      Hi all, I'm new here.

      Lodged application of 887 on 4/3/2013 and still waiting to be allocated.
      The status online still showing the date of allocation is 5 Jan and I reckon that the process of this category ceased somehow at the moment and last time I called the immi office a guy said you prolly have to wait till June to get it moving, as is suggested by Rajne previously.

      Keep updated everyone and fingers crossed >_<

      Hi SRAZ,

      Thanks for the reply. It was a very stressful experience just to find out why my online application would not go through. I sat at the DIAC office for 4 hours only to be given a phone number to call and nobody answered the phone for almost 45 minutes and I gave up. Then I went to Level 4 to the courier / mail window counter, 2 ladies there were extremely helpful and told me exactly what to do, I was saved the 2 weeks experience that you had. I think the best way is to write an e-mail to Skill Select Support, which I did and they replied 3 days later but I already had all the answers I wanted. Well anyway my paper application was lodged the next day and I got the acknowledgement and bridging visa. I am in a unique situation, if they are not going to process it within the next 2 weeks then I would rather they take 6 months because my daughter can only return in December. My application is all in order, I have all police clearances done, my daughter's medicals were done last year for the 489 and is still valid and all the requirements attached, so really it is just a matter of ticking the boxes but looks like from the experience of everyone here, it is now a waiting game and it ain't going to happen within the next 2 weeks. I hope you get your visas soon SRAZ.

      Even if they speed things up from June onwards, there is just a lot of backlog for them to clear, so it looks like it is going to take time.

      Trust me..you can never predict how long immi will take...i waited 3+ years for 475...thaought guideline was 8months :(

      and as per guideline they should finalise 887 in 6 months...no point of getting worried cause its out of your control and you really are helpless...

      i applied in Dec and still no answer...and one guy in thread apply in jan and he got it in May...so all luck :)

      According to MOODY's case, i would say after being allocated the chance of getting granted within 2 or 3 weeks is big, but it really depends on the officer.

      If i got any updates on anyone getting allocated after 5 Jan, will let ya know

      Rumours starting to surface that the delay is because of the current wave of migrants coming here by Boat which is pulling all DIAC resources so they have now all but stopped prcessing of most conventional immigration visas including 887. This is VERY frustrating!

      Hello ricky hope 1

      i think bank statement is OK for proof of address residential. I used my school letter and phone bill as my proof of address. As long as in letter have your address, that should be fine.

      ​cheers

      Refugees have been arriving to Aus for more then a decade .. this has never stopped immi from processing Visas.. I dont believe that this is the cause of the delay...
      Certain Sub classes may have been stopped because ... Immi has started processing Catagory 5 Applications last yr about Sep 2012 and they are trying to clear most of the backlogs .. Some application are from june 2009

      Seach in Google "Catogory 5 processing " You will see people are getting their visas now .. And quite fast too..

      My prediction is ... They might start processing 887 visa's in the month of July cos July is the start of the financial yr and usually they concentrate on other visas i.e 887 and so ... !!
