Waiting for 801

Hello everyone I am a first time poster.
I am wondering if there's anyone else in my situation
I was eligible to apply for my 2nd stage partner visa 801 in April 2016 but due to a complicated pregnancy and having my first baby in may it delayed my application and I applied in July 2016 does anyone know is it a 16-20 month delay with processing from application or eligibility. I really hope my visa is granted soon as my contract in work is due for renewal in two months and within my work it costs a lot of money for the training required to keep me there and without permanent residency I'm not sure they will see me as an investment and more of a risk. Very stressed and counting the days

I believe the processing time is from the time of eligibility. The Department of Border Protection has released Visa application processing times - Global visa and citizenship processing times. For partner visa 801 75% of applications are processed in 16 months and 90% processed in 20 months. You can also read through the thread "2nd stage partner processing visa" - http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...-visa-254.html

Processing times are generally from the time of application, but for the second stage visas (801 and 100) they are from eligibility date. 16 months and 20 months are from eligibility date. I would direct Waiting to the 801 thread but it looks like they've already found it.

Hi CollegeGirl,

I have sub 309 and my eligibility date for sub 100 is 20th of May (1 month left). Applied online.
I have checked on immi website processing times are from 13 -22 months now.
Should I expect any contact from immigration anytime soon?
I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

Just to share our speedy experience.
Surprisingly, being from Croatia a high risk country on the list, our entire 309 has just been granted yesterday within FOUR months!
So if you have all the paperwork and put in the effort to organize it, with some luck it seems it really can be speedy!

Hi everyone -

I'm American, my wife is Australian. We have been married for 7 years and lived here in the US that whole time. I applied for a 309 visa last year, submitted all my documents, did medical and background checks, and my wife completed the sponsorship application. The Immi site lists my lodgment date as Oct. 28 2016. Back at that time the average processing time for "low-risk" countries was stated as 5 months, so I've been expecting to hear something any time now. Haven't been assigned a CO yet or anything. But today I've gone to check the processing time estimates, and for a 309 they have jumped to 11 months for 75% of applicants and 16 months for 90%. Yikes! There's also no longer a distinction between high and low risk countries.

We were planning to move at the end of 2017, and although we haven't made any firm commitments toward that (hired movers, quit our jobs, etc.), it sounds like that timeline is at risk now. If I didn't get the visa until this October, it would be a scramble to arrange everything else by year end.

I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the jump in processing times, or recent similar experience they can share. Thanks!

Those times quoted are the Global visa processing times. Hopefully some will be done in the earlier part of each time frame.

Hi Autojack,
We are in the exact same boat. Im aussie but the wife is American. We applied at the end of Oct 2016 thinking it would be 6 months tops to get the visa. We still plan on leaving in a few months but are getting nervous if it ends up taking more than 12 the mrs will have to enter as a tourist (unable to work) and then leave the country when she is eventually granted. Not a great situation all round
