475 to 887 Visa application

    Recommended Posts

    OMG can someone please help...I'm obviously being totally thick here, but we are up to applying for the 887PR

     

    We have met all the criteria and started he online application...thing is the application doesnt seem to make sense!

     

    The application was more about past qualifications and a full blown application giving us a points allocation near the end WTF!!! is this right? tried ringing the immigration office but they only work part time 9am to 4pm!!! Mon - Friday are we filling in the right form / e-application.

     

    We've scourred through google and the forums but everybody seems to have managed to apply for the upgrade in the right place!blink.gifredface.gif

     

    Thanks Loads Shirley & Chris

    Hi, it seems that are a few of us going through this process at the moment. If you take a look at this thread it may answer some of your questions. http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/adelaide-migration-issues/18980-887-online-applications-when-upload-docs.html

    The link you want for the application is http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/general-skilled-migration.htm and click the link Application for a General Skilled Migration visa then click that you agree to the terms and conditions and follow it through. Most, if not all, of the info required is a duplicate of what you gave for your first visa. I don't know if this is the form you have found but it s the one we and others have used.

    Good luck

    Martin

    Ah! thanks Martin,

     

    Yes when we reviewed what we had done, we had only gone and selected the wrong Visa number ... Not so bright hey....must have been the excitment!...well thats my excuse anyway! :biglaugh:

     

    One thing you may be able to help on is the Police checks, do we need to resubmit the UK one as well as an uptodate Australian one?

     

    Thanks

    We did as it was asking for them, but then the request disappeared so I don't think we actually needed to. Never mind they can delete them if they don't need them.:policeman:

     

    Good luck with your application.

    Hello

    We have just recieved our 887 visa. We did not submitt the original UK Police checks and were not requested to supply them, I have been told it is only if you have left the country whilst on your visa for a few months or more, and this also applies for medicals.

    Thanks all for your advice, the Police Check requirement off the chcklist have been removed - so we're taking it that they don't require then? - will see what happens.
