I've attached a snapshot of the description of 887 from the official website of immigration for your reference, where there's nowhere that mentions the visa holders have to stay in certain areas, whereas it says this visa lets you stay in Australia indefinitely. It is AUSTRALIA instead of REGIONAL AUSTRALIA!

      I hope this helps clear your confusion. Something you might need to be aware of is that the guys answering phone calls at immi are not visa officers and they just have a basic knowledge on the immigration affairs, which means their answers can be wrong where they take it for granted when speculating some issues just according to the way they are called, i.e., regional skilled visa...

      Thanks Kelvin...I hope it is this way :)

      Hi All,

      I am a silent member for sometime now.

      Sharing our good news. We got the PR on 19th October. Myself, wife and two kids.

      Was on 475 (relative sponsored) in Melbourne from 2013 July.

      Worked on ABN (independent contractor with same company for 2 years), stayed with brother for one year, so no residential proof.

      Submitted Contract and invoice copies, reference from manager and also from the finance manager of the firm.

      Got a statutory declaration from my brother for the stay with him. Applied for 887 on 19th July. Got CO allocated on 17th September. Asked for AFP again on 22nd September and form 1221 for adults.

      Reason for AFP again, myself name not matching exactly with passport. As per passport no surname only given name in the format 'Antony SecondName LastName'. While applying on AFP site, we can't give blank space in name field. I gave it in three fields for First Name, Middle Name and Surname. AFP certificate stated the name as LASTNAME, Antony SecondName. This was not acceptable to CO. So again got AFP, this time didn't give lastName/surname, instead gave first Name as Antony. Second Name as 'MiddleName LastName' so the certificate printed it matching passport. Hope this is useful to some in future.

      For wife, didn't include her maiden name in the AFP application. So did that.

      Filled form 1221 by copying from form 80 which I had already provided. I would suggest filling both as form 1221 is much smaller than form 80. Even though I feel they just asked it for the sake of asking.

      Thanks and wishing all the very best.

      regards
      Antony

      Hi

      if you already paid second VAC instalment when you applied 489 than you don't need to pay second instalment when you applied 887. you need to show them receipt of the payment which you made on 489 application.

      Thanks,
