    887 Visa - What's the update?

    from 17/08/2017 to 11/08/2019 is 725 days , and you spent 4 nights in regional which totals to 729 days , so it looks like your'e short 1 day to fulfill the at least 2 years ( 730 days) stay in regional requirement. Co will count the days you actually spent in regional for 2 year regional stay requirement therefore the few days you spent in non regional sydney from your initial arrival won't be counted and this can lead to a refusal even if you're one or two days short , my opinion is that it's best to withdraw and re submit the application for peace of mind

    if you declared it on your 489 application and it didn't become an issue for 489 grant it's most likely it will not become an issue for 887. Most important thing they look at is if you overstayed your visa or of you became illegal , serious refusals with any exclusion periods applied as result of the onshore refusal , if any doubt better contact a migration lawyer to be safe

    We don't want to live with that fear and guilt for the rest of our life in Australia knowing that we are doing something wrong without sucking it up for a few more months but surprisingly there are people like this friend who tries to game the system and that delays files of all other genuine people too because this person is clearly willingly breaching visa conditions and do not even deserve to be in the processing Que using up immi resources , co's time that can be used to assess another genuine applicant who does the right thing and suffer in regional

    Did you submit your application through a mara registered agent? my understanding is that your wife will have to wait out the exclusion before she can apply for any permanent skilled migration visa or temporary visa

    If university can confirm mode of study is online / distance it shouldn't be a problem , for peace of mind if you want you can submit an offer letter or obtain a letter from uni which states the mode of study as online or you studied via distance education mode so co will know you physically studied while staying in regional otherwise be prepared to provide it if co ask you to confirm this

    Hi dhle, while it makes sense for us that those documents are good , like skaur said it's almost very likely that the co will come back to you and ask for all payslips for 12 months they have even asked people who already provided all payslips to provide certified copies just to drag finalizing cases so if you don't provide all ps for 52 weeks there's a 99% chance that they will ask for it at a later stage, if they ask you for them 12 months after you submit 887 it will be more difficult than now for you to obtain them , i know how difficult it is for us to get things done when working for a small company and have no hr or payroll , but since issuing payslips are a must for an employer regardless of how small the business is it's better if you can try and ask for them atleast for the 52 weeks before you submitted 887 , i think it's best to be on the safe side

    491/494 to have the same access to welfare and government services as PRs https://www.iscah.com/4465-2/?fbclid=IwAR3CmFCyeN-mAxfF0Ofi7_1USSxUUuS8jKal3AtElJBDJSLYQXyXsnliK-I don't mind waiting for PR forever if we had such thing in 489

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    1 and 2 should be ok, for 3 , its best if you can get payslips to confirm the hours you work if you are hired by your company as an employee they are legally required to issue a payslip within 1 day of pay day also since they are a legal requirement and part of record keeping requirements of fair work act payslips are usually considered a reliable way of confirming employment, so most probably co will come back to you asking for these and at that point you will have to ask your employer for payslips or get something in writing from the employer explaining that they do not provide payslips if you can , try and get the employer to issue you payslips even if it's simple it will help fair work site states that following info must be in payslips A pay slip must include all of the following: the employer's name the employer's ABN (if any) the employee's name the date of payment the pay period the gross and net amount of payment any loadings (including casual loading), monetary allowances, bonuses, incentive-based payments, penalty rates, or other separately identifiable entitlement paid. For example, a note could be included on a pay slip that the hourly rate incorporates the relevant casual loading. Additionally, where relevant, a pay slip must include any of the following: If the employee is paid an hourly pay rate, the ordinary hourly pay rate and the number of hours worked at that rate and the amount of payment made at that rate If the employee is paid an annual rate of pay (salary), the rate as at the last day in the pay period Any deductions made, including the name, or the name and number, of the fund or the account of each deduction If the employer is required to make superannuation contributions for the benefit of the employee: the amount of each contribution the employer made or is required to make during the pay period the name, or name and number, of any superannuation fund into which the In addition to that , if you have to submit timesheets for work etc you can add them too

    189/ 190 is better if you can secure one, but remember that 489 visa will end on 16th November therefore states will stop giving state nominations before this , if you have the opportunity to secure 489 nomination and don't receive an invitation for 189 / 190 before 16th november date then you can go ahead with your 489 application , while it's in processing ( 6- 8 months appx) if you receive 189 / 190 invite then you can withdraw your 489 application and lodge PR , if you don't lodge 489 and it ends and don't receive 189/190 invitation then you will have to apply for nomination from the state government for the newer version of 489 again which is 491 which has much more strict criteria to fulfill than 489

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    hi mate sorry about your situation hope she recovers soon , i think it's best if you move to a place within regional postcodes closer to the hospital if possible , you have worked very hard to complete requirements so don't risk it , living / working in non regional while on 489 is a breach of visa conditions , there was a guy who recently got refusal due to moving to city while waiting for the grant , while your wife might not have to do a medical again ( if her 489 medical had no issues ) you risk 887 refusal for breaching previous visa conditions , exclusion periods and the need to undergo medical for future visa applications if you get caught , i know it will be difficult but it's a matter of risking losing all and going back home where it will be much less convenient to get medical treatment or starting from the beginning or trying to manage for another year or so obeying visa conditions and not attracting negative co attention to your case, so consider moving back to regional area close to hospital asap if possible and try to consult a professional migration lawyer and get advice on what you can do about it

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I think even 489 stage is on priority processing it's 887 stage that they will make you stay longer i believe they will do the same for 491 , will advertise and process 491's smooth to get more applicants and will make them wait more at 191 stage which they have not advertised as priority processing and may end up like 887 , also new version of 887 ( 191) is also open for new version of RSMS holders which is now a temporary visa rather than a permanent as before , so both 491 and 494's will apply for this version of PR once eligible and i believe processing times will be much higher for this given the evidence and compliance requirements of 491/494 stage

    I don’t think it will be a problem I had the same issue when I asked immi at that time they said it will be understandable to cos if we travel to metro for compulsory work related training for regional company , I was sent to metro for a 3 day and then 7 day training by my company over 2 years however I will be more careful if it’s for extended periods of time or more frequent

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    it's very unfortunate for 887 applicants that they have to wait more than 12 months to get permanent residency , i know a person who only ever lived in Australia for just 4 days just entered to activate their 189 and went back offshore , they don't want to come settle in Australia for another year or year and half , never paid a single cent in tax but when they come back them and their kids will be eligible to access many things we hard working people in regional cannot access even with many years of paying hefty tuition fees . tax commitment etc. in Australia , atleast it's only fair if they grant 887 applicants their pr within reasonable time if all documents are there and clear
