  1. Hey all, Was just looking for some recent timeline info for applications submitted this year. I submitted my 820/801 April 27th 2018. Front loaded with police checks included. Was asked for medical straight away and completed 1st May 2018. Heard nothing until 12th October 2018 when asked for Aus partner's UK police check which I had coincidentally applied for just in case they wanted that too so I uploaded straight away along with new evidence over the last six months (holidays, lease, bank account statements). I just wondered if anyone has had experience of how long after they ask for more info that you tend to be granted the 820? I've heard rumblings that they're currently processing a lot of WA visas just now, a few of my friends visas in WA have came through, but I'm trying to not get too excited! Any time line comparisons would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
  2. Hello all, im planning on moving to Australia to be with my partner around early December. I haven’t applied for any visa yet however I’m unsure if it’s best to come on the working holiday visa and apply for the 801 temporary while I’m there or apply for the 801 and come on that. Has anyone apply for the 801 very early into the working holiday visa? How long would it take to process? Thanks for the help!
  3. Hi there, Obviously the immi website states that long term relationships such as my own (de facto for 3+ years at time of application submission) may be processed faster at the discretion of your CO. However I just wondered if anyone who has recently lodged their 820/801 application has actually experienced this?? In theory when my 820 goes through my 801 could go through too but I'm just wondering how likely this actually is... Cheers!

    820 to 801?

    So our 820 was just granted yesterday! Does the 801 come through 2 years after the initial partner visa application (14/6/2017) or 2 years after the 820 was granted (8/3/18)? Also, does anyone know what further paperwork is required? Thanks!!!
  5. Hi, I was wondering if you guys could help me out with figuring out how to proceed with my 801 permanent partner Visa? Any help would be hugely appreciated! It's been 3 years since I applied for my visa, and I have been requested for my partner to submit a stat dec. We've lived together for the vast majority of that time, but at the moment we are not. Will this negatively effect my visa? As i saw in the terms it states very clearly that you MUST live together at all times or something. But right now it makes more sense to take advantage of the opportunities given to us, to both help our wallets and our health. We were struggling with renting along with trying to sort out our health issues at the same time. My partner's mother eventually offered to have us move in with her so we did that. But my partner and his mum have ended up fighting all of the time which was making him really depressed, so in order for my partner to get better he moved out to his own rental nearby which is affordable but way too small for two people to live. Renting a bigger place that's nearby just isn't financially an option for us right now. My partner's mother, who I actually get along well with is now hosting me and helping me to get back on my feet and is covering things for me here like food and whatnot as I get myself sorted out. However she's stated that she's more than happy for me to stay as absolutely long as I like, so I'm taking advantage of her generosity and getting myself fully prepared to be able to go to TAFE once the visa is approved. And my partner is now much better that he's no longer having constant fights with his mother and is also able to work towards getting himself ready for working again and such also. I visit him often and drift between his place and mine, but we don't live together on a permanent basis anymore. I'm really worried now though that because now I'm not living with my partner permanently that it's going to screw up my visa. Is this going to end up being the case? Even though right now living apart makes more sense for both our wallets and our wellbeings? On the stat dec the only options as for our living arrangements are "live together, live separate on a permanent basis" but our arrangement will not be permanent. We plan on seeking a bigger rental together once we can do, but I've no idea how long away that will be yet. Once I can get Ausstudy it should help being able to afford a decent rental again. So I'm unsure what to choose or if me not living with him permanently is going to get my visa denied or something. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

    MRT/AAT

    My partner visa (820/801) was refused a couple of years ago because I was overwhelmed with the process (didn't use an agent) I didn't submit enough proof that my relationship was genuine is the short version. My hearing was in march and it was 'remitted'. From what I've read that's good news. My question to you internet strangers is - what now? DIAC have requested I redo the police/medical checks and have also requested I do the Form 80, the latter I'm slightly confused as to why. I'm confident I'm close to getting my visa after nearly four years. Have any others had their appeals' remitted and how did it play out for you?
  7. Hi Everyone, Just looking for some advice on mine and my boyfriend's situation. I previously lived in Brisbane for 3 years 2012-2015 and during this time I met my now partner as we worked together for 2 years - we were very close friends but with other people, so nothing ever more than that. Since then I returned to the UK after leaving my partner that I'd moved over with - we were sponsored on his 457 visa. I returned back in February for a holiday to see friends etc but ended up spending the whole time with my now partner, who separated from his partner last year. We decided to just see what happened when I returned at the beginning of March, but within the week we decided it was definitely something we both wanted and discussed me moving over. I have already used my working holiday visa to get there back in 2012, whilst waiting for the 457 to be processed. He has just been over for 3 weeks to visit me, meet my family and spend some time travelling around together and I am looking at going over in September and applying for the Partner Visa onshore. I understand that we won't be able to prove a defacto relationship for over 12 months as we don't have the luxury of that time, with the tourist visa only being 3 months. So we will be going down the path of registering our relationship etc, but I just wondered if anyone else had been in the same boat and could offer any advice....??? There's no doubt in either of our minds that this is what we want, we have saved the money for the visa and the extra to go through an agent, but if anyone could help or let me know their own experiences that would be amazing - or even just letting me know what I can do in preparation before moving over. Thanks in advance : )
  8. Hey guys, my partner and i are 3 weeks from lodging our subclass 820/801 defactor visa. We are wondering which is the best way to lodge it, do we go and lodge at Brisbane in person? or should we do it electronically?. Anybody who has any hints or tips on this that would be awesome?,I am also a little confused as if we lodge application in person do we have to take originals or photocopies of evidence?. thanks

Is there freedom?? My other option is to apply for a partner VISA 801 which was my preference but $7000 versus $3500 Any advice greatfully received Thanks Jodie

    820 to 801

    Hey all, Hope everyone is well and having a good start to 2015! In a couple of months I should be getting approached to start finalizing and sending back evidence to move from the 820 temp to 801 PR and have a couple of questions as below if anyone can help? 1) Can anyone confirm what documents you are asked for/send in for this part? I've heard its generally not as much as your initial application for 820, but I can’t really find a straight list anywhere. Has anyone done this recently? 2) As it was an application onshore, for the 820 part I had to remain in the country whilst processing and until it was granted – is that the same when the 801 stage is going through? Or would I be able to leave the country as I have 820? Thanks everyone, any help much appreciated!

    Do I need a resident return visa?

    G'day! So I've just booked some flights home to the UK. It's the first time I'm leaving the country since I've had my de-facto PR 801 approved (yay!) and I'm a bit confused about this resident return visa thing... Previously (e.g. when I was on the temporary stage of the defacto 820 visa), I've left and re-entered Australia without issue. It's all electronic and I've never had an issue. I've booked this trip home pretty spontaneously though and I'm heading away in a few weeks so I'm a bit concerned if I need to apply for the RRV. Am I correct in thinking that the RRV is only for permanent residents who've been living away from Aus for an extended period? Or is it for all permanent residents who want to re-enter the country? Thanks in advance for any help!
  12. Hi all, I'm looking for some advice as I finalise my 820/801 Partner Visa application. I'm currently on a 457 visa and have entered my 3rd year with 20 months remaining. (Thus I need to get my finger out and get this applied for...) My wife is Australian and have lived together for over 3 years so I meet all the defacto requirements. I started collating information 12 months ago however it's been on the backburner and I just wanted to check there was no changes/developments I need to be aware of that could impact my application. 1 - I'm reading conflicting reports on here re: medical. Some people suggest not getting medical upfront and waiting until asked. Others say you must get it in advance. Can anyone help with this? 2 - What medical do I need to apply for? I cannot find the specific name of the medical in my visa application forms - again, any help is appreciated! 3 - Does the fact that I've got a child on the way help in any way with my application? (In terms of advancing me up the queue, prioritising me, qualifying me for an alternative visa?) Thanks in advance guys!

  14. Hey I have been living in Australia for the past 2 and half years, and had decided to lodge for a visa 187 sponsored rural visa as am currently working and living in Ingham. I tried to seek as much help through immigration when applying for this visa and thought I had all the requirements to apply for this visa when lodged. However it has turned out that I did not meet the skills assessment due to me incorrectly stating while lodging the application that I did not need a skills assessment when I did. When asking immigration about this I thought I only had to supply references and evidence of working In my nominated occupation of 3 years prior to lodging the application. Since this has been lodged I have been notified that as I did not have a skills assessment done, I have not met required criteria for this visa and this will not be granted. This leaves me $3,500 down and no visa ! I now need too look at applying for another visa before this is withdrawn and and official non-grant letter is sent. I have been in a de-facto relationship for 12 months however do not have a joint bank account or even though living together no evidence of bills as this is accommodation supplied though my current job. What other evidence can I give and will that be enough evidence for them to grant this visa? Someone please helllppppppp! Thanks
  15. I have a question regarding the 12 month relationship requirement in a situation where the couple have a relationship registered with the state of NSW. Quick run down of our situation: My details: British Born Migrated to Australia 2008 Citizen of Australia since 2012 My Partners Details: European 457 Visa Lived in Australia since 2005 Pending application for 175 skilled independent visa, pending for 5 years We met in July 2012, and formed an exclusive relationship in August 2012. We have not been apart since that time and stayed at each others homes every night until December. We moved in together at one property in December, and formalised this on the lease once my partners lease had expired (we were subletting in the meantime to avoid termination fees). In the time we have been together, we have met each others families (travelling to Europe to do so), have formed friendships with each others social group and have travelled together to Dubai, London, Warsaw, New Zealand (twice) as well as various domestic trips. We have also planned overseas holidays for next year. We have also registered our relationship under the Relationship Registration Act 2010 (NSW) That leaves us in the following situation: In a mutually exclusive relationship for 13 months Close family and friend ties Lived together (across both homes) for 12 months (hard to evidence though) Shared home lease for 6 months (easy to evidence) Multiple travel together over 8 months Planned future travel together taking us to 21 months Registered Relationship (Currently cooling off for 28 days as per NSW legislation) We can provide the following: Joint bank account statement Joint Lease Superannuation beneficiary given to each other Life Insurance policy naming partner as beneficiary Travel itineraries and forward bookings Photographs (with friends, travelling, with each others family) Christmas and Easter cards Relationship Registration Certificate (NSW) Stat Dec from a friend who was with us the night we met Stat Dec from a friend we stayed with in Dubai Stat Dec from family member Stat Dec from close friend we socialise with regularly Do you think we have covered enough to satisfy immigrations relationship requirement? My only real worry is that we didn't really think to write all of our movements down in the early months (who would?! It's not like immigration is the first thing on your mind). I really wanted to get the application in before 1 Sept as the fees are going up, but we won't have the Relationship Registration Certificate until about 5 Sept. As usual! I appreciate any tips, hints or insights you might have. all I can say is this... visas were a lot easier and cheaper when I migrated here! Nobody can argue that the government aren't trying to make it as hard as possible.

    801/820 Partner Visa Statements

    Sorry if this topic has been done to death, however, if you'll permit me a quickie... Is it ok to provide your statements as a typed, printed document (then sign and date, and get each page witnessed). To my mind this would neither be a "on ordinary writing paper or a statutory declaration form" but I'm guessing that most people do it this way. Regards, Neil
  17. Hi guys, I've got a question regarding a question on this application form: Question 55 - What is your current relationship with your sponsor? Married, de facto or engaged. Now, I am applying for a de facto partner visa and (having lived together for 18 months) should I state we are de facto from when we lived together? We are also engaged - does this 'trump' de facto? Do I tick both de facto and engaged? Cheers all for any help you can provide.
  18. so i applied for my 820 partner visa on the 31st October in Brisbane in person and I was wondering if anyone else had lodged their application there in person recently too? If so how was your experience? I front loaded my application so hopefully it gets dealt with quicker? Also wanted to know how long it took for your application to get acknowledged? Since my working holiday visa expires the 25th of this month, Im hoping my bridging visa will be done by then and I know it wont until the application has been ackowledged? Also, for people wanting to apply in Brisbane in person in the future, make an appointment! I didnt realise you could because it didnt say anything about it on the immigration website and when i got there i was told i was supposed to have made an appointment, but fortunatly it was pretty much empty so they could just see me straight away...
  19. Hello! This is my first post on this forum but it has been a great help in the past, thankyou all. My partner and I have an 820 temporary partner visa, granted in April last year. My partner is an Australian Resident and sponsored me. Sadly one of my parents was taken critically ill so I flew back to the UK to be with my family through the end of life process and he died towards the end of last year. In order to provide emotional and financial support I remained in the UK until this month and have now returned to Oz. I am now really worried that this will count against us when our case is examined to upgrade my visa to a permanent residency. In the heat of everything happening back in the UK I didn't ever contact Immgration to inform them I was back in the UK. I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the situation? Also, I can't find any information on the checklist that we must be complete when approaching the date for our decision. Can anyone help? Thankyou so much all in advance.
  20. Hi. I have a couple of questions please and would appreciate any advice from anyone with experience in this area. I came to OZ on a Tourist Visa, subclass 676 to visit my fiancé to see Australia and decide if this is where we wanted to live. My 676 Visa was granted for 12 months and expires at the end of February 2013. We were married in May have decided to stay here so I need to apply for a Temporary and Permanent Visa for myself, as my husband is an Australian citizen. My question is, should we apply for the Visa while I'm in Australia or should I travel back to the United States of America and apply from there? My fear is that if I apply for it while I'm in OZ, it won't get approved before my tourist Visa runs out. I've tried to find answers as to timelines on approvals but what I've read seems very confusing. Seems there are many different situations and so many different experiences on the time it has taken others. Some recommend that I go back to the USA and apply from there as the wait time could be shortened??? Also, since the information I've read indicates you must stay in the country where you apply until you receive the approval, being in the USA would not cause me worry on it not getting approved in a limited amount of time. Applying in Australia would create a window of time it would have to be approved, since my Visa expires in February 2012. Unless there is something I'm not understanding correctly? Any comments or advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
  21. Hey Guys! Returning to the forums months after my partner was granted a 457 sponsorship visa, unfortunately not with celebrations but with more questions... We are in a situation where her current boss is being a real arsehole, taking her for a real ride in regards to pay and overload of work. Enough is enough and we are looking for alternatives, we have limited knowledge about these visas (we have read all the government websites but there is always the little writing!) Our current situation: We have been living in a de facto relationship for now over 12 months. Have joint bank accounts and share our finances. My partner has been on 457 visa since April last year. She is enrolled with Medicare. She previously was on a WHV (417) before the sponsorship. I'm aware of all the responsibilities and we are very much in love and can see a long future there. We would like to know: Considering the above, would we be eligible to apply for this visa? She wants to quit her current job ASAP - the gap visa (is that right?) that will be assigned to her, will she be allowed to work during that period? How long does the de facto process take? Is there anything we should be aware of? Other than that, is there any other (legal) options we could go down? Thanks for your help guys, any responses will be greatly appreciated. :biggrin:
  22. I currently recieved my 801 visa application , to be honest its a about a month late. They sent it to a sorting office near my house but the opening times did not suit as worked early hours. I then got in transfered and it took about 7 days, so eventually its here. I have emailed them explaining I have like 30 days to get the police check and forms filled in A little background I am from the UK been in Perth for nearly 4 years now on WHV and 820, girfriend aussie citizin of course. On the checklist it says Police check for Applicant , Dependent and Sponsor I have no children but was wondering does my girlfriend need a police check as last time we didnt need one for her ??? Also on the form it says a certified copy of personal details page , what does this mean ? Is it a copy of your passport with your address and signature on it ... as there is no forms for personal details. Help would be much appreciated. Thanks All James
  23. Hi, I'm in a very difficult position. I have an 820 partner visa and a couple of months ago I returned to the UK to get surgeries that I need (one reason was to spare Medicare the expense and to not jeopardize the visa) and am now trapped here on a waiting list unable to walk. I have received an email from DIAC allowing me 60 days to submit the documentation for my 801 visa but doing this from a position of being house-bound the UK is going to be very difficult if even possible. I have explained to DIAC my position but it seems as if they didn't understand or care. My partner in OZ has no printer, we live in a remote community, he is also ill and so on (we are in our 60s), so it's really up to me to organize this. I want to know what happens if I cannot get all the evidence to them within 60 days. Does anybody know or have experience of this? Alexandra
  24. Hi All I've been a reader of these forums for a while now and the time has come for me to get really serious about our application. I'm an Aussie, but my partner is from the UK. He is currently with me in Oz on a working holiday visa, we have been together for 3 years and prior to us moving here in Oct 2010, lived together in UK for almost a year. We're at the point where we have everything almost ready to go, but I just had a few questions before we go further: Currently we have - form 80, form 40SP, form 47SP, our statements, certified copies of id documents, passport photos supporting docs (bank, lease, photos, invites, emails) and many stat decs (form 888) from friends and family. Do we need to have his police checks and/or medical (form 26 & 160) to send with the initial submission? or will they request these once they have recieved the application? Is there anything else we have missed? Any advice or suggestions will be very helpful!
  25. Good Morning PPL :-D I am in the final stages of getting my defacto visa 820 finalised so I will become a temporary resident. I applied for this in July 2011. So from what I can gather in July 2013 I will move onto the defacto visa 801 if i am still in the de facto relationship. My question is once I hit July 2013 how quickly does the visa 801 get granted? Will I have to wait another 9 months or whatever like I have done for my 820 visa or is it a matter of weeks? Many Thanks for any help.:em3600:
