Yes. any country you have lived in for the past 10 years. They want to know if you have a criminal history, nothing to do with if you have plans to return or not.

They may not ask for foreign police checks Again, if you haven't been outside Australia since the original one was accepted.

My wife didn't need her home country police check for the 820 or 801 application, as she submitted that for the PMV 300 the year before.

She did need new Australian ones though.

But, I suppose it can be asked for again.

I came across this forum few years back but when it is about time for my partner and I to apply visa, we decided to use agent cause we do not want to mess things up.

A bit background of us, we met online and been in relationship for almost 10 years when we about to do the visa. We do met in person fair few times, which almost every year too.

Started with Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300)
Lodge in: 7 August 2018
Request for Additional info: 9 October 2018 (police check and medical check)
Granted: 2 May 2019, it took about ~9 months in total

After we got married, we continue with Partner visa (subclass 820)
Lodge in: 31 December 2019
Granted: 8 January 2019, it took 5 working days
They do not ask for police check or medical check though through our agent I attached newest police check but not sure if my agent attached it in my application or not.

Currently just waiting till I am eligible to apply for subclass 801 . :)

Some of my takes on using agent, they are helpful to help us collecting bits and best practices to do these documents, as well as rechecking all the documents. But at the end of the day it is really up to us to ensure we have the right documents too.

This is also my question, we were asked to provide the overseas police check Nov 2019. I applied Dec 2018 and provided the overseas PC Jan 2019, since then, we have not visited our country nor travelled overseas elsewhere.

We uploaded again the PC we had, do we need to do it again even we haven't been there after submitting the application?

Thanks.

on 457 - waiting
 
Hi everyone,

Applied for 820/801 partner visa November 2018. Front loaded, police checks and health check complete (now expired). Low risk country (Canada).

I am currently on a 457 visa that does not expire until April 2021.

The only correspondence we have received was acknowledgement of receipt of application November 2018, and grant of bridging visa A on the same day (does not come into effect until current visa expires), and "application in progress" on November 2019.

Any one else in a similar position? Wondering what the chances are of the visa being approved before my 457 expires.

The average processing time for the 26,118 subclass 820 visas finalised in the 2018/19 year was 497 calendar days (16.3 months).

I saw one from Canada in that period that took 13 months. But another two that took 23 and 25 months. But no idea how well their applications were prepared, or if they had issues?

You'll be on a bridging visa with full working rights anyway when your 457 expires so I wouldn't worry

Thank you for the reply. I should have said in my original post that I want to leave my job, so the worry is not about not being able to work (partner has a farm, will be working there once partner visa is hopefully approved), my worry is about having to work in my current job for much longer.
