    It is in "Attach documents" section, at the bottom of the page.

    I see. I am not sure how to go about this, because you will have to show your true addresses in form 80. You may have to ask an Agent, as guys said before me.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yes. Sometimes people are still legally married and they have to declare they have a wife, but in reality their wife is not immigrating with them. She will be a "non-accompanying" member. Or there was a situation where an applicant's wife was Australian. He listed her as a "non-accompanying" member. I know, weird. But she didn't need a visa and this is why he listed her this way on his application.

    Immigration is only starting to pick up March files now, very slowly. So don't panic, just wait, it should happen sometime soon. And the answer is yes, you can still attach additional documents for proof, but the documents should only relate to the period before your application date. Any proof for after the application date will not be considered. Important.

    It is all very confusing! So for the purpose of migration, your family members are your kids and wife/husband. They can be either accompanying or non-accompanying. "Other" family members are parents, siblings. Their details are entered in a special section of form 80, I believe.

    Hi @Gaurav, there are several COs working on our files and all of them are working on all files, there is no single CO allocated to your file.

    Welcome to the group! 1. Your mum shouldn't be on the application, please fill incorrect answers form for her to be removed. Family members to be included in your application are only kids and spouses. 2. No. Only for newborn babies. Immi only may ask for a medical from you in very very rare cases. 3. They removed the actual processing time from the website for whatever reason, I guess, it was becoming ridiculously long?

    Hi @Bronto, I understand, you will have no difficulties proving your 2 years living in regional area and 1 year working in regional area? That's great. Just show ONLY evidence related to 2 year live and 1 year work. You really do not have to show anything else to immi. Your circumstances are not straightforward and if you were to start explaining why you lived not where you worked at first, it will make your case quite complicated and it is irrelevant anyways. Just stick with the evidence you need to show to satisfy conditions of 489 to go to 887. Simples!!!!!

    Not necessary, but a lot of people still decide to keep it going.

    Thanks for sharing the news @Samuel. AFP is Australia Federal Police check (or national police check): https://www.afp.gov.au/what-we-do/services/criminal-records/national-police-checks They say 15 days processing, but mine was ready the following day. It took a week to arrive by post though

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    This week we had one member report that one March file was processed. But it was not anyone's from this forum, this was the info from the Agent. Rumours, rumours ...

    At the moment, the Department is processing January, February and March 2018 applicants, so you may have to wait a little longer...

    Same here. I have spoken to a friend of a former CO a few months back - they do not let on what is happening behind closed doors, but advised to be patient and not to worry, but to cooperate. Easy to say, not to worry!

    Hi @MPK, I don't think you can... You will be only allowed to attach documents by the system after your click 'submit' and pay for you application.

    Please be careful! You cannot travel with Bridging Visa A only, they will not let yo back into Australia. Make sure you have 489 still valid or you have Bridging Visa B issued. Good luck!

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yes, they have changed it with the new website. They used to ask to let them know about any travels, now they don't want to know

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Nobody knows... I applied for 887 in September 2017 can understand your frustration very well, still no grant. Please do not panic, just keep supplying additional documents as requested. There seem to be a huge pause in processing since November 2018, but they are starting to pick up now. Something is happening within the department but nobody knows what. So we are just sitting tight. The immi removed estimated processing time from their website, I guess, to eliminate the cause for complaints from frustrated applicants. You are not on your own.

    It will be a good idea for you to talk to the regional immigration office for Dubbo. Explain to them that your job currently is in regional Vic and ask them if they will supply you with the letter, stating that they do not mind you staying and working in Vic for the following years, untill application for 887. It will need to be an official letter of release. They most likely will be nice and will release you without problem. So when you apply for 887 you will just attach their letter to your application and there will be no problem. In my opinion it is the best way. But maybe the guys here have other suggestions? In any case, you are not breaching your visa condition because you live and and work in regional, but you are doing "a dirty" on your inviting state, which is not very nice... Just call them and chat with them. Let us know what they say.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    OK, I see. I meant more like applying for a new 489 while onshore... My friends did that recently and they got it in just a couple months. I guess, it is because they are already here, working. I am honestly a bit scared to advise anything here with little knowledge, I still think, talking to an agent is the best bet for @Nsingh.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi @Nsingh! I think, a good move for you to talk to a migration agent, just book 1 hour consultation, $200... I think, if you cannot "squeeze" 1 year full time regional work before your 489 runs out, there is an option to reapply for another 489, like an extension. But looking at dates, you both should be OK for working and living requirement, so no need to panic. You can be main applicant for 887 because you will have 1 year regional full time work by the time of application for 887. But looks like your partner also will accumulate 1 year regional full time work working for uber by the time of application, is it correct? he already has 5 months up his sleeve from working for previous employer in 2017.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    In my opinion, much better to renew passport. I think, it won't hurt, and you can apply for a new one up to 9 months before the old one's expiry date. Passport authorities are adding the time "not used" in the old passport to your new passport validity. If it makes sense... Yes, I also heard about 6 months thing.

    You can easily do it yourself if you have access to your immiaccount. Takes 5 minutes. But be sure to let your agent know that you did it.
