Does this seem strange to anyone else?

My brother seems extremely happy.. but as his sibling, I am concerned on the motivations of his partner.

Has anyone else been in a similar situation? and what was the outcome?

Thanks for taking the time to read my message
Let them know being married means very little for the visa. It's a fact but it could also be interesting to see the reaction if doing it just for a visa.

Thank you both for your replies, what you say makes a lot of sense.

The marriage part is what confuses me the most as I don't really understand how this will positively impact the 820 Visa. I know that 820 Visa can't be applied for if the relationship is less than 12 months (not considered de facto) so I am assuming they are getting married purely so they can apply. But surely marrying after 5 months does not look 'better', it just allows them to actually be eligible to apply in the first place..

What concerns me more is that this process began after 1 month of meeting!

Its a very confusing situation but I really appreciate this forum as there is lots of helpful information to get through as I try to make sense of this all

They ask me to do police check and health examination.
Police check is ok. i got it
Health examination: i am so confused. As i have done it already from begining straigh after the first time they had asked me to do. In the letter today, they also have showed if listed check with marks "completed" . then i dont have to do another one again. they will just use the existing one.
Any one got the same letter like mine after more than 1 year?
Please let me know.
Thank you in advance.

I think obtaining a tourist visa to get back is a common way to trigger the onshore grant. I don't think the process will go to pending while you're overseas, it will continue queuing until a CO is assigned to assess your case, and I'm pretty sure your CO will inform you to come back if your application is finally ready to be granted.

Why don't you wait until you arrived in the US and lodge in a 309/100 offshore visa there? It's a lot less troublesome, and I've seen a few quick outcomes lately that people were being granted 309 visas in anytime between 1 to 3 months after lodgement. They were all process at the Washington DC office. But again the speed highly depends on individual cases and it's better to choose a way that suits you the best over a quick turnaround time.

What kind of email did you receive? Is it a generic email update telling you your application is being assessed and you need to make sure all evidence has been provided. If yes, it's probably not from a case officer but rather an automated system update email.

Some people get it once a year or every six months, some don't get it at all. Some choose to ignore it, and some start to get their health checks and police checks uploaded. It's a matter of personal preference and a risk people wish to take to front-load all the documents because you never know how far away the grant is. It can be another few months, a year, or just a few days. So if I already waited almost a year and got this update, I'd probably make sure everything is uploaded and the application is in a decision-ready status because there's a good chance your application will be finalised within the following year or before things go expired.

If you choose to ignore this generic update, you will still receive an s56 RFI email from your actual case officer if anything is missing from your application and you'll be given a timeframe to upload them. This is usually the email you can count on and hope that your visa grant is imminent as someone is actually reviewing it for sure. However I did see people complaining about waiting for months even after RFI. So nothing is certain, unfortunately.

Hello everyone! Looking forward to hanging out here for a while, but hopefully not too long ;-)

Finally lodged our 820/801 online this morning and have been uploading everything I can since. Was planning on front loading as much as possible, but I think I'll hold off on the police and medical checks for at least a month or so, based on what I'm reading here.

I'm an American applicant married to an Australian sponsor since 2016. Became well acquainted with forums like these when we filed for the Aussie's stateside residency years ago. We've got plenty of evidence of our genuine, lifelong commitment to each other and no complicated histories whatsoever, so I don't expect much trouble with this application other than time.

Best of luck to you all!


Editing to add: lol, I hope I didn't just mess anything up... I just finished undergrad at an Australian university and subsequently received a notification that my Confirmation of Enrolment was no longer valid. I assumed this also meant that my 500 was no longer valid, as it requires a valid CoE. So when lodging the 820/801, I indicated that I do not currently have a substantiative visa, and explained that this was because I had recently graduated.

However, my Bridging A grant shows that my 500 will be active until 30 August 2021... even though I already graduated and no longer have a valid CoE? Strange and honestly a bit frustrating as I was very much looking forward to being free from the 500's working restrictions. Oh well.

As long as this slight misstep is unlikely to impact the 820/801, I'll just try not to worry so much about it. Anyone have any thoughts or advice on this?

Yes thank you! I would wait until I'm back in the US but that won't be until January 2020 and I need to work and live here legally until then

Hello everyone, all the best to those who have applied for the 820/801.

A couple of questions, sorry if i missed them in the thread.

Once the 820 is granted, do I just wait for the supposed 2 years for the 801 to be granted? I understand if they need updated docs such as police check...etc

If not, will they notify me when to apply a separate 801 form? Or can I just apply straight after the 820 grant?

Thanks a bunch!
