    March 2015 Visa Application 801/820

    Post by HSV068 on 03/03/15, 11:44 pm

    Well after 2 plus years we have finally done the application for Jin to remain in Australia.

    Caught up in the Government money grab, the cost $6865
    AFP clearance $42
    Postage with tracking $16

    Many things on the forms have changed, however most is the same, just re worded,
    www.immi.gov.au, you can do online, we decided to do a paper application.

    As far as Joe is concerned, as stated, he will come for a holiday at first, sometime during when Jin receives the first temporary visa extention, (820), her tourist visa expires 26th May, and applied within the time frame before that happens, so all good we hope.

    Had to ring immigration as my AFP clearance is not back yet, big delays I believe, so was told to get our application in and send it when available.

    An encouraging start. Immigration's response times have certainly improved over the years.

    Well done Roger,

    Eye wateringly expensive, but great result.
