    Hi folks, its a bit cliche but i have been a silent follower of this post I’ve got my GRANT today at 4pm by case officer Nicci 🥳 (applied on 13th Mar 2018). You can’t imagine how much I appreciate you guys throughout this painful journey of waiting. Your advice and support have made my milestone come true. And I’m sure anyone here who is still waiting will receive their golden email in due time. Good luck to all of those. We are an amazing 887 community. Cheers!!!

    Hey our new member fried. Tried really hard to not to reply your comment, but couldn't... I don't think you are suffering from any of the above mentioned dilemmas/challenges. Otherwise you wouldn't judge people's frustration and situation so easily. Your proposed solutions are very good and easy but just on a paper not in a real MARRIED LIFE WITH CHILDREN AND RENTAL HOUSE!

    Hi guys, I put together a petition, please let me know if you want to add and remove anything. Do you think we still need to launch it? Stop processing delays for 887 PR visa This petition is a voice of onshore skilled migrants, who are transitioning from 489 (skilled regional provisional) to 887 (permanent residency) visas and currently are being hit with painful processing delays. Since this time last year we have been watching estimated processing times for 887 balloon from 5-7 months to 12-15 months. We are in quite a predicament, with our original visas expiring whilst we are waiting in the queue for our permanent residency. A lot of us are now on bridging visas, putting important life’s decisions on hold and unable to move on. A bridging visa is purely the right to be legally present in Australia while 887 is being processed, but for us it spells uncertainty, cancelled travel plans, inability to visit aging parents overseas, delaying university applications for children, etc, etc – we are all still waiting “to be allowed in”. No employer will consider us for a job while we are on bridging visas. No lender will offer us a mortgage or allow to finance a car, unless with ridiculously high interest rates and insurance premiums. Our families are not entitled to any help from the government or any discounts for childcare and older children’s university fees – yet we are paying taxes, just like citizens and permanent residents. In order to transition to 887, we all have satisfied conditions of our provisional visa, i.e. settled and worked full time in designated areas for a set period of time. We have done the hard yards, we are embedded here well and truly. We became a part of this country, we are ready to develop further, grow and continue to enjoy Australia and contribute to the nation’s wealth. Instead, we seem to be stuck in a never-ending limbo with not many rights but a pile of obligations. Uncertainty is mentally exhausting and it starts to affect our daily lives. Seeing constant extension of processing times, monthly advertised on the immigration site, makes it hard to maintain a positive mindset. Ever changing visa processing rules and new tentative legislation proposals add to anxiety. We appreciate that there are reasons for most visa subclasses processing delays, but it is not the reasons we are interested in. We are seeking solutions. We are already paying hefty fees for visa applications, in return we expect decent customer service and reasonable processing times. If this means further increase in application fees, so be it – small price to pay for the right to finally move on with our lives, have children, better jobs, buying family homes and travel the world freely. Most importantly, feeling like we finally belong. Please take steps to reduce processing times for 887 PR visas.

    2000 year ago, when I joined this forum. It was a happy time where people got there Direct grant in 5 -6 months. The closer I get to my dates, farther it goes. I completed my 5 months and it was at 7 months average. I complete my 6 months now its at 8 months. When I complete my 8 months it'll be at 12 months... I have a dream, some day... some day... when im with my grand children. When my grand children are married stick around me on my wheelchair. An old man would knock on my door. and he would say. Hi toot, My name is Adam and im from DIBP.... heres you grant.

    I appreciate your persuasive thoughts but back in our days when we applied the waiting time was from 6 to 8 months. People who had applied then had a plan to wait for eight months but thanks to the revised immigration policy, it is now double. Furthermore, buying a house or moving cities is not a few reasons why people are getting frustrated. There are applicants in the waiting list who are paying their kid's university fees out of their own pocket with zero government funding. Many of them living in regional areas where TAFE doesn't offer courses they need to get a reasonable job. Apologies for sounding a bit rude here because it is easier said than done. Put yourself in the shoes of a person who promised to marry their partner after eight months, who promised to visit their sick mum back home in a few months time, who promised their partner to extend their family soon but it is now taking ages for a single damn decision to come. Personally, I don't have any issues with the delay, I'm living in Adelaide, have all means to spend a satisfying life, not rushing to buy a home but for heaven's sake, there are people who are in heaps of trouble and one just can't say "what's the fuss why is everyone so frustrated - enjoy the beautiful country" .

    Hi Everyone , In the last 13 months or so i have opened my ImmI account everyday to check the status , But today some how i decided not to do so , and Guess what , I get a call from my agent sounding very serious and he beats around the bush scares me with a couple of stutters and says YOUR WIFE , CHILDREN AND YOU HAVE BEEN GRANTED THE PR. My time line is in my signature. The frustrating wait has finally ended, I wish you all the very best for your applications. last pointer , I did file a complaint yesterday stating all the facts of the correspondent with the request in the feedback. I suggest all who have been waiting for a long time to here back , please lodge a complaint. Will stick around and wait for for a few ppl to get over the line , with whom we have made a bond despite never knowing them personally. Regards Harvinder
