IMO I don't think it applies to everyone.
My partner doesn't even know what Centrelink does as he came here as an international student and applied for his PR and citizenship 10-12 years later. I asked if he knows anything about his Centrelink and he goes "I know nothing" lol.

Do we have any document where we are capturing the 820 visa processing times here?

I have applied for 820/801 VISA.
Applied on 30th Sep 2018
Submitted all the documents including PCC etc, medicals done. No response from immi yet. This is my 11th month. Still waiting. Anyone from India applied being onshore here? Any idea when I can expect 820? Planning to travel to India during Christmas holidays, if I don't get 820 till then, I will need to get another bridging VISA B.

That only applies when the sponsor is claiming a benefit from Centrelink.

The answer related to someone who said their
partner had not updated her centrelink details.

What type of proof did you provide for this stage? Is an immigration lawyer needed or it’s easy to do it yourself?

Anyone here who had a request for a phone interview from the immigration?

Just a bit of history with my application, mine was lodged August 30, 2017. Submitted medicals and police checks March 2018, now the catch? They bloody asked me for another medical and police clearance on top of the phone interview, and obviously with the clearances, they need to request for a new one as it's only valid for 1 year. Not fair how they can just easily milk out $500 when it was the delay on their end that caused the clearances/medical to lapse

Got my 820 grant through yesterday, have been stalking these forums for a while now whilst waiting for my 820. I am a British dude and my partner is Aussie.

Timeline: Applied 21st May 2018
Request for more information End of May 2019
Grant of 820: 21st August 2019

I almost laughed as it came through. I got a job for the WA government in April this year and due to my visa (bridging visa A) I couldn't apply for a permanent position until I have permanent residency. They were extending my contract every 3 months but November this year is when they have to advertise the position. I sent an email off (from my work email which has a "wa.gov.au" ending asking who I might be able to speak to about this issue and what I could do to about my situation. Literally an hour later I get the grant notice, along with a reply to my work email stating my 820 was granted. So happy, as now they will allow me to apply for the permanent position, and whilst I cannot accept a permanent position until I get 801, they can offer me a long fixed term position whilst I wait for it.

I am curious whether I could have just sent an email ages ago to get the grant notice haha. and I sent the email to the address shown in my request for information.

Congratulations

Just wondering which email from immigration did you send to? Was it the email from Case Officer?

I have got my email from the University (edu.au), as I work casually there and waiting for my visa to get a permanent position.

I submitted my application Dec 2018, and haven't received any emails yet.

Thanks.

Congratulations, and Yes, it is highly probable that the email triggered the grant. I have seen a few now, where a request for info was followed by a grant, reasonably quickly. (not as fast as yours though).
We got something similar, after I sent an email asking something, with the grant coming reasonably fast after that.

I get the feeling that it makes them look at it, and IF everything looks OK, and nothing is missing, they might decide to grant it, and get rid of it, rather then review it later.

Your Email address, might have had a hand in it also.

it was to the generic, [email protected]

I think yeah my email address made a huge difference, but I directed it at the person who first sent me the request for more info. It was only a first name but I guess it helped get the email directed to that person. Here's to hoping I win my job back when it gets advertised, I want to keep this email in future trying for my 801

You will want this to contact for the 801..
Partner (Permanent) Processing Centres Enquiry Form https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/help...s-enquiry-form

It's the one we used for the 801.
