Dear RTSY, It's a shame that we are on the same boat here. I submitted my paper application for 820/810 in January 2017 and I heard nothing ever since then. I only heard from them January 2018 requesting my wife's UK and AFP being my sponsor. We supplied them these requested documents and we heard nothing since then and not until 3 weeks ago, I got a generic email that my application process is in progress. And then again, 5 days ago, I got another email asking me for the provision of AFP and Form80. Still waiting for my AFP to arrive so I can post all these unending request. But, I have decided based on peoples advice on here to also add some updates such as new photos montage, bills and even the new house documents we just bought and also me and my wife joint account statements. This is where I'm upto mate. Hope this helps!

Look on the bright side, if you hit the 24 months mark, they may just grant the 801 with your 820. That's one benefit of them taking so long...they do both at the same time.

Yes i agree. My wife and i waited for 28 months in total for her VISA.We didnt hear anything untill 27th month when they asked for her Medicals, AFP and Overseas police clerance. Good thing about whole long term waiting is atleast she got her 820/801 approved at same time.

And when that does happen, it's actually a shorter wait than most... 28 months from app to PR when most people wait 3+ years start to finish with long wait times after Stage 2 eligibility.

Hi all. First time poster, long time reader.

Made my application for the 820 on 10/9/18, and the waiting begins. I'd been in the country for a year on a WH visa, while my Australian partner and I decided if it was viable to stay long term (and pony up the $$$). Established relationship for more than 3 years. Applied directly rather than through an agent.

I have a few questions that I couldn't find answers on anywhere else:

- My confirmation of application email only makes reference to my application for the 820, not the 801. Is this normal?

- I can see people discussing police checks for their partner/sponsor in this thread. I gave details on my holidays and living arrangements in the last 10 years as part of the application, but didn't see any reference to places my partner has lived/vacationed. Did I miss something?

- Now that I'm on the bridging A I need to re-enrol in medicare, should I do this on my reciprocal agreement (UK Citizen) or on the basis of having applied for a visa which grants permanent residency (801)? Not sure especially since there is no reference to the 801 on my acknowledgement email.

Thanks and good luck to all who are still waiting.

1. Yes, because the first stage of this visa is the 820. You'll be eligible to apply for 801 2 years after the 820 application date.

2. You're not missing anything, they did only ask for the applicant's history of living arrangement and travels - not the sponsor.

3. Not UK citizen so I can't help you with this one, but I did get my medicare once I applied for the 820.

Hope this helps

Super - thanks.
When I got my original medicare card it was limited to the same timeframe as my Working Holiday visa - 12 months. I wonder how that works, or if there is no limit when you apply with the 820? I don't know if you have different medicare rights/entitlements depending on how you gained your card. Maybe one for a different thread.

Your medicare card is a temporary one (valid for 12months, and they'll send another temp one after that 12months) until you're granted a permanent visa (in this case the 801).

I believe it's the same rights/entitlement to a permanent card - at least from my experience I didn't have anything different re:entitlement to my partner's when I had the temp ones.

Mkarina is correct. No limitations on the temporary card and Medicare automatically sends you a new one about a month before the old one expires. I just got my third temporary card in the mail the other day.

The application is for both the 820/801. Stage 2 is eligibility, not application. The application fee is actually covering the permanent residency application, hence why nothing is paid at Stage 2, because it's not an application.

Also, the only reason applicants are eligible for Medicare is because they've made the permanent visa application, which is the 309/100 and 820/801. You don't need to reach Stage 2 eligibility to be eligible for Medicare.

At least when my partner (sponsor) did the sponsorship form, the travel history was a section in there for him as well.
