Medicals take a few days im sure. When complete they send straight through using your HAP ID

Quick question in regards to PMV to 820.

My partners PMV expires on the 5th Dec 2014 and we only applied for the 820/801 Visa last week. What happens come the 5th December if we haven't heard anything? Does that mean my partner is here illegally? Did we only have to apply for the 820 buy the 5th or does it have to be granted by the 5th?

They would have been granted a BVA which allows them to stay legally in Australia until a decision is made on the 820.

Hi Chris - Take a deep breath. You're fine. The minute you hit the submit button on the 820 application (assuming you're applying online?), your partner will immediately get a Bridging Visa A via email along with the confirmation of the 820 application. Typically PMV to 820 grants are very fast, on the order of a few days or a few weeks, but if December 5 rolls around and they haven't granted your partner's 820, the Bridging Visa A kicks in. Your partner will still be here legally, and will continue to have full work rights. The only restriction will be travel - between the time the Bridging Visa A kicks in and the 820 is granted (which really shouldn't be long) if your partner needs to travel outside Australia, they will need to get a Bridging Visa B in order to travel and return. That's it.

Incidentally, give this overview of the online application system a read-through if you didn't apply online previously. It will help you navigate the process.

I actually disagree a bit with 530i here, so I'm going to respond to this as well.

1) Do I need to print out Form 47SP, Form 40SP, Form 80, fill in the information, scan them and upload them along with my online application?
Form 80 - yes. Form 47SP and 40SP - no. You are not required to fill out these forms - the questions on both applications take the place of these forms. You're aware that with the online system, you fill out the applicant's application, submit it, get the TRN, and then do the sponsor's application, right? If not, I would REALLY REALLY suggest you read through this overview I wrote of how to navigate the online application process. http://www.australiaforum.com/565833-post6.html

Quote:
2) Stat Dec from myself and my husband, do we need to do that in a specific form or we can just write it on normal paper? Do we need to get these certified?
These aren't technically stat decs. Your own statements about your own relationship can be written on plain paper and signed by you - no need to get them certified. In fact, with the online application process, some of the free-form text box questions are actually meant to take the place of these statements. If you have so much to write that it won't fit in those text boxes, it's fine to go ahead and include your own statements anyway. Like I said though - no special paper, no need to certify.

Quote:
3) Passport size photos - do I still need to upload these since it's an online application?
Yes, but only one per person.

Quote:
4) Does the immigration department still acknowledge the application and provide a bridging visa in a few days once I hit the pay now button?

Thank you so much in advance!

Yep, absolutely. In fact, in most cases it's instantaneous.

Hey CollegeGirl!

Great to see you online, it's been a while. Hope you're doing well
Had one question regarding the partner permanent visa application- For the second stage application will my husband and I need to fill form 40SP and 47SP again?
I know we will have to send all our ID documents like we did for the first stage visa application.
Look forward to your reply, thanks a lot for your help!

Kind Regards,
Becky

No, Becky, you don't. The application for the 309 was also the application for the 100. You're not applying again (thus no application forms), you're just providing evidence your relationship is still ongoing. You can find a list of what you'll need to provide for the 801 here: http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/form...rtner-visa.pdf

Hope that helps! Good to "see" you too.

Thank you for your reply CG!
I only wanted to double check. As per the checklist, we'll have to prepare the application pretty much the same way as we prepared it for the 309 application- keeping in mind the 4 categories.
I'll ask if I have more questions We see each other virtually..lol

Many Thanks!
Becky

New online application

Hi,

I'm just starting my application today and I have a question on the first page of the online application under "relationship status."

I'm applying as de facto but I am engaged as well. My working holiday will expire before the wedding so my partner and I are going to go the de facto/relationship registration route instead of pushing the wedding date up.

On the online application I want to select "de facto" for relationship status, would my application be viewed differently if I selected "engaged?"

Cheers,
