Just applied for 820 in Sydney. Does anyone know how busy they are? Also, how long does it take them to send out confirmation letters? Money was withdrawn today so I wanted to make sure that I don't end up without a letter.

Does anyone also know how the Bridging Visa may work? My wife has been offered a permanent position. under the PMV she was allowed to work, so I assume that the same rights carry over to BVA?

Hi Rich. Welcome to the forum.

It's good your wife is there on the PMV already. PMV to 820 applications are generally taking just a few weeks to a couple of months right now, so chances are she'll have her 820 in hand in no time. Bridging Visas do come with full work rights for partner visa applicants these days, but she probably won't have to be on one very long anyway given how fast these applications are being processed. You might have a grant at the same time you have a confirmation letter, lol.

Woohoo. 3 day grant time. Decision ready application. sent on the 21/10/2013, got the grant email on the 24/10/2013!

Does anyone know what does UK Class mean? Partner Temporary (UK class)? Also how does the transition from 820 -> 801 work?

Are you sure it says UK class? Never seen that anywhere before. Anyway, it doesn't matter. She's got her 820. Woot! Two years after she *applied* for the 820 she'll be eligible for Permanent Residency (801). Two months before, they'll send her paperwork to fill out, so make sure you keep your address current with them.

Class UK is another name for 820 and Class BS is the other name for 801 - I think they're outdated though.

Believe it or not, not for this type of visa (PMV to 820). But it is great!

From the second stage partner checklist UK = 820 and UF = 309 http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/form.../checklist.pdf

Applicants who applied within Australia for a Class UK (Partner Residence) (subclass 820)
temporary partner visa should submit their additional information or documents to the Partner
(Permanent) Processing Centre Melbourne:
Partner (Permanent) Processing Centre Melbourne
Department of Immigration and Citizenship
GPO Box 241
MELBOURNE VIC 3001


Applicants who applied outside of Australia for a Class UF (Partner Migrant) (subclass
309) temporary partner visa should submit their additional information or documents to the
Partner (Permanent) Processing Centre Brisbane:
Partner (Permanent) Processing Centre Brisbane

Yeah, I went and looked that up after it was mentioned. It's just not something mentioned much here so I'd never noticed it. Good to see you posting, Ktty!

Partner Visa and Visitor visa at the same time

Dear Members and Seniors, Moderators

I am Aus Resident and want to apply for partner visa for my wife (she's in India).
My stay in Aus is not more than six months. I am in Aus right now
My queries are :
1. Can I apply for Visitor visa for my wife just after getting the file number for Partner visa application (as it is given on the spot at VFS office after lodging)
2. Can I apply for a Visitor visa for six months. What are the chance of approval in case of 6 months visitor visa.
3. Our marriage is nearly 3 years old, would it be any positive impact on Visitor or Partner visa. We have all evidences of supporting our relation.
Its really very hard to live without her.... any help will be highly appreciated...
