No way to tell how long it will take, tzeling. Sometimes the 820 takes as long as 18 months, or even longer for people from very high-risk countries (malaysia isn't one, though, I believe, so you should be okay). It could be much shorter, too. No way to tell. Just try to sit back and relax, as hard as it is. You'll get there. And best of all - you get your PR two years after APPLYING for your 820 - so if they take 18 months to process your 820, you'd be eligible for your PR just six months later.

By the way - they can take as little or as much time as they need to process it. There's no maximum amount of time they are allowed to take.

Hi there, I just came across this forum. I am from Ireland and I am on my 2nd 457 visa as I have been in Australia for 6 years, my partner is Irish and a Permanent Resident, I lodged my 820 application on the 18th of November decision ready and my Migration Agent cant tell me anything as she has not heard anything from Immigration, I am getting quite frustrated now as its going on 8 months and nothing.

If you see the processing times for most applications you shouldn't be worried if you've waited for 8 months only, unfortunately. Wait another 5-6 months maybe and if nothing has happened by then you should probably start asking questions.

Average waiting times for the 820 are 13-18 months now. unfortunately. Some people do get theirs earlier, but typically people wait a year or longer now.

You are right CollegeGirl. We submitted ours in October 2013, and still waiting. It's July now, so we are over 8 months ourselves.

Just have to wait and play it out. So painful, but what can we do.

I have just put all my documents together to apply for work rights. Is it possible to email them (whats the email address) or do I have to post it in to the Sydney office?
If I post it can I use copies of my receipts and other financial evidence (without them being certified) as I still need the originals.
Sorry guys I'm just not sure. Please advise, thanks
