  1. Hi All, I recently received a general advice letter regarding my partner visa 801/820. I am currently on a bridging visa A. It has been 1 year since my visa has been lodged. The letter received explained that I need to book a medical (which I already did and passed) and upload any new bits of information soon as possible. Is anyone able to tell me from when they received there general advice letter how long after it took for there visa to come through. Thanks for any advice
  2. Hi, I got a CO assigned around 14 months since I applied. My 820 was granted a few months after, around 17 months since I summited the application. Hope that helps.
  3. @Vikie90 I think just the medical and further evidence if needed. Good luck for the medical. When did you lodge your application?
  4. Hey @XKS, Thanks for your comment. Mine is also still in “received” and had a name position number at the end which I also assumed was the case officer. When did you apply for the visa? When did you 1st take your medical. I did mine about 8 months after applying. Cheers
  5. @paulhand thank you for responding, I do appreciate the advice. What does RDI stand for? I know it’s difficult to say, but it it likely the PR 801 will come through or just the 820?
  6. @ali yes it is, it was done around 2 months ago.
  7. Hello All, I was wondering if anyone had any personal experience in how long there temp 820 visa took to come through after there medical. I am currently on a bridging visa A, and have my medical booked for September. By time I do my medical my partner visa would of been lodged for 14 months onshore. Does anyone know how long the temp 820 will take to come through after the medical? (if everything goes well am I pass) Any advice would be great. I understand everyone is case by case
  8. Hello All, Wanting some advise on the partner visa medical check. I applied for the partner 820 visa onshore around 1 year ago and have since been on the bridging visa A. I planned on doing the medical however COVID happened so never booked it in. Now you are able to book visa medical check, when would you advise to do this? As they only stay valid for 12 months? Thanks All :)

  15. Hello everyone I’m a little confused after reading some posts. Very shortly me and my partner are about to apply for the visa 820/810 partner visa.

What is this and does anything have more information. Can anyone state the step by steps for the partner visa? thanks everyone

    awesome, thanks for the feed back. I plan on applying in a few weeks with hopefully a 10day turn around from the website. Fingers crossed. what website did you use? gov.uk?
  21. Hello Can i have a little guidance, is the bridging visa A (010) the one you go on when you apply for the spouse visa (820) while it is processed. why is it I can't find the working rights labelled on the gov website? see below I've been informed with different information about my working right from the Working holiday to a bridging visa when I log the spouse visa (820). From I can work longer the 6 mouths to I have to apply for an extended work rights? HELPPPPP Thanks
  22. Hello all, can you please help me out. I am currently in Australia on the WHV. Fairly soon me and my partner want to apply for the spouse visa. Having done lots of research I’m still a little lost and need some help clearing things up. When I apply for the 801 temporary visa (spouse visa) after my working visa ends in December will I go onto the 801 or a bridging visa? Also after my WHV ends In December and the application has been sent for the spouse visa. What will be my working rights? Will I be able to apply for full time work under the spouse visa? And in that time while I am waiting am I able to leave Australia? If you have any information please help me out cheers :)
  23. Hey! Do you know if you can work longer then 6months on a bridging visa A. On the working holiday visa at the moment, applying for the spouse visa very soon but just need help knowing if I can work longer then 6months or not on the BVA
  24. Hi everyone thanks for all you advice. So me and my partner have been together 2 years. I came on the WHV as it was the quickest way for me to come over, so I’m not worried about the evidence and all that. I came to Australia in December and my visa run out then for the WHV. We plan on applying for the spouse in June/July just the last bit we are saving for. I think that gives me enough time to summit and be processed. Can I just clarify, at the moment the WHV only allows me to work up to 6mouths in one place. When I apply for the spouse visa and the WHV ends. Will I have the work rights to work over a 6mouth period and full time rights. Thank you all for your help, it’s been a great help
