"In order to be eligible for a subclass 801 visa applicants must be able to satisfy the following criteria:

They must hold a subclass 820 visa;
They must continue to be sponsored;
They must still be the sponsorís partner; and
Two years must have elapsed since the lodgement of the subclass 820 visa."

Two years must have elapsed since the lodgement of the subclass 820 visa. I misunderstood this part, I thought it was like you must have the 820 visa for two years. It makes everything quicker now. I thought I would have to wait like 5 years in total to get the 801.

Some people will say that they get the 801 even without getting the 820, because they think they never got the 820 email.
In practice though, they might get the 820 and 801 grant email at the same time, with the 801 granted a few seconds after the 820 grant.

The "rules" are sometimes broken by immigration themselves.
Some people get the 801 in less than 2 years from the 820 application date.
For example these 801 grants in Oct/Dec 2019.
16.8 months from 820 Application date.
11.6 months from 820 Application date.
18.3 months from 820 Application date.

It does depend on how long their relationship has been proven.

Getting granted 820 while on BVB
 
Hi everyone!

Maybe someone already asked this question but I couldnt find the answer just now.

We are planning to go back to my home country for 6-9months because of work obligations and were just wondering what would happen if they decide to grant the 820 during that time?

We applied for the 820 on December 2018, and just got granted BVB from Feb 20 2020-March 2021. We called the department but could only get from them "you have to be back in Australia to be granted the 820", they couldn't say anything about how much time they give you to return to Australia. I'm just worried that they might demand that we drop everything and get back to Australia the next day or something, or otherwise forfeit everything. As everyone I suppose, I will have work obligations that I can't just drop, will need some time to make affairs in order.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

Some 820's from PMV's have been pretty quick recently. A couple of recent ones have been 5 and 8 days. But with the 820 grant often about 8 or 9 months after the 300 application.

Ours, back in 2016, was an 820 finalised after 3.2 months, from Philippines. But 13.9 months after the PMV Application. The PMV itself took almost 9 months.

When was your 300 granted?

My PMV was granted on May 10 2019 (application lodged 03 November 2018). So we waited just over 6 months.

I was in the same situation. My husband and I don't live in AU just yet. We went there for the wedding and lodgement of my 820 visa and had to go back to my home country (as he works there on a contract). The department, having a way of knowing whether I was in the country or not, sent me an email, requesting to inform them when I will be in AU because my 820 grant was pending. Luckily I already had plans to go there right before my PMV expired. I let them know, and less than 48 hours after arrival to AU I was granted my 820.
Don't worry about dropping everything, but you might need to take a vacation when the email comes through.

That time line to 820 visa being granted seems short considering you were on a 9 month 300 PMV. Wait times for 820 visas are 24 to 31 months on average.

The average processing time for the 26,118 subclass 820 visas finalised in the 2018/19 year was 497 calendar days (16.3 months). [Official times: 21-28 (75% were done in under 21 months, 10% over 28? months].

But the 820's from PMV's are often a lot faster than a normal 820.
eg: These ones in the last 3 months:
  • 820 Finalised after 0.2 months, from Finland. (10 months after PMV Application.)
  • 820 Finalised after 2 months, from Iraq. (16.2 months after PMV Application.)
  • 820 Finalised after 0.3 months, from ?. (17.1 months after PMV Application.)
  • 820 Finalised after 2.2 months, from UK. (19.5 months after PMV Application.)
  • 820 Finalised after 1.1 months, from Russia. (15.3 months after PMV Application.)

Your signature says you applied for PR on 3rd Dec 2019. Was that the 820 application?

Yes the 820. The PMV granted 1st May 2019 a little before the above mentioned poster whom were granted PMV on the 10th May 2019.

I am sure the PMV application date is not relevant because the couple must marry within the 9 month window before applying for permanent residency. This could be at the beginning or 8 months into the PMV.
If the DIBP take the PMV application date as the start date for permanent residency consideration then that is good.

It does indicate that the combined 'PMV + 820' processing times seem to be similar, in total, to the normal 820 processing times.

They do appear to do the 820, from the PMV, much faster, as we already spent time waiting for the PMV process.

PMV+820 at between 10 and 19 months total time, (ave 15.6 months from that small list), compared to the average 820 of 16 months.

Hello all, I have just receive a request for AFP check for my partner and in the attached letter it says we must respond to this request within 28 days after receiving this letter. And we should provide in writing through the contact provided "below"

Do we need to actually write to say we have receive her request and AFP is now in process? and the email provided "below" the letter isnt the same as the email which the letter was sent from. Any idea?
