Hey guys quick question:

I applied for my 820 last month and have gone onto my Bridging Visa today. I have a Bridging Visa A and I have No Conditions added onto it. I entered Australia on an eVisitor visa. I've seen mixed messages about what my rights are on Bridging Visa A with no conditions (specifically work rights). A few sources suggest I will have the rights of the visa I applied for, some suggest I have the rights of a permanent resident and others suggest I will continue to have the rights of the visa I entered Australia on. What is your experience with this, and will I be able to find work?

Hi all,

What are the financial requirements for being a sponsor? is there an amount of money needed in your account to suffice?

I think you have to prove that your partner wouldn't be dependent on the government for support.

For anyone wondering how long things are taking at the mo for onshore 820 visa, I received a request for police checks and medical check finally on 6 March 2020 after applying 23 October 2018. 500 days wait exactly!
Hopefully it will be a smooth process after I get everything together and uploaded. My partner did his police check at the time of application but I left everything else as I knew they expired after 12 months. I'm from UK, and we have a fairly straightforward case. A friend of mine from Spain received her 820 in January and had a very similar wait before being asked for documents (she applied June 2018 and documents requested November 2019).

They come in the mail so maybe that has been delayed. Check on your original application details and call the AFP. Upload a copy of your application and a quick note to state you are waiting.

IMHO it's about time they sent an email copy as well as the mail. DHA do talk to AFP if needed!

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.

Hi Gurbhej, it is certainly possible to apply for a subclass 600 to bring your partner to Aus and then apply for a 820. I am in similar circumstances as you (recently got married in India). There are two issues you need to watch out for:

1. Immigration may place a No Further Stay condition on the 600 visa which would prevent her from applying additional visas in Aus. I have assisted in 5 subclass 600 visa apps from India in the past 2 years and this condition was never imposed, despite all 5 being first time travellers. So you may want to watch out for this condition.

2. One of the criteria for subclass 600 is to provide evidence that the applicant will leave Australia before the visa expires. This becomes difficult in cases involving partners where the applicant does not intend to leave Aus and apply for further visas. However PAM3 (Immigration policy) specifically states that officers need to be lenient in relation to cases involving partners and the fact that an applicant may subsequently apply for a partner visa later is not grounds to reject subclass 600. You may want to make this clear in your application.

My wife applied for a 600 in August 2019 from India after we got engaged. 600 was granted without No Further Stay and we had made it clear in her 600 app that she intended to apply for a partner visa in Aus. 600 was granted in 2 days - she remained in India until we got married a few months back and then travelled to Aus. She's now applied for her 820 visa 2 days ago and automatically received a BVA which is inactive while her visitor visa is still in force.

My advice would be to do solid research and put forward an honest application (remember your local Federal MP's office can sometimes be of assistance if you face difficulties in dealing with the department). Good luck veerji!

Recent experience with 'Decision Ready' app
 
Just wondering if anyone knows any recent experiences regarding decision ready applications and expected timeframes. I am aware that in 2018 certain decision ready applications were being processed in 3-4 months while the standard timeframes were 12-15 months. But I haven't seen anything recently.

My wife lodged a decision ready application 2 days ago (police certificates done + medicals to be done soon), hence any guidance on decision ready applications will be appreciated.
