And i heard that i can not granted the permenant visa .801 after 2 years since applying 820/801 unless we have a baby in this 2 years
Is that right ??

or i will wait the permenant visa granted or not after 5 years as we have no babies

IS THAT CORRECT ???

No. You have read something regarding people getting the 801 grant at the same time as getting the 820, applicable to couples who have been together for at least three years, or two years if they have children, at the time of application..

Without that long relationship, you end up waiting for both the 820 and the 801 waiting times.

Sometimes though, the processing times might end up not too different.

For us, with no children, it took 3 years and 8 months from PMV application to 801 grant.

Lodged an onshore partner visa application via a migration agent last august 30, 2017. For reference, my partner's Australian, I'm Filipino.

Received an email for medicals/police checks for both me and my son last february 2018. (my partner declared my son so he can also move to Australia with me once I'm all settled.) It's now May 2019, still no word from the immigration and getting really frustrated with all the wait.

Immigration seems to be dragging application processing these days. My son's 3rd tourist visa application renewal this time is taking much longer. His previous visa applications were approved in less than a week, and now we had to rebook the flights as his tourist visa hasn't come through :(

Just. So. Frustrating.

Hi Cinnamon Sugar,

Do you know if your agent has contacted the case officer to follow-up your application?

In my case, I have been on BVA for 16 months. I was also very worried as I haven't heard anything from them or even get the 820 grant at that time. So my agent contacted the CO to follow up my application. She told me there's no harm in trying. After she called the CO, they asked for additional information (Form 80). Then 3 months after, I got my 801 visa approved.

Also, make sure that you continue to submit new evidence to show that the relationship is still ongoing.

All the best!

Evidence of contact while apart
 
Hey everyone,

My partner and I are applying for an 820 visa, for her. We are finding evidence of contact while I was overseas last year, but we were wondering if we also needed to include evidence of contact while apart on a day to day basis (like while I'm at work, for example).

Any help would be really appreciated!
Thanks!

You can provide as much evidence as you can get, to me "its never too much"..

i provided chat evidence while i was overseas and while i was at work, at uni , on the train etc.. just normal everyday conversations.

hopefully this helps

Hi,

We were asked to provide additional information which our agent has our form80 since 2017. On top of that we were asked to gather more evidence of me and my partner living together, i.e. mailing addresses for letters and such in the same address. What I did to provide a concrete proof or legitimacy the least, is i screencapped our social media accounts/posts, my phone's camera roll with the geotagged locations as we can't provide a lease contract since we're just renting a room here in Sydney. If I remember correctly, it was around February when we were asked to provide additional information.

I just want to get this visa over the line TBH. It's no fun having to apply BVB via mail all the time and can't do it online :rolleyes:

No, they're looking for when you're physically apart for periods of time, not just the day-to-day stuff. If you still want to submit that stuff as extra evidence though, I personally would separate from the actually apart stuff and label them clearly.

I think there is a point where it's too much. They don't necessarily need to see every little thing for someone to satisfy requirements. And if you put too much, it makes the job harder for the CO and it's my personal opinion that the more well organized and less burdensome apps probably get processed faster.

Someone on here posted about using all 100 spaces for applicant and sponsor. That is so incredibly unnecessary and in that case, you certainly can provide too much. Quality over quantity and organization is key. I've had all three visas granted in faster than average time with a limited amount of documents (about 30-35 total) uploaded.

That being said, that's just my opinion. We each have our own apps to do and do them how we feel is best. So nothing wrong with doing what you did either!
