    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Just a quick post and update to try and keep everyone positive …. for 10-11 months I was as most are -- doing the 887 Hamster Wheel …. Got my golden email on 26.10.2018 … 7.12.2018 … bought my first Oz Property a brand new 4 bedroom house …. moved in to my new home with my beautiful family ...February 2019 ... The difficult bit is being patient waiting for the golden email -- I was not patient as I submitted complaints, contacted the Immi Helpline every week ...emailed immigration in Adelaide … The Golden Email will come eventually …. I am very thankful for all that I have and the opportunities that the 'Lucky Country' has given me …. Keep the Faith Good Luck everyone

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    OK, update time …... After 10 months almost to the day and lots of stress ….. I finally received my golden emails today at 10:55 am WOOO HOOO !!!! Timeline: 29.12.2017 - Applied for 887 Visa 10.07.2018 - Contact from C.O. - Nancy -- Requested updated AFP Police Check for me -- asked to resubmit evidence of 1 years full time employment in Regional Australia …. 18.10.2018 - Registered a complaint via Home Affairs Website re: moving the goalposts with Processing Times being extended and I was not accepting the 12 - 15 months time line for processing when it was 4-6 months when I first applied and in my mind that the visa processing timelines were being missed in my opinion. 19.10.2018 - Reply and acknowledgement of complaint from the Global Feedback Unit -- provided with information around Home Affairs Processing Times and how to check and my visa application was being processed within Australian Law and I had to wait - I was advised that my complaint would be forwarded to the relevant processing area for information. 26.10.2018 - 887 Visa Grant Notification received for myself and family. - C.O. - Adam Good Luck Everyone --- thankfully the wait for me is now over …… I will keep tabs to see how everyone else gets on …. keep positive and moving forward

    My AFP Check was 4-6 weeks before applying for 887 visa so I guess now it is 7+ months old from when the CO looked at my file
