      Hi there
      I am new in this forum and being following it for a couple of weeks now. To everyone, thank for the information provided, it has been really useful.
      I am a dependent applicant and my wife applied for the visa on 12/07/2013. No news, updates or changes in my case.
      Anyway, good luck to everyone and wait for the good news.
      Cheers

      • Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central Coast in New South Wales
      • Brisbane and the Gold Coast in Queensland
      • Perth in Western Australia
      • Melbourne in Victoria
      • the Australian Capital Territory.

      Therefore, living/working/studying outside regional area would be a breach of the condition and it could affect to your visa application if DIBP finds it.

      Cheers,

      Right and if you want to make move in regional area only then you need to submit "Change in Circumstances" form 1022 to immi.

      kindly suggest.thanks.

      I am also in same situation and I had been suggested by my immi agent that we have to stay in regional area till the new visa grant and our 487 visa include only to work in regional area so we can't work legally in cities untill you got 887.

      Thanks
      Yeah so at the end of Form 1276 there is a part for you to fill out payment method and your credit card or eftpos card details. If you go to Immi website there is calculator for you to estimate how much you have to pay. Look for 887 visa and you will the calculator under one of the tabs. If the amount is not enough they will contact you and let you know.

      Hi there
      For those of you who are little bit curious about the date your application might be granted. I have developed a statistical tool, using data provided in this forum, to forecast your likelihood of your approval date. Please note this is only an estimation made by me, not the true granted date. I only have used a small set of data (42 observations) and the model only is able to explain 64.42% of the data (64.42% of accuracy) and has a standard deviation of 11.21 (i.e. this means that numbers of days could lower or higher in 11.21 days) which is stated in the spreed-sheet.
      Hope it will be useful
      Here the link http://goo.gl/8Apurd
      Cheers
      P.D. As time goes, according to the data provided, the number of days for visa approval decrease. Hence, the model considers this situation. Now the model does not collapse.
      I apologise for a mistake in the spreed-sheet to those who have already used. I did not considered 2 Standard deviation when calculating likelihood. File is updated now.
      You will realise that likelihood is high, this is because standard deviation is also high. I have amended the file several times since it requires lot of work.
      Considering the people who have been messing up with the file I had to lock it on. Sorry about that but I do not really want to amend the file every 10 minutes.
      Hope you can understand.

      Do 489/487/475 visa holders need to live in their sponsoring region?

      Different from the 190 visa, a 489/487/475 visa does have conditions attached specifying where the visa holder must live, work and study. Generally speaking, if your 489/487 visa is granted due to state/territory nomination, condition 8539 must be imposed. If your 489/487 visa is granted due to relative sponsorship, condition 8549 must be imposed.

      A person whose visa is subject to condition 8539 is obligated to live, work and study only in an area specified as a regional or low-population growth metropolitan area of Australia.A person whose visa is subject to condition 8549 is obliged to live, work and study only in an area specified as a designated area of Australia.

      Condition 8539 and 8549 only requires the visa holder to live in A regional or designated area as specified in the relevant legislative instruments, but not THE regional or designated area where you obtained the nomination or where your sponsor lives. Simply, you are free to move to any regional area or any designated area as long as the postcode relates to one of these appropriate lists.

      Similarly, to satisfy the ' 2 years residence and 1 year full-time work in a specified regional area' criteria for an 887 Skilled - Regional Permanent visa, a 489/487/475 visa holder can live and work in multiple regional or designated areas for an accumulated period of time that meets the 887 visa requirement.

      Although not specified in legislations, it is the Immigration Department's policy that persons granted a 489/487 visa who are in Australia and have not been living in a specified regional area, are expected to make appropriate arrangements to relocate to a specified regional area in two to three months.

      For those who are granted a 489/487 visa outside of Australia, they are expected to make arrangements to establish living arrangements in a specified area within a month of arrival as they are considered to have more opportunity to make arrangements between being granted their visa and arriving in Australia.

      Because of the imposed condition 8539/8549, if 489/487/475 visa holders fail to settle in a specified area within a reasonable period of time from visa grant, their 489/487 visas may be subject to cancellation under the general cancellation power, section 116, on the ground of non-compliance with visa condition.

      For those people who may continue to work or reside in a non-regional area such as Sydney after the grace period to move has expired, it is more than likely the DIBP will cancel your visa if they find out.

      It would only take a simple site visit by DIBP officers to your work place, or being pulled over by the police for a traffic offence to discover that you are in breach of your visa condition.

      CES, I am very impressed with your statistical calculation. I believe you are right about the latest date I will get my PR granted if they do not decide to go on leave before my daughter comes back.

      Hi violetrose
      Hopefully your PR will be granted soon, that is something I could not include in my calculation. Number of days immi will take off for Holidays.
      Anyway, best wishes for you.
