Hi Everyone,

I have just got married and my partner is in India at the moment. I want to apply a 600 visa for her and once she is here I want to apply 820 visa. Please advise if this is the right pathway. Plus how the bridging visa work in this process. Any suggestions for the things that I should be taking care of in advance to keep this process smooth.

Thanks in Advance.

Garry

I reckon all applicants NEED afp check thats why i wonder why only my partner (sponsor) is getting the request and not me.

A new sponsor's AFP check was requested 4th September 2019. In 2 weeks I uploaded the clearance certificate (certification definitely not required)
30th December 2019 they requested the applicant police clearance even though everything had expired in August 2019!!
I supplied the AFP clearance for her in two weeks but when I received another request in February 2020 for a THAI police clearance AND a new medical
I realised the December request was for the Thai clearance!

Note 1. They have never asked for a AFP clearance for the applicant - only the sponsor - twice
Note 2. Read any correspondence from DHA and make sure you give them what they ask for.
I had missed the critical words FROM THAILAND
Luckily they asked again but upped the ante by throwing in the medical :mad: But it was was my fault :(

I am the sponsor to my husband, my request for an AFP check came one year before my husbands.

We were at 31 months when they actually requested the medical, police check (AFP) and then also we need to do an FBI Check.

In fact they never requested any additional information on my husband, it was all from me until now.

Hi Pillow,

I simply replied to the email "Request for More Information"
My replies have mostly not been responded to other than to say they had received it. The conditions for them to reply are stringent to avoid wasting time.

The email link will not be the same for all applicants as the majority of the processing is done in the Embassy of the country of origin of the applicant.
Most of my processing was done in Bangkok so my emails were sent there.

It was my own stupidity for not reading the initial Police Clearance request for the applicant carefully.
It was not for an AFP but Thai clearance.
But they gave us a second chance once I supplied the un-requested AFP clearance.
I guess they realised my blunder and helped us out.

Hello everyone,

Just a quick question, when you applied for Medicare after applying for your 820, did your slip say "Visitor?

achmatxforbes 03-02-2020 05:45 PM

Hello,

I've been searching all of the forums for an answer for my particular question; If you are engaged and would like to apply for an 820, would you apply as a de facto or a married couple? or is there an engaged option in the 820 application? (not referring to the PMV 300)

Thank you!
Achmat

As the 820 visa is for a de facto partner or spouse of an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, etc., you would presumably be either de facto (whether engaged or not) or married.

An option for engaged would presumably not be required.

Have you considered the 309? I'm not sure about the 600 route, maybe you can get some good advice from an agent. You don't have to use them to apply, just see if you can talk to one to go over all of your options.
