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 agree with CollegeGirl that probably moving would only need to be reported for the applicant. However, I think it wouldn't hurt for them to know where and how to contact the sponsor, too, so I'd update them.

Do I understand correctly that your partner is in Amsterdam and you plan to join him after the visa grant to move to the US together after that?

Yes, that's the plan but it's obviously hard to move forward without having the 820 granted yet. The move to the US isn't necessarily permanent and is, of course, contingent on my partner getting an appropriate job and E-3 visa in the states (though we're fairly confident we could work that out). Having a "homebase" in Australia in any case would be preferable in case the US doesn't work out for our post-European adventure. We've been together nearly 4 years and plan on getting married but we don't want to get married just for visa purposes.

hi everyone,

I just had a quick look through the forum and there doesn't seem to be any new grants recently :( that's abit discouraging.

Hello all, new to this forum. I've been in Australia for 4 years, during which I met my husband and we fell in love and got married. I've applied for my 820 back in mid-March via a migration agent, and right now I'm still waiting. I come from a low-risk country (I think... Singapore?), and according to the migration agent I shouldn't have a problem. But I'm not sure. So here I am, in this waiting room as well.

p.s. I applied in Perth.

Welcome...
 
Hi Janet... Welcome to the 820 waiting room. You'll need lots of patience, but we're here to support and help you where we can. Perth seems to be a bit faster than Sydney or Melbourne at the moment, but things can change with DIBP at any time. Best wishes to you and your husband... cheers...:)

i read that the average waiting time is 12-15 months? dear dear. we're already married but we're having another traditional ceremony in singapore in march next year. does that mean i'll have to apply for a bridging visa b before i leave IF i don't get my tr application approved by then? and how long in advance do i need to apply for a bridging visa b with the immigration department this is the case then?

Yes, it does mean you'll have to apply for a BVB, if whatever visa you were on previously has already expired. BVBs are relatively inexpensive. They don't usually grant them until the last couple of weeks before your trip, but they do always (from what I've seen) grant them for any reason these days, so you don't have to worry you won't get it.

So I am finally one of the lucky ones, on Tuesday, out of the blue my 820 grant notification came. I never got any questions from a case officer or anything. Hopefully all of you who have been waiting a while get some good news soon, now the wait for the 801 begins!

I applied on 22 July 2013 with a decision ready application.
