Applying in person for partner visa 820/801 - how does it work?

Hi

Can someone tell me how it is with applying in person?

I am about to apply for 820/801 visa (Sydney office). I called Immi to arrange for an appointment and they told me there is no appointments - I just come anytime to lodge my application.

BUT when I went through Visa time line thread I saw a few posts stating that there was an interview at the day of application or that they visa was granted on the spot (eg. post number 66, 101, 172, 218 )

So how does it work???

Thanks
magda

It used to be possible within Australia that you could book an appointment and maybe get an interview at time of lodging and that may still happen in some overseas countries but it is no longer possible.
You just take your application in and lodge it if that is what you want to do instead of posting.

Hi Magda,
I applied in Sydney in April. We just went in to the office and waited and eventually got to see someone to hand in the application and pay. It was useful as he quickly looked through the application and made sure nothing really obvious was missing so this saved some time I suppose.

I've got an appointment to lodge my visa and have an interview with the case officer in Perth on Friday so maybe some offices are still doing it.

There have ben the odd references to some offices doing their own thing and it does make something of a mockery of standard processing that is supposed to apply.
