If your query is still unanswered you can contact us by phone, Monday – Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm (AEST) on 131 881 in Australia, except public holidays.If your query is still unanswered you can contact us by phone, Monday – Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm (AEST) on 131 881 in Australia, except public holidays.

    Hey ZL111, any employment, where you work for minimum 35 hours per week is fine. Casual or not. And it can be even two jobs - one working 20 hours per week, another one 15 hours per week - at the same time. As long as you have payslips, ATO tax docs, super statement etc - to prove your employment.

    There was a post on here when to call them best... Don't quote me, but I think it was 10am - the shortest queue. That said, better to start early!

    Yes, you have been waiting for nearly 8 months now, oh dear. I know it is a stupid advice, but if you have enough patience, try to contact them, call them or/and request a call back. And nudge them a bit, just ask if it would be a good move for you to do a medical for the baby and then ask how you go about it. It may get your file back to surface, because they will have to give you this HAP or whatever, for the baby. In the eyes of immigration you will be a "pro-active" applicant! I know calling them is a pain in the neck, but what do you have to lose (apart from a few hours of waiting in the queue...)?

    Oh, I see. You have been waiting quite a long while now, I am following your story, it's about time they contacted you. Have you done baby's medical exam? What's your timeline, can you please remind? Cheers!

    Hi Tsep, I see what you are saying now. A dependent child is usually on the same visa as parents, so she is on 489, same as you right now. And if you have bridging visa it should cover her too, by default. Is your 489 still valid? I think you should get a 887 grant for the whole family, including the baby. But if 489 is about to expire and still no grant, ring immigration and confirm about your baby's bridging visa, make sure she is covered.

    Hi Tsep mate, is it in relation to your baby? Sorry, I didn't read previous posts about this... I don't think I can help here, I have not been in this situation before... Sorry!!! Maybe, ask an agent?

    Hi slvicky, you've done well, good move! I personally never had much luck with CO replying to me, but they may just reply to you! I know that the agents sometimes reason with COs, and COs can drop some of their requests as a result. Unfortunately, we are not agents and have less chances of being heard. COs know that DIY applicants are not as aware of their rights, so they ignore us more that migration agents. I think, to be heard you have to get right into their face and be very persistent, haha!

    Hi mate, No, not at all. I counted only 6-7 months cumulatively being in Russia within the last 10 years. If that! This is why I didn't see it coming and was not prepared. I initially only supplied PCC for UK and AFP for Australia, assuming it would be enough. And no, CO never responded and in all honesty I didn't expect them to!

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi slvicky, so sorry to hear about your misfortune!!! Same story with me: they demanded Russian PCC, when I only visited for one months in last three years. If I were you, I'd email CO saying you have applied for PCC already, and that it will take 2 months. Attach application receipt and ask for extension. And wait. If they give you extension, then great. But if you don't hear anything back and your 28 days are about to expire, just attach your email you sent to CO and PCC application receipt - all as one PDF file - on immi account. This way you covered your back, you show the CO that you have asked for extension. It's documented. I bet, they'll not pick up your file dead on 28 days. Then keep waiting and as soon as your PCC arrives, attach it too with the explanation. And hit the magic button "information suplied". By that time they will be ready to look at your file!!! Voila. Sorry guys, not been around much lately - sick with flu. What do you think to this plan?

    Hi Raman, It's very hard to predict, they can come back and ask for more documents, but hopefully you will get a grant this time. You will have to wait a few weeks most likely, but the hard work is done, let's hope for a grant now! Fingers crossed.
