    887 Visa - What's the update?

    According to the spreadsheet I'm from Bangladesh today... which I am not, but again someone has not been careful with the data. My country has now changed 3 times in the past 2 weeks. Fellow applicants, we're all here for the same reason. Please be careful with applying filters, sorting data and such to the spreadsheet for your own investigation. Apparently your investigation changes the original file. Maybe better to leave the file as it is.

    If you're on your bridging visa - meaning that you have applied for a new visa AND your 489 has expired - then there are no more conditions and you are free to live, work and study within the whole of Australia.

    @Nsingh no, we're still waiting on 887. We just bought a property straight away when we came to Australia.

    Sorry, cannot help as we bought property whilst on 489. Luckily just prior to the current laws. Meaning that we did receive the 1ste home owners grant on the stamp duty but additionally were needed to pay the foreign investment duty which was $5k. Just after our purchase the laws changed and on a 489 now you need to pay double stamp duty I think + the foreign investment duty. 1st home grant is still applicable.

    Congrats on your grant!! Relocation between states possible even when state sponsored?

    Hi Jaknap3, welcome to the forum. It gives an indication of how many applied for 887 within a certain timeframe and where your application is at within that list. All because this 887 is based on first in first served it is helpful to understand if you can expect an email soon or not.

    @Russki Thanks for your kind reply. As said, I totally understand and no blame to anyone. It is hard to manage something like that. But if we do not keep notifying the problem on this forum, then the tracker will get totally out of control. Have you not applied yet for a job as migration agent? With this forum as a reference for your resume... you'll get hired straight away.

    Totally agree... As this forum is completely on a volunteer basis (which we all truly appreciate!) it is always going to be a bit of a problem I assume. It would be great if only a few people can get access to this tracker, but not an easy task to realise.

    Hi, somebody changed my country again on the excel tracker. Not that it really matters to me, but someone is messing up over and over again. Yesterday lunchtime it was still fine, when it showed Europe, now it shows Turkey. To everyone that is working on the excel tracker... please be aware that you do not make any changes to someone else's line. That brings the credibility of the tracker in danger. And we do not want that, because a lot of people rely on this tracker. Have an awesome day today, hopefully with a lot of grants!

    I think that you have a little spelling error in homeaffair. Should it not be homeaffairs (with an s)?

    Thanks @Bern83 for your reply. Your reply has given me the answer that our Competent English is also valid for 3 years. (after checking again with the homeaffairs website.) So we should be fine in that. Thanks.

    @Tt2, Can I ask what IELTS results your partner had when applying for the 489? And what did you submit for functional English evidence? Weird that they ask for kids medicals, as that indeed had been done for the 489 already. Are you able to ask CO to check if they are correct in that. On the other hand, it is annoying... but when it is only a GP visit it can be done easily. Or is there more involved in Medicals? @Bern83, from the tracker I can see that you applied 4/4/18, and haven't been granted yet. Correct? And IELTS dates from late '16, which is more than the 1 year valid date of it. And you weren't asked to redo the IELTS for second applicant? That's great, hope that will be the same in our case. Just trying to understand these 2 cases as apparently I'm in the same situation here.

    This week we did not had any CO requesting more documents. Great job everybody! Keep submitting as much documentation as necessary. (And I will update mine this weekend...)

    @russki, my country has changed also. I had my country blank and now it is India, whilst we are from Europe. Thanks for being such a support and inspiration to everybody. If there was an award for your determination and companionship, you would definitely receive it.

    On the homepage of your immiaccount, who do you have as applicants? I only have us (as a family) there and my parents and brothers are only visible under the attachments section. It says only "other documents" when I open their individual tap but I did not submit any documents there as they are not in my application.
