Facts &Tips for Partner Visa 820/801 Online Applications

I have been hearing of Migration Agents preferring to still submit paper applications on behalf of their clients as the online system contains glitches.

I have used the online system for application of 820/801 on the third day it was made available.

Here are some useful tips if things seem to be going wrong:

1. When you write your statements in the boxes about the history of the relationship, nature of the household etc. do not copy and paste from a Word Document. Although copying from Word is easier, you are bound to come across some problems. For example, the apostrophe from Word will not be accepted in the Immi online system. You can Copy and Paste, then go through the box to check for punctuation that the ImmiAccount does not accept and edit them.

2. Note that the boxes only accept 2000 characters! This is not much at all to tell the history of your relationship. However, you can always attach it at the end.

3. You will need to submit the 820 application and pay before you will be asked to attach documents.

4. You will need to submit the 820 application and pay before you will be able to continue further with the Sponsor form.

5. There are extra questions that perhaps you were not ready to answer that are not in the paper forms. For example, the date of marriage of your parents and all your married siblings.

6. Just a tip, fill out the paper form, print it, and use it as a reference when doing the online application.

7. You cannot continue with the next question and come back to a question later. You can save and exit at the question you cannot fill, but not go further unless it is filled. However, for example, you can fill in a fake parents date of marriage and go on to the next few questions and come back to it once you know the answer, but I don't recommend it. People forget.

8. Fact: You will receive your acknowledgement letter and bridging visa letter via email once you hit the 'Pay Now' button. Your receipt will also be generated.


Any other facts and tips, add them here.

Hi Amandy,

Just wondering after the payment section do they ask for specific documents to be uploaded in different sections? Or is it just a case of uploading all your evidence in the one go?

Thanks,

Hi Sydneygal,

There will be a list of "Evidence of" headings that say "Recommended" and "Attach Document" next to them. There's about 20 headings.

There will be two sets of these 20 or so headings, one for the applicant and one for the sponsor.

Be very very careful because once you've uploaded the document, you cannot delete it.

Great thread Amandy!

My partner and I are in the process of getting all our evidence for our application.

Just a question about the statutory declaration as I'm living in The Netherlands, will my family fill in the form back in australia, have it signed by a JP, scan the forms then email it to me and I just simply upload it?

Thanks in advance

Hi Fongo,

Yes precisely, you have the right idea. There's a section at the end to add the form 888.

One thing I'd like to add is within the online form for the applicant, it asks for two witnesses, their names, date of birth, phone number, occupation, how you know them, address and email address.
Personally, I added about 7 witnesses details in that section, but didn't upload any form 888s. I'm experimenting to see if the new online form section about witnesses will suffice or they still need the form 888 despite having to give details about some witnesses.
I wouldn't recommend anyone else skip the uploading of the form 888.

Hi Amandy, I'm wondering how long do you have to wait for the completed eMedical examination results that your panel clinic submitted to immigration. I had my health check done last Friday, but till now they still didn't submit mine to immigration yet.

It should be electronically submitted to immigration as soon as the results come through, not more than a few days. Did you submit a HAP ID with your application?

I haven't lodged my application just yet as I would like to wait for the panel clinic to submit my health examination results to immigration first. Thank you for your replied
