Default Granted an 820 visa, now what?

Hi guys, we've just had notice that our 820 visa has been granted.
​​​​​​How does that affect us and our situation.
It's the 801 we ultimately need of course. How long before that lands, any idea?

Cheers

You need to provide updated information for the 801 2 years after you originally applied for the visas. It’s not automatic, unless you were in a long term relationship and then they would have come through pretty much together.

So you're saying we have to provide more info. What is it they are after exactly. There's no mention of what they require...

Thanks

It seems rather strange that the email from immi has the visa grant attachment, but there is nothing asking us to provide any further evidence about our relationship.

Do we now have to go online and start an application for the 801....is that how it works???

Thanks

You go online and apply for the 801 2 years after your initial application. They will want to see that its still a committed relationship. Over your years on here you will have seen many posts about the 801 and the 100. Go back and look at the evidence we supplied then

Thanks Pollyanna, I just wasn't sure of the process and figured the granting of the 820 would come with a little guidance on what to do next...

I think it used to, but no longer. When I was getting visas they used to tell you when the two years was nearly up so that you could start getting the stuff together; now they don't even do that, its up to you to remember the dates!

Having gone through the 820, 801 and citizenship process over the last seven years, my best advice is not to worry about it. Just get on with your lives and, as long as you're in a committed relationship, you will have no problems getting through the next stage. As Polly says, keep an eye on the dates, take your time over the application and shoot it off when it's ready.

I found the process to be a little stressful at first but it all ran very smoothly. Just don't hold your breath - it'll happen when it happens!

Default Re: Granted an 820 visa, now what?

Thanks mate, the application for the 820 took a lot of work but we anticipate the 801 being a lot simpler.
Apparently we can apply one month before the submission date of the 820.
We'll gather things up over the next month and shoot it away as soon as we're allowed...

Regards Jeff
