Thank you
I think she was, as quoted on her signature

The 820 processing for the PMV applicants is faster than direct 820 applicants, but the total time is about the same, when you add the PMV and 820 processing together.

The processing time for barbara was: 5.7 months on PMV, plus 7.5 months on 820 = 13.2 months.

The last four direct 820 grants have averaged 13 months each.

Ours from PMV application, to 820 grant, totalled near enough 12 months.

An interesting timeframe is the time from first partner visa application (300 or 820) to final 801 grant, at an average of 37.5 months in 2019 so far, up from the 36.5 months in 2017. (figures taken from 82 grants reported on this forum)

It was such a nice relief to have stage 1 done and we can now stop checking emails so often The email you get is so understated and boring. No words of congratulations. Nevertheless, we celebrated

Looking at your timeline and hoping yours gets granted soon. Must be close.
I hope it is granted soon because we applied 7 month before you, I think applications are shared across the load and ours is hiding on someone's system lol.

Last Friday after emailing immigration we finally received an AFP check for the applicant. My best guess is that our application has been transferred to another processing centre to 'share the load' due to high numbers of applications to be processed and it has just been sitting there idle until I sent an email asking for an update.
Hi Liiza,

Could you share the email address you used to follow up with immigration?

Yes, I did come from a PMV

I don't know how accurate this is, but I am pretty sure I read on a facebook post made by a migration agent that applicants who come from a PMV get processed a bit faster for the 820 because we have already been "pre-assessed" for the PMV, so basically the CO would only need to check that the applicant got married and that the now marriage remains legit after the PMV was granted.

Wow!! Great data!! haha
However, I must add that I was overseas for the majority of the time as I still work back in Brazil (I have patients I still needed to see) and I did receive an email saying they were ready to make a decision on my case last year - so I don't know if that means that my visa would've been granted sooner if I was in Australia at the time.

Hi Monev,
If your PMV is Onshore, you can email here. Quote your client number, name and DOB in the email. Email to the STATE in which you live in and applied.

Hi everyone, I finally got an email from immigration requesting that I do my police clearances.

Does anyone in WA know the best possible place to get fingerprints done for Singapore CoC? Apparently police stations don't do them anymore and I had gone to the Malaysian Embassy, only to be told that they are not authorised to do it.

When I needed to do my fingerprints for my FBI background check, I went to a fingerprinting place in Perth. I can't remember the name, but it was near the CBD. You can do a Google search and find several to use. The cost was $99. You need to take two forms of id with you.

Thank you for that. Thankfully I found one closer to me that does it for $90.

So frustrating that the police stations don't do it fingerprinting
