      Hi bolo,

      I am in a similar boat as you. Did you find any answer to this question?

      Cheers,

      Hi md8008,

      I have not received answers yet to my queries. I read on another thread that somebody has been able to avail 887 visa without having completed 2 years but he didn't elaborated all the details.

      I am hoping others will give us more insights.

      Thread has been very quite. Everyone might have been very busy lately.

      Please I need your help everyone…

      As mentioned earlier, I am on 475 Visa. Approved April 2011 and activated here in SA June 2011. I was luckily employed full-time since July 2011.

      Last February 2012, my employer was willing to sponsor me for a PR visa (857 that time). Getting a PR visa sooner, the better for me and my family as a whole. We really wanted to be settled here in Australia and so I grabbed the opportunity.

      Processing of the application and sourcing out needed documents started Feb 2012. Sad to say some delays were encountered during the processing. HR in charge went for holidays, documents submitted by company to agent were incomplete, some incorrectly filled up and many other issues.

      As new policies were issued on July 1, 2012, I needed to take IELTS as my previous IELTS result used during the Skills Assessment was already expired. (Other added time and expense incurred)

      To cut the story short, FORMAL VISA LODGMENT (187 DRC) only took place Oct., 2012. Visa acknow. Received Nov. 2012. No news since then..

      Now I got questions in mind that bothers me. I am only 4 months away to satisfy the 2–year condition stay with the 475 visa so I will be qualified to apply for the 2nd stage of the visa (887) by then.
      1). If in case my 187 visa won’t still be approved until June, can I lodged a separate PR Visa 887?

      2). On the other hand, if my 187 visa got approved before June 2013, can I still apply for 887 Visa?
      It may sound weird but just to have a security for myself and to be free of conditions to my employer. In fairness No problems with employer so far. Happy with the job and pay. But nobody knows though what happens in the future.

      Please be kind to give your feedbacks.

      Hi Mari

      We are about to submit our application online (noted on website can only do it online, no more postal applications) , but I would like to know when are you given the TRN number? I was advised by the helpdesk to only pay for the application after you have been here two years and not before, so how can we upload doc's before hand? It keeps asking for a TRN number. Please advise, thank you, Rory

      Hi Rory,

      All the required details are available on their website
      http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/genera...igration.htm#b


      We started our application here and saved it. Submitted the application the day we completed 2 yrs.
      https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/visas/app/uu?form=GSMA

      Go to the below link to revisit the Form until you submit it. You will not be able to access it after you submit it and then you get 28 days to attached the supporting documents. You will not be able to attach any documents until you have submitted the application.

      https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/visas/a...N&group=travel

      Hope the above helps.

      Good luck with your visa.

      887 visa

      Hi Mari

      Thanks for the reply. The website is misleading, saying you can upload documents before lodgement, but the immigration department specifically stated the lodgement date will be the date you paid, and if you paid before your two years , your application will become void. I think I will wait until the 2 Feb, and then pay, upload and submit. This way I don't have any technical issues.

      Thanks again

      Rory

      Hi Mari,

      have you received any communication from DIAC. I have also applied for 887 on 2-1-2013. So far no response from DIAC.

      Regards,

      Tapas

      Would like to hear from you if you have recently applied for this visa or granted one.

      Thanks

      Thanks Mari for such a quick reply. Earlier I had heard that applicants used to get this visa very quickly. Moreover, as far as processing time is concerned, they mention it to be 4 weeks from the date of lodgement. Anyway, we can only wait.

      Regards,

      Tapas

      Hi,

      From memory (we applied 18 months ago online) we had to book an appoitnment for our medicals and put the reference number on the application. However we were told not to go for the medicals unless requested and they were never requested and so the appointment was cancelled.
