Hi everyone,

Wanted to share my great news, I received my 820/801 two days, hooray. Feels surreal actually!

Here’s a short timeline summary:

Onshore application: 4th Aug 2017
Request for sponsor checks: 6th Nov 2017
Pro-active submission of Applicant’s Police Checks and Medicals: April 2018
820/801 Grant: 30th Oct 2018

As far as I am aware my visa was processed in Victoria, Australia. The status of my application remained “application received” until the grant two days ago.

Good luck everyone!

Joined the waiting game. 820/801 submitted on 12th October from PMV after our wedding on 7th Oct.

Thanks to all those for their advice & tips. PMV was granted in 8 weeks can only hope 820 will be similar lol

Hi everyone!
Just a quick question.. there was a debate recently on a Facebook group for partner visas regarding your 820 visa application being on hold while you're overseas on a BVB, I asked my migration agent and she said she has never heard of such thing, being that sometimes they still ask for more docs and etc when the applicant is overseas

Has anyone ever heard of such thing?

No. That makes no sense to me either as I know from personal experience when they didn't put my offshore app on hold while I was onshore. They processed it then notified me to go offshore so they could finalize it. I've heard them do the same for onshore applicants when they're offshore.

I am sure this has been asked a hundred times, but when you are asked to supply more documents, for example police checks. When you upload them into the relevant category, is that all you have to do? Do you have to include a note to the case officer or notify them in any way? Presumably they will be alerted that a new file has been uploaded?

Hey,

So...

I am on a 457 visa and am still waiting on it being cancelled by DHA (I stopped working in July 2018 - 457 was valid from 05/16-05/20). This is now past the 90/60 days, so I'm a little confused.

Since then, I have gotten married and lodged my partner visa in September onshore. Application is received and bridging visas have been granted but VEVO says I still have the 457 active. I've now been told by my migration agent that the 457 won't expire, it'll be cancelled and I will lose my bridging visas and will go onto a Bridging Visa E.

Has anyone gone through a BVE before?
How hard is it to add working conditions onto it?
I wasn't aware or told that my 457 would be cancelled, it was going to expire. :confused:


Thanks in advance

It's nicknamed bridging visa E for "Evil". If you're using an agent, why not discuss with them how difficult it is to get work rights on a BVE?

They don't always cancel visas straight away. Don't be surprised if you get notified of it one day if the partner visa hasn't been granted by then.

Medical Examination
 
Hi all!
I applied for Onshore - Partner Visa 820/801. I just recently received an email with an attachment request to do medical exam. It said: You are required to undergo the following health examination(s) to ensure that you meet the
health requirement for Partner (subclass 820) visa.
But when I went to download my eMedical Referral letter it said on the Client visa details Visa: BS 801 Spouse (Permanent)
I am confused, when I am booking for BUPA you have to select which visa subclass it is for, and both the 801 and 820 are there separately. Which one should I choose? Will it have any affect on my visa application?
Please advise. Thank you.

1. That's not a request to do the medical. That's an automatic notification that every partner visa applicant gets as a medical is a requirement of the visa. An actual request comes from a CO.

2. You've made an application for the permanent partner visa (hence 820/801). The medical referral letter is meant to say 801, so I would choose 801.

Tinfoil hat speculation here role playing a CO for which I am completely unqualified:

Perhaps the CO's put a note to grant after the BVB expires to ensure that you are only going overseas temporarily and to grant the visa only once they can confirm you are back together physically (in this case onshore) with your partner.

This based on the post few pages back in this thread where someone was granted on the day their BVB expired - which also could have been pure coincidence as others pointed out.
