Can anyone provide some advice...not sure if we've been forgotten.

We have been waiting for our 820/801 since applying in January 2018. There has been no news since then. We applied from a PMV300. It's been about 20 months now! I dont think I've seen anyone wait this long coming from a PMV 300. Application is pretty straightforward - been in long term relationship before getting married.

That does sound bad. From a PMV, the 820 is normally pretty fast.

Have you sent an enquiry asking if you have been forgotten?

We sent an email a couple of months back which went unanswered. Not sure what else can be done except to send several more until we get a reply?

Hi there.

I'm in a similar situation to Monev. The application was submitted in Nov 2017 and we haven't gotten any news yet. Since the estimate is between 22 and 28 months we expected it to be rather late but I'm not sure it's normal. Every 6 months we get a "In process" on the immi site, which seems automated.
We never contacted them because we figured it's better to not seem like we are impatient, but I'm not sure anymore.

What is the right course of action?

That timing means that 75% were done in under 22 months in the previous month.

I've noticed quite a few people get grants shortly after sending in a genuine enquiry for something specific.

sorry to bother you but I am wondering whether my partner should
apply for the fiance visa or offshore partner visa if we marry abroad
before i return to Australia . Assuming you and your spouse lived in
different countries , how did you satisfy the joint finances test which is
a crazy test really and especially for oldies like me with a few divorces
sadly as one never knows what might happen in a marriage ??. have had to wait 5 years after deception by former russian wife wife ! ( wry smile ) .
Hoping you will answer and congratulations on getting the visa .

A PMV does not need joint finances, nor a living together requirement.

It is the route we took.

Congrats on your grant mate! Do you know by any chance if your case officer or anyone from the department has contacted you, your partner or anyone who wrote the 888 form for you, by email or phone before they gave you the grant (apart from the additional document request)?
