in January 2017 and still hasn’t heard anything, not a request for medical or anything. This friend also used a migration agent.

Don’t be disheartened! I don’t think there’s a logical way (from an outsiders perspective) as to what order these are processed

5400 posts this threads sooooo gonna get a fresh one soon...

On another note - exactly as JandE said - Harry get your medical underway to save any further delays, although there is a possibility it can expire, it probably won't and you will probably have grant sooner rather then later.

Either that or just send them a befuddlement draught.

Hey guys,
We applied in March 2017. Our application was ready to go with all of the paperwork except medical and police check, but we took the risk and uploaded a couple of months later.
I noticed in April 2018 it said my partner was approved to be a sponsor. We didn't hear anything off anyone once and no further requests for information and we were granted the visa on 2nd July 2018.
Just wanted to let you all know to hang in there. We were so nervous and worried all this time, but it worked out fine. I now know I can live (hopefully when 801 is granted) happily ever after with my partner 🙂

Hi All,

Thank you for all the valuable info and experience you've shared. It helped me tremendously in preparing and lodging 802/801 application for my elderly parents in June 2018. They have been happily married for over 40 years so it was actually nice to discover along the way some interesting stories while they were students and met for the first time at uni etc They have limited English hence my help to prepare their application. My mum is the sponsor. Through reading this forum I managed to apply interim medicare for my dad straight away after lodgement. Considering his age it's good to have a medicare and we can cancel his tourist health insurance.
The waiting game starts, its good to know you are not alone.

Insurance

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is well.

I'm currently on BVA waiting for my 820 to be processed. Am I able to get Medicare or do I need to get private health insurance?

I called immigration and they were like you need to continue your private health insurance that I currently have from my 485 visa even after it expires in September for BVA?

Has anyone else had any experience with this?

You were/are eligible for Medicare the day you *applied* for your 820/801 visa application.

Hi Sarahmay,

you can just take the BVA letter and your identity to Centrelink and apply for an interim Medicare. Once done you can cancel your private health insurance. I did that for my dad as mum sponsors him through 820/801.

Contacting Case Officer

Hey everyone!

I applied for my partner visa in May 2017, and I have finally been assigned a case officer. She requested I do my medicals and also to send her a response in writing.

In her letter, she said "You must respond to this request within 28 days after you are taken to have received this letter. You should provide your response in writing.
Send your response to me using the contact details provided below.
As this letter was sent to you by email, you are taken to have received it at the end of the day it was transmitted.
If you do not reply within the timeframe specified above your application may be decided without the Department taking any further action to obtain the requested information. If you are unable to provide this information within this time you should contact us using the contact details provided below.
"

The only contact information I can find is the email [email protected] which seems to be a general email. I already emailed this address and got an automatic response. In addition, the case officer only provided her first name, so I haven't had any luck searching for her personal email.

Is this standard and am I supposed to just reply to the general email address? If not, how would I go about contacting her? I sent the reply 20 days ago and included the case officer's name and the position number. I asked a couple of questions and was hoping for a reply which I didn't get yet, and now I'm starting to worry I don't have the right contact details. I don't want to mess things up so close to the finish line! What can I do?
