Request consideration for 801 visa straight away.


We are about to submit the 820/801 visa application in the next few weeks and I'm looking for a bit of advice about being considered for the 801 visa straight away.

We have been together since 2010, in a defacto relationship since January 2011 and also have a son together.

How exactly do we request this? Is it just a letter that I upload with the evidence and if so, is there something specific that we write?

Thanks for the help.

I'd include a cover letter advising you have submitted your application and supporting documents for your 820/801 visa. I'd also say that since you have provided evidence of a de facto relationship since January 2011 and that you have a son, you respectfully request they consider granting you an 801 visa.

It's highly likely they would since you meet the criteria, but it can't hurt to (politely) ask them to do that in case they missed the fact.

Thank you for that. I thought it would be something along those lines, but I just wanted to check and make sure.

Definitely include a cover letter requesting it but make sure you have solid evidence dating back the whole time. I had a case where I knew I had evidence aupporting PR straight away but they still gave me TR. when they called to tell me I had TR I asked why I didn't get PR and the lady realised they had overlooked it and in the end gave me PR. So even if you know for sure that you are eligible make sure you pursue it after if you don't get PR as even though I sent a cover letter asking for them to consider 801 it seemed they didn't even think about it until I verbally asked!
