Great! congratulations. lets hope there are more grants and faster processing times

Hope so too. Sometimes it's good to gather more information before applying and the arrangements of the documents makes it interesting and easy to glance through. I was surprised about grant time. When I received the parcel I thought my documents has been rejected but lo and behold the grant letter was inside

Hi Papper and Salt - congrats on your grant. :) It's actually very common for PMV-to-820 applicants to get a grant that quickly. You actually don't need medicals or police checks, generally. :) Glad to hear your good news - enjoy your spouse visa, and mark your calendar so you remember to start preparing to provide documents for your 801 in a couple of years. :)

Yeah, I was 1 week short of 16 months. My 457 was due to expire in March, so very relieved as my company don't like bridging visas

I just got a grant email, no other contact since i submitted

can you apply for the 801 2 years from the date you applied for the 820 or is it 2 years from the date you were granted the 820?

PAPPER AND SALT 01-19-2015 03:43 AM

As it stands now I need to wait for the immigration department to send me the documents for the 801. And I believe it will take 2 years for them to send those documents or less. I got my 820 in July last year

Guys, you're eligible for 801 2 years after you have submitted your application, not 2 years after you have had your 820 granted. So you should be eligible for 801 in less than a year if your visas have taken approximately 15 months to be granted. Add 3 to 6 months of processing time for 801 and you should be Permanent Residents in a max period of a year and a bit. Good luck.

Yep, what Bay said. :)
