How has your experience been so far, and what are the things you worry about? How long have you been waiting?

Just a thread for people in 'the same boat' (although we're all very different) - mods if this isn't an appropriate thread (because the information can mostly be found through Timeline Search) please feel free to adjust, close or delete! I'm just curious who else out there is (still) waiting, since both applicants I knew have been granted before me!
Wel. Although this post is from 2011 I will use it to let off steam. My wife and I were married in Thailand in 2015 and applied for a 820 Permanent Partner visa in 2016. It took 8 months to accumulate the data required to prepare the Partner visa application through a registered Migration Agent. We were advised by the agent that our application was one of the best-presented applications he had seen and based on that he saw no issues in the visa being Granted, After 18 months waiting for a response, I started putting pressure on the agent to see what progress was being made. We were constantly told "The application is being processed" but no timeframe was ever given for completion. Not long after the last request, there was a communication from the DOHA indicating that my wife had paid me a substantial amount of money to process the visa. Under the privacy act, I was unable to determine who had made the false unsubstantiated allegation as I wanted to take legal action and sue them.
After sworn affidavits were sent to Immigration it was another 3 months before we were advised that our application had been refused. We immediately applied to the AAT to contest the decision and took out a DVA and were told we would have to wait for 12 months to appear before the tribunal. The agent made no indication as to what were in for and as the 12-month waiting period was drawing close we changed agents to get some action. After paying another agent fee we were still getting no action and in fact, were given advice that would have jeopardised the AAT appearance. Despite holding a DVA we were notified by DOHA that as my wifes student visa was about to expire we were to take out another student visa or leave the country within 2 weeks. We questioned this with the agent and we were advised to take out another 2 years student visa even though we had a DVA. After jumping through hoops of fire we applied for another 2-year student visa. Unsatisfied with the new agent we changed agents yet again, another $4,000 fee, and were advised to cancel the student visa as this would be detrimental to the AAT appearance. The fee for the student visa was not refundable when cancelled and the further $4,000 paid to the college was only 75% refundable. Despite being married for close to five years we have been advised that will now have to provide even more documentation than the original application before the AAT appearance, almost like starting from scratch but double. Adde to that we are advised that the possibility of an AAT hearing would take another 2 years as there is a 44,000 plus case backlog. In the meantime, our son is still in Thailand and I have lost valuable time to nurture and guide him before age 7 NOT A HAPPY MAN

Hey barbara,
which office processed your application? My wife applied on 25 August 2018 so a couple of weeks after you. We also come from PMV so wondering if our grant is coming back soon! What state were you residing in Australia? NSW or somewhere else?

thnx

Hi all,

I just realised that I may have submitted all the sponsor's information under my visa application (Stage 1 - Partner or Prospective Marriage Visa), and that under his application (Sponsorship for a Partner to Migrate to Australia) there are no documents. I thought I had put the relevant ID and police clearance under his, but there are 0 documents uploaded. Should I upload the same documents that are already in my application?

If your sponsor's documents has proper name which is easy to recognize, I think you don't need to upload again. But, If my file names of sponsor' documents are not straightforward, then I would upload these documents again under sponsor's section and name them properly. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have news guys, my 820 visa has been granted just a few minutes ago.

I come from PMV, so here's a short timeline.

PMV application : Jan 2018 in Dubai
PMV grant : Aug 2018
820 application onshore (Aus) : Dec 25 2018
820 grant date : Apr 10 2019 (no contact or further documents requested)

For 820 application - I didn't upload any police checks and health check wasn't requested.Im assuming it's because my PMV documents are still within the validity period of the documents? Also, my application status was "received" just before it was granted.

Hopefully more grants will be processed quickly!
