    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hello everyone! Does this mean we cannot access child care subsidy too when PR is granted?

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hey all, I just went through the tracker and found that if in your first correspondence the CO doesn't ask for more work & residency documents it usually means you're already safe. Even if you get a second or third request, they won't be about work & residency documents. And subclass 887 is mainly about meeting the work and residency requirements. So that's good news to some of you i guess.

    This is true information. I went to medicare office few weeks back and when I inquired about FTB they said the same thing.

    I'm from August 18. Same here. My graph shows the number of grants per month. It does not show or look at the application dates.

    Hi @Delfin, @Dee, yes, it was exactly my case. I updated my AFP with all my former names and everything and a couple of months later I got a request for a new AFP! I got so mad, having already waited for 19 months! It was hard but I got them to see that it was their mistake. I called twice and asked them to check if they see the earlier uploaded AFP (it was CO Sophorn actually, who asked for the new one - so she may need to go to Specsavers ). It was all very dodgy, when I called they kept putting me on hold and eventually after almost 1 hour on the phone they said they could not see my previous uploaded AFP. Then I lodged a complaint and explained that my AFP is up to date and on the system. Then I called again. And complained again. I the end, they "found" my AFP and granted me visa. So definitely start with a phone call. Ask them to check your updated AFP on the system. Then put a complaint in, if you have no joy with the call.

    I should remake this graph, but I haven't got the time now sorry. All I can say is that we did had 19 grants (from our tracker!) in July and up to today we had 17 already. August hasn't finished yet so hopefully we can jump over 20 in the next week so that my earlier statement of "6 months increase and then a drop in grants to start increasing in numbers again for 6 months" still stands. Which then means that September will be better again. Fingers crossed.

    My agent receives a heaps of 489 invitations. Looks like majority of COs now are working on 489 and 491. Just wonder would they - those potential new 491 applicants still choose this way once hear our stories?

    @sds I would suggest you should go through your agent to lodge a complaint as your agent is an authorised representative. And moreover you have paid your agent to deal with your application. If you’ll try to complain from your end they won’t give you details of the insight status of your application. I am just letting you know with my own experience. Good luck

    Freddy, please have a look at page 1460 of this forum. It says in a post there that they will get the benefits as they will be considered as permanent resident for benefits.

    No confirmed information anywhere states that 491 and 494 will get any Centerlink benefits.
