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.
My 820/801 acknowledgement letter (the PDF attached to the email, not in the email) stated this at the top in bold letters: Acknowledgement of application received for a Partner (Temporary) (class UK)
(subclass 820) / Partner (Residence) (class BS) (subclass 801) visa
. And according to immigration, it's still the same process: You apply for both the permanent and temporary visas at the same time and pay only one fee. Try opening the grant letter that's in your immi account and see if that one shows both subclasses.

Police checks and the travel information required in both the online application for the applicant and the sponsor's online form are two different things. These two things are also different to the Form 80. You'll have to clarify the question a bit more.

You were eligible for Medicare the day you made the 820/801 application and received the acknowledgement letter. This has nothing to do with being on the BVA or not. You should apply for Medicare as a permanent residency applicant (the 801 part of the 820/801 application). You'll be issued an interim card but you have all the same Medicare as someone with a normal card. The difference is your card will say "interim" and be valid for one year at a time while you are waiting to finish the partner visa process. Each year, a new interim card valid for another year was sent automatically. Once you get PR, you'll be given a regular card with the longer expiration date. Keep in mind you'll always need to update paperwork when you get the new interim card each year as the last digit and expiry changes.

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.
Thanks for correcting the terms for application/not application. Just thought thats what everyone is saying here '801 application'

It's used loosely here, but it is an important difference to note, especially when dealing with Medicare. You'll notice that immigration never refers to it as an application at Stage 2.

As of a few years ago Sponsors are required to submit Police checks from any country they've lived in for more than 12 months.

You haven't missed anything, I didn't supply mine with my application as I figured they would expire by the time the approved my partners visa. They did however ask me for mine a few weeks after applying.

I needed to supply ones from Australia, Vietnam and Canada and they were quite a nightmare to get (Overseas mailing, Translations etc), so if you've got some countries you think might take awhile I would suggest getting the ball rolling now.

Hope that helps! Good luck.

The wait is over! I got my 820 granted today, having submitted the requested documents last week friday. The 1st part is done and now waiting for the 2nd part. Goodluck to those who are still waiting. The good news is around the corner...
Keep believing.

Hello there,

We applied last week for the 820/801 and to my surprise got a medical health check request the next day. I thought it usually took some months before the medical needed to be done? Also, is it normal to have the HAP ID referral letter reference only the 801?

Thanks!

Nice! And yes it usually takes months for them to ask for it. Yes the 801 is what is referenced in letter.

Was it an "Action required" type notification in immi or an email from a CO with the request?

Everyone gets the immi notification. It's not a request but an automatic thing for all partner visa applicants simply because a health exam is oart of the requirements.

And you've made an application for the 820/801 (note it's both. 801 application is not the same as eligibility two years later), so yes, it is supposed to say 801.
