May I ask what office you applied to? 7 months is much faster than many here, so it would be interesting to know if there are any particular reasons. Time to celebrate I guess... enjoy... :):):)

Hi Dinkum,

We applied to the Perth DIBP. It was a paper based submission and my partner was on a sub572 student visa prior to applying, and she is from the Philippines. Yes i do find it interesting especially coming from a high risk classified country. We submitted medicals and police checks on the date of application with the international police clearance submitted on the 01st of Aug when requested. Also no interview was required.

Thanks for the info. It seems Perth is ahead of Sydney at the moment. Cheers...

not just the Sydney office. Perth is faster than Melbourne too at the moment. there are already several Dec applications approved from the Perth office.

how i wish melbourne and sydney can be a bit quicker with the processing.....

Hey guys

first time poster but long time reader, i just wanted you to know that i am among you people, waiting for godot lol

my partner and i sent in the paper application early november 2013 (melbourne office) and have been waiting since.

we received (as many of you i suppose) the email saying that a case officer will be allocated soon, but we tend to believe that 'soon' might be interpreted as up to 6 months or so lol.

when we submitted the aplication we also included the form 80, however this last email from the immigration was mentioning the same form again (a newer issue), which i looked up and seems to have a few different questions.

do they imply that we need to re-submit form 80? would it be worth asking them?

cheers guys

My guess is it's just boilerplate language on a boilerplate email asking for it from people who haven't yet submitted it.

Hi CG

just goes to show how random the whole process is

we sent in a paper application to melbourne on november 4 2013 and was approved in june (and we were deemed from a 'high risk' country) and did not receive any contact from a case officer or anything

change in cirucumstances
 
Hi all!

Long time lurker of this site- tremendously helpful for putting our 820 app together!

Questions regarding "change of circumstances": My partner just moved to Amsterdam this week for study for the year. We are still very much together (and missing each other like crazy!) but in the hustle and bustle of his move we neglected to submit the "change of circumstances" form (and, quite honestly, we were hoping to have the visa secured now). Looking at the form, I'm wondering if it's necessary as his circumstances, not mine, have changed? Is the form necessary if they sponsor has changed location? Will it just slow down the process even further?

We lodged 30 of Jul, 13. I had a BVB for a few months to see family back in USA. No CO but request for more info received in April (AFP check I had neglected to get, otherwise decision ready app, returned in person the same week). Not a peep since! I called up IMMI last week to check up on the app- they confirmed the AFP check was received (thank god) but could not provide anymore info as the 15 month mark had not passed. I'm reassured to see that so many others have been waiting for similar amounts of time but I NEED this sorted as the plan is for me to join my partner in Amsterdam in January before moving to the US.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I believe you'd only have to notify them if you (the applicant) were moving. Not if the sponsor is.
