    Q1. No AFP required for baby I assume you will have HAP ID at some point, yes. Otherwise, you cannot do a medical. Q2. Combining PDFs into a single file is exactly what they want us to do. They need to be combined logically, like "Residency proof - utility bills" - and combine all bills in chronological order. Q3. It is a good question. Requirement for a passport photo is a throw back from paper applications days. Some people submit them electronically, some don't. I would do it. Just go to any pharmacy, ask them to do a passport photo and ask them to give an electronic version of it (.JPEG file). Attach in immi account. Or you can scan any existing (not very old) passport photo.

    No, everyone in the same one pile... No special treatment for any states, so it seems.

    Thanks for promoting our petition @nudgee, I am really slack these days. Please guys if you are writing to your MPs about the problem with processing time, add this petition link in your email.

    I wonder why. Did you have to translate it?

    Financial year and immigration year start at the same time. So if the quotas for certain visas run out, remaining applicants will have to wait for beginning of new financial year. So, yes, in a way, we depend on quotas.

    As much proof as possible, really. Yes, you can write a clear short explanation note. Mention all people you shared the house with. Add statutory declarations from you, and if possible from every person you shared with. (As long as they over 18 of course). Attach a certified copy of person's ID with each statutory declaration. If you can show some other solid documents, like bank statement showing transactions of your money to landlord or one of the people you shared with, this would be good. Regular transactions of rent money. If you have any property lease or written renting agreements, add those to the pile. Add in a separate PDF any other proof of residency at this address. I know, CO has not asked for it, but it will help. Like your driver's licence, letters, rego documents, bills etc. Bills especially. Guys, any more ideas?

    Hi, I reckon, if you complain now, immigration may send their standard "within processing time" response... But it may be worth a go. What do you have to lose? You can use Global Feedback form online.

    Hi guys, sorry, I have not been on forum much. Sorry to hear this is happening again. Unfortunately, the tracker is not mine, it is set up by someone else. I can contact the owner of the tracker ask to restrict editing rights to several trusted people. But we need to agree who this will be. These people should be daily updating the tracker.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi guys, Sorry I cannot help much with this, because I am not applying for anything - I do not have a young family and I earn good money, so I just assumed that I will not be entitled to anything. The information attached may help you guys to start with, but I think it is best to go straight to Centrelink office and see what you can claim. website-narwp-post-passage-factsheet-etcom-waiting-period-02-jan-19_0.pdf

    Pre-grant is just an email from the CO, informing that your case has been finalised. Means, your visa is ready to be granted but not all applicants are in Australia. So CO is saying: "Here is your grant, waiting for you, get all applicants to Australia and receive your grant!" We just call it "pre-grant" because it is not official yet.

    Yes, you are lucky if you already have a job, when BVA comes into effect. I was on bridging visa for almost a year, but my employer never questioned it as I was with then for a while. My son started looking for a job during our period on bridging visa and he struggled, all employer were turning him down. But as soon as we got PR he immediately got employment.

    It is really up to you, I think, how to organise the documents, but nice to do it according to some logic. For instance, you can collect residency proof in 3 piles: address 1, address 2 and 3. And scan into 3 PDFs. Call your PDF accordingly: J_Smith_Residency_Proof_Address_1_From_Jan-17 J_Smith_Residency_Proof_Address_2_From_Mar-18 etc. Just as an example, you can organise everything totally differently. Just make sure CO can clearly see what's happening.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    There is no standard way, but good idea to make it as clear as possible. Examples: John_Smith_Birth_Certificate_Original John_Smith_Passport_UK John_Smith_Marriage_Certificate_Translated John_Smith_AFP_Certificate_Jan_2019 John_Smith_Payslips_2017-2018 John_Smith_Residency_Proof_2017-2019 Etc

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi @Chieu, the rule is, you have to have your son in Australia with you when you apply for 887 and he also has to be in Australia with you when the visa is granted. I am sorry to bring bad news... This is because 887 is an "onshore" visa. But good news - he does not have to be in Australia between application date and grant date.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    The 12 months rule seems a lot of bulls**t. I got asked for police clearance after being in a county on holiday for 4 weeks only. Same happened to other members. Really to be on the safe side, better to produce a new police certificate.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    In the past, one CO was "assigned" to your file after applications submission and the same CO would look after your file and grant your visa. These days COs do not get assigned to a file. Any random CO picks up any file for assessment, so you may be contacted by 2-4 different COs during processing. But people still use the term "assigned". If someone says: "CO assigned" it just means that "CO contacted me".
  23. Russki

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yes, all applicants need to be in Australia.

    We can add you - just give us your application date and your (OPTIONAL!) country of origin. Or you can ask for editing rights for the tracker and add yourself.
