Hey Pakistani folks, just wanted to say things are happening!
Just got our golden email!
2 years on 475 completed in July 2014.
Date of 887 Application 19 August 2014
Contacted for 1221, 80 and AFP clearance on 17th November.
Submitted within a week.
887 granted today 13 Jan 2015.
Family of 3. My wife was the primary, me secondary and we have a 5 year old daughter. All of us are Pakistanis.
Now we can start planning the rest of our lives, no more putting decisions on hold.
(I was about to buy a mattress today. I'll hold off now until we move to wherever we end up!)
So yes, for those who haven't got it yet, hang in there! They seem to be processing a lot faster and yours is just around the corner, no doubt.
And thank you to everyone on this forum. Lurking on here helped keep me sane through this process!
Apparently it looks like all Bangladeshis and Pakistanis applied from June 2014 are passing through the gate. On the contrary, the applicants before June 2014 are not that fortunate and obviously caught by external security check. What a disparity!
Waoooo, congrats man.
May i know if at any stage team 13 contacted you and what date and month.
Also have you ever got mail saying referring to external agencies for health, character and national security. If so when.
Thanks for sharing timeline. And best of luck....
Now you will be relax and free
enjoy for rest of your life!
Congrats to the ones who received their grants..
Looks it getting into a bit of quiet period, have not seen any updates early other than 1 or 2 from past weeks.
guy seeing any updated on application, please do post here..
one of my Iranian friend got grant after one month and 6 days. he applied on 7th of December 2014 and got the visa on 13th of Jan 2015.
I have no idea what they are doing in immigration and whatever it is, it is not FAIR, people are waiting from 2013.
I applied in May and after 4 month CO was allocated and in September they asked about my resume.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
do you think calling immigration will help or just waste of time?
I feel i need to call and complain about situation.
Mate, you have nothing to do but wait. Better, forget about the whole 887 thing and concentrate on other stuffs that you need to do for your life. I don't believe that PR is the ultimate goal. Yes, without being PR we are facing problems in daily life and cannot plan ahead. However, it is not stopping you to perform and plan for lot of other things that is important for your life. Eventually you will be a PR today or tomorrow, just a matter of time. So, why bleeding yourself thinking about it so intensely.
By the way, I also have applied in May 2014.
