  2. 887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi SRKNA, I am not an expert, but I can't see why not. He can apply for 887 up till the last day of his 489 visa validity. He will be issued bridging visa on application and can stay in Australia legally waiting for decision... Anyone knows otherwise?

  8. 887 Visa - What's the update?

    Erm... pretty sure I saw this info somewhere... I am trying to find it and can't. Anyone can confirm 6 months minimum passport validity requirement? I remember seeing something like: "It is strongly recommended that your passport is valid for at least 6 months at the date of application, bla-bla-bla..." I will try to find it for you. Hope I am not going crazy...

    Woooohooo!!!!! Well done! Congrats! See, and you were so worried!
  10. 887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi Wali, As Ruben says, start renewing your passport now, but don't worry much - you are well within timeframe for 887 application requirement. The rule is - you should have minimum 6 month between your visa application date and your passport expiry date, which you have. Good luck mate. PS I actually had less than 6 months when I applied, but I managed to quickly renew old passport and updated details on immi account.
  11. 887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi Navi, No, it shouldn't affect anything, your file still is in the queue and you can keep attaching documents until it is picked-up for assessment.
  12. 887 Visa - What's the update?

    Guys, do not panic I think, this only reflects the "Christmas one extra month lag" in processing we all already know about. What Immigration is actually saying, they have been processing slower in the last two months. And we know why - Christmas holidays. I bet, it will "shrink" back to 7-9 at some point. This is just my thoughts, what do you think?
