25 May 2017 Partner visas Subclasses 820, 801, 100

The current processing times for Subclass 820, 801, 100 range between 16 – 23 months,as per information published on the DIBP website. In the context of DIBP resource constraints, high application rates, the drift towards onshore lodgements at the expense of offshore applications, and the ongoing focus on combatting fraud in the Partner Programme.
Subclass 820 Temporary Partner applications which were lodged before January 201) and are decision-ready as determined by DIBP, are being examined for potential decision by 30 June 2017.
Subclass 801 Permanent Partner applications which became eligible for grant up to April 2016 are currently being assessed, in line with the processing times advertised on the website.
The status of the 801/100 applicant’s relationship is assessed at the time of action. Partner teams will request documents at that point so health and character checks remain valid. The traditional mail-out letter at the 2-year point of eligibility will be discontinued.
A repeat character check will be requested, as appropriate, if the applicant’s period of stay in Australia exceeds 12 months.
Health examinations will not be repeated. There is no annual onshore quota for Permanent Partner visa grants. In line with current processing times a combined Subclass 820/801 application can be expected to take up to 3- 3.5 years to finalise.
