    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I think you should seek professional migration lawyers help with your 887 not just with proving the 1 year work requirement in regional but also because it looks like you have worked in non regional areas for extended period of time and it's best to check with a lawyer how to lodge your file without getting a hard time from co or complicating your case because to my knowledge working in non regional areas is not allowed while on 489 state sponsored visa , if you're still working in non regional you may have to change working locations of your job to limit to regional areas to avoid breaching visa conditions , so please seek professional help soon to clarify

    no , late super payments won't be an issue , it's just some people like in above published case forge documents make payments to employers to make it look like they worked for an employer , late super may have confirmed the departments suspicion in cases like above

    It shouldn't affect your grant , are you still working for the employer?

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    hi i think only paid employment counts , so if a person is employed on casual basis thy are not entitled for paid leave as part of their employment and if he works full time hours he/ she can use those payslips , but if he takes leave they don't get paid so he won't have any paid hours on payslips , part time or full time employees are entitled to paid leave as part of their employment

    Hi capboy, That's true , received a lot of rejections at initial stage due to not having pr/citizenship I believe the co's use superannuation statements , group certificates to cross check if you have genuinely worked for and employer and if your employment claims are genuine , also if people forge payslips a cross check with superannuation could help co's to see if the amount you've been paid reflects the hours you claim for employment. I think an employer has to pay your super atleast once every quarterly period , there are due dates that an employer must ensure they pay your super before that date otherwise they can be fined by ato , see the following link for due dates, https://www.ato.gov.au/calculators-and-tools/report-unpaid-super-contributions-from-my-employer/#Table1 if these due dates have passed and still the employer have not deposited your super , you can use following link to lodge a complaint so that ato will investigate your claim and probably contact the employer https://www.ato.gov.au/calculators-and-tools/report-unpaid-super-contributions-from-my-employer/ keep all your receipts you get when you submit these complaints/ receipts you get any outcome letters of your fairwork issue with previous employer , send a formal email to your employers company/ business email address mentioning your full legal name , that you have worked at that business from - to (dates) , position , salary paid , employment status and request an employment confirmation or a leaving certificate to reflect that information , also mention in email that you need to provide this information to the department of homeaffairs to confirm your previous employment if the employer does not respond or sends a response rejecting to issue a letter you can use a copy of these to show the co that you atleast tried to obtain the documents from the employer , and if you are still unable to get these documents , write a declaration with your application describing your issues in previous employment that results in you not being able to obtain certain documents , include copies of above complaint lodgement receipts to support your declaration why you can't submit super statements , etc from your previous employer unfortunately the law does not require employers to issue reference letters or contracts or offer letters or any sort of letter on a letterhead so i don't think a co can reject an application just because we can't provide an employment reference letter but a co can ask you for tax/group certs. superannuation statements , payslips , because employers are legally required to issue those to an employee it's important to have the date they issue you the letter but i don't think it really matters when you obtain the letter as long as it includes important information such as joined date and resigned date etc . in my case the employer simply didn't respond to couple of my requests which i sent 5 months ago , i will be sending another email requesting a letter close to my 887 application date , and if still they don't issue one then i will attach copies of these emails to show that i tried to obtain a letter but failed , iwe cant force an employer to issue us a reference letter if they are not legally required to do so anyway

    I enquired with iscah migration agent and they said it's not for 887 visa applicants I think it's about having an occupation in above lists if you are nominated/ sponsored by government / relative and applying for a 489 visa , not a condition or requirement of post grant

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I think it's an ato requirement for the employer to issue you group certificate by a certain date after end of each financial year , maybe you can ask your employer to give a copy of one if it fails ask ato if they can send you a copy of the group certificate that employer upload to ato , also are you getting paid superannuation? i have a similar issue with my previous job where i wasnt given an official contract , its a small business with no formal hr and only sent me an email offering the job which has no position details , also have an issue getting reference letter because i quit mid project and they are not happy about it and does not respond to my emails requesting a letter , however the payslips i've got say my employment status is full time , again no position details mentioned.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    samething happened to someone we know , 189 visa granted within 5 months they just punched the first arrival and went back to dubai to work , they grant pr easily for people who never ever lived here before and doesen't even have the immediate intention of living here and make people like us who contribute to economy and regional states and put our future on hold and make us wait a lifetime to get the pr thats a sad thing.

    How long is this project? also is it for the same company that you work for in regional/ lp / designated area? i had similar issue i was told by migration agent and dibp customer service via their facebook site enquiry that as long as it's compulsory work related to the company i work for in region , i maintain my usual residency in the region and the work trips are not more frequent in nature it should be fine , however it's better to give immigration a call and ask them to clarify.

    Not compulsory to have private insurance while ur on 489 visa , however it's recommended to have one specially if u have little ones. Doesn't affect ur 489 or 887 even if you don't have insurance , but i think just in case you or a family member had to be admitted to a public hospital for emergency and you couldn't pay the huge hospital bill it could end up being a debt to commonwealth which could affect ur 887

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi , what do you think will happen to people already holding 489 visa which was granted before any new rules introduced , should we still be able to apply for 887 after fulfilling the 2 year criteria , im eligible to apply end of next September and worried about how this will affect us

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I received an infringement notice for excessive speeding and received 12 month dl suspension this was in 2011 , when i applied for 489 last year i declared it , wrote the ifringment number , year it happened , what happened and how i never repeated any traffic offences again , and it didnt affect my grant , nothing showed up on my afp record about this but it's always good to be safe than sorry so i declared , traffic offences won't affect your visa grant negatively as only criminal convictions that result in jail time of 12 months or more affects the character requirement , if you did not receive an infringement notice and just a warning then don't have to declare it at all this won't affect ur pr , but make sure you won't repeat traffic offences of similar nature as this could become an issue when you apply for citizenship later

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I bought a car on finance while on student visa from nunawadin toyota in victoria , they dont mind which visa type you are on however they will look at the remaining duration of your current visa in order to calculate repayments i had 4 years left at that time , so if you have two years left on 489 then repayments will be high , if so it's better to wait for pr.
