  1. I am aware of that... I was just responding to zeeshanov's query
  2. are you applying for 887 or citizenship? If it is 887, you'll need to wait until you complete 2 years before you can fill and submit application.
  3. I remember most of the user names here from our 887 days. I am glad that this is not as complicated for most of us My timeline: applied- 07/07/21 invite for test- 22/08/21 voluntarily rescheduled test to 30/09/21 application updated to approved status on same day--- waiting for ceremony now! location : adelaide

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I just uploaded the statement available through online banking and that was accepted. You'll need to unlock/decrypt it as it does not get added in original format.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I was asked for proof of functional English too. I have raised a complaint already saying that it's not part of req for 887. If the complaint is not resolved in my favor, I will have to aproach ombudsman. I don't see a point in waiting to sit the test again, especially when there are no dates avail for exams.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Sorry, but I don't think it's true. I've been through the specific legislation for 887 and it talks about functional English requirement for dependents only. I'm happy to be proven wrong, as this will put to rest a lot of apprehension we've had about this topic.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Thanks, I would prefer that too. Its been just over a week since I submitted my complaint and waiting to hear back from them. I just feel that as 887 applicants, we have been pushed around too much. Firstly, with having to wait so long for our cases to be picked up, and then we have to deal with obnoxious requests by CO's. So if Functional English is a requirement, it needs to be updated in the legislation first and then on the website.

    It shows up under req docs while filing for 887, so i uploaded it. It wasn't 45*45 though. My CO contacted me for other docs, but did not mention anything about photo.

    I have done the same thing. was asked to prove functional English. I have raised a complaint for them to provide me excerpt from legislation. I could easily sit for an English test and clear it, but I don't wish to do so... My req for more info was from nsw.pse, so I'm guessing this CO used to mainly deal with offshore applicants and does not have indepth knowledge about 887's. Have you been asked to prove English skill on first contact as well?

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    So, there is no English requirement for the 887 visa if the primary applicant is the same for the 489 and 887 visa. There is no mention of it on the website or in the legislation, but of late, we have seen CO's asking for functional English. I am in the same boat, I have raised a complaint and also replied to their request saying that functional English is not a requirement for 887. I raised the complaint on the 18 and was told I will have an update by the end of this week.

    Congratulations! How did you raise the complaint? Did you do it on the website or by replying to the 'request for more info' mail?

    good point! On another note, has anyone heard of any 887 rejections for any reason whatsover?

    I am not sure how much time you have to have this resolved, but I am guessing you may be able to go to the Ombudsman on this. Any thoughts from others?

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I agreed with you. I have looked through the legislation and there in no mention of an English requirement for the primary applicant. I saw a migration lawyer confirm this on a post on FB, and was willing to provide help to affected cases for a fee. But they might not be willing to help change this or resolve this confusion permanently, as this is a way for them to make money from clients.
