    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Even though Call center is official source, it provides general information on visa and related issues (Recorded Disclaimer is provided at the start of the call) This is a specific question cannot rely on the information received from the call center to make decisions. It is advisable to have it in writing from the relevant department if anyone wants to make a decision relating to any move.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    To answer your question based on the "limited information available", you cannot stay outside regional areas till your 887 visa is processed. Having said that, I have tried to relate this legally, as per the act/legislation/policies the bridging visa is issued against the visa one applies for and conditions will apply as per that. In this case it is 887 which is a Permanent Residency visa which does not have any conditions. Legally speaking based on the visa you have one needs to be in compliance with that , the bridging visa states that there are no conditions which means at any time the applicant will be in compliance of visa conditions even though he is not in regional area. Given the limitation on the information available, it will be highly difficult for anyone in this group to 100% tell that it can be possible based on factual evidence. Conservative approach is to continue and stick to regional areas. If your circumstances are really trying the best option is to discuss with the immigration and work out a way. There is always a solution if one is ready to look for and invest time in finding one. Immigration website is silent on this for obvious reasons. Hope this gives some insight.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Tracker maintained in this forum is one way.. though it will not cover 100% population of all the applicants. Can give some indication/correlation to the processing timeline. Best source will be the department under FOI - Freedom of Information to get accurate details of total number for applicants. Not sure how did agent come up with 9-15 months.. as of now it is 18 months for 90% of the application as per the website. Lets c what's the update in January should happen sometime soon.

    Looks like the processing time will be going down further.. they are already into November now.. December 18 we have less applications as compared to previous months soon they would start with January 19. It will be beneficial for all December 18 to March 19 applicants to review and check their documentation to avoid any unwanted delays or query. Progressing well.. Best wishes to everyone.

    Thanks Stellajane, Much appreciated. All - Please share stories, where it can count and make difference. This forum can help all, but cannot get directly reach out to authorities. The hard work previously done is showing results, where the media is proactively wanting to cover the stories. So please act if you are struggling with the processing timelines.

    I don't think it will be case, It is a national emergency and been safe is utmost priority and rest of the things are secondary to it. looks like you have spoken at contact center, who would have just provided you a standard response. The situation is not within your control and it is as directed by the authorities and hence you will be fine. You can write to them stating your situation, given the timeline of responses, cannot see a response coming through in a swift manner. Still you should write to them and make it official. But also remember evacuation will basically done on threat level and if it goes down you will need to return where you reside currently( which you would). As moving then will not be justified. It is a wait, watch and act situation. Be safe.

    Not required really.. you can mention it in your summary document that you have stayed for initial 4 weeks in your friends house providing his contact details. It is reasonable and very much practical to understand that applicants coming new to the country, will have some sort of temporary arrangements for accommodation,it could be hotel/air bnb/relative's or friends house etc. so do not fuss much on this. As long as you have your accommodation papers in order where you have resided post the temporary stay. Regards

    That's good news... Applicants who are waiting long should share the stories to address the issues. Specially those who are 12+ months. These periodic news articles, will make a difference in long run to bring down the processing time. As there are many applicants waiting to get over the line. All these efforts count for everyone. Keep Contributing to the larger benefit of the group. Thanks @Stellajane for sharing the info. Much appreciated.

    Good work... good to know this.. I think they should be publishing this data on a monthly basis to keep the process transparent .. without a need of FOI.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    It is easy to be cynical on this , but the reality as of today also is applicants who have got things in order and right paper work are getting the direct grant with 12 to 15 months irrespective of the processing time lines. If applicants understand this and proactively submits any potential documents that could be requested, it might help to stop raising these questions.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    This is going as predicted.. as the number of applications are going down the processing time will get reduced. This is good news in long term. Feel sorry for the people who are being contacted and no action after that... but think it should be resolved in next 2/3 months considering way things are going. Stay hopeful.

    No worries.. Migration Agent - Not that I know.. applicants who have used agents might be able to assist.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Conservative approach.. wait for 90 days and apply. But as per legislation there is no definition around work travel, as long as you have maintained your residency and work in a regional area it is ok during that period (2 years). It all depends on how strong is your paper work and view case officer takes on your application. It can go either way, no one can guarantee. Individual will have no control when he or she works for the organisation since as per employment contract one will be required to work as per the location of the client/organisation requirements . Any such travel will be based on organisational requirements and should/will not be considered as breach of the visa condition as it is not employee driven. It could only raise more questions and add more paper work to application and hence better to wait for 90 days and apply. Hope that makes sense to your situation.

    May be.. but I doubt if anything will impact or change any 489 requirements for eligible postcodes. All this basically creates two classes of regional visa holders.
  21. TTTF

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Don't think there is any change for existing 489 holders or who have applied 887. Things remain same.
  22. TTTF

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yes correct , For 489 SA as a entire state is regional. 491 has a different definition.
