  1. Hey Dee, I found this link online which should answer some of your questions here. Under the section "Prepare your documents" there is a tab on the right that says "show Steps" and this has all of the document information they require. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/become-a-citizen/permanent-resident#HowTo

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Not sure if anyone has responded to this yet so just responding anyway - If you hold a British Passport then that counts towards proving English ability. I would attach it to the immi account where it asks for functional English documents (as well as where you need to attach information about other passports (hope this all makes sense).

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yeah no problem. So I spent 67 days outside of Aus in the 2 year time period. I applied for the visa 2 years and 1 day after we had arrived here. So submitted my application 1 day after we met the 2 year requirement!!! Looking back I would have given myself more time (at least a couple weeks)!!! BUT I just didn't realise! I only realised there was restrictions on time spent outside of Aus because of this forum. It probably should have been obvious to me, but I did not think about it when I was submitting (silly me). This forum had the most valuable information, and had the answers to my questions !!!! Some amazing members here!!

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Yeah sure. So I wrote a letter with all the countries I had been to, the dates of travel, and the total days spent in each country. And then I had the total number of days spent outside of Aus. It states this was to see if I needed an updated PCC - so potentially if you have this (PCC) then great, otherwise I would do the letter (I never got an updated PCC because I hadn't been home, but in hindsight, it uploading one may have meant I could have got a direct grant). And also include reference to whether or not you have been home if you do the letter. As a reference below is what they asked from me. Please provide a list of countries (other than Australia) that you have travelled to after you initially entered Australia as the holder of your Subclass 489 visa (from 01 February 2017 onwards to the current date). Please include all international trips, names of all countries visited on each trip, and how many days (including partial days) spent in each country. This information is required in order to determine if you require new police clearance certificate/s for the Character Test for your Subclass 887 application. Please ensure that you include all international trips. Omission of any trips or dates will result in further delays as we continue to seek information from you. If you have travelled back to South Africa for at least two months cumulatively in this period, you will be requested to provide a new (current) police clearance certificate from South Africa. If you would like a guide of how to respond to this request, you can use the table at Question 18 of Form 80 to assist you. If there is insufficient space, you can provide further details in your own format such as a Word document or Excel spreadsheet.

    They asked for detail around all the travel I did (I did lots of business travel) And they specifically asked if I ever went back home (I think they were wanting to see if I needed to get an updated PCC - which I never got or added as I had not been home since arriving in Aus).

    Have you guys complained? I was contacted in April (2 Feb applicant) and it terrifies me to think I would need to wait months and months more before being given my grant.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Hi there, No - you need to have lived in the regional area for a full 2 years before you submit your application! People even give it a little extra time to ensure they meet this requirement.
