820 Visa Update: Request for More Information

29 Nov

 

Hey everyone! Just thought I’d post a quick update. A few days ago I received an e-mail from immigration requesting the information I hadn’t yet supplied (Australian police check, US police check, and medicals). For reference, it has been about eight months since we lodged our application for our 820 Partner Visa in Brisbane.

This request did not come from a case officer, but from the admin team. I asked around on a few forums and it looks like this could just be an automated thing rather than an indication that the application is on its way to being approved. Regardless, I was happy to hear something. This was my first communication with immigration since I received my acknowledgement letter.

That said, I’m now a little stressed out. The e-mail said that they need the information in 28 days from receipt of the e-mail (“or your application might be decided upon without the information”), which means I’ve got about 26 days to get my medicals done (shouldn’t be a problem) AND hope that my FBI check actually shows up. I was watching for the mail man like a little kid watches for an ice cream truck this past week. If it doesn’t arrive on Monday, I’m going to call–it’s been just over two weeks since the money left my account and I’m getting nervous that it’s been lost in the mail.
 
That said, I AM able to e-mail immigration if it’s impossible for me to get everything in on time, but I don’t want to do that–I want to get this sorted! It would be amazing if I could have my visa by Christmas. What a fantastic present that would be.

How is your visa journey going? Let me know in the comments below! If you’d like more information on how my visa has been going, follow these links.

    I’m intend to apply Partner Visa Onshore (820/801), and I’m trying to arranged all required documents in advance. Once I filled in the Form 80 which noted that it required the employment background and education background. I wonder do I need to get any supporting document proof?

      Hi Cat! I didn’t supply any supporting documents with the Form 80. I suppose it’s entirely possible that they could ask for supporting documents later, but with the initial application it is not required to provide them. 🙂

      Hope that helps!
