    ACTION REQUIRED FROM ALL US NEW SBS NEWS ARTICLE IN THE PIPELINE Hi guys, last August-September 2019 we - as the 887 community on this forum - experienced some true struggles as the DHA was increasing the processing times over and over again. At that given point it was up to 23-24 months processing times. Really happy to see that they have decreased the processing times now, but still they are a loooong wait if you're waiting on your grant to further built up your life. On this forum a few people organised some media attention and a few articles were published on SBS Punjabi. And with some success! My personal story was published also within one of those articles and YES we did receive our direct grant on 11/11/19. I do believe that the media attention did trigger something with DHA as a lot of 887 applicants did receive an additional email stating that their case was going to be assessed soon. Anyway... media attention is great to address the never ending limbo 887 applicants are in. DHA should decrease the processing times to at least an appropriate level as we all have been in the country for 2 years already. Mr. Shamsher Kainth from SBS Punjabi contacted me today again to follow up on my case and requesting if I did receive my grant, hence that he is ON the case and that he does care. HE WANTS TO WRITE A NEW ARTICLE FOR SBS REGARDING THE STRUGGLES WE'RE FACING WHILST WAITING FOR OUR PR. his email address: shamsher.kainth@sbs.com.au He needs to have information from you! Please write him a letter to describe what your struggles are, why your case seems to be delayed (asking for additional paperwork whilst already provided, not getting the information for the baby medicals on time, not getting another job application because you're temporary, al those things,..), what you want from DHA (more clear information regarding processing times, better communication,...) and what you reckon could improve. Grab this opportunity with both hands. Every media attention that you can have is great. Cheers, Stellajane. @TTTF@Dee@nudgee@Megrand1@TakeItOnTheChin@887 2019@Skaur@SUDIP@Hope

    To ALL whom are above the 12 months waiting period. I'm reposting my post above from last week. Altough I already have received my PR, I do believe it will be of great help if you write Shamsher your story. TAKE ACTION - If you have complied to your visa conditions - have NO FEAR of getting your story published in the news. Good luck!

    Hello every one. I got my grant for 887 yesterday which I had applied on May 2018. On 2nd of jan I had made an online complaint that why my file is not finalised as it’s over 18months of lodgement and they finalised it within few days. I would recommend my fellow applicants that if you are waiting for more than 18 months than lodge a complaint online today. Wish you all the best.

    I don't think it will be case, It is a national emergency and been safe is utmost priority and rest of the things are secondary to it. looks like you have spoken at contact center, who would have just provided you a standard response. The situation is not within your control and it is as directed by the authorities and hence you will be fine. You can write to them stating your situation, given the timeline of responses, cannot see a response coming through in a swift manner. Still you should write to them and make it official. But also remember evacuation will basically done on threat level and if it goes down you will need to return where you reside currently( which you would). As moving then will not be justified. It is a wait, watch and act situation. Be safe.

    Here's an update from my side, we applied on the 02 July 18. On the 03/01/20, I sent a complaint to the department saying that I crossed the 18 months period specified on the website. Got the standard reply saying that the email has been transferred to the appropriate department. on the 07/01/20, got a reply from CO Dat, saying that the evidence I submitted as requested by CO Sophorn on 23/05/19 is not valid. It took them 9 months to give me this feedback. I'm sure that my complaint triggered them to check my file but to get this as an answer is plain pathetic. I gave them exactly what they requested and now they are saying that it is not valid and gave me another 28 days to submit an EILTS result or another proof of functional english for the secondary applicant. I'm spewing!!! I guess the take away for everyone here is that if you are past 18 months, file a complaint straight away to force them to open your file, before the time increases again. However, they might come up with some other crazy stuff for you to do.
