Hi rhodered,

Providing there are no problems with your 820/801 application, a decision should be made pretty quickly, usually (but not always) within a month or so.

The reason it's called 820/801 is because there are two visas included in the 1 application.

820 is a temporary visa with 'infinite' stay period, which means you can stay here as long as your relationship remains genuine and until such time that Immigration contacts you for the next step.
801 is when you get granted PR. That is 2 years after you are granted the 820 as above.

So in summary, you come to Australia on the 300, get married, apply for the 820/801, receive the temporary part (820) of the visa, wait 2 years and then Immigration will ask for proof that you are still in your relationship, then if you can provide that they will grant you PR. In a nutshell, if you were granted the 820 today, you would be eligible for PR (801) on 30th December 2015.

While on the 820/temporary, you are eligible for access to Medicare and to study in the domestic fee schedule. (ie. you aren't treated as an international student).

You can work and study as much as you want, but you may find it harder to get jobs if employers know you're on a temporary visa. Just keep your eye out and don't stop looking, there is work out there if you aren't too fussy!

Hi evryone my query is about getting a Tax File Number (TFN) while on Visa SC 300. Are we eligible to get a TFN? Other than it is use to open a joint account, what else are its uses.. I read the link iar.ato.gov.au and explain that to my fiance but he insisted I cannot get a TFN because Visa 300 is not a permanent residence visa. Please anyone, help me understand.

As chicken999 said you MUST get a TFN if you are going to be working. You have 28 days when you start working to get one. If you do not then your employer will withhold 46.5% of your wage .... that is alot of money!!!!

Also when you do your tax return after 30 June just remember that there is a difference between resident for tax purposes and resident for immigration purposes.

Also when you lodge your tax return after 30 June as this will be your first tax return you will be required to lodge it via paper. You can only use etax if you have lodged atleast 1 tax return previously.

Correct, when it comes to lodging your tax return you are a resident FOR tax purposes, not a foreign resident.

That's sort of incorrect. I remember when we tried to submit my wife's first tax return this year, it was all completed in eTax, but she had to print out the whole tax return and mail it to the ATO for processing. The refund was put into our bank account 2 weeks later. This coming financial year she will be able to do it all online.

So it's not entirely true that you can't use eTax, you can - but the very first one must be mailed off. There's no need to go to the newsagent and get a 'Tax Pack'. In fact I would have been a child or early teenager the last time I saw someone filling out one of those old beasts, and I'm almost 30 now

That is what I meant ... you can't use etax to LODGE it, therefore it is a paper application even though you use etax because it is printed on paper. I know someone that use the paper application cause he got so frustrated with etax that they actually filled out a tax pack! They smashed their hard drive in frustration lol.

hahaha, that is scary. I work in IT and unfortunately some people are very scared and frustrated when it comes to computers, so I can imagine the pain they would have endured.

Off topic, but it's great now how we have electronic ways to lodge our tax and complete the census these days, but they still have to keep the paper based versions for those in our community who can't figure out the electronic way to do it.

Anyway, back to the topic!
