      Sorry Guys, I should have informed you my good news yesterday ( thanks Sugarboy to do that behalf of me) , but unfortunately I was struggling to log in here because of password issue. Anyway Thank you all my well wishers, specially thank you Sugarboy. I wish from my heart to all delayed applicants to recover the Immi pain.

      May be I couldn't log in or write down here every day, but at least once a day I came here to check the update or read and learn something from you guys. I will miss this forum and you all. Good luck. If anyone wants to ask any question about my application, I will happily reply you.

      Hi mate, may be you already know about the following news, but also share this for who don't know yet.

      "The Migration Programme planning level for the Skilled Nominated category now has limited number of places left for the 2014-15 programme year. This means processing times will be longer and that once the remaining places are used, the Department cannot grant further visas in this category during this programme year.

      Processing of these applications will continue although it may still be some time (usually not before 1 July) before a final decision is made.

      Should the need arise applicants can check the Department’s website (www.immi.gov.au) for any updates regarding application processing or changes to the Skilled Migration Programme.

      Did you get this mail in regards to an 887 application? When I google after "Skilled Nominated" then I get a reference to subclass 190.
      887 is called "Skilled Regional" not nominated.

      Just a thought...

      Sorry, I posted earlier a part of the news. Here is the rest-
      "Planning levels – Points-tested visas
      The Migration Programme determines the maximum number of visas that can be granted in each visa category. Applications for this visa are processed in line with Migration Programme planning levels. These planning levels have precedence over indicative client service standard timeframes."

      As it says "each visa category" so I guess that will effect on 887 sub class as well.

      "Planning levels – Points-tested visas" - 887 visas are not point tested.
      We already went through the point test and there is a pathway for 475/478 visa holders.
      And whether we are on the old 475/489 visa, on a bridging visa or on a 887 is in my opinion no difference because we are already in the country.

      The quota makes to me only sense for new migrants which have to go through the point test.

      The process is the same, it's just another number but there is no major difference between 475 and 489.

      Hi,

      Can tell some one whether do we have to provide police reports when I will apply for 887 visa application for the countries where I lived more than 12 months prior to apply 489 visa application as well. As I have already provided these during 489 visa application and also I did not visit, once I have moved to Australia with 489 visa.

      I can understand, I have to provide the police report for Australia where I have been living until day I applied for the 887 visa, but is it really required to submit the Police reports for countries where I lived prior to apply 489 visa.
