Can't comment for on shore but know they generally run to 12 months plus on applications with time possibly increasing in more recent times.

 

It's a slow process and if you've supplied everything then all you can do now is sit and wait till you are contacted by CO if they need anything further.

 

I'm sure some others applied on shore but not sure if they are Perth based.

hi bizlarker from handing everything i got an email with in 7 days saying it was a valid application and the bridging visa was attached but not granted as i am still on a 457 visa the bridging visa will come into effect

if my 457 runs out

it just seams strange that one person tells you one thing then another tells you a totally different thing

It's more normal than you think. Happens often. You ask one person, hear one thing, another in a different department says the opposite.

 

I think it states on the partner visa page somewhere about the current processing times. I'd go out from that or whatever your CO tells you (once assigned). You could be in for a wait but once your bridging visa kicks in it's business as usual thankfully and you can carry on living life :)

Hi there. I applied for my 820/801 visa last month, I got an email to say processing times were 9-12 months. Mine's not decision ready, still need to do my medical and will wait to be asked.

 

ETA - my application is being processed in Brisbane.

The following Processing Times and Priorities for the Onshore Partner Program page on the DIBP site says:

 

"The onshore Partner visa program is experiencing strong demand, and as a result, the current average processing time for subclass 820 applications is around 13 months from lodgement. This is an average processing time and the actual processing time for each application may vary significantly."

I applied for my partner visa in August 2013. Got a confirmation email with bridging visa A within 3 days of sending the electronic application. Have been told the processing time will be 13 months. Apparently the whole process should take a maximum of two years from the date the visa application was lodged.

When you hand all your file over with everything in it eg medical report police report relationship history proof of living arrangements and you have to have printed on the file decision ready

I was told my immigration if handed in like this it is fast tracked and only takes 2 to 3 months

Hope this helps

As I said in my first thread ow as told that when I first applied and when I rang up yesterday I was told something different lol

 

Never go by what they say ;) not everyone is versed in all the different visa requirements etc. Go by the website and the process it tells you, usually safer bet.

Hi geminigirl

 

When you did the online application, was it just a case of uploading what you would normally have sent off hard copy or were you able to complete the main part of the application online (form 47SP) then just leaving you to upload certified copies of supporting evidence and other such documents such as passport/birth certificates, and the witnessed stat decs and form 40SP?

 

 

Thanks in advance

Hi BizLarker,

 

Sorry, because it seems so long ago since I submitted my application I genuinely thought I had submitted it online because I have the confirmation email from immi on my system. I had in fact sent it by registered post on Monday August 26 and got the confirmation on August 28. Sorry about that.

I spoke to immigration yesterday and this is how the partner visa works. You send in your application and they automatically put you on Bridging Visa A. The Bridging visa will be issued with the same conditions as your previous visa. This is the tricky part. The partner visa is usually a given, unless your really ill or dying etc. It usually takes 2 years from the date your application was lodged until you get your permanent partner visa which gives you permanent residency. However, the first part is receiving your bridging visa, whilst you are waiting for your temporary visa to be processed. If the temporary visa is not processed in an acceptable time, your permanent partner visa can be delayed over the teo year period. I had to ask the question because my husband has become ill and immi told me that I may be able to get my temporary partner visa fast tracked under compassionate grounds (but no guarantee). I would then be guaranteed getting my permanent partner visa at the two year mark. I was told that no adjustments can be made to get the whole thing processed quicker, the law is you have to wait at least the two years in order to get the PR.
