In relation to the baby was it mentioned in any statements? If not then let them know. Then once the baby is born give them a certificate afterwards.
I applied by post to the sydney office. I didn't mention the baby because I must have conceived around the time i sent the application so I didn't know I was pregnant. I'm gonna give them a call. I don't even know if I have a CO. Will update you when I hear from them.

We've hit the one year mark . . . Not in any hurry just want to be able to go for a wedding overseas in March! I know they approve BVBs for serious medical reasons but what about weddings? ��

Since the processing times for partner visas blew out to ridiculous timeframes,,BVB's are granted much more easily. Haven't heard of anyone being refused the BVB and they will accept "visiting family" as good enough reason to grant. There doesn't seem to be the compelling circumstances requirement any more.

Thanks for that info Valentine1981. I guess we can give it a go.
I feel like the 820 will be taking at least one more year.

Newbie

Hi

I'm new to this and would like to see how other people go in the same situation as mine.

I applied for my 820 visa last week. I checked the online post tracking service and my paper application arrived in Melbourne on the 12/12. By lunch time I had received 3 emails. One automated to say my bridging visa was approved but will not start until my previous one expires on feb 15th, one with my payment receipt and another requesting the AFP check which I sent of today.

When my bridging visa starts can I apply for medicare ? I'm from Ireland so iv never been entitled to it.

You can apply for Medicare now. As soon as you apply for your 820 you became eligible for Medicare.

Medicare

Hi Kellie
I believe you can apply for Medicare now, as you have lodged your application for the 820/801. There is a helpful thread on this issue. Good luck...

We are 14 1/2 months too...still no news. I sent an email requesting an update because I thought it was after 13 months you could do that but got an auto reply saying that they wouldn't provide any updates until after 15 months waiting. Looking increasingly unlikely to get a result before Christmas

Hubby & I submitted his application today (still in the process of uploading docs) so guessing I'll be hanging around this thread for the next year (plus however long the waiting period has ballooned out to by then).....

We're hoping he'll get the 801 immidiately as we've been married for 7 1/2 years, and living together in Norway for a little over 7 years (just arrived back in Aus this past week).
