Are YOU the next winner of a new luxury property?


Is the subclass 801 applied for 2 years after the subclass 820 Application or  the grant?

That has confused many people for quite some time.

I read the following on a Lawyers website, dated 2016.

Two years after the Subclass 820 Partner Visa was granted the Applicant and Sponsor were informed that they were eligible to apply for a Subclass 801 Permanent Partner Visa.

I disagree with that statement.

What actually happens, is that the holder of a Subclass 820 Partner Visa are normally informed that they are eligible to apply for a Subclass 801 Permanent Partner Visa, 23 months after they APPLIED for their subclass 820.  I was the sponsor, and I did not receive anything. I am assuming that it would only be sent to the Applicant.  (I also assume this page will be similar for subclass 100).

Most migration agents quote the information that the Immigration Department say, ie:

We start assessing you for the permanent visa 2 years after you lodged your visa application. You can send the documents no more than a month before the 2 years date. Do not send them before this time.

820 to 801 after 2 years from ...

The above is from:

From 22 March 2021, a lawyer can no longer register as a Migration Agent, but can give migration advice.

Some lawyers, who were registered as Migration Agents, will come under new rules from November 2021, as there is a transitional period from 22 March to November 2021.
