Hi all,I noticed that very recently increased numbers of approved 820 applications on facebook groups.*We lodged our application in March 2019 and haven't received any request from immi, everything is front loaded (incl. medical check) and last month we got married (partner is now AU citizen).*

Is there any way we could try to speed up*the process by contacting/emailing immi, as it feels like no one have even touched our application after 13 months?

(only thing was auto generated email after 1 year was lapsed)

If you have submitted a decision ready application, you may not hear from them until either the auto letter after 12 months, or the grant itself.

The average time for grants recently has been about 17 months.

Those that do get contacted earlier have often missed things on the application.

If you were a holder of an 820 visa you may be eligible, as they have waived the waiting period.
Student visas are not eligible.

You will only know if you apply, but I know Centrelink have stated that even some Australian citizens and Permanent Residents are not eligible.

The official statement was: "International students who are unable to support themselves financially for the next six months in Australia are encouraged to return to their home country and families."

The main problem is being considered a resident, which includes PR and 309/820 visa holders who live in Australia.
