    820 and beyond

    Thanks very much Quinkla. Out of curiousity, are you aware of any restrictions regarding how long I HAVE to be in Australia for? It's just that we will be travelling a lot for work and we might be out of Australia more than we're in it for the two year period!

    820 and beyond

    Hi all, I'm currently on an 820 visa and will hopefully be going onto the 801 next year (2015). The DIBP website says that I'll be contacted a few weeks before the two year anniversary of my application to request further information to enable the processing of the 801, however I cannot find out anywhere what information they would request. Is there anyone who can say what info they require at that stage? Many thanks

    HAP ID's!!!

    Hi everyone, A massive thanks to everyone who has helped us so far! I received my subclass 300 visa a while ago and am now happily married to my lovely wife. We're now going through the next steps and have been told we need an HAP number before we can request a medical, however we cannot see where we might get this on the immi site. Can anyone shed any light on this at all? Also, does anyone know if I definitely need to be in the country for when the spouse visa is granted? We're going travelling for a bit next year and it'd be a bit of a pain to have to return, but obviously worth it overall! Many thanks Steve
  5. Littlekitty, from your post I assume your partner is British as you submitted via London? Also, I see your partner submitted medicals and police checks when requested and not with the original submission on 3rd September. Is that all correct? I am curious as we are about to submit my application and are wondering if we should be bracing ourselves for an 8-9 month wait too! We will be submitting with medicals and police checks all completed, so I am hoping it may reduce it, but expecting we are more likely to be in the queue behind you.
  6. I have read a lot of posts about how to certify, but seeking advice on whether copies of cards sent to each other or to both of us need to be certified? Are these considered a document? We have certified our bills, identity documents etc... but are unclear about whether we need the JP to certify copies of engagement cards, birthday cards and letters to us. Also, emails can't really be certified right? As they are printed from a computer? Anyone submitted and successful that can comment here?
